This article forms part of our Profit Players feature series, which is where Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at how well a player has fared since being signed or sold, using statistical figures and statements from pundits to prove how good of a deal the club managed to achieve.
Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is weighing up his future at the club, according to Defensa Central. Kane’s future has been one of the many talking points of what has been a poor season so far from the Lilywhites, with the club most recently getting battered 7-2 at home to Bayern Munich.
According to the Spanish publication, the England international has imagined playing for another club, particularly after the club’s loss to Liverpool in the Champions League final.
Real Madrid are said to be keen on signing the player, whose value has skyrocketed during the last few years at the club.
Kane was originally an academy product from the Spurs youth team, working his way up the various age groups. He made his debut for Spurs in August 2011, winning and missing a penalty against Hearts in the Europa League (via The Guardian).
Kane didn’t become a first-team regular until towards the back end of the 2013/2014 season, where he scored in three consecutive Premier League appearances (via TransferMarkt). As of August 2014, the 26-year-old’s value was just £2.7m, and it’s fair to say both his performances and value have since soared over the last five years.
In the last five years, the Englishman has scored 171 goals in 262 Spurs appearances, with his value reaching a peak of £135m. His goals have contributed to Spurs finishing second in the Premier League in 2017 and reaching their first-ever Champions League final last season. More impressively, Kane has scored 20+ goals in four consecutive top flight seasons, further backing up his high value by TransferMarkt.
If Kane leaves the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it’s fair to say that he has had a storming career at the club. Any potential transfer fee fetched should be north of £100m (in fact the Telegraph even mooted a £250m fee) given his goalscoring record with the club, meaning Daniel Levy could really demand huge money.
Will this be Mauricio Pochettino's last season at Tottenham?
