Tottenham Hotspur have been told by former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie that superstar Harry Kane ‘might leave’ in January.
The Lowdown: Bayern linger…
Recent reports have suggested that Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich hold a serious interest in signing the Premier League forward with Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg claiming he could become a ‘hot topic’.
The reporter has also claimed that Kane himself can ‘really imagine’ making a switch to The Allianz Arena in his personal quest for silverware, coming as his contract is due to expire in 2024.
Bayern have also apparently told the 29-year-old not to sign an extension as they weigh a 2023 move.
The Latest: McAvennie sends Kane warning…
Speaking to Football Insider, pundit and ex-Hammers frontman McAvennie believes he could leave north London as soon as the winter window amid his links to Bayern.
“I think he might leave in January. I watched Bayern Munich on Tuesday night and I thought wow they need a striker. They definitely need a striker. I think he’ll go, I think it would be a good fit for him.
“We know he loves Tottenham but a player like Harry Kane can’t go through his career and not win anything, even if it’s just the one. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bayern Munich try and get him in January.“
The Verdict: Worry for Conte?
While Bayern may hold an interest, it’s still hard to imagine Kane leaving in mid-season.
His love for Spurs is an obvious indication he will give his all until the end of 2022/2023 at least, especially with trophy-laden boss Antonio Conte at the helm.
Of course, beyond that, his potential exit will be a worry for Spurs supporters given just how crucial he is going forward.
Called a ‘creative genius‘ by members of the press for his role beyond actually scoring goals, Kane picked up the Playmaker of the Year award at the end of 2020/2021 – proving he brings far more to the table than his clinical finishing.
Losing the England international would be a major blow, but it’s far more likely to be a worry for next summer.
