Gabriel Agbonlahor has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the summer if either Manchester United or Manchester City come calling.

After a slow start to the season following a failed move to City last summer, Kane has been back to his best, potentially due to the arrival of Antonio Conte at Spurs.

Reports have indicated the striker wants assurances that the Italian will be backed in the summer transfer window before committing his future to Tottenham (The Sun).

In an interview with Sky Sports this week, the 28-year-old praised the impact Conte has had at Spurs and insisted the former Inter Milan boss could take the North Londoners back to a position where they can challenge for major honours again.

However, Agbonlahor believes that Kane has been patient enough at Tottenham and insists the time has come for the England captain to leave his boyhood club, given the Lilywhites’ struggles to get into the top four.

The former Aston Villa striker told talkSPORT (8:09 am, March 15, 2022) regarding Kane: “You have got to go.

“I think the joke’s over now. He has given them so much, Harry Kane, this season as well, he stayed. Nowhere near winning a trophy, nowhere near getting the top four.

“If I was him, I would 100% go to Manchester City, if they still want him, though. If Manchester United can get the proper manager, then go to Manchester United.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It is clear that Kane wants to remain in the Premier League for the rest of his career but I do not think he will be overly enthused about the prospect of joining Manchester United unless they perhaps appoint Mauricio Pochettino.

If and when Kane leaves Spurs, he would want a guarantee of being able to challenge for major honours at his next club. At the moment, only City and Liverpool can provide that guarantee and the latter would not be able to afford him. 

So, I would not be surprised if Kane decides to give Conte a full season at Tottenham and reconsiders his future in the summer of 2023 when his contract would be down to its final 12 months.
