Peterborough owner and club Director of Football Barry Fry has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur may not be able to keep hold of talismanic striker Harry Kane this summer.
At 27 years of age, Fry is more than aware that Kane is entering his prime years and may be keeping one eye on silverware before he approaches the other side of thirty.
The closest Kane has come to adding a winners’ medal to his record came in the 2019 Champions League final, where the England international saw his side felled by Liverpool in a 2-0 defeat.
The Lilywhites have endured another difficult campaign that has seen them crash out of the Europa League at the hands of Dinamo Zagreb, whilst Spurs’ FA Cup campaign remains a distant memory.
Speaking to FootballFanCast, Fry did concede that loyalty could keep Kane at Spurs but nonetheless talked up the prospect of his departure:
“I think there’s a bigger picture this year, because if they fail in everything, and it looks like that’s going to happen, Tottenham will have a big, big problem in convincing Harry Kane to want to stay.
“Now, he’s showed his loyalty to Tottenham time and time again. He wants to stay at Tottenham. But he’s an ambitious young man, he’s 27, 28 now and you know he either stays there out of loyalty, but will he win anything? He deserves to win something. And I don’t think Tottenham are going to win too many things.”
Kane’s prolific talismanic status is undisputed; the £108 million-valued hitman has 17 goals and 13 assists in just 27 outings this season in an almighty testament to his abilities.
A striker of Kane’s calibre surely deserves better if Spurs fail to meaningfully compete for major trophies.
