Dean Windass has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that if Harry Kane leaves Tottenham this summer, Heung-Min Son might start to consider his future at the club.
The duo, who’ve enjoyed an incredible campaign up alongside each other for Jose Mourinho’s team, have been linked with respective moves away from north London this season, with Spurs currently facing the prospect of no Champions League football once again.
Will Kane leave Tottenham this summer?
Both are tied down to long-term contracts, but Son, who’s been in talks over extending his deal for some time, has emerged as a transfer target for Bayern Munich, whilst there’s no secret about Manchester City’s ongoing interest in Kane.
It’s going to take a monumental effort to prize either player away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer, but Windass thinks that Kane’s potential departure could start a domino effect in the Spurs squad – with Son following the England captain through the exit door.
He told the Transfer Tavern:
“Money talks. I’ve heard many chairmans and managers over the years say ‘he’s not leaving’ and then three weeks later he’s gone. Players have got the power to put in a transfer request.
“If Harry Kane goes to Man City, if you were Son what would you be thinking? You lose your top striker, then where are you going to go from there?
“If Tottenham reach the Champions League this year that might entice Harry to stay, but I think if Harry does leave then he [Son] might be sat at home thinking, ‘well’. And then all of a sudden the manager and owners have got a problem, if you lose them two players – it’s like a pack of cards.”
