Jamie Redknapp has told Harry Kane that he has to push for a move away from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, given the current crisis at the club.
Harry Kane has just one year left on his contract at Tottenham and reports over recent months have indicated that the striker will not sit down for negotiations over a new deal until a new head coach is in place at the club (Football Insider).
However, Manchester Evening News revealed a couple of days ago that Manchester United are operating under the assumption that Spurs will not sell their talisman this summer and are thus assessing other number nines.
The publication revealed that while the 29-year-old remains on the Red Devils’ radar, they have no interest in playing games with Daniel Levy, knowing well that the Spurs chairman could drag out the negotiations.
The report added that Erik Ten Hag’s men feel that the England captain would have to agitate for a move if he wants to come to Old Trafford this summer.
Redknapp has now said that Kane has no choice but to do everything in his power to ensure that he leaves his boyhood club this summer.
The former Tottenham midfielder told Sky Sports: “It’s the facts, it feels Spurs are a shambles, if you are Harry Kane with one year to go this is the time to leave he has to push now.
“(Manchester) United they might get someone, he missed Man City a few years ago, right now he needs to push with one year on contract to go somewhere.
“Tottenham are like a social experiment of how far you can push your fans before they completely lose it.
“They need to do something, no one wants to lose Harry Kane, he has been incredible but deserves better.”

The big difference between now and 2021 is the fact that Kane only has a year left in his contract.
The striker is in a very strong position now as he could walk away on a free transfer next summer and sign for whoever he wants to.
Tottenham will be forced to make a decision if he decides against putting pen to paper on a new deal.
