With yet another season without Champions League football on the horizon for Tottenham Hotspur, panic is starting to set in amongst the north London side’s fanbase. The fear of star man Harry Kane leaving the club is quickly becoming a reality, and a possible move for the striker this summer has stolen the headlines since Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester United.  

Kane has been on Spurs’ books since he was around 10 years old. However, he has never shied away from his ambitions and he has made it very clear that he wants to win trophies. In fact, it’s all he can think about it seems. 

“I just want to win, I want to win trophies. I don’t think there is a day that goes past when I don’t think I want to win something,” the 27-year-old told Thierry Henry in a famous interview a few years ago. “I want to win the Premier League, I want to win the Champions League, I want to win the FA Cup.

“In three years’ time if I haven’t won a few trophies by then I think it would be disappointing. In three years’ time when you walk in the training ground there’s got to be a wall saying Premier League winners or FA Cup winners or European Cup winners.”

Of course, those who remember this interview with the Arsenal legend will be quick to point out that four years have passed, and Kane’s trophy cabinet is still bare. In that time, they have reached their first Champions League final. However, Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners on pursuit of their sixth European triumph and Spurs were left to lick their wounds. 

Earlier this season, Tottenham were flying high at the top of the table and the Premier League odds were starting to sway in their favour. But it’s been a downhill spiral since then and Spurs currently sit six points adrift from West Ham in fourth. 

The fact that the Hammers are on the verge of Champions League football next season will definitely be rubbing Spurs’ fans up the wrong way. For them, their last remaining hope of salvaging something from this season lies with a victory over Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final. 

The League Cup certainly isn’t what Kane had in mind four years ago when he said he dreams of winning trophies, and it probably won’t sway his decision on wanting to leave come the end of the season. According to reports, only Champions League football would change his mind, and that looks very unlikely. 

You can’t blame Kane for wanting to leave. His ambitions are not met by the club and chairman Daniel Levy. There will be plenty of potential suitors this summer, but with the 27-year-old just halfway through a six-year contract he signed back in June 2018, leaving the club is not as straightforward as it would seem. 

It beggars belief that Kane signed such a long contract back in 2018, and it could yet come back to bite him as he pushes for a move come the end of the season. Anyone who knows Levy, knows that he is the not the easiest to negotiate with and he won’t budge for a penny less than what he values Kane at, which, judging by past price tags, will be very high! 

There’s no doubt that the Manchester sides, as well as the likes of Chelsea, will be sniffing around, and Kane would certainly make them much more favourable in the Premier League betting tips. However, with the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc on clubs’ finances, a move for a player like Kane from a club who often play hardball when it comes to negotiating seems unlikely this summer.

Instead, as sad as it is that his talent is wasted at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, he will probably need to wear down another year or two of his contract and go from there.
