Ferdinand: Mourinho wouldn't let Spurs sell Kane to Manchester United

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand believes Jose Mourinho would do anything to prevent striker Harry Kane from joining the club.

Kane is being linked with a move out of Spurs in the summer with United believed to be one of the teams interested in his services but according to Ferdinand Spurs wouldn’t let him go to United.

"Would I take Harry Kane now? Of course, you would. If he's fit and he's raring to go, you take Harry Kane at Man United, 100 percent.

"Top player, you're guaranteeing goals, in the Premier League, you're guaranteeing goals. This geezer scores goals but I don't see Tottenham letting Harry Kane go. And with Mourinho there, I don't see Mourinho letting him go to Man United,” Ferdinand said on Instagram Live.

Spurs would need around £150million for their talisman an amount that would scare away any potential suitors with news that United might be moving for Jadon Sancho too in the summer.

Asked about the teenager who turned 20 on Wednesday, Ferdinand said: "I would take Sancho all day, to Man United. Whether we'll get him, though (who knows?).

"Great player, great potential, English, he's brilliant. I would take Sancho now."

Apart from the duo, United have been linked with a move for Birmingham City's highly sought-after teenager midfielder Jude Bellingham and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.
