Much has been said about Harry Kane and whether to not he will stay at Spurs this summer, and I have been catching up with football expert Warren van Dam on the podcast to discuss exactly why he should go. This will come as tough news for Spurs fans out there bu the reality is that when you gotta go, you gotta go.
Harry Kane will have his pick of suitors this summer and there are a couple of teams who could certainly afford the man. Here then is why he should be on his way.
Served His Time
Spurs fans should not be too frustrated with Kane if he does leave this summer because at the end of the day, the man has very much served his time. Kane has been at the club since he was a boy, he stayed there whilst he was being sent on loan so many times and he has never once inferred that he would like to leave the club. The man has been a shining light for Spurs and that gives him all of the reasons to go without looking back.
This is a man who is playing at the top of his game and a man who should finish his career with winners medals in his cabinet. Ultimately this is not a Spurs team which is going to do that for him and it looks highly unlikely that anything is going to change in the next couple of years. Spurs have had their chances of course, there was the Champions League final which they lost, the 3 semi-finals which they lost and of course the seasons when they could very well have won the league. The only way in which Harry Kane is going to win the medals that he deserves is if he leaves the club and goes to a team which has more chances of doing just that.
Age of The Player
Harry Kane is now 27 years old and very soon he will be turning 28, that is why now is the perfect time for him to go and get trophies elsewhere. Kane will have a good 4 or 5 years left in him and that gives him the most opportunity to get away to another club and really push to win the league and additional trophies in Europe and at home. The other point to make regarding his age is that given what he is worth to Spurs, it is unlikely that teams will pay that when he is 30 years old.
There is absolutely no doubting the fact that this is going to be a very difficult choice for Kane to make, having spent all of his career at the same club. With this being said, he is clearly ambitious and right now is one of the best players in the league, and that is why he should bid farewell to Spurs and move on to pastures new.
