Former Tottenham midfielder Micky Hazard is fairly confident that Harry Kane is going to stay put in North London for the time being.
Tottenham fans are used to there always being speculation about Kane’s future.
It appears that the England captain is linked with a move to Manchester United almost every transfer window and this summer has been no different (Daily Mail).
Reports have indicated that the Red Devils have always admired the Spurs striker and could make an approach for him if they fail to complete a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho Football.London.
However, the message coming out of Tottenham seems to be the clear – that their talismanic striker is not for sale.
Jose Mourinho has reportedly been given assurances of the futures of his key players (Daily Mail).
Hazard, who went on to make over 100 appearances for Spurs over two spells, backed Kane to stay and earn ‘God-like’ status at the club.
When asked about the striker’s future, Hazard told The Daily Star: “Whatever he does, he’s always going to be a legend. But imagine if he went on to fulfil his own dream and beat Jimmy Greaves’ record. He’d become a God-like figure.
“He’s stated before that if he’s not winning trophies he’ll have a rethink.
“But I’m very confident with Kane because he’s a top man who has been brought up very well. He’s loyal and honest.
“I’d expect him to be here for at least another two years. After that, what Spurs win will dictate his long-term plans.
“He could go to any club at world, but at the moment he’s still a Tottenham boy.
“One of the hardest decisions you’ll ever make is leaving a club where you’ve risen up through the youth system. It gets into your heart and soul.”
Spurs Web Opinion
As much as Kane loves Spurs and would want to stay and win trophies with us, there comes a point where he will be selfish and think about his future. I fear if we do not win anything next season and finish outside the top four again, he could push for a move as he will be 28 next summer and down to the last three years left on his contract.
Next summer could potentially be the last transfer window when we can demand upwards of £150 million for him if he decides he is not going to sign a new contract. Hopefully, that does not come to pass and we see an improvement from the side next season.
