Danny Mills claims Tottenham talisman Harry Kane needs to quit Spurs to chase his childhood dreams.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Manchester City defender believes Kane will have to leave his boyhood club if he wants to win the Premier League and the Champions League.
Earlier this week, Harry Redknapp suggested he is unsure if the England international will stay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium if the Lilywhites struggle to claim silverware in the next couple of seasons.
Likewise, club legend Teddy Sheringham has tipped his compatriot to leave North London within the next two years.
Sheringham found himself in a similar position to the Englishman towards the end of the last century, before moving to Manchester United, where he famously won three Premier League titles, the Champions League and FA Cup.
Kane’s performances over the years have caught the eye of a number of European clubs, including Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils, and he has recently reiterated he wants to win trophies, with The Telegraph reporting he will reconsider his future in the summer.
Mills told Football Insider: “that was always the song about Teddy Sherringham and he won quite a lot at Manchester United.
“It depends on what Kane wants. He can stay at Tottenham all his career and maybe win an FA Cup. Or, he can go somewhere else and win the Champions League and the league. Seriously challenge for two or three seasons.
“Take out Ronaldo and Messi, most players have a peak for six years and he is four years into that. He is 26. In a few year’s time, he is going to be 30 and he has already had a number of injuries.”
He concluded “he will have to think about moving on if he wants the big honours.”
It is hard to argue with Mills here, as Jose Mourinho’s side are set to finish another season without a trophy.
As it stands, his efforts are seemingly in vain, as Mourinho’s men are currently eighth in the table, and face a monumental task to close the gap on the top four in the weeks ahead.
It is fair to say a world-class striker should boast a stacked trophy cabinet, but Spurs have been unable to capitalise on his heroics at the time of writing.
In fact, Kane has still not won a single trophy with the club he joined as a youngster, although Mauricio Pochettino’s men came close to achieving Champions League glory last year.
While Daniel Levy has moved to discourage any potential suitors with an eye-watering £200m price tag for the academy graduate, if this barren run continues, it is difficult to imagine Kane will be able to resist the temptations of moving to the likes of La Liga giants Barcelona.
