- The Red Devils are believed to be keen on the Tottenham goalscorer.
- He's a top player and would suit United 100 per cent, insists the Red Devils legend.
- The thing is Jose Mourinho is not going to sell the 26-year-old, according to Ferdinand.
Even though Jose Mourinho is no longer at the helm of Man United and the Red Devils haven't 'parked the bus' for a while now, the Special One could still prevent his former club from improving their goalscoring record.
That's according to Rio Ferdinand, who belives the Portuguese is the major stumbling block in United's pursuit of Harry Kane.
The Red Devils are believed to be keen on the Tottenham hitman but they won't sell their prized asset as long as Mourinho is in charge, according to the United legend.
"Would I take Harry Kane now? Of course, you would,” he said on Instagram Live. "If he's fit and he's raring to go, you take Harry Kane at Man Utd, 100 per cent.
"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 Utd."
Some reports have also suggested United won't enter the race for Kane unless the England international makes his desire to move to Old Trafford 'abundantly clear'.
The 26-year-old debuted for Spurs in 2011 and has scored 181 goals in 278 matches for the club since then. He's tied with the North London club until 2024. What makes his move to United even more unrealistic is Tottenham's sky-high asking price of £150m.
