Speaking on a recent video posted on his YouTube channel, Alasdair Gold discussed whether or not he felt Harry Kane could leave Tottenham Hotspur next summer if they fail to win any trophies this season.
Making his Tottenham debut as an 18-year-old back in 2011, Kane has gone on to cement himself as not only one of Tottenham’s greatest ever forwards, but one of the Premier League’s best ever too, scoring 201 goals over his 301 appearances for the club, 150 of which have come in the Premier League, enough to rank him as the joint ninth-highest goalscorer in the history of the competition.
This was one subject of discussion on a recent video Gold posted on YouTube, in which a fan asked the journalist whether Tottenham would have to win trophies this season in order for the likes of Kane to stay in north London.
He said: “I think it probably depends on how close they come. If there’s a real belief – if they finish the season second or third, get to a couple of finals, then yeah, why not?
“If it looks like it’s going to be another, ‘Well, we’re kind of almost there but not quite,’ then perhaps players look at their future. But, I still do think with Kane, it’s just so difficult for him to get a move because of the values involved.
“I think [Jose] Mourinho is a big factor, but, like I say, it’s down to the players as well. They’ve got to get into the positions to win those trophies. There’s only so much Mourinho can do off the pitch, they’ve got to do it on there.”
Do you think Kane will ever leave Tottenham?
From Gold’s comments, it would appear as if the journalist is of the belief that, should Spurs finish towards the top end of the table this season, as well as managing to get to a cup final or two, then the chances of the club keeping Kane, amongst others, will greatly improve.
And, things couldn’t have started much better for Spurs this season, as Mourinho’s side are currently on a seven-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, sitting in second place in the table, as well as topping their Europa League group and booking their place in the Carabao Cup quarter-final.
However, should the club fail in their attempts to win a trophy this season, with Kane edging closer and closer to 30, in our opinion, it would not be surprising to see the forward consider his options next summer.
