Sadly, Jamie Redknapp is Probably Right About the Impact Of the Carabao Cup
By Harry Hotspur -

Carl Markham for Press Association Sport has spoken to Jamie Redknapp about the whole Harry Kane situation, and it is difficult to disagree with the former players’ views. Redknapp’s agenda against Tottenham has rumbled on and off since his father was sacked by Daniel Levy, and was never more so evident when Roy Keane, and he blew up live on Sky Sports a few weeks ago. With Redknapp seeking to make a case that the Tottenham squad was packed with internationals… However, what Jamie says here is all too true.

I believe along with Redknapp that the healing effect of the League Cup on players is negligible. For fans, the story is significantly different, but we’re talking about a player here. That’s an important distinction to acknowledge.

With Sergio Aguero leaving Manchester City, the timing of the opportunity certainly couldn’t be more aligned. As I’ve said previously, it doesn’t bother me one iota how much Daniel Levy says he wants for Harry Kane. Football is a place where big fees are not prohibitive for top-flight clubs that have a genuine desire to get deals done. Furthermore, if there is one side in the Premier League I would credit with the agility required to make Kane’s move happen, then it would be City.

Honestly, in all honesty – i would judge Kane for staying. Said it before, but under this current structure, even with great investment, and a real turn around in results, we are 2-3yrs from being a team with high chances of winning either the CL or the PL. Kane will be at the end of his career. Sterling wants £320k a week to stay at City, tell me how Kane is worth less than Sterling. Kane staying shows lack of desire to be the best.

Assuming a price of £120m+ (post-pandemic value) to liberate Kane so he can have something to show for his career aside from a few records, in City’s shoes wouldn’t either of the younger duo of Mbappe (with a year left to run and more global ‘brand’ appeal) or Haaland (who looks a beast plus the City connection) be a better investment for them in terms of value and longevity?
I appreciate that in Kane you get a player proven in the league, but you’re also going to be getting a 28 year old with iffy ankles. They should definitely steer well clear…please…

If you believe anything the papers say, they are this morning reporting that if Kane goes, it won’t be to a PL rival. Levy will only do business with a European team.

Not sure who can afford him, the article cites PSG (doubtful with Neymar and Mbappe on their books), Juventus (No money) and Real Madrid (Even less money).

If it’s true that Levy won’t sell to a PL team then Kane may find himself stuck at Spurs.
