Harry Kane is undoutbtedly one of the best players on the planet when it comes to putting the ball in the back of the net, two more against Everton mean 32 goals in 32 games already this season, and that’s playing down the fact he has got a lot more attributes about him which make him into a top footballer. Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of ‘calendar year’ stats when you outscore players such as Alan Shearer (Premier League goals) and proven world class performers Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski (overall goals) , he deserves all the credit out there especially as for some inexplicable reason he dosen’t seem to be able to score in August. Vultures are already circling around him and a number of clubs are reportedly interested in taking him away from North London to spearhead their attack.
WILL HE STAY OR WILL HE GO
The question is would he actually go? Kane is a young motivated footballer with the world at his feet, his reported wage of 100k+ a week is not a paupers one but his profile is one of somebody who could command at least double that in the current environment. Another key issue is his temperament and general demeanour, he most definitely is not an agitator and clearly a man who loves playing for Tottenham Hotspur. His relationship with manager Mauricio Pochettino is very strong and he has regularly praised the influence the incumbent manager has had on his career and the improvements made at the club, with two consecutive second place finishes in the Premier League and a very easy on the eye style of football.
Make no bones about it, bids will come in for Harry Kane this summer, whether they are accepted (or we even hear about them) is a totally different matter. Spurs are due to move into their new stadium next season and my personal view is that the England man will want to be at the club in their first historic season there and I do not expect him to leave before then. However a big issue at the club is their lack of trophies. As we stand they are nearly 10 years without a trophy, their last being the 2008 League Cup under Juande Ramos. Kane has even said himself he wants to win things and if Tottenham, whilst without doubt are becoming a much higher profile club and a challenger for titles, if they have not won anything by the end of next season, I can see their star player leaving, on the proviso a suitably high bid is made and if he continues in his current vein that amount could be astronomic. A world record transfer fee incoming?
