Former Hull City defender, Alex Bruce, has questioned whether Harry Kane will have the patience to stick it out until at Tottenham until they reach the level of Man City and Liverpool.
Kane has been heavily linked with a move away from Spurs of late and the speculation is showing no signs of dissipating.
However, reports have suggested that Tottenham are determined to hang on to the 26-year-old (talkSPORT) this summer, with Football.London even claiming that Jose Mourinho will try to convince the striker to commit his long-term future to the club.
Despite this, Bruce sees no reason as to why Kane would sign a new long-term deal given the striker’s age and the fact that he is yet to win any trophies in his career.
The former Hull defender suggested that it would take some time for the Lilywhites to challenge for major honours and urged the Spurs striker to look elsewhere to win silverware.
The pundit told Football Insider: “If I was Harry I’d be looking at it and thinking: ‘Where am I going to win trophies?’ and that’s the biggest question he’s going to have to face.
“He’s not getting any younger, he wants to go and win a couple of things. Tottenham have got the infrastructure in place, with a great manager, great stadium, based in London, a great history. They just need to build a team now to go and compete with the elite clubs in Europe and obviously the likes of Liverpool and Man City.
“That will take time to get to that level. Has Harry Kane got that time to wait? We’ll have to wait and see what happens but if I was Harry, I’d be asking myself where am I going to win trophies because I’m not getting any younger.
“A player like Harry Kane’s ability, it would be a shame if he went through his career without really winning anything.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I am sure Jose Mourinho will have already had a conversation with Kane regarding his future and would have tried to convince the striker that he can fulfil his ambitions at Spurs. If we don’t compete for major honours next season and end the season empty-handed , I can see Kane asking to leave next summer.
