Former Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel has revealed that he can see Harry Kane finishing his career in Major League Soccer.

Kane is still very much in the prime of his career and is continuing to chase down several records including Tottenham’s and the Premier League’s all-time goal records, which are currently held by Jimmy Greaves and Alan Shearer respectively.

The 29-year-old’s current deal in North London ends in 2024, and Alasdair Gold (Football.London) has predicted recently that it will surely not be long before the Spurs hierarchy begins negotiations with the striker over a new contract.

There have also been suggestions recently that Bayern Munich are keen on snapping up the England captain next summer, with 90 min claiming this week that Tottenham are becoming ‘increasingly concerned’ about the Bundesliga giants’ interest in their talisman.

While it remains to be seen what Kane’s immediate future holds, Friedel has said that he can see the Spurs star finishing his career in the MLS, much like Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

The former Spurs number one told Betway: “I am not stirring anything up. I have never spoken to him about it.

“But, I do know he does love American sports. Could I see him make the move over here like Gerrard, Lampard and Beckham at some point? Yeah, I could.

“And I think with the way Daniel Levy does his business if he ever does leave Tottenham, going somewhere where he is not going to compete with Tottenham is probably a destination that Daniel Levy would like him to go to. If he ever leaves.

“So yes, I could see him over here.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I can certainly see Kane playing out the final years of his career in the United States but that is at least five or six years away. Given that the striker is not reliant on his pace and athleticism, I see him continuing to play at the very top level until his late thirties.
