A report in the English media this weekend has revealed why Harry Kane is likely set to stay at Tottenham for the 2021/22 campaign.
Kane remains trophyless
Harry Kane is, of course, one of the best centre-forwards currently plying their trade in Europe’s top-five leagues.
The Spurs youth product has been a consistent threat in the Premier League for many years now.
And even though Tottenham are having a pretty dismal season on the whole, Kane has continued to shine.
In 22 Premier League outings this season, Kane has managed to score 13 goals, to go along with 11 assists.
Such fine form year upon year, of course, deserves to be rewarded with silverware.
At present, however, the 27-year-old is yet to secure a single trophy in his career, with just one Champions League final under his belt.
Spurs are set to face Manchester City in the League Cup final later this year, but it is hard to see Jose Mourinho’s side getting one over on the Sky Blues, who recently hammered them 3-0.
So, if Kane does intend to bag some silverware whilst still in his prime, a move away from north London may be required.
Kane to stay put?
The Englishman himself stated back in March of 2020 that, whilst he loves Spurs, he will be forced to consider an exit if he doesn’t feel the club are continuing to make progress:
“It’s one of those things, I couldn’t say yes, I couldn’t say no. I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs. But it’s one of those things – I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, then I’m not someone to just stay there for the sake of it.”
And since this statement, it is hard to label anything that the Lilywhites have done as ‘progress’.
So, Spurs’ fans may be somewhat concerned that their star man could jump ship in the summer.
However, as mentioned above, a report from the Telegraph has eased such fears, for now.
The Telegraph assure that:
‘Kane is increasingly expected to remain at Tottenham Hotspur for at least next season with a growing sense that Europe’s biggest clubs will have little money to spend in the Covid-hit transfer market.’
