Harry Kane tipped to make shock transfer with the striker 'already building a house' near club

Harry Kane tipped to make shock transfer with the striker 'already building a house' near club

This would be a surprise move.

Harry Kane has been tipped to complete a transfer away this summer - but not to Manchester United.

Erik ten Hag's side are keen on bringing England's record goalscorer to Old Trafford this summer, with The Telegraph claiming earlier this week that United have made initial moves to sign him.

Kane's current Spurs contract expires next summer, and although both parties have entered initial talks, no agreement has been reached as of yet.

Therefore, there remains the real possibility that the 29-year-old could depart the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer, ending a 19-year association with the club.

United face Spurs tonight in north London in a Premier League fixture, and Ten Hag was full of praise for Kane in his pre-match press conference.

The Dutchman said (quotes via United's official website): "It is quite clear his impact on the game from Spurs. And we have a plan, of course, for that and in the home game we did very well.

"So yeah, for [Thursday], we need a very good plan as well. You have to defend as a team and he is a clever player, so don't allow him to come in the situations where he can have a big impact on the game."

However, United have been tipped to miss out on Kane's signature this summer.

Kane tipped for surprise move

Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp thinks that Kane could move across north London to Chelsea instead of joining United.

Redknapp was in charge at Spurs between 2008 and 2012, with Kane signing his first professional contract at the club during that spell.

He appeared on the bench twice in 2009, but did not make his senior debut until the 2011/12 season, when he featured six times in the Europa League, scoring once.

Instead, Redknapp sanctioned two loan spells for Kane, to Millwall and Leyton Orient.

Speaking on the Beyond the Pitch, the 76-year-old said he thinks that the striker is building a house in north London - and claims he would be happier staying in the area.

He said: "It will be interesting [for Kane] if Mauricio Pochettino goes to Chelsea.

"That [a move] wouldn't go down well with the Tottenham fans at all, that's for sure. It's a great move for him and I think he's building a house in that area.

"He's a family man and he'd be happier not moving to the north of England or wherever he'd have to go."
