TalkSport host Alan Brazil thinks that Harry Kane’s departure could start a domino effect at Tottenham Hotspur, prompting Son Heung-min to leave as well.
Whilst Kane’s future has been a subject of hot debate recently, with the England captain himself not exactly helping matters by saying he won’t be focusing on his future until after this summer’s European Championships. But what sort of club would he leave behind if he were to depart?
Speaking on TalkSport whilst talking about an article by Martin Samuel in The Daily Mail suggesting Kane should join Chelsea, Brazil said that one departure could very well lead to another in the form of Son, and that could leave Tottenham with a lot of problems:
“I don’t think money comes into it, I think Harry’s very, very well looked after at Spurs, it’s his boyhood side. I find it hard to believe he’d go to Chelsea, but if he did go to Chelsea, my big question is, what happens to Son? Does he move on as well? If he does, Tottenham are in big trouble.”
Do you think Son Heung-min deserves a new deal at Spurs?
TIF Thoughts on Alan Brazils’ comments on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min…
Brazil is right to think that there would be trouble, especially when you consider the partnership that Son and Kane have developed this season. However, it might not be the worst thing in the world for the club to sanction.
With a combined Transfermarkt value of £184.5m plus a reported £340k a week in wages, that is a very sizeable war chest that the club could use in order to rebuild for the future. And if they wanted to spend that on one blockbuster player like Erling Haaland or spreading that out across the team and improving multiple positions, then it might just be what Spurs need to take their squad to the next level.
