Speaking recently to Optus Sport, the former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester City midfielder turned pundit Steve McManaman claimed that Harry Kane ‘must be thinking’ about leaving Tottenham Hotspur – if the club to not win a trophy this season.
Making his Spurs debut as an 18-year-old back in 2011, Kane has gone on to feature 308 times for the north London side, scoring a remarkable 203 goals and providing 43 assists along the way.
However, despite winning two Premier League Golden Boots, the World Cup Golden Boot and being the top goalscorer in the European Qualifiers, the £108 million-rated 27-year-old is yet to win a team trophy with Tottenham, something which McManaman, speaking after the club’s recent 2-0 loss to Leicester City, suggested could make the England captain consider his future next summer.
Speaking to Optus Sport, he said: “Tottenham are now out of the Champions League places, that with the way they play football is the worrying aspect for the fans and Daniel Levy because it is nowhere near good enough.
“How can Tottenham keep him happy playing like this? If they do not win a trophy this year playing like this then Harry Kane must be thinking he has to ply his trade elsewhere because he’s not getting a sniff of the ball. No one is passing him the ball.”
Do you think Kane will leave Spurs if they do not win a trophy this season?
Transfer Tavern Take
Although it is indeed true that Spurs now sit in sixth place in the Premier League table, the fact remains that the top of the league is incredibly tight, as Tottenham are just two points behind second-placed Leicester and six behind league leaders Liverpool, meaning that Tottenham’s bid for the title is far from over as yet.
In addition to this, Mourinho’s side are still currently in the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup and the Europa League, presenting them with several opportunities at winning at a competition this season, so, if we were a fan of Tottenham, we would not be worrying about Kane’s departure just yet.
