The news hit England like a bomb last night. Emblematic player of Tottenham, a club with which he scored 165 goals in 240 Premier League matches, Harry Kane (27) told Spurs that he wanted to pack up. After eight years in the first team, the England international (53 caps, 34 goals) has probably ended up getting tired of not playing in a team capable of getting involved in the fight for the title and whose last is a League Cup won in… 2008!
Eager to settle his case before the kickoff of the Euro, which will be given in three weeks, Kane may however have to wait longer before hoping to convince Daniel Levy to let go. Gareth Bale and Luka Modric can attest to this. The two players had to work hard to get the Spurs boss to agree to sell them to Real Madrid. If Kane’s intentions are now clearly displayed, it remains to know those of his club.
Kane is bored
On the side of Tottenham, the Londoners were keen to communicate on the subject. Contacted by the London Evening Standard Sport, Tottenham procrastinates. “Our goal is to finish the season as strong as possible. This is what everyone should be focusing on. “ A front press release since the Guardian explains that the leaders of the club were taken aback by the request of their star.
For his part, The Times confirms that Kane ended up being disappointed with his leadership’s promises of greatness. And if Tottenham did play a Champions League final in 2019, the record is far too poor for the English striker. Some media also believe that he did the season too long under the Spurs jersey even if he scored 27 goals and delivered 15 assists in 44 matches in all competitions. A terrible finding for Tottenham, but today everyone agrees that Harry Kane must finally join a team of his standing. “Divorce can get ugly, but Kane has grown too big for his club”. The title of the Times sums up the situation very much.
