Former Tottenham Hotspur player Darren Bent has backed Manchester United to sign striker Harry Kane.
Bent feels the move "makes sense" for both Man United and Kane, adding that the Red Devils need a centre-forward like the England international.
Kane, who has scored 259 goals across 403 games for Tottenham, was widely linked with a move to Manchester City before Spurs blocked the move and Pep Guardiola’s side instead opted to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
His current contract with Tottenham will expire in 2024, but Bent feels Man United would be perfect for him.
Where does he go? "That city [opportunity has] gone,” Bent told talkSPORT.
“[Manchester] United would be perfect. They need a centre-forward." So that makes sense.
“It was pretty clear last season that he wanted to leave,” Bent continued. “Man City were the ones pressing the issue." Clearly, they never came up with enough money, and it’s believed they bid £140 million but didn’t get him.
“They clearly believed that he was worth it, but the Spurs thought he was worth more." Spurs are a club where if you don’t hit the price they want, you are not going anywhere.
I still think [he would cost] around £100m. There is 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. "
