Alan Hutton has claimed that Harry Kane will not be pleased to hear Fabio Paratici’s recent comments about a rebuild as the Tottenham striker will be desperate to start winning silverware immediately. 

Manchester City fell short in their attempt to reach an agreement with Daniel Levy for Kane over the summer despite the striker allegedly pushing hard for the transfer.

The England captain has looked a shadow of his former self so far this season, with some pundits putting his sub-par performances down to being mentally affected by the failed transfer.

According to reports, Pep Guardiola’s men are unlikely to reignite their interest in Kane in the future after failing to get a deal over the line during the summer.

Paratici revealed this week that Spurs are planning for their rebuild with Kane in the squad, insisting that the striker ‘loves’ the club.

However, Hutton believes that the England captain will not have the patience to be a part of another project.

Asked if he thought the striker would be happy with Paratici’s comments, the former Spurs right-back told Football Insider: “No, not really.

“I mean he wants to win trophies, he wants to be playing in team is challenging for everything. You can understand why.

“He’s one of the best strikers in the world. To say that you’re going to go through a rebuild and he’s 28 now, he is looking for success now.

“It will obviously be disappointing for him. They’re stuck in a tough place at the moment. They’ve got a striker there desperate to win. They’re probably not where they should be in terms of league position.

“In terms of actually challenging, I think they’re still a long way off it. They need to get him firing. If he’s going to stay there now, he needs to really get going.

“Whether that is players coming in and adding to the squad, we’ll have to wait and see. It’s a sticky place right now for Tottenham and Harry Kane.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

While Kane obviously wanted to leave in the summer, I do not believe his sub-par performances this season are a result of a lack of motivation.

The 28-year-old is as professional as they come and I am convinced that he is ready to give 100 per cent for Spurs. I believe, however, that he is short of confidence at the moment.
