Former Tottenham midfielder Paul Stewart has made the bold claim of suggesting that if Harry Kane leaves the club and they fail to spend to replace him, it could result in the North Londoners being involved in a relegation.

In May, Sky Sports reported the England captain has told Spurs of his intentions to leave the club this summer in an attempt to finally win some silverware.

The saga has continued to be the main centre of attention over the course of the summer, with reports claiming Manchester City bid £100 million for Kane last month.

City were said to be open to discussing a player-plus-money deal but Spurs rejected the offer. The players’ Man City were willing to include were understood to be Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte or Gabriel Jesus (The Guardian).

Fabrizio Romano reported this week that Tottenham are denying rumours that Kane is leaving and there is no fee agreed, the only bid being the £100 million one from City.

Kane leaving could potentially be a massive blow for Tottenham and Stewart has made a big claim about where that would leave the club.

He told FootballFanCast: “I’m just a bit concerned about what Spurs are going to do moving forward.

“If they sell Kane and don’t get any money for the transfer budget, I’d be concerned that they may be battling relegation next season and not fighting for the top four.”

The Kane saga is neverending and a new twist seems to appear in the news story every single day. It is not unreasonable to suggest that without Kane, or a suitable replacement, Spurs are genuinely in big trouble.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What a stupid thought that Kane leaving would put spurs in a relegation battle. Spurs before Kane were battling for top 4 and will be doing the same post Kane.

    Idiotic take to think Kane is the be all end all of spurs and an insult to the rest of the squad. This opinion is embarrassing.
