Former Manchester City defender Danny Mills has warned Harry Kane that he needs to have another prolific season in front of goal in order to keep his value high.
The 28-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Manchester City, but instead took to Twitter ahead of the Europa Conference League second leg against Pacos de Ferreira to confirm that he would be remaining in North London this summer.
Mills believes that Kane needs to replicate his achievements to keep on the radar of City, or potentially risk the prospect of them focusing on other targets in upcoming transfer windows.
City boss Pep Guardiola claimed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was not prepared to enter negotiatons for the marksman, which resulted in his side not even being able to table an offer (The Sun).
Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland is also said to be on the radar of the Etihad outfit (Mirror).
Mills told Football Insider: “He’s got to perform this season,”
“He’s got to score another boatload of goals to keep his stock high.
“Obviously there’s a new manager at Tottenham and they’ve started well. Will that continue – who knows?
“We’ve seen it time and time again, players miss out on moves and then the following season they aren’t needed because someone else becomes available.
“Players, if they’re not careful, can miss the boat with moves away.”
Kane has just under three years left on his contract at Tottenham and the power still fully rests in the hands of Daniel Levy.
The striker should be looking to focus on the season ahead at Spurs and continuing his legacy in North London, rather than moving to City and becoming just another number in their squad, winning a few trophies and ruining the legendary status he currently has.
