As important and as crucial as Harry Kane might be for Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho realised time and time again that he can’t put all of his eggs in that single basket. We’ve seen what happened when Spurs lost their talisman and everything started falling apart.
So quite clearly, they will need another hitman to accompany the big Englishman up front and ensure he is both on his toes and covered with quality support. Well, who better to do that than the certified striker that is Luis Suarez from Barcelona?
At least that’s what Micky Gray believes Mourinho should do next. Pull the trigger on the Uruguayan. Here’s what he said for talkSPORT: “Do you go and get Suarez or do you go and get [Gareth] Bale? Then you’re looking at the ages of the players in the squad. He actually works well with more experienced players, Jose, just look at his Inter Milan team.”
“The only stumbling block in [a move for Suarez] is his wages. What Daniel Levy has to look at is that there is no transfer fee, and they can afford to pay his £400k-£500k-a-week wages. Luis Suarez has got the ego, got the background and the track record to go to Spurs and say: “You can play Harry Kane but you’re playing me as well.”
Of course, Suarez himself is seemingly out of Barcelona with one foot already as the new coach Ronald Koeman doesn’t count on him anymore. With that in mind and his contract coming to an end, a move to the Premier League could very well be on the table.
Suarez might be getting older but he still has that killer instinct and is lethal in front of goal. He wouldn’t necessarily take Kane’s spot but he can be an adequate alternative and someone to offer healthy competition to the English striker.
If he is truly available, Mourinho should not think twice and get Daniel Levy to break the kitty.
