Tony Cascarino has confidently predicted that there is no chance of Harry Kane staying at Tottenham and insisted that the striker is bigger than the club.
The speculation about Kane’s future had already been running rife over the past few months but since the striker’s candid interview with Gary Neville aired last week, the subject has completely dominated the back pages.
Some seem to think on the back of the interview that it is a foregone conclusion that the striker is on his way out of Tottenham.
However, some reports continue to indicate that Daniel Levy’s position has not changed and the Spurs chairman maintains that he will not sell the 27-year-old to a domestic rival.
Cascarino certainly belongs in the former camp, ruling out any possibility of the England captain remaining at Tottenham.
When asked whether Kane could stay at Spurs, the former Chelsea man told talkSPORT: “I don’t think there’s any chance he’ll be at Tottenham next year. The only man who can stop it is Daniel Levy.”
Cascarino insisted that Kane has now become bigger than Tottenham as he is currently the most in-demand player on the market.
He added: “We always say no player is bigger than the club, that’s absolute nonsense.
“Now and again, for a period of time, they are. At this moment in time, Kane is bigger than the club. He’s the whole story.
“He’s the guy they’ve been reliant on, he’s their biggest demand in the transfer market.
“Lionel Messi has been that at Barcelona for a number of years. Not in the long term or the history of the football club, but for a period of time, Messi has been more important than Barcelona.
“It happened to Ronaldo at Real Madrid. It happened to Steven Gerrard at Liverpool. He was equally as big as Liverpool and the most important thing at the club.”
Spurs Web Opinion
No one apart from Levy can say with any certainty whether or not Kane will still be at Spurs next season. I believe he is likely to stay for one more season and leave in 12 months as I cannot see any club meeting Levy’s valuation of the striker this summer.
