Rio Ferdinand believes that Tottenham’s Harry Kane may have given an indication that he could leave the club and feels he is desperate to win silverware.
The centre-forward has scored 181 goals in 278 senior appearances for Spurs since coming through their youth academy and is already in the bracket of a club legend, despite not winning any trophies with them.
The 26-year-old recently raised some eyebrows with his comments about Spurs, as he possibly hinted he could exit if the team don’t progress.
“I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs but I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there for the sake of it,” he said on Instagram, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
Ferdinand believes that the England captain may be on the move in the next transfer window and put forward some possible destinations, including his former club Manchester United.
Goal has reported that Kane would consider a move to Old Trafford to join Manchester United, as he is reluctant to wait on a squad overhaul at Spurs.
“Harry has always been coy and held back but he’s dropped a couple of bombs. He’s been waiting for the dream at Spurs to materialise but it hasn’t happened. He’s frustrated,” Ferdinand said on his Instagram story, as relayed by his Youtube account.
“Do you think Harry would be happy, fulfilled and satisfied if he scores goals, break records but with no trophies at the end of his career? No. He will be upset and devastated. I think that statement means Harry is off, he wants to win trophies and that will alert clubs.
“I know Man United will be in for him because that type of player is perfect for them. I’m sure Juventus will be in and will Real Madrid come in? He will go for massive dough, at least £130m in today’s market.”
Kane has got the ability to lead any frontline in world football, as he’s a centre-forward that can score all types of goals and has been so consistent for a number of years.
It’s pivotal that Spurs boss Mourinho keeps him at the club for the long-term and surely any team that he builds has to be centred around the talisman in attack, who has ripped apart Premier League defences for years.
But on the flip side Manchester United could finally start to think about challenging towards the top end again if they manage to bring in a striker of Kane’s calibre, who looks an ideal fit for them on paper.
