TalkSport pundit Simon Jordan has recently discussed the future of Tottenham star Harry Kane.
Jordan was one of the guests on the latest episode of the White and Jordan show on TalkSport and he talked about numerous issues involving the Premier League. One topic of discussion was Harry Kane’s future at Spurs and whether he should look to leave the club or not. Jordan believes that there are multiple ‘ifs’ about Kane’s future and they would determine his situation at Spurs.
Kane was recently asked about his decision and he made it clear that he’s currently focusing on the England games. He said that thinking about his future during the season can hamper his performances and he’ll only think about it after the Euros (as per Sky Sports).
Is Kane destined to stay in the summer?
Jordan talked about the England captain and he believes that Kane’s future depends on whether he trusts Jose Mourinho, whether anyone can pay big money for him and many such factors.
He said: “The challenge for Harry is if there is an agenda for him to move and Tottenham are prepared to entertain it, there’s a big if here. If he’s prepared to leave, if he doesn’t believe in Mourinho; if Mourinho stays and if Tottenham are prepared to sell him. The bigger if is if someone is going to write out a cheque at this time in the global economy of football for £150, £160, £200 million.”
TIF Thoughts on Kane’s future…
As things stand, Kane is currently valued at £108 million. David Ornstein has stated that Spurs could demand a fee in excess of £120 million to let the Englishman go. In a football environment where the transfer market has been impacted by the pandemic, it might be tough for potential suitors to pay that kind of fee.
He has already contributed to 43 goals in all competitions this season and if he keeps going at that rate, his value can increase even further. If Spurs win the League Cup, that too can contribute to an increase in his value. So keeping all those factors in mind, it might be tough for Kane to leave Spurs this summer.
