Former Tottenham Manager Fears Spurs Could Lose Their Superstar To Bigger Clubs

published :

Harry Kane has to be the one striker in the Premier League that everyone would want in their side. The English striker might have started this season slowly too but after his August shenanigans of not finding the back of the next, he has scored 4 goals for us.

That certainly has caught the attention of a number of clubs. Kane’s performances in the last 3 years have seen him rack up a number of impressive records and there are fears that the Englishman could join another powerhouse according to former manager Tim Sherwood.

Sherwood didn’t have the best of times when managing us but stated that when the big clubs come calling, it would be difficult for anyone to say no.

The Metro quoted Sherwood as saying,

“There’s only so much loyalty someone can show,” Sherwood said.

“Tottenham have been a great club for Harry and he’s been paying them back tenfold. He’s been outstanding over the last couple of seasons, he grew up a stone’s throw from the ground and the kid loves the club.”

Sherwood then went to name some of the clubs that might come calling and somehow included Manchester United in that list as well.

“But that only lasts a certain amount of time. Then he starts seeing the pound signs and sees the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid or – dare I say it – Manchester United – and then your head gets turned.”

Sherwood further added that we have to win something if we are to keep hold of Kane and that does not include the League Cup.

“The only way they can keep him is to win something this year. That something might not be the Carabao Cup, it might have to be the league or the FA Cup.”

We haven’t won anything since the League Cup in 2008 but we seem to be building a quality side under Mauricio Pochettino. Sherwood does make sense, as other clubs are circling around our best players. As soon as they offer crazy wages, players could leave, just like Kyle Walker.

Kane might be one of the highest paid players in our club as he earns a reported £120,000 per week which includes a basic wage and performance related clauses, but the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona can offer him double that without having to worry about their finances.

The only way we can keep Kane is if we actually win trophies regularly and thus, it is imperative that Poch and team achieve some kind of success this season.
