Harry Kane’s departure from Tottenham will increasingly be portrayed as inevitable across the football press as Spurs prepare for their second season under Jose Mourinho. Kane now 27-years of age is hitting the point in his career whereby he will naturally be looking at what his efforts have produced. So far, beyond an array of personal achievements that the history will overlook, there’s not a single trophy to the England captain’s name.
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson told the Daily Mail that Spurs should test the resolve of not just Daniel Levy, whose financial position was brutally undermined by COVID-19, but of Harry Kane himself.
It’s ironic in a way that Merson thinks that Manchester United need a traditional centre forward, because when Kane is injured, so did Spurs!
United are suffering from precisely the same situation as Tottenham, whereby when certain attacking players hit a vein of form, it’s all good, but most of the time, there simply isn’t that reliable goalscorer in the park.
