Ferdinand urges Man Utd, Man City and Liverpool to purse Spurs star

Rio Ferdinand believes that Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool should all be looking to raid Tottenham Hotspur for Harry Kane during the summer transfer window. 

Kane has arguably been the Player of the Season in the Premier League so far, with the striker sitting joint second in the race for the Golden Boot while also leading the assists charts

Predictably, the 27-year-old’s future has been subject to a lot of speculation recently, with two Manchester Clubs and Paris Saint-Germain said to be interested in snapping him up in the summer.

However, reports indicate that Spurs are determined to hold on to their talismanic striker, with some journalists even suggesting that the North Londoners have even begun talks with him over a new contract despite his current deal having more than three years to run.

Ferdinand admitted that he would love to see the England captain winning silverware and urged the Premier League’s big-hitters to purse the Spurs star.

The pundit said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE (as relayed by HITC): “I want to see him lift trophies. 

“He is an unbelievable talent. He has got ridiculous ability, fantastic goalscorer, a good guy.

“If I am Man United, if I am Man City, if I am Liverpool, if I am Chelsea, I would take him. 

“Chelsea can’t get him. But if I am one of them three teams, I would take him now.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

If Kane is to leave Spurs for any other English club, it is going to be Manchester City. I do not think he would want to risk going to United given that they themselves have struggled to win trophies since Sir Alex left. Liverpool are unlikely to be in a position to afford him. 

City are the only club that could stump up £150m+ for Kane and the only place where the Tottenham man would be guaranteed to win a Premier League title or two. However, I suspect that Pep Guardiola’s side are likely to pursue Haaland or Mbappe as those deals represent better value for money in the long-term.
