Harry Kane - Stay or Go?

There's a lot of talk of Harry Kane having a £150m price tag now, and quite frankly I think its ridiculous, but then again, that's Daniel Levy in the transfer market.

In the current market, I would say Harry Kane is a £75m player, a fair price for someone who always manages to bang in the goals. He might come at a bit of a premium as all top English players do for the Premier League due to homegrown player status.

If you have £150m burning a hole in your pocket, I don't think you would sign Harry Kane. I think the only people that would say that are Tottenham fans.

You'd be better spend that money on Erling Haaland. Even if you try and buy him this summer you'd probably get him for £100m, or you could wait until next year and trigger his release clause at the reported price of £63m. An absolute steal compared to Kane and has 7 more years on his side than the Englishman.

However, from Harry Kane's point of view its a difficult decision. Does he stick with the Tottenham project and Jose Mourinho, a proven winner? Or does he jump ship to Man City to win titles in England or PSG to team back up with Pochettino and get guaranteed titles in France? Imagine being part of that front line of Kane, Mbappe and Neymar, mouthwatering to say the least.

He'd be guaranteed trophies with either move, and I really believe he is running out of time if he wants to be remembered as one of the greatest strikers. He needs league titles, maybe even European trophies too. He isn't going to get that with Tottenham anytime soon. They're always a bit 'Spurs-y', they nearly get there, best summed up by the time the title was theirs for the taking, every other big team was dropping points left right and centre so Leicester actually won the title, but in that 2 horse race, Tottenham finished 3rd. There is talk of Manchester United trying to sign him, but I don't believe that is as much of a step up as Harry Kane needs to get those medals in his cabinet. Manchester United are rebuilding and Kane can't hang around.

There's a great sense of loyalty to Tottenham from Kane, they sing "he's one of our own", even though he originally played for Arsenal youth teams, it just seems to be forgotten about because he's done so well for Tottenham!

I admire his loyalty, its very hard to come by in the current era of football, players will go wherever their agent tells them to, because the agent is earning monumental amounts of money from brokering the deal. I just don't know if his loyalty is what's going to see him miss out on something to show for his undeniable quality and ability, in winners medals rather than golden boots.
