Rio Ferdinand has questioned if Harry Kane will be content to see out the rest of his career at Tottenham Hotspur, even though the club might not get their hands on big trophies.
Kane is arguably playing the best football of his career this season, with Jose Mourinho seemingly bringing the best out of the striker in a deeper role.
The England captain has already notched up 17 goals and 14 assists in all competitions so far this campaign (transfermarkt.com).
Predictably, reports linking him with a move away from Spurs have once again resurfaced over the past few weeks.
It has been suggested that Pep Guardiola wants to sign the 27-year-old as Sergio Aguero’s replacement (Sport Bild’s Christian Falk via The Sun) while Real Madrid are also looking to take Kane to the Santiago Bernabeu (Don Balon).
Ferdinand insisted that the striker could look back on his career with regret if he does not win major trophies, given the level of his current performances.
The former Manchester United defender said on his YouTube channel Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE: “My fear for Harry Kane is if he does all this, and he wins, and he breaks records for Spurs scoring goals, but doesn’t get his hands on big trophies, will he be content?
“Will he be satisfied? Will he sit there in his armchair afterwards and say ‘I’ve had a great career and loved every minute’?
“Not everyone can win, I understand that, but when you’re playing at the level he’s playing at the moment, surely he’s got to be winning.”

Winning one Premier League title with Spurs would mean much more to Kane than winning three of four titles with Real Madrid. However, if we end this season trophyless, I would not be surprised if the striker starts contemplating his future at the club.
