Berbatov weighs in with his opinion on Harry Kane wanting to leave Tottenham

By Bruce Grove -

Dimitar Berbatov says Spurs should find a reasonable way to allow Harry Kane to leave after he said he wants out.

England captain, Kane, has been loyal to Tottenham for his entire career and he has had a fantastic one on an individual level.

He has scored more goals than players who have won multiple titles, but Spurs have still not won a trophy since he has been at the club.

Almost every summer, his future is up in the air, but he ends up staying put in North London.

But he wants to win team trophies now and has asked Spurs to allow him to leave and join a club where he can achieve that.

Tottenham doesn’t want to sell, although it remains unclear if they will grant him his wish.

Berbatov was in a similar situation when he played for Spurs and had to hand in a transfer request to force a move to Manchester United in 2008.

He doesn’t want Kane’s situation to be like his and says if truly the Englishman wants to leave, the Lilywhites have to make it easy for him.

He said via Sun Sports: “I saw the clip of [Kane] waving and clapping the fans after the defeat to Aston Villa and he could have just been thanking the fans for their support, after all that was the first time they were back at the stadium.

“I can see why that could be seen as him saying goodbye, but let’s not jump to conclusions and at the end of the day he’s still at the club and he’s got a big couple of months coming up.

“It’s never a good thing for a player and the club to fight, if a player has expressed they want to leave then they have made up their mind.

“If a club fights and makes a move away complicated for the player then it’s not a pleasant situation for everyone involved, including the fans and other players.

“If Kane has told the club he wants to leave then they should find a reasonable way to agree what the fee should be and how to part ways.”

From a guy who refused to play for us in case he got injured. Him, Modric, even Bale downed tools. Seems he has this season too.

Jermaine Jenas on 5Live, on Harry Kane. It’s up to a top new manager to convince Harry to stay. According to to JJ Levy must show Harry a list of players coming in over the next two years that can win the Premier League and get to the later stages of the Champions League each season.

It’s down to pound notes. Levy has a price range or he doesn’t go and just need England to win the euros

I think it’s just business to most players, more money, more prizes. You suffer a career ending injury tomorrow that would be it.

If Levy wants to make things worse at Spurs then he should hold Kane to his contract.

It’s clear to me the club is full of players that don’t want to be there ; the only thing keeping them there is money.

If you want to get a look at what happens to clubs that hold onto players who want out, take a look at Celtic and what has happened to them this season.

That’s what awaits Spurs only on a much larger scale.
