Harry Kane Tottenham TEAMtalk

Tottenham could lose Harry Kane this summer if they miss out on a place in next season’s Champions League, it is being reported. 

Kane’s future has been a topic of conversation for some time. He has previously stated that he will leave the club if he feels it is right. And despite rising through the ranks at Spurs to become their captain, he insists he won’t stay for the sake of it.

A player with such an impressive goal record has no shortage of interest either. In England, both Manchester clubs are said to be keen. Links with City have only increased since Sergio Aguero announced he will be leaving.

There is also interest from Spain, where Real Madrid and Barcelona are showing interest.

No decision has been made as of yet, but he recently admitted he will review his situation of the EUROs.

But while one pundit has backed Kane to stay loyal to Tottenham, a fresh report has cast more doubt over where he will be next term.

Champions League crucial for Kane

According to a report from the Athletic (via Football365), whether Tottenham finish in the top four or not will be a factor in his decision.

As things stand, Spurs are three points behind fourth placed West Ham. With eight games to go, there is still time to catch them too.

But given their inconsistency this year and competition from the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, who are also top four four hopefuls, there is no guarantee things will go their way.

And should they miss out, that could spell the end of his time in north London. That’s because he is ‘running out of patience’ with their lack of progress, claims the report. 

It adds: ‘Frustrated by a lack of trophies and concerned by the threat of a second successive season without Champions League football, Kane is prepared to tell the Tottenham hierarchy he wants a new challenge.

‘At this stage, Manchester City and Manchester United are the clubs most likely to offer him that possibility. But a move abroad cannot be discounted. Getting out of Spurs though will not be easy or perhaps at all possible.’

Kane has undoubtedly become one of the world’s best striker with Spurs. Unfortunately, though, he only has individual honours to show for it.

At 28, he has featured in just two finals. The first of those ended in defeat to Chelsea in the 2015 Carabao Cup. The second saw Spurs beaten by Liverpool in the 2019 Champions League decider.

He will have a second bite at the League Cup when Tottenham face Man City in the final later this month. But he may soon opt to move on and challenge for major honours elsewhere.
