Harry Kane has aired his thoughts on Tottenham Hotspur’s run of form this season amid transfer interest from Manchester United. The striker’s frustrations are coming through as the club prepare to round off their 15th season in a row without silverware.
Spurs were briefly in contention for a top four finish but inconsistent results have knocked them down the Premier League table. For Kane, who is yet to win a single trophy in his career, these are difficult times, but Man United could make the most of the Englishman’s situation and pounce during the summer.
Kane has just one year left on his current contract with Spurs, and Erik ten Hag has identified him as a ‘number one priority and top target’ this summer, according to Football Insider. Daniel Levy has been reluctant to release his grasp on the striker and is demanding between £80 million and £100 million from any potential buyers.
However, his hand may be forced if Kane does not sign a new deal, or he runs a huge risk of losing their star player for free next year. Based on his frustrations with Spurs’ form, and the matter of him turning 30 in July, there’s big potential for a blockbuster move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
“It’s been a difficult season,” Kane told Sky Sports. “Probably the last couple of years, the last two or three, we haven’t been where we want to be as a club, so ultimately, there’s some internal stuff we need to talk about.
“We need to discuss some of the standards around the team and the training ground, which we need to get back to. We had [standards] those in place when Mauricio Pochettino was here, so internally we need to do that.”
