Redknapp: Levy knows what selling Kane would do to Tottenham

Ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has suggested why the club's chairman Daniel Levy won't sell Harry Kane this summer.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show for talkSPORT that he feels the club’s chairman Daniel Levy, knows what selling Harry Kane would do to the club’s fans.

Kane was Tottenham’s top scorer last season and is popular with plenty of the club’s supporters because of the way he progressed into the first team at White Hart Lane from the club’s youth system.

TalkSPORT suggests that Kane is a target for Manchester United, but Redknapp can’t see the move happening.

“If Harry Kane left Tottenham there would be uproar. It would send out all the wrong signals to Tottenham fans,” he said.

“I don’t think Daniel Levy will sell Harry. He knows what that would do to the club.”

How important is Kane for Spurs?

He’s hugely important because after him, the attacking stocks at the club are very thin on the ground.

He’s adapted well to the way that manager Mauricio Pochettino likes to play his football and he’s been successful in a side, which is based around having him at the top of the attack.

If the club sold Kane, there would be huge pressure on the manager to find an effective replacement and pressure on the club’s board to back the gaffer as he goes about his business.

Why would the club sell Kane?

They wouldn’t, unless a massive offer came in for the player or if the player himself made it clear that he wants to leave.

It’s extremely doubtful that Manchester United would be willing to pay an extremely high fee to get a deal done and Kane hasn’t made any noise, which suggests he’s looking for a Tottenham exit.
