In a recent interview, Noel Whelan claimed that it is inevitable Harry Kane will leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
According to a report by Football Insider four days ago, Tottenham sources have revealed that Kane has told people close to him that he is “100 per cent thinking of moving on” from Spurs this summer, even if the club go on to win the Carabao Cup at the end of April – which would represent the first trophy of the 27-year-old’s career.
And, in a recent interview with the same website, Whelan stated that he is convinced the England international will leave north London at the end of the season, which would plunge the club further into chaos.
He said: “We know the inevitable is happening and that’s Harry Kane leaving. The players sense that as well, there seems to be a lot of negativity at Tottenham this season. The players don’t look like they’re enjoying it at the moment and it’s only going to get worse when Kane leaves.”
Do you think Kane will leave Spurs this summer?
Transfer Tavern Take
While Whelan appears rather certain that Kane will be moving on to pastures new at the end of the season, transfer expert David Ornstein recently stated that it seems “incredibly unlikely” the striker will be able to secure a move away from Tottenham this summer, due to the fact that Daniel Levy will be demanding at least £120 million to “even consider” parting with the 27-year-old.
It would appear as if, whether Kane likes it or not, he could well be staying at Spurs for the foreseeable future, but Whelan is just the latest in a long line of pundits and media outlets seemingly queuing up to claim the talisman will leave.
