With the Premier League, as well as other major European competitions, being suspended, there hasn’t been a whole lot for the football press to cover in recent weeks.
It is thus unsurprising that they have resorted to a steady stream of transfer speculation to keep people interested.
There has been a lot said and written of Harry Kane’s future since the striker admitted in an interview with Jamie Redknapp recently that he would consider leaving Spurs if the club was no longer moving in the right direction.
Much to Spurs fans’ consternation, several pundits have urged the striker to leave in search of silverware (Sky Sports).
Chris Sutton went a step further than most and suggested last month that the 26-year-old would be “stupid” not to leave Tottenham for Manchester City or Liverpool (BBC Sport).
The former Celtic striker has now weighed in on Kane’s future once again and suggested that the chances of him leaving Spurs this summer depend on how ruthless he is.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Sutton said: “If Harry Kane was available, which of Europe’s elite clubs would show an interest in signing him? It might be quicker to name the ones who wouldn’t, even if he would cost an arm and a leg.
“His numbers — 136 goals in 198 Premier League games for Tottenham — say it all. Manchester United have been heavily linked but surely Manchester City would come in for him, too. Sergio Aguero turns 32 in June and Kane would be a great addition to their line-up.
“The same goes for Barcelona or Real Madrid or anyone else who could afford the £200 million asking price! The bottom line is: if Kane wants to win trophies, then there are teams in better positions to achieve that with, both in the Premier League and abroad.
“Whether he leaves Tottenham this summer will come down to his willingness to be ruthless. Kane is under contract until 2024 so he would have to push to leave. He has already shown great loyalty to Spurs. But time is running out for him to win a title or lift a trophy.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Harry Kane is ambitious and he will certainly ask to leave if he doesn’t feel he can fulfil his objectives at Tottenham. However, he is not one to push for a move or threaten not to play if he doesn’t get his way, unlike some other Spurs players have done in the past. I also believe that winning one or two trophies with Tottenham will mean much more to Kane than winning five or six with a club like Real Madrid.
