Harry Kane has recently been linked with a move away from Tottenham Hotspur but there’s no way Jose Mourinho will allow the Lilywhites hitman to join Manchester United, according to Rio Ferdinand.


Widespread reports in recent months have suggested the England captain Kane will be open to the idea of plying his trade elsewhere and it is believed that the Red Devils are monitoring the Tottenham talisman.


But former Leeds and Man Utd centre-back Ferdinand doesn’t think the Spurs boss Mourinho would allow the deal to materialise.

"Would I take Harry Kane now? Of course you would," former United centre-back Ferdinand said on Instagram Live.


"If he's fit and he's raring to go, you take Harry Kane at Man Utd, 100 per cent.


"Top player, you're guaranteeing goals, in the Premier League you're guaranteeing goals.


"This geezer scores goals but I don't see Tottenham letting Harry Kane go.


"And with Mourinho there, I don't see Mourinho letting him go to Man Utd."

United are also linked with Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho, who Ferdinand believes would be a sensational signing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.


"I would take Sancho all day, to Man Utd," Ferdinand said. "Whether we'll get him, though [who knows?].


"Great player, great potential, English, he's brilliant. I would take Sancho now."
