Harry Redknapp has claimed that Nuno Espirito Santo’s appointment is unlikely to convince Harry Kane to stick around at Tottenham.
Manchester City were initially backed to make a big effort for Kane this summer but recent reports have cast doubt over whether the transfer is likely to materialise.
Pep Guardiola admitted earlier this week that City might not be able to afford some of the prices being quoted for strikers.
Meanwhile, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham have been clear privately that they have no intention of selling Kane and that it would take a near-world record fee to even tempt Daniel Levy to the negotiating table.
Gold also added that the North London club do not expect the striker to down tools if he does not get a move this summer.
However, Redknapp believes that the decision will come down to Kane himself and that the England captain is unlikely to be convinced of Spurs’ ambition.
The former Tottenham manager said on his own podcast: “It’s what Harry decides to do.
“I don’t know whether bringing this guy (Nuno) in is going to make Harry go ‘yeah, this guy’s a winner, we are going to win things here, take off now and bring another three or four good players in’.
“I don’t see that happening. I would say that there is every chance Harry will move on.”

I understand why Redknapp feels the decision will come down to Kane as player power has increased over the years.
However, the only way the 27-year-old will get a move this season is if he downs tools and that is certainly not something you would expect from a model professional like him.
The most likely scenario is that Kane gives us one more season, refuses any new contract offered, forcing the club to cash in on him next summer.
