Matt Le Tissier has claimed that winning silverware at a club like Manchester City would not be as special to Harry Kane as winning a trophy with Tottenham.
The speculation surrounding Kane’s future shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, with the Tottenham star said to be on the radars of several of Europe’s big hitters this summer.
However, it will not be an easy task for any club to steal Kane away from Spurs this summer, with the striker still having three years left on his contract and reports indicating that Daniel Levy could demand a whopping £175 for the 27-year-old.
Several pundits have urged the Tottenham star to leave the club this summer if he harbours ambitions of competing for the biggest trophies in the game.
However, Le Tissier, who spent the entirety of his career at Southampton, suggested that Kane’s motivations might not just be about winning as many trophies as he can.
When asked about Kane’s future, the Saints legend told talkSPORT: “What you have to put into perspective is what’s in the player’s mind, what’s in Harry Kane’s head.
“Does he really love his football club that much that he doesn’t really want to move on and he wants to try to stay and try to win trophies at that football club?
“It all depends on where he sits in his career and what he wants out of his career. I was in a position where I was at a football club I loved, I loved the area I lived in.
“I just felt it was the best decision for me in my life to keep me the happiest I could be.
“For me, my priorities were always about being happy in life and not necessarily earning more money or winning more trophies.
“It wasn’t really something that was at the top of my list of priorities. I just wanted to be happy, I wanted to play the football the way I wanted to play football.
“If he was to go to a Manchester City or a Barcelona and win a trophy, it wouldn’t be as special to him as if he stayed at Spurs and helped them win a trophy.”
Spurs Web Opinion
While none of us knows what is in Kane’s mind, a player does not get to the level he has got to if he is not driven by the desire to be the best in the world. So, I suspect that if Kane did have his way, he would prefer to move on to a club like Manchester City in the summer.
However, I am optimistic about our chances of hanging on to him as I simply do not see any club paying what Levy is likely to demand for the striker this summer.
