Former Arsenal forward Ian Wright believes Harry Kane may regret his decision to stay at Tottenham and claims it could come back to haunt him.
Kane has been the subject of huge transfer speculation all summer, with Manchester City showing the biggest interest in the 28-year-old.
Spurs rejected a bid of £100 million from Pep Guardiola’s earlier this summer, but never managed to craft an offer worth tempting Daniel Levy to sell.
Kane, though, recently solidified his Spurs status for this summer at least, posting a statement on Twitter to confirm his dedication to helping Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
Gunners legend Wright believes that decision could backfire on Kane if he doesn’t claim that elusive piece of silverware that the forward, and the Spurs have craved for so long.
He also went on to specifically say that Kane may regret staying in north London if a Premier League trophy cannot be delivered.
Speaking on the Kelly and Wrighty Show, he said: “At the end of the day, what it will come down to. If he finishes his career, and he hasn’t got a Premier League medal and is around the top two or three goalscorers, he will regret that.
“Whatever he is doing now, I really hope he has thought it through. His brother gets a bit of stick, in respect with the way it has gone and the negotiations have gone. No clause or whatever.
“But I feel, whatever happens, if he hasn’t won the Premier League by the time he has finished then he will regret what he has done.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Spurs have started well this season and head into the first international break as league leaders, and the only side with a 100 per cent record.
Kane has played a role in half of that so far, and once he gets back up to full match sharpness after the pre-season debacle, the sky is the limit for this Spurs team if they can build on it.
