Speaking on the Gold and Guest talk Tottenham podcast, Alasdair Gold admits that he wouldn’t be surprised to see Harry Kane stay at Hotspur for the rest of his career.

It was a whirlwind summer for the Spurs striker, which saw him captain England to the final of Euro 2020 intertwined with a transfer tug of war between his club and Manchester City, with the League champions wanting to add Kane to their star-studded attacking lineup.

Will Hotspur make top four this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Obviously, Kane never ended up leaving north London, as he confirmed via Twitter that he would be staying this summer, and that was followed by reports claiming Kane was now searching for a new contract from Tottenham, which could be seen as deserved following his 23-goal and 14-assist Premier League season last time out.

Gold spoke about how Kane may see out his career with Spurs.

“I think I’ve said this before, I wouldn’t be shocked, [if Kane never leaves Spurs] I wouldn’t, because I mean, there are two ways to look at it. You could say that there’s still the chance next summer, his value will have dropped slightly.

“I’d say slightly, because if he has another incredible season and he’s still got two years left on his deal, then your value doesn’t plummet.

“We’ve just seen [Kylian] Mbappe – Real Madrid trying to sign him for like £200 million when he had like nine months left on his contract, so there’s no kind of precedent set where it has to plummet.

“But on the other side, when you see that [Erling] Haaland is probably going to be moving on next summer, when you see that Mbappe is probably going to be moving on next summer, it’s almost like – as ridiculous as it sounds, because he’s such an incredible player – it’s almost like where does Harry Kane then fit into that?

“He’s said he doesn’t want to move abroad. Man City, you’d think, would probably have a go for Haaland, if Real Madrid are likely to get Mbappe.”

TIF Thoughts on Kane’s future…

As Gold alluded to, there could be a number of strikers on the move next summer including Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland, with the former out of contract next year and the latter reportedly having a release clause of around £64 million, so Kane might be forgotten about slightly.

Test your knowledge of these players' market values! How much do you think Hugo Lloris is worth?

currently sit top of the Premier League table with three wins and zero goals conceded, so if they can keep up that kind of form under Nuno Espirito Santo, there would appear no reason as to why Kane wouldn’t want to sign a new at Spurs if they will be challenging for silverware most years.
