Harry Kane has been regarded as one of the best strikers in modern football. His ability to score goals and set up his teammates with ease has translated to several successful years in the Premier League. Kane has been superb individually, but trophyless season after trophyless season has affected the relationship between Kane and the club.
The 27-year-old has been a regular for Spurs since the early Pochettino days. At just 21 years old, Kane erupted in the Premier League with 21 goals in 34 games played. Since then, the England captain has scored over 20 goals in five of his seven seasons at Tottenham. In addition, this past season, Kane assisted 13 goals in the league (2 assists the previous season), showing how hard he has been working to take his game to the next level. However, after a Champions League final and Carabao cup defeat, Kane believes that moving to a bigger club will help him win trophies and get the recognition he so much deserves.
¨When I look back at the end of my career, these are all the things I’ll go over and take in a little bit more, but the goal right now as a player is to win team trophies,¨Harry Kane after Carabao Cup defeat
Agreement rumours with Manchester City
Even though Manchester City has said that they reached an agreement for Harry Kane with Spurs, the club from South London denies all rumors. According to Fabrizio Romano, Daniel Levy wants to keep Kane in the club, despite City´s interest. Nevertheless, Kane and his team believe that Spurs have softened their stand and are willing to sell him this summer.
If so, this summer could see Harry Kane move to a top team, possibly Manchester City. An ironic signing for the Citizens after Pep Guardiola stated that City could not afford a top striker.
¨Listen, with these prices we are not going to sign any striker – we cannot afford it, it’s impossible. That’s not going to happen, no. All the clubs struggle financially and we are not an exception.¨Guardiola on signing a new striker
