Harry Kane Puts Himself Up For Sale

Tottenham Hotspur and England captain Harry Kane has put himself up for sale after reiterating his desire to win trophies following Spurs’s Carabao Cup final defeat.

Kane, who at 27 is in the peak of his career, has yet to win a trophy at Spurs, with the loss to Manchester City his third in a final.

Kane was interviewed by Sky Sports after being named as the Premier League player of the year at the London Football Awards. He is the competition’s top goalscorer with 21 and leading assist-maker with 13.

“Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements,” he said. “When I look back at the end of my career, these are the things I will go over and take in more but the goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. I want to be winning the biggest prizes there is to offer and we are not quite doing that.

“It is bittersweet, I would rather be winning team trophies and this one but it is what it is. I am proud to win it, it means it’s been a good season on the pitch. So I have got to try and continue what I am doing.”

Kane’s current contract runs until 2024, which will make it be extremely difficult for any club to pry Kane from Spurs this summer. Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy I am sure would be looking for a transfer fee in excess of £150m to sign his talisman, and would anyone be able to afford that is this post-coronavirus era?

Spurs host Sheffield United on Sunday and, with five league games to play, they are five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

“It has been a disappointing season, if I am totally honest,” Kane said. “We have had so many opportunities and been in so many games where we have been ahead or been in a good position going into the last 15 minutes and we haven’t quite got over the line for one reason or another.

“When we look back, we were in a great position come November and that [bad] spell over December and January really put a halt to what we were trying to achieve. We have got loads to improve on. The thing now is to try and finish strong, try and win the last five games, hopefully try and make the Champions League spot.

“It has been disappointing and as players we have to take responsibility and when we go away in the summer really focus on what we can improve on.”

Do you think that Spurs will sell Harry Kane this summer?
