Will Harry Kane leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season or will the Englishman continue at Spurs for another term?
Harry Kane has been firing all cylinders this season for Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur. The English striker is not only finding the back of the net often but has also transformed into a playmaker by dropping deep to collect the ball before playing a final pass to Son Heung-min. The 27-year-old has already scored 14 goals along with 11 assists in just 24 Premier League appearances this season. Averaging a goal contribution every game.
Such has been Kane’s individual performance, however, football being a team sport there’s not much one player can do all by himself. Having said that, Spurs are currently placed eighth on the Premier League table after going through a dry patch of games midseason. The north London side started the new season on a bright note but were soon derailed off track due to inconsistent performances.
Harry Kane, at the age of 28, has not yet won a major trophy. This certainly is a cause for concern for Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese manager is certainly hell-bent on keeping his star striker next season, however, if silverware is not delivered this season then the chances of holding onto Kane seem bleak.
Despite being the club’s second highest all-time top scorer, it is quite shocking that the 28-year-old has not yet won a major trophy with Spurs. With that being said, it could all change in the coming few months. Tottenham are in the final of the EFL Cup and have been performing admirably in the UEFA Europa League.
If Mourinho somehow manages to deliver both these trophies and end the trophy drought. Then, a change of cards could be on Harry Kane’s mind. As of now, the English striker has received interest from sides such as Manchester United,Chelsea and Manchester City as possible destinations for next summer if Tottenham end up trophyless once again.
The only possible way that 2018 World Cup Golden Boot winner would consider extending his stay at north London would by winning silverware this season. Tottenham Hotspur are set to face Manchester City in the EFL Cup in what will undoubtedly be a tough fixture for both sides. Meanwhile, the Europa League will intensify once the quarter-finals and semi-finals approach.
