Glenn Hoddle gives worrying verdict on Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham

Glenn Hoddle has told BeIN Sports that he thinks Harry Kane will leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, but only if Spurs fail to win a trophy – or miss out on qualifying in the top-four places in the Premier League.

Kane, who turns 28 in the summer, is yet to win a trophy at Tottenham despite scoring 210 goals in his 321 appearances for the club. He has been linked with big-money moves to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City.


But there is debate over whether Kane could remain at Spurs. Currently sitting in eighth in the Premier League, Spurs are still in with a decent shout of finishing in the top four – especially as they have a game in hand.

Spurs have also reached the Carabao Cup final under Jose Mourinho, and are yet to get out of second gear in the Europa League. But Hoddle thinks without top four or silverware, Kane will leave in the coming months.

“It breaks my heart to give this answer, but if they don’t win silverware – or they don’t look as if they’re going to win silverware, I think he will leave,” Hoddle said.”That is why it is a crossroads for Spurs, a massive season for them.

“The League Cup can be a stepping stone for trophies in the future. But I do think Kane will look to leave – it will break his heart, and the hearts of Spurs fans. But that will be on his radar, if we haven’t won the league cup or the Europa League – or don’t finish in the top four.”

TBR’s view – Which club would suit Kane right now?

Clearly, Manchester City need a striker. Sergio Aguero is struggling for fitness and question marks remain over whether Gabriel Jesus is the long-term answer. Kane would instantly be the main man at City, up top.

But a move abroad may suit Kane more, if he does not want to take on his beloved Spurs. Karim Benzema continues to score at a rapid rate for Madrid but he is now 33. Barcelona sold Luis Suarez last summer.

There are options, more so than ever for Kane. But would he leave? Probably not, given he is enjoying life under Jose Mourinho – and that Daniel Levy will look for one of the biggest transfer fees in the modern game.
