‘If Kane does not leave soon, the situation gets trickier for him’: Jamie Carragher warns time is running out for big money move to Manchester United for Tottenham striker as when he turns 28 next year there will be ‘no resale value’
- Manchester United are considering huge offer for Tottenham striker Harry Kane
- Jamie Carragher believes 26-year-old Kane must make the move very soon
- Kane will turn 28 in 2021 and his value to sell on in future will diminish
The Old Trafford side were put on alert after Kane admitted he might leave North London in pursuit of trophies and may consider a £150million bid.
However, Carragher feels that, with Kane turning 28 next year, the club may be best seeking to invest in younger talent with higher sell-on values.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane may consider his future at the club in a bid to win trophies
‘Kane turns 27 in July,’ Carragher told The Telegraph. ‘We have no idea when the next transfer window will open or next season start. If Kane does not leave soon, the situation gets trickier for him.
‘When players hit 28, psychologically it makes a big difference to clubs. They see him as nearer 30, recognise there is no resale value and balk at high valuations.
‘Manchester United’s need for a top-class No.9 is urgent and they might see Kane as the ideal fit, but they will apply the same logic if the fee is upwards of £150 million.’
Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United may be better off investing in younger talent
Kane has been out for a significant period of time due to a hamstring injury, but the coronavirus shutdown means he is likely to be fit should any games be played this season.
However, the global pandemic may also have a knock-on effect on the transfer window, and any uncertainty from that could impact the viability of a summer move.
Carragher voiced his fears that Kane ‘reached the crossroads of his career at the worst time possible’.
He continued: ‘In other circumstances, the Tottenham striker’s comments suggesting he would consider a move in the near future would be reasonable.
‘Spurs fans may not like it, but I can understand why Kane is wondering whether his trophy ambitions will be served elsewhere.’
