There is no doubt that Harry Kane is one of the worlds hottest properties, being in sensational form for both club and country, with clubs looking on in envy at Tottenham Hotspur, for whom he is the darling of their fans.
But according to a report by the International Business Times, Tottenham are in real danger of losing their star man to one of the world’s big clubs – with Manchester United at the forefront of the list of clubs who would be able to finance a deal for Kane – and whom would have the power to turn Kane’s head their way.
Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan is quoted as saying “I’m not trying to be disrespectful to Tottenham, but if Manchester United come calling for Harry Kane, or Real Madrid – with an ageing forward line – come calling for Harry Kane, I think in a year’s time it will be very difficult for Harry Kane, at his peak, with Tottenham potentially not winning the Premier League and maybe struggling to even get into the Champions League, to resist the opportunity to move along”.
Such a statement will no doubt lead to cries of derision from Tottenham fans – but having seen Gareth Bale leave their club to join Real Madrid after making such an impact at White Hart Lane, you do have to wonder just whether Kane has the ability and/or opportunity to fulfil all the footballing dreams he has whilst in the Spurs white and blue.
Tottenham have started the new season well in the Premier League, only losing one of their 7 games played so far and lying third in the league table, albeit already five points behind the two Manchester clubs, neither of whom Spurs have yet played.
Spurs also won their first two Champions League group stage games emphatically – but have a double header upcoming against Real Madrid to contend with before hoping to secure their knockout phase place with the final games against Dortmund and Nicosia.
But Spurs fans know that it will be silverware what really helps to keep Kane at the club – and the fact is that apart from one League Cup win in 2008, they have not hoisted any significant trophy aloft since their 1990/91 FA Cup Final win – and it is now fast approaching 60 years since they were champions of English football.
Any club would want Harry Kane at their club….you have to imagine that success must visit Tottenham Hotspur soon, or else Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona et al will all be making him offers that you truly feel he, if not his club, would struggle to refuse.
