The Spurs journalist provided his thoughts on Kane’s future following the recent comments to surface from a Sky Sports interview with Harry Kane in which the England striker stated his hunger to win major silverware.
Kane said: “The goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. As much as this [award] is great, I want to be winning the biggest prizes that there is to offer as a team and we are not quite doing that.”
With the interview being interpreted by some as a sign he would like to leave this summer, Gold provided his thoughts on Kane’s future with the north London side.
He said: “I can’t see anyone that can afford to buy Harry Kane or will pay the money it would take to get Harry Kane this summer. I can’t see it.
“I could be wrong. He could have the most incredible Euros and someone just goes, ‘look, we’ve got to do this ridiculous deal – £175m, £200m whatever it is, we have to do it.’
“My gut tells me I can’t see how that happens. Especially, you know, [he’s] turning 28 in the summer as well. He’s not an old man or anything, but for that kind of money, I wonder whether you take less of a risk or gamble on a younger player.”
TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…
It is understandable how some fans may have interpreted Kane’s words in a number of different ways, however, it is also understandable that there may some frustration from Kane’s point of view.
For a striker to have 21 goals and 13 assists in the league alone and come away at the end of the season with no silverware and potentially not even a spot playing in European football for next season is incredible.
If it was a one-off season where Spurs had failed to get their hands on silverware then we’re sure Kane’s comments would not gain the same concern from fans, but this is now Kane’s eighth season since earning a spot regularly in the Spurs XI without lifting any major silverware.
