Tottenham centre-forward Harry Kane has been warned he putting his career in danger at the club if he fails to angle for a transfer to rivals Manchester City or Manchester United in the summer.
The 27-year-old star is on course to become the Lilywhites’ record scorer, while he is in contention to break Alan Shearer’s Premier League scoring record if Kane continues at his current rate.
Harry is yet to win major silverware with Tottenham, though he has a chance in late April when they taken on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
Nevertheless, it’ll take a strong turnaround for them to qualify for the Champions League and former Spurs star Danny Murphy believes this summer is Harry’s last chance to push through a Tottenham exit.
‘It’s a huge summer for Harry Kane. If he doesn’t leave Tottenham now, he never will,’ Danny wrote in the Daily Mail.
‘He’ll finish as the club’s record goalscorer and have a statue built outside the stadium if he stays but at the expense of winning the trophies his talent deserves.’
While Harry is undoubtedly one of the finest strikers in the world, his age means suitors may be reluctant to meet Jose Mourinho’s side’s £150 million valuation of the England skipper.
Murphy also thinks Manchester United would be a good option, even if the Englishman may have to wait a little longer for top honours.
‘Picking the right club would also be vital for Kane, who doesn’t have the luxury of helping to build a long-term project,’ continued Danny.
‘For example, Manchester United would be improved by signing the England captain and could afford his transfer fee and wages but, for Kane, is it worth leaving Spurs without that guarantee of immediate success?
‘United might still be a year or two away from winning the big trophies which makes me think Manchester City looks a better fit.’
