Harry Kane has thrown his long-term future into question over the weekend as he failed to commit his future to Tottenham Hotspur. The England captain was questioned whether he sees himself at Spurs in the future, but he reiterated that plans change and that he hopes to win trophies in his career. Spurs have struggled to get over the line in recent seasons when it has come to the domestic cup competitions.
They are already out of all cup competitions this season, including the Champions League, which organisers are still hopeful of finishing despite postponing the competition due to the Coronavirus. However, Jose Mourinho’s arrival was supposed to have a positive effect on Spurs when it comes to silverware, which means Kane may give the club one final season to see whether they can compete with the best in England and abroad.
Kane Wants To Win Trophies
The revelation came as Kane admitted that if Spurs were unable to compete for silverware, then he would be forced to leave the club in order to achieve his goals. There will be no lack of suitors for the England captain, but the transfer fee that will likely prize him away from Tottenham would likely be over £100 million.
Kane has been injured for much of the season since Christmas, but he is hopeful of getting back fit in time for when the season resumes. Talks are ongoing as to when that date may actually be, with the date of April 30th likely to be pushed back. Kane himself has admitted that the season should be void should they not be able to end the season by the end of June, with players needing a break over the summer due to the European Championships taking place in the summer of 2021.
Before getting injured against Southampton in January, Kane had scored eleven goals in 20 games in the Premier League. In November, he became the third-highest scorer in the club’s history, and to date, he has scored 181 goals in 278 appearances.
Where Could Kane End Up?
As we mentioned, there are a host of club’s that would be interested in the England captain should he become available in the summer. However, the club’s that are interested will be cut down once they realise the sum that will be required to prize him away from Tottenham. The figure could mean that Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid will all have to pull out of the running unless they can get some of their biggest earners off the wage bill.
The most recent reports indicate that Manchester United and Juventus will be leading the race to sign the England captain. United will be looking for a new striker in the summer, and Kane certainly fits the bill on what the Old Trafford club will be looking for. Meanwhile, Juventus are hoping to bring in a new striker too. The decision will be up to Kane, but he has options at home, and abroad.
