CHRIS SUTTON: If Man City call, then Kane cannot miss that chance

CHRIS SUTTON: If Manchester City call, then Harry Kane cannot miss that chance… he is a world-class striker but his and Tottenham’s list of club honours doesn’t reflect that

  • Harry Kane has told Tottenham he wants to leave the club this summer 
  • Manchester City are one of the teams interested in signing him before Euro 2020
  • Kane has scored over 200 goals for Spurs but has yet to win a career trophy
  • The striker has been in the League Cup and Champions League final for Spurs 

Harry Kane turns 28 in July and if a club such as Manchester City come calling, he cannot waste that opportunity.

Kane loves Tottenham. Everyone knows that. But if ever there was a time for him to leave Spurs, it is this summer. I wrote a column two months ago explaining why I would question Kane’s mentality if he doesn’t want more.

When your career comes to an end, you enjoy the fact that you won the odd personal award. I’ve got my Premier League Golden Boot from 1998 sitting on a shelf at home. I’m sure Harry Kane’s from 2016 and 2017 are displayed somewhere pretty, too.

But that’s not where you store your best memories. 

When I look back now, I think of the trophies I shared with my team-mates. Like Blackburn clinching the Premier League title on the season’s final day at Anfield. Me and Alan Shearer, doused in champagne during a live TV interview moments earlier, holding that trophy up together. It was bliss.

Later I moved to Celtic and got my hands on more silverware than I could have ever imagined. That is what makes me most proud and that is what Kane must want, too.

He is a world-class striker but his list of club honours doesn’t reflect that. Instead he’s been a two-time League Cup runner-up and reached a Champions League final in 2019. That’s not enough for him.
