Harry Redknapp believes Harry Kane would be ‘the perfect' striker for Premier League giants Manchester United. The England international has been a key member of the Lilywhites over the years, scoring 181 goals for the north London club. He recently declared that he would be opened to a move away from Spurs if they do not match his ambition to win silverware, saying he would not stay at the club ‘for the sake of it’. According to reports from the Metro, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is said to have been annoyed by those comments and is willing to sanction the sale of the 26-year-old, as long as any suitors are prepared to pay a world-record £200million fee. However, Ex-Tottenham, Portsmouth and West Ham coach Redknapp reckons Kane will be a good addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad but isn't convinced the Red Devils have enough quality - like Jose Mourinho's side - to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City. He told talkSPORT: ‘Harry Kane is a special player, he’s the best centre-forward certainly in the Premier League and of his type, I don’t think there’s a better centre-forward anywhere. ‘Okay, he’s not Messi, he’s not Ronaldo, but as a centre-forward that does what he does, there isn’t anyone better. ‘He would be a great fit for Man United, he’d be a great fit for any team… but Man United at the moment are not better than Tottenham. I wouldn’t say there’s much between them, both teams are trying to get into the top four. ‘Whether Real Madrid or Barcelona came in, he might fancy a move like that one day. ‘But at the moment he belongs to Tottenham, and unless Jose Mourinho and Daniel Levy decide to will cash in if it’s a crazy offer and rebuild the team with that money, unless Jose says, ‘I’ve got three players here we can sign and build a better team with’, then I’m sure he’ll stay at Tottenham.’
