Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT he doesn’t believe Harry Kane will leave the club.
The Spurs striker, who hit 56 goals in 2017 – more than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues – has been consistently linked with moves away from the club, with Real Madrid reportedly keeping tabs on his availability.
But Redknapp, who gave Kane his Lilywhites debut in 2011 in a 0-0 draw with Hearts in the Europa League, insisted he can’t see the player moving on right now, especially if he’s given a bumper new contract.
“I don’t see Harry Kane being a player who leaves Tottenham,” Redknapp told The Warm Up.
“I think he’s happy there. If he gets a good contract and he’s looked after I don’t seem him chasing big dreams elsewhere.
“Tottenham beat Real Madrid this season in the Champions League. At Barcelona, with the players they have got there and the way they play [would he fit in]?
“Tottenham are a big club, they are in the top four or five clubs in this country so I would think he’s quite happy. His life is probably fantastic at the moment.”
And, with Spurs looking at giving the striker a pay rise, Redknapp believes he should be getting a hefty sum for his incredible form in front of goal.
He added: “Well, with Raheem Sterling they are talking about £250,000 a week so Harry Kane has got to be £300,000 a week.
“It’s great for Tottenham if they can hang onto their players.”
