Legendary Newcastle United striker, Alan Shearer, has warned Tottenham that Harry Kane will be on his way out of North London next summer if the team shows no signs of progression.
Kane has already been linked with a move away from Tottenham this year, with Manchester United (Evening Standard), Juventus (Tuttosport), and Real Madrid (Diario Madridista) all said to be keen on signing him.
The Daily Star insists that Spurs remain confident of holding onto the England captain as they feel no club can meet their valuation of the striker.
Shearer believes, however, that the 26-year-old must now be thinking about winning silverware.
Speaking to the BBC’S Match of the Day: Top 10 podcast, he said: My guess is, if he doesn’t win anything in the next 12 months then he has to leave.
“He’ll do another year, I think, and if nothing comes in terms of trophies, then he’ll be off.”
The former Newcastle man also insisted that it will be hard for the Spurs star to break his all-time Premier League record goal tally which stands at 260 goals.
When asked if Kane can beat it, Shearer said: “It’s going to be hard for him. He’s on 136 and there’s a lot of ‘ifs’ being asked; if he stays fit or if he stays in the Premier League. It’s going to be tough, but it’s going to go one day.”
Spurs Web Opinion
As much as Kane loves Spurs, he is one of the best strikers in the world if not the best. So, he needs to be thinking about winning silverware. While winning one trophy with Tottenham will no doubt mean more to Kane than winning four or five with a club like Real Madrid, he is likely to be off next summer if we show no signs of moving forward.
