Spurs striker Harry Kane intends to carry on playing until the age of 40, according to The Athletic.

Kane is currently 27, so if he fulfills his ambition, he could still be in action in 2034.

The Englishman’s Premier career started back in 2012.

He has since scored 159 top-flight goals, leaving him 101 adrift of Alan Shearer’s all-time competition record.

Shearer netted his last goal in April 2006 at the age of 35.

Kane will turn 28 this year, entering the theoretical peak years of his career.

Kane has yet to land a major trophy in his career, and it remains to be seen whether individual accomplishments are enough to satisfy him.

There is no guarantee that he remains in England.

And the second question mark concerns his .

Kane may have the appetite to continue playing for another 13 years or so, but his body could let him down.

His ankle is the standout worry. Since 2016, ankle injuries have ruled him out at five separate intervals (via Transfermarkt).

These Spurs fans are optimistic about Harry Kane’s longevity
