John Terry has urged Harry Kane to quit Tottenham, insisting that the striker is not going to fulfil his ambitions of winning silverware at his boyhood club.
Kane’s entire focus for the moment is on helping England go all the way at the World Cup but the striker will soon have to make a decision over his club future.
The 29-year-old’s current deal at Tottenham runs out in the summer of 2024 (Transfermarkt) and reports over recent months from Germany have indicated that he will be Bayern Munich’s top transfer target for next summer (TZ).
The Daily Mail even asserted two weeks ago that Daniel Levy will not sell the England captain even if he refuses to sign a new deal. The report suggested that if the striker wanted to leave the club, he will have to run his contract down and leave on a free transfer in 2024.
Terry believes that Kane has no choice but to leave Spurs, insisting that the Lilywhites are not going to win silverware anytime soon.
The Chelsea legend told beIN SPORTS, Terry said: “I think Harry Kane has got ambitions to go and win trophies – he’s clearly not going to do that at Tottenham is he? Let’s be honest. He’s not, clearly. Let’s be honest with ourselves.
“He’s one of the best strikers in the world. He wants to win trophies. He wants to play for the best and biggest teams. Spurs are not that, Spurs are not going to give him what he wants. He wants to finish his career with some trophies.”

There is no doubt that Kane would be desperate to win trophies but at the same time, I believe it will mean a lot more for the striker to win one or two trophies at Spurs than five or six at a club like Man City or Real Madrid.
Tottenham are moving in the right direction under Conte and there is no reason why the club cannot challenge for major honours over the next couple of years if the Italian is backed.
