Tottenham Hotspur are a club in turmoil as their season gets worse with Jose Mourinho leaving his post as manager days before an important final. To add to the misery, Harry Kane could leave at the end of the season and is said to be evaluating his options.
The news comes on the back of a defeat in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City. With Spurs sitting five points adrift of a place in the top four, there is a risk of the club not playing Champions League football next season.
Harry Kane to Consider Spurs Future at the End of the Season
Evaluating His Options
Harry Kane is a technically gifted player with prolific goal-scoring abilities, but the England captain was not always destined for greatness. After a series of unsuccessful loan spells at Milwall, Norwich City, Leyton Orient, and Leicester City, the Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino decided to offer Kane a chance. Kane started a goal-fest that helped him finish the season with 31 goals in all competitions. The forthcoming seasons were better, and this added to his burgeoning reputation. Despite constant links to other clubs, the former Arsenal youth player has stuck to his boyhood club.
A club that is underperforming while playing host to one of the hottest strikers in the world was invariably going to appeal to the elite clubs, and so it did. At the height of these rumours, The Spurs captain signed a new contract at the North London club, and as a statement of intent, he bagged two golden boots in consecutive seasons. As for this season, Kane leads the way in both goals and assists. The form has left the Spurs chairman holding on to his prized possession like never before.
Kane to Go at the End of the Season in Hopes of Winning Medals
The pressure is starting to intensify as the 27-year old is reportedly considering a move away from North London if the club fails to qualify for the Champions League. The growing gap between the club and the fourth place is not doing any favours either. While the deal seems likely, Kane would not be available for any price less than the touted €120 million price tag. The possibility of Kane forcing a move seems less likely, and it could potentially provide a sense of relief to the club.
Who Could Sign Harry Kane?
Harry Kane‘s reluctance to force a move could mean that any potential suitor would have to meet the fee in full. The clubs that could stump up the requisite fee include Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Manchester City. Their interest in the player is not concrete, and the decision to sign a player for such a price may be seen as not financially viable during a global pandemic. Regardless of the rumours, Kane will stay committed but at the end of his career, he will look back at this stage.
