Does Harry Kane staying at Spurs rely on Premier League success?
Harry Kane will face a difficult decision to stay with Tottenham Hotspur if Manchester United or Real Madrid come calling next summer, should Spurs fail to win the Premier League this year.
United are considered one of the favourites for the league title, along with local rivals Manchester City, while doubts remain about Spurs given their form at Wembley.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have still not won a league match at their temporary home since the start of 2017/18, and though they currently sit third in the Premier League table – largely based on their record of four away wins in four – some feel they may even struggle to qualify for the Champions League, let alone win the domestic title, if they continue to let themselves down at England’s national stadium
And Simon Jordan, the former Crystal Palace chairman, believes star striker Kane could be tempted away from north London because of this lack of silverware.
The discussion as to whether Kane is world class or not has started once again as he struck his sixth Premier League goal of the season on Saturday, taking his tally for club and country to 13 in September alone.
Jordan has no doubt Kane is up there with the best strikers in the world, and feels he could have a difficult decision to make next summer.
Speaking to Kick Off, Jordan said: “I’m not trying to be disrespectful to Tottenham, but if Manchester United come calling for Harry Kane, or Real Madrid – with an aging forward line – come calling for Harry Kane, I think in a year’s time it will be very difficult for Harry Kane, at his peak, with Tottenham potentially not winning the Premier League and maybe struggling to even get into the Champions League, to resist the opportunity to move along.”
