Redknapp reckons Kane will do this big thing if he leaves Spurs
By Bruce Grove -

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.”

Mason or Kane? Mason just hears Levy 1.0 in his head

Harry will score 30 or 40 a season minimum at City. The record will be his.

Leicester, Liverpool, Arsenal to win today….City draw with Toffees.

Not sure, most likely they beat Villa. There’s a tiny chance of the CL route for them so Leicester can get top 4 but I doubt that will be the case. Europa and a cup is ample for Leicester.

So Harry thinks Kane is the best centre forward in the world.I would suggest it is currently Lewandowski,who has just broken Muller’s goalscoring record which has stood for 49 years.

He has scored more league goals every season than Harry [except 2014-5]and they play two less games in Germany each season.His league total is 484 in 696 games.Kane’s is 238 in 400.That’s pretty damned impressive.

That match was funny. I had Bayern to win by 3….they got 9 titles in a row, first goal after 9minutes, last goal…the record breaker for Lew….90 mins….

They finished on 99 goals.

Coincidence of course.

Lewandowski did it at Dortmund when they were able to go toe-to-toe with Bayern, but mostly at Bayern itself. Before comparing, I would give Kane a few seasons at City, because Bayern and Spurs are really incomparable regarding their respective league positions.

Fair comment and I wasn’t knocking Harry,just disagreeing with Reknapp’s opinion.

No worries. I would just think that at Bayern, given their dominant style of play and amount of chances created, even other very good strikers could make a similar contribution (not so many goals perhaps as Lewa), while I can’t imagine any player having the same impact as Kane on Spurs.

Probably more telling to look at goals to games ratio – a reason why Jimmy Greaves’ exploits, especially for England, are so under appreciated

I was referring to league stats only,but even then Lew is better.Plus he has been doing it well inoto his 30s.I wouldn’t deny Harry could do that at City. as he is 4 years younger.
