Harry Kane 'perfect for Manchester United' says Darren Bent, but Tottenham striker would 'still cost £100million' even with one year left on contract

Manchester United would be the ideal move for Tottenham striker Harry Kane next summer, says Darren Bent.

But the ex-Spurs star isn’t convinced the England captain will leave, given chairman Daniel Levy would still want a whopping £100million for him – even if he had ‘two weeks left’ on his contract.

Bent thinks he knows the perfect place for Kane to go

Tottenham are currently going through a rocky patch, losing two games on the spin in the Premier League, as well as drawing with Sporting Lisbon in their latest Champions League outing – with that game ending in huge VAR drama.

One of their saving graces in this time has been star striker Kane, who has ten goals in 12 Premier League appearances this season.

Kane was heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Manchester City last summer, but the deal fell through after chairman Levy wasn’t satisfied with City’s offer for his talisman.

The England captain has been at Tottenham since 2004 when he entered into their youth ranks. However, his current deal has just 18 months to run until it expires in the summer of 2024.

With no silverware to his name despite his stunning scoring record since his first-team breakthrough in north London, talkSPORT Drive host Bent claims he should look to leave if Tottenham’s trophy-less run continues under Antonio Conte this season.

And he knows the perfect place for Kane to go if the striker wants to end his wait for top honours.

“Where does he go? That City bubbles gone,” he said.

When asked by co-host if City’s rivals Manchester United could be a good alternative, Bent replied: “United would be perfect, they need a centre-forward.

“So that makes sense.”

However, the ex-Spurs star isn’t sure if Kane will want to say goodbye to the club where he has spent his entire career.

“I’m not convinced he’ll leave,” he said.

“One, Harry loves the football club. Two, someone’s got to sum up the money.

“It was pretty clear last season that he wanted to leave.

“Man City were the ones pressing the issue, clearly they never came up with enough money and its believed they bid £140m but didn’t get him.

“They clearly believed that he was worth it, but Spurs thought he was worth more.

“Spurs are a club where if you don’t hit the price they want, you’re not going anywhere.”

Given Kane will have just one year left on his current deal at the end of the current campaign, it’d be expected his price tag would lower given a player’s value typically diminishes the more time runs down on their contract.

But Bent doesn’t see it this way, saying he’d still cost a cool £100m, which could ultimately stop him from leaving, even if he wanted to.

“I still think around £100m,” he said.

“There’s no way Daniel Levy will let him walk out for £60m. He could have two weeks left on his contract, Daniel Levy will still want £100m.”

He continued: “I don’t think it’s a guarantee he goes.”
