Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has become the latest pundit to react to Kane’s revelation and admitted that he was surprised to see the striker change his tune.
During an Instagram Live interview, the BT Sport pundit said (as relayed by The Mirror): “We’ve seen the news. When he’s been pressed in the past about his loyalty to Spurs, he’s always been a bit coy, but this isolation, I don’t know what it’s done to him but he’s dropped a couple of bombs.
“If you’ve got aspirations to be successful, and you can go out there and court big clubs and go to successful places where you can win things, you’ve got to be searching for that. He can’t be sitting there and be totally happy at Spurs.”
There has been plenty of speculation surrounding the 26-year-old’s future in recent weeks with Manchester United Evening Standard), Juventus (Tuttosport) and Real Madrid (Diario Madridista) all said to be interested in signing him.
However, Football Insider claims that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has no plans on cashing in on the striker.
Ferdinand insisted that the England captain will be devastated if he ends up trophyless for the rest of his career with Spurs.
The former United defender added: “Yes he’ll have made loads of money but he’ll do that anywhere but he won’t have nothing to remember in terms of a great day picking up a trophy here and there.
“Do you think he’ll be satisfied? I’ll tell you now: NO. He won’t be, he’ll be devastated. Man Utd will be in for him because he’s perfect for United.
“Juventus would be in, Real have been buying young top potential, but do they want an experienced one to help? I reckon they’d be on the scene.”
Spurs Web Opinion
As soon as Kane made the admission to Redknapp, we knew the usual suspects in the media were going to come out and urge him to leave this summer. For Ferdinand to mention Manchester United as a possible destination is laughable as I don’t think they have any chance of getting him ahead of the likes of Real Madrid. Given the financial problems clubs are facing at the moment, there is no way many clubs can afford Kane this summer or even for the foreseeable future.
