Alan Shearer has predicted that Harry Kane will remain with Tottenham in the summer transfer window, but believes he could leave the following year if he’s still not won any silverware.
The 26-year-old is yet to win any trophies in his career so far, despite being recognised as one of the elite strikers in the world right now.
He’s scored 181 goals in 278 senior appearances for Spurs, but the North London club haven’t won a piece of silverware since the League Cup back in 2008.
BBC pundit Shearer has predicted that the England captain may look to leave Spurs in the future and expects to give them another year next season.
“My guess is that if he doesn’t win anything in the next 12 months then he has to leave,” Shearer told the Match of the Day podcast.
“My guess is that he’ll do another year I think and then if nothing comes in terms of trophy-wise then I think he’ll be off. Very, very, very good. In terms of finishing, in terms of brining people into the game.”
Goal reports that Kane would be open to a Spurs exit as they look to rebuild under manager Jose Mourinho and would consider a switch to Premier League rivals Manchester United.
Spurs are in a period where they need to make a number of changes to their squad and they need to keep their key players around for that transition to run smoothly.
Kane is the one individual over anyone that Mourinho can’t afford to lose, as trying to find a replacement for him in the transfer window would prove an impossible task.
He’s still under contract with the club until 2024 and has been loyal to them for so many years, so it seems odd to question his loyalty.
But he’s a supreme talent that deserves to be lifting trophies and it will all come down to individual preference of what he wants to get out of his career.
