Former Hull City defender Alex Bruce has claimed that Harry Kane’s recent comments, which put his Tottenham future in question were meant as a warning to chairman Daniel Levy to show more ambition in the transfer market.
Reports over the last few weeks have suggested that the Tottenham striker is a wanted man across Europe with Manchester United (Evening Standard), Juventus (Tuttosport) and Real Madrid (Diario Madridista) all said to be keen on his signature.
Some Spurs fans felt the England captain’s words were a direct message to Levy and urged the chairman to spend big in the transfer market.
Bruce agrees with that assessment and warned Levy that Kane will be on his way out of Tottenham soon if he fails to prove to him that the club has ambition.
When asked if the striker’s comments were a warning to the Tottenham chairman, Bruce told Football Insider: “100 per cent. Harry Kane’s getting to the age now where he needs to win trophies and play for a team that wins trophies.
“The only way they’re going to do that is by giving Mourinho the funds so he can improve the team and they can get back to competing with the top four and obviously in the Champions League.
“If Harry Kane doesn’t see them kind of things put in place, he’d be a massive target for any top four team in any league in the world, he’s such a great player in my opinion. Someone Tottenham need to build the team around.
“It’s a little bit of drumming up interest and sending a warning sign out to Tottenham.”
Spurs Web Opinion
It is clear that Kane is too good to stick around at Spurs for the rest of his career if we aren’t going to compete for the biggest trophies. However, people are reading far too much into his latest comments. He said in that interview what he has always said – that he will be happy to stay as long as the team is moving in the right direction.
