The article starts by saying that even though the Tottenham hierarchy are adamant their star striker is going nowhere and that despite our hardline stance, Allardyce reckons that a move could eventually happen.
The article goes on to say Allardyce,who was chatting with paddypower.com, said: “Harry Kane is clearly happy at Tottenham, at the moment. I think he’ll be looking at staying for the next two to three seasons but, after that, who knows? Maybe it’ll be time to move on.
Allardyce believes Kane could easily attract interest from the big guns – Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich.
He said:“Those three clubs are the only three that would tempt Harry to leave Tottenham, especially if he wins something there.
“I don’t think Spurs would ever want to sell Harry Kane to a Premier League club. But they sold Gareth Bale in the end – as much as they want to hold on to him, money does talk.”
Allardyce cites the Neymar to PSG deal saying Spurs might find it hard to refuse a deal along similar lines, that there’s always an offer that “someone can’t refuse”, and he believes that’ll be the case with Harry eventually.
“There are stories that Real Madrid want to offer £200million for Kane. Can Tottenham reject that kind of money? I don’t know.” said Allardyce
The article continues, saying that despite Harry having a deal up to 2022 ,and repeatedly saying he is happy at Tottenham, Allardyce is mindful that could change if he doesn’t start picking up trophies.
“He’s said that he wants to stay at Spurs until the end of the career, so presumably he thinks they can achieve what he wants to in the game.
“He’s obviously thinking they’re very close to achieving honours – they’re in the Champions League, they’re in their new stadium, he’s seeing the club grow. He’s enjoying it there at the moment.
So what do we reckon to the former Crystal Palace manager’s words about Harry. There is always going to be speculation especially when players are in the form that Harry is in but when it comes from managers or ex managers it does sow the seed of doubt. Let us have your thoughts.
