Our Tottenham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Harry Kane will more than double his 100 goals for the club already.
Against Liverpool, Kane was given another chance to hit the 100 goal milestone and go second in the table of fastest to reach it behind Premier League legend, Alan Shearer. Coincidently it’s Shearer that many of our regulars in the bar are comparing Kane to, after his stunning start to life in the Premier League.
Shearer went from Southampton to Blackburn (winning the Premier League there in 1995) and finishing his career at his native club Newcastle United, where he became the clubs record scorer and a cult figure among the Toon Army.
Meanwhile, this England striker already is smashing records and scoring like he’s playing on the amateur level on Fifa in recent seasons. However, for Kane (rated at £108m by Transfermarkt) to truly fulfil his potential, many of the stalwarts in the pub feel Kane simply has to move on in order to push his career on.
Breaking records for your boyhood club is fine, and he could emulate Shearer in that way, but our landlord feels he’s never going to add a glut of trophies to his cabinet and be held in the same regard as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo while at Spurs.
So, with that in mind, here’s why Kane should leave Tottenham to reach his destiny.
