Teddy Sheringham has claimed that he cannot see Harry Kane sticking around at Tottenham, insisting that the striker would have had an agreement with Daniel Levy about leaving the club this summer.
Kane is rumoured to be on the radars of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.
The striker made no secret of his desire to win the biggest trophies in the game in an interview with Gary Neville back in May, also admitting that he will have a conversation with Levy regarding his future.
The fact that he once again fell agonisingly short of holding a trophy aloft on Sunday could arguably only strengthen the striker’s desire to win one at club level sooner rather than later.
It remains to be seen whether Kane will get the move he wants, with reports indicating that Spurs remain resolute in their desire to hold on to him.
However, Sheringham believes that the 27-year-old will not have said what he did publicly if he did not think he was on his way out of the North London club.
“If he hasn’t got some sort of deal with Levy, I’d be very surprised.
“For him to come out and say what he said and then still be at Tottenham next year, I can’t see that happening.
“If it does, it might work in [Man City’s] favour, because he’s talked about playing with De Bruyne, that would make them phenomenal for the next four or five years.
“If he does have to stay at Tottenham and Cavani stays for the next year, that might work in Harry Kane’s favour for Harry Kane to go to United then.
“City need a centre-forward now with Aguero leaving, so we’ll have to wait and see really. But I’d be really surprised if Kane was still at Tottenham at the start of the season.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Even if Kane did have a verbal agreement with Levy about a transfer, the Spurs chairman is unlikely to accept any offer that is lower than his valuation of the striker. I cannot see the likes of United or City mustering up the fee Levy will demand this summer, particularly considering that there could be cheaper alternatives like Haaland and Lukaku available.
