Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane believes Harry Kane has to leave Tottenham Hotspur this season in order to win the trophies his status deserves.
Speaking after the Spurs captain inspired England to a 2-0 win over Albania on Sunday evening, Keane said Kane is not going to win trophies at the club.
“If you are a top player you want to win the big trophies. There’s a big few months coming up for Tottenham – the League Cup final and can they get into the top four? That’s a huge question mark, will it influence him?
“He’s under contract and Tottenham will have a lot to say about it. But if you are in his shoes this summer, l think he has to move to win the big prizes. He’s not going to do it at Tottenham,” added Keane.
Tottenham play Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on April 25. They are currently sixth in the Premier League, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
With three years remaining on his contract at Spurs, Kane said he will not let rumours about his future distract him despite sparking more transfer speculation about his future by declining to offer a cast-iron assurance he will still be at the club next season.
Ahead of England’s World Cup Qualifier in Albania, Kane was asked whether the speculation around his future would impact his performances. “I think that’s a hard question to answer right now,” he said.
“It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros. To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.
“I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.”
