‘Doesn’t look happy’ – Ferdinand suggests Conte could end up selling Kane

Rio Ferdinand has suggested that Antonio Conte could decide to sell Harry Kane in the coming transfer windows if his performances fail to improve for Tottenham. 

Kane, 28, has struggled to muster up any meaningful form for Tottenham this season, and currently sits on a single Premier League goal after nine appearances. 

Much has been made of the England captain’s performances so far this campaign on the back of a turbulent summer in which Manchester City tried to prise him away from North London. 

Kane admitted that he wanted to leave Spurs which put Pep Guardiola’s side on red alert ahead of a potential move, but nothing materialised which has since left him with the tail between his legs. 

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand has commented on Kane’s situation this season, and he believes new Spurs boss Conte has a job on his hands to get him motivated and firing again 

The ex-England international also hinted that the Italian may even look to shift him on if he doesn’t end up getting a tune out of him. 

Ferdinand told Vibe with FIVE: “One of the hardest and biggest jobs is deciding what he is going to do with Harry Kane. Kane doesn’t look like he wants to be there still.

“Can they get a deal done with Man City? To get him out there, maybe in the summer or this next window. 

“Conte might have come in there and said, ‘Listen, I don’t want to have to deal with this. I can see the way Harry’s playing, he doesn’t look happy still’.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Kane’s form has been well-documented this season, but we need to give him and Conte a chance to see if things can be worked out and reversed. Selling Kane will be a last resort for Spurs, especially to another Premier League side, so we have to wait and see how this plays out first.
