Harry Kane: Darren Bent urges Manchester United to sign Tottenham star

Darren Bent has urged Manchester United to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham because he feels United are a ‘perfect’ club for him.

Man United are obviously going to search for a new striker in the summer, with the winter transfer window likely going to be a quiet one for the Red Devils, although Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to push for an exit in January.

Playing in the Champions League this season remains a dream for Ronaldo and there are reports claiming that the likes of Napoli and Chelsea are showing interest to seal his signature in January.

The Portuguese star may likely see out the remainder of the season with Manchester United but his chances of leaving the club at the end of the season are high, hence forcing the Reds into searching for his replacement in the summer.

Ten Hag’s side will be in need of a striker ahead of next season, with Marcus Rashford struggling as a no.9 and Anthony Martial battling to stay fit, and Bent has advised Man United to lure Kane from Tottenham, who has been widely touted as one of the best strikers in Europe, having scored 259 goals in 403 matches for Spurs.

Darren Bent believes United are a perfect club for the England international because a move to Manchester City is unlikely due to the presence of Erling Haaland.

‘Where does he [Harry Kane] go? That City [opportunity has] gone,’ former Tottenham striker Bent told talkSPORT.

‘[Manchester] United would be perfect, they need a centre-forward. So that makes sense.’

Bent also warned that the 29-year-old, who will run out of contract in 2024, could cost them at least £100million for his transfer.

‘It was pretty clear last season that he wanted to leave,’ Bent added. ‘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.

‘I still think [he would cost] around £100m. 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.’
