Is Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane or Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic more valuable?

Jamie Redknapp has told SkySports he would choose Harry Kane over Zlatan Ibrahimovic every time, if pressed to pick between the Tottenham and Manchester United strikers, even adding he could envision the Spurs ace as his replacement.

Speaking pre-kick-off on the channel's live coverage of United's 1-0 win over Spurs at Old Trafford, Redknapp argued that he feels Kane offers more than the Swedish superstar.

Kane won the golden boot in the Premier League last season, while Zlatan was leading PSG to a fourth consecutive league title, prior to his United switch.

Both have been important players for their respective teams this season, with Zlatan on eight league goals and Kane on seven.

Kane has a better minutes per goal ratio, according to The BBC, scoring every 122 minutes compared to Zlatan's 158.

Redknapp said: "I'd rather have him (Kane) in my team than Zlatan. It's not even a question.

"He offers a lot more for his team. He is a player in a few years you could see wearing a number nine shirt for United, or any other top team."

Fortunately for Tottenham Hotspur, Kane recently committed his future to the club, signing a long term contract.

Kane became the club's record earner, with The Sun reporting the new deal would net him £150,000 per week.

There is little prospect of Redknapp's prediction coming true any time soon, while his belief that the England ace is a better player than Zlatan, is an opinion which will divide Tottenham and Manchester United fans.
