Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been linked with a move away from the club at the end of the season.
The 29-year-old will enter the final year of his contract in the summer and the North London outfit could be under pressure to sell him if he does not renew his contract with them.
Kane is yet to win a single trophy with Tottenham at the club level and there have been rumours that he could look to join an ambitious club capable of challenging for major trophies.
Former Tottenham player Marcel Desailly has now urged Kane to consider his future at the club.
Desailly cited the example of Robert Lewandowski who moved from Bayern Munich in order to experience something different and win trophies. Kane has been urged to move on as well.
“When I was playing, Tottenham were in the same situation,” Desailly said on beIN Sports. “No leadership, nothing. How many trophies they’ve won since 98 until now, it’s something that will be repeated.
“Like we’ve said, he might get a good contract or they might renew, but the idea like [Robert] Lewandowksi. He moved from a different type of club like Bayern Munich but he wanted to face something different, achieve something different – trophy, language, culture.
“Something different that you keep after football. So, he has to really wake up and either bring a better leadership into the system as Conte has revealed, or he has to move.
“Don’t be afraid, there’s a life after Tottenham. Don’t be afraid. This is what I’d like to tell him.”
The 29-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world and he deserves to play for a club capable of winning major trophies.
Tottenham are going through a transitional phase and it seems highly unlikely that they will be able to compete for the league title next year.
It remains to be seen whether Kane can secure a move away from the club at the end of the season. The England international is unlikely to have any shortage of suitors if he is on the market this summer. The 29-year-old would improve most teams in world football.
As for Tottenham, keeping him at the club will be crucial to their hopes of ending their wait for a trophy in the near future.
