Ex-Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Jamie O’Hara, has now claimed that the only club he can see coming in and taking Harry Kane from Spurs is Manchester City.
O’Hara does not believe that Manchester United are well suited to give Kane the promise of trophies at this moment in time, while he cannot see Spain as an exit choice due to the perceived belief that Harry has his eye on Alan Shearer’s goalscoring record.
Kane already has nine goals and one assist in 12 games for Tottenham this season (Transfer Markt), as well as six goals and four assists for England (Transfer Markt). That makes for an impressive 15 goals and five assists in 16 games for Kane this season.
As a result, ex-United star Roy Keane said on Sky Sports recently that his old club should simply solve their striker issues by bringing in Kane from Spurs.
Despite this, O’Hara can only see Man City as a potential option, although he admits that Spurs can’t let their man leave.
O’Hara said (TalkSPORT): “If you are going to go for £200million, are you going to go to Man United?
“No disrespect to them, even though they’ve had their great history, Tottenham are probably a better-suited squad to where they are going.
“So if he is are going to leave Tottenham, surely he is going to go where he can win trophies. And, for me, that is not going to be at Man United.
“I don’t think he’ll go to Spain. I think he wants the [Alan] Shearer record, the Premier League all-time scoring record.
“I think he’s going for it and I think he’s got a good chance.”
Asked whether Kane could break Shearer’s record at Spurs, he said: “No.
“I think if he is going to go it’s going to be Man City; it’s only Man City, for me, who can probably get him.
“Aguero is coming to the end and Jesus is a different type of player, so if they are to get somebody it would be Harry Kane.
“But does he leave Tottenham? And can they let him go? I don’t think they can.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I can’t see Man City shelling out £200 million for Harry Kane and I can’t see Tottenham selling him for any price. I don’t think Kane wants to leave and I don’t think Spurs want him to. The only scenario I see is Harry playing out his career in North London. As for trophies and records, what will be will be.
