Former Crystal Palace Chairman Claims Tottenham Superstar Might Find It Hard To Resist Old Trafford Move

Harry Kane

It looks like Harry Kane’s blistering scoring form has caught everyone’s attention. Even Crystal Palace’s former chairman Simon Jordan has thrown his hat by claiming that the England international striker would find it hard to resist a move to Manchester United next season. (talkSPORT)

Kane had a sensational September, blasting 13 goals for Tottenham. After his usual lull in August, it was a unbelievable performance in September and that drew accolades from all quarters for the forward.

He will lead the line for England against Slovenia at the Wembley on Thursday as the 24-year-old looks set to continue his goal rush in October.

The impressive form of Kane has made Jordan come out and claim that the striker is primed for a big money move next summer.

Jordan told talkSPORT,

“I’m not trying to be disrespectful to Tottenham. But if Manchester United come calling for Harry Kane, or Real Madrid – with an ageing forward line – come calling [it will be hard to resist].

“I think in a year’s time it will be very difficult for Harry Kane, at his peak, with Tottenham potentially not winning the Premier League and maybe struggling to even get into the Champions League, to resist the opportunity to move along.”

Jordan is surely living in the past because he is yet to come out of the transfer of Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick – both to United. In the recent past, Spurs have been forced to sell Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to Real Madrid but Jordan has conveniently forgotten the fact that those were on Tottenham’s terms – big-money moves funding the club’s transfers.

This is surely an outlandish suggestion because Jordan must be still living in the old era where Tottenham were prone to selling its stars, notably to United. Kane has been linked with a move to United on several occasions in the past but the England international has always maintained that he is happy to stay at Spurs and lead the charge for titles.

Another factor that Jordan has conveniently decided to miss is the presence of Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine manager has transformed the club and it is no exaggeration to say that Spurs have been the best side in England for the last couple of seasons.

Agreed that we were not able to take the final step and win a title in the last two seasons but there is no doubt that Spurs are playing the most attractive brand of football – not just in England but also in Europe.

Pochettino is on the verge of building a great team at the White Hart Lane and Kane, together with Dele Alli, is the cornerstone of that. I’m sure that Kane will stay at the club and prove Jordan wrong by leading the charge for trophies.
