Tony Cascarino has predicted that Harry Kane could leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season as the striker is too ambitious to stay at the North London club when they are not competing for major honours.
Not a season goes by where Kane’s future is not subject to speculation, with the England captain often being linked with a move to the biggest clubs in world football.
It has also been suggested that Spurs are set to offer a new contract to Kane and that the striker is open to prolonging his stay at the club.
However, Cascarino insisted that the Tottenham star should leave at the end of the season if he harbours any hope of being considered the best player in the world and winning the biggest honours in the game.
The pundit told Hawksbee and Jacobs on talkSPORT: “He’s 28 in July and Beckham went to Real Madrid at 28 – I think he’s going to look at his team.
“What has he won? The answer is nothing. He’s won lots of accolades for his individual achievements but he was a loser in the League Cup final and Champions League final.
“The bottom line for Harry is does he want to be Tottenham’s greatest player ever? Is that his main goal? I don’t think so. I think he’s far more ambitious than that.
“That comes with being a Champions League player every season, fighting for titles. As a driven man you imagine he is, that’s something he’d like to achieve. He’s that good.
“You’ve got Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo coming to the end of their careers. Lewandowski is four years older than Harry, he’s got the chance to be the best player in the world.
“That might seem a way off at the moment, as it stands as a centre forward and his goal returns, but he’s got every chance.
“Harry’s got a major decision. Does he think he’s going to win things for Spurs? I don’t think they are going to win things.
“Don’t think winning the League Cup is going to keep Harry Kane. I think it’s challenging for the biggest honours in the world.
“He’s a Golden Boot winner at the World Cup, he’s up there at the top table and I think he wants to stay there and be part of it for five or six years.
“Does he see that at Tottenham? I would say, at a guess, probably not.”

There is no doubting Kane’s ambition and I do believe that he could leave at the end of the season if we do not show any signs of progress. However, there is also every reason to believe that he genuinely loves Spurs and that he is desperate to guide the club to a league title before he hangs up his boots.
