'I'd rather have Harry Kane than Zlatan Ibrahimovic', says Redknapp

The former Liverpool midfielder thinks the England international could swap White Hart Lane for Old Trafford in the future as he compares the two strikers.

Jamie Redknapp would pick Harry Kane over Zlatan Ibrahimovic without question, but worryingly for Tottenham fans he can see the England man being the Swede’s replacement at Manchester United one day.

The former Liverpool midfielder believes Kane offers more as a central striker than Ibrahimovic, and woud pick the Tottenham man ahead of his opposite number at Old Trafford.

Kane’s Spurs came up short against United at Old Trafford on Sunday, but despite the 1-0 win for Ibrahimovic’s side, Kane would still get the nod ahead of him.

While that will be a welcome read for Spurs fans, what followed from Redkanpp certainly will not, as he says he could see Kane following on from Ibahimovic and playing up front for United in the future.

“I’d rather have him (Kane) in my team than Zlatan. It’s not even a question,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“He offers a lot more for his team. He is a player in a few years you could see wearing a number nine shirt for United, or any other top team.”

Kane has signed a new long-term contract at Spurs, but many still believe that one day he will make the move to United.
