Wayne Rooney believes Harry Kane may look to quit Tottenham if they do not win a trophy in the next two years.
Everton striker Rooney was the special guest on Sky’s Monday Night Football, the day after Kane had joined him in the Premier League ‘100 club’ and he was full of praise for the prolific Spurs hitman.
Rooney described his former England team-mate as the best forward in Europe but feels Mauricio Pochettino will struggle to keep Kane happy if Spurs do not start winning silverware.
“At the moment, he is probably the best striker in Europe,” Rooney told MNF.
“He can go where he wants to, he’s that good. He is like a young Alan Shearer. He scores all different types of goals.
“The problem that Tottenham are going to have is that his motivation is goals, but his motivation is going to change from goals to trophies,
“And if Tottenham don’t win trophies in the next year, maybe two, he is going to want to move elsewhere to win trophies.
“That is a decision he is going to have to make in the next year or two, but Tottenham have also got to make a decision – bring more players in and have a real push to win the Premier League.”

Rooney also believes that Kane can already be considered a great player, even though he has never won a major team honour.
However, he thinks the 24-year-old would be up there with the top players in world football if he was scoring goals for a title-winning team.
“The goals are great, and they take you to a certain level,” Rooney added.
“But the top players are remembered for the trophies they have won. The trophies take you on to that next level.
“I think if Harry Kane was in Man City’s team and was going to win the Premier League this season, people would be talking about Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Harry Kane.”
