Harry Redknapp has tipped Harry Kane to break Alan Shearer’s Premier League goal-scoring record if he leaves Spurs for another team.
Kane remains one of the best strikers to play in the Premier League and he has already scored 165 league goals for Tottenham.
He is still about a hundred behind Shearer’s total of 260, but he is 27 and still has a long time to get more goals against his name.
The striker has been tipped to join Manchester United or City because they are the two teams who can afford him.
They have also been the best two sides in the Premier League this season.
City has been made the favourites as they look to replace Sergio Aguero and Redknapp reckons that Kane will score even more goals if Spurs granted him his wish to change teams in the next transfer window.
The former Spurs boss wrote in his column on Sun Sports: “Harry Kane wants a move because he’s desperate to play for a trophy-winning team.
“Well, if he gets his wish, I think he’ll have a massive individual record to his name when he retires, too — as the Premier League’s all-time top scorer.
“Alan Shearer is top of the list with 260 and Harry is still the best part of a hundred behind him right now.
“But if he turns up in Manchester or at Chelsea, it really wouldn’t surprise me if he ended up with even more.
“He’s 27, could stay at the top for another five years and, if that is the case, you’d have to fancy him to be the top man by the time he finished.
“It’s quite ironic, really, because I see Shearer’s move to Blackburn 30 years ago as very similar to Kane now.
“When Jack Walker broke the British transfer record to take him to Ewood Park in 1992, it was for one reason — he knew Shearer could win the title for Rovers.
“However daft it seems now, £3.6million was a huge amount at the time, but it was a signing which came with as big a guarantee as you can get.
“Shearer was no risk. Jack knew he was buying someone who’d score goals, had a great attitude and would hit the ground running.
“It will be the same for whoever signs Kane, too. You know exactly what you’re getting — which in this case is the best centre-forward in the world.”
