Noel Whelan has suggested Harry Kane could look to move on from Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
Kane could leave
Kane has been an incredible player for Spurs, scoring well over 200 goals for the north London outfit (Transfermarkt). However, despite that record, he is yet to get his hands on a single piece of silverware.
Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan has suggested he may look for a new challenge at the end of the current campaign. He said:
“I think there’s a lot of lack of confidence in the team right now, they can’t seem to buy a win and they’ve got to find it very quickly if they’re going to get back to a team where they’re putting on decent performances.
“They’re still trying to get in the Champions League for next season, because that’s a risk, massively – do these players really want to be playing in the Europa League?
“Well, you ask him, as Harry Kane that. He stayed because he thought there was going to be a turnaround at Tottenham this season, he was going to be fighting for things.
“Now they’re not – are they going to win the League Cup? Well… The problem is you’ve got Harry Kane who stayed there because he wanted to win things and he felt that he would do this season.
“Now they’re on the cusp of losing him at the end of the season because how long can a good player stay at a club without winning something when they’ve got the best years ahead of them. That’s the biggest problem.”
Big few months
Given his quality, it is both a surprise and a shame that £108m-valued Kane (Transfermarkt) has been unable to win a trophy with Tottenham. He has too often been the only one to carry the leadership burden, though, with only Heung-min Son also showing true world-class quality – he’s got double figures in both goals and assists this season.
Will Kane be at Tottenham next season?
At the start of next season, Kane will be 28. The interest in his services remains – Manchester United and Manchester City, in particular, are said to be keen to acquire him (The Daily Mail). A trophy win at Tottenham may mean more to Kane than it would elsewhere, but the fact of the matter is, Spurs are going backwards rather than forwards. A loss in the League Cup final against City may finally convince the England captain that his future lies elsewhere.
