Robbie Fowler believes that Harry Kane will not sign a new contract at Tottenham and will leave his boyhood club during the summer transfer window.
Kane’s current deal at Spurs has 18 months left to run (Transfermarkt) and the striker’s future has understandably been the subject of plenty of speculation over recent months.
Reports over the last few weeks have indicated that Bayern Munich (Fussball Nachrichten) and Real Madrid (Todofichajes) are both expected to try their luck for the England captain at the end of the season.
Some pundits have also suggested recently that Manchester United could look to snap up Kane in order to push on to the next level and compete with the likes of Manchester City (Daily Star).
Meanwhile, CBS Sports journalist Ben Jones revealed a couple of weeks ago that Spurs remain hopeful of tying the striker down to a new contract by potentially offering him a say in their footballing decisions going forward (The Football Terrace).
However, Fowler believes that the Lilywhites will not be able to convince their talisman to stay.
The Liverpool legend told the Sunday Mirror on 15/1, page 71: “As I got older as a player, the more I became aware there’s no loyalty in football, just ruthless financial decisions.
“Which is why I expect Harry Kane to leave Spurs in the summer. The fact is that all this talk of loyalty is a two-way street – it needs to work both ways. I expect he won’t blink if a decent offer comes in this summer.”

If Tottenham finish outside the top four this season, that will mean that Conte does not have a future at the club and it remains to be seen if Kane will be patient enough for another ‘project’ at this stage of his career.
The North London club’s last throw of the dice to hang on to Kane might be rehiring Mauricio Pochettino. However, I do not know how the Argentine will work together with Fabio Paratici as the two do not seem to share a similar footballing philosophy.
