Pundit Robbie Mustoe has recently spoken about Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham Hotspur.
Mustoe recently made an appearance on the latest episode of The 2 Robbies podcast and the panel discusses multiple issues involving the recent Premier League game week. One topic of discussion was Spurs’ loss to Manchester City. Mustoe talked about Kane’s future and he believes that the Englishman should look for an exit if Spurs don’t win a trophy.
Kane is a product of the Spurs youth academy and the Englishman spent loan stints at clubs like Millwall, Leicester and Leyton Orient in his youth days. Now 27, Kane is yet to win a single trophy at Tottenham despite having achieved personal accolades in becoming the league’s top scorer on two occasions (as per Transfermarkt).
Should Kane look to leave in the summer?
Mustoe believes that Kane is now at an age where he needs to win the Premier League and he can walk into any club in the division.
He said: “I’m all over that. I think after this season, he’s there again for Jose and he’s trying to win a trophy and if they don’t win the League Cup against Man City and they don’t go all the way in the Europa League and they finish outside the top four, for me, it absolutely is the right point to say, ‘You know what, I love this club, absolutely love this club, and I’ve stayed here and I’ve seen the new stadium and I’ve been part of the Pochettino thing and now the Mourinho project – but I’ve got to think about myself.’
“I mean, he’s in his absolute prime. He would walk into any team in the Premier League, whatever club he wants to. I think he’s got to go and win a Premier League title and go bang in some goals and go enjoy his football again and show everybody what a great finisher he is with the opportunities given week in week out. I just think it’s time, and there should be no problems with him doing that.”
TIF Thoughts on Kane’s future…
Kane’s current deal at Spurs runs out in the summer of 2024 and the Englishman has already described himself as being an ‘ambitious’ player and even admitted that it isn’t certain that he will stay at Spurs forever (as per The Athletic).
He has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Manchester City in the past. And since his current deal at Spurs runs out in 2024, the London-based club might still be able to pocket a handsome fee from a potential sale in the future.
So if Tottenham don’t win a trophy this season and Kane opts to leave, the club could sell him and get enough money to bring in a potential replacement of substantial quality.
