Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Premier League midfielder Lee Hendrie has suggested that Harry Kane is facing a defining season at Tottenham.
According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein (via OneFootball), some close to the north London club believe Kane could remain at White Hart Lane for the rest of his career.
However, with Jose Mourinho’s side failing to compete for major honours, Hendrie thinks the 27-year-old could still leave Tottenham in the summer in a now-or-never moment.
Discussing Kane’s future in an exclusive interview with FFC, the former Villa midfielder said:
“The question now to Harry Kane is, ‘does he want to win trophies?’ If he does, let’s face it, he could go to any football club, any football club.”
Speaking on the subject further, Hendrie added:
“I feel this season is going to be the season where we’re going to know if Harry Kane will stay at Spurs or [whether] he’s obviously going to go and leave the club and start to think about trophies. The way Spurs have been this season, they’ve been hit and miss. You know, there’s lots of sagas with [Jose] Mourinho.
“I just feel that at the end of the season, Harry Kane’s got a big choice to make because I can guarantee you now any football club [would take him], well I’m pretty sure he’ll [at least] be linked away again because I can’t see how Spurs are going to end up finishing in Europe this season.”
One club Kane has been linked with in the past is Real Madrid, and it is a potential transfer that makes sense if the England captain does decide to leave White Hart Lane in the near future. The Spanish giants’ first-choice striker Karim Benzema is now 33 years of age, so it would hardly be a surprise to see them targeting a forward of Kane’s calibre as a successor to the Frenchman.
