Teddy Sheringham has risked upsetting Tottenham Hotspur fans by backing one of his other former clubs, Manchester United, to sign Harry Kane this summer.

The England captain has long been linked with a move away from Spurs, with the Red Devils one of the few clubs who might be able to afford the prolific striker.

Reports have suggested that Manchester United are ready to make a big-money move for Kane this summer and Sheringham thinks that is exactly what they should be doing.

Whether they will be able to get a deal done or not is another question, but Sheringham feels Kane is the best striker on the planet and should be bought if it is a possibility.

‘You’re talking about Harry Kane. He is the top number nine in the world for me,’ the former England forward told bookmakers.co.uk.

‘People talk about Haaland who is a very good youngster coming through with unbelievable promise, but Harry Kane is the best number nine in the world.

‘From a Manchester United point of view, if you can get him, then go get him. Tottenham supporters won’t want to hear that, but they’ve heard it for the last three years – Harry Kane is a big-money player, he’s the best and everybody wants him.’

Reports suggest that Man Utd believe they can get Kane for a fee of around £90m this summer and that the forward would be interested in the mood.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants closer to £150m for the 27-year-old, but that might prove to be an unrealistic valuation, especially after the pandemic and the impact it has had on the finances of the sport.
