Merson Believes Harry Kane Should Consider Spurs Exit This Summer

Merson Believes Harry Kane Should Consider Spurs Exit This Summer
By Gary Connaughton

Harry Kane has been unbelievable for Spurs, but it's fair to say the club are as far away as ever from competing for top honours. They have lost ground on the best teams in the Premier League, something that looks unlikely to change in the short-term.

Jose Mourinho's style is not one employed by title winning teams, and while the England captain's numbers have been excellent this season, it has not translated to a high level of team success.

It leads to the question, should he consider leaving the club?

Speaking to Sky Sports, Paul Merson said that Spurs' current situation should make Kane consider his future in North London.

I thought after the game on Saturday: 'I wonder how Harry Kane feels when he gets home?'

He's going to be 28 in the summer - his next three years will be his best years. He's got a big thing to weigh up now. I don't think he gets near Alan Shearer's record (260 Premier League goals to Kane's 156) at Tottenham playing this way. Far from it.

I said at the start of the season he'll have a big decision...

I think owners of clubs have football into a top-four culture - they are not fussed if they don't win anything, as long as they finish in the top four. That's a trophy...

But it's difficult. You have to think of your family; he has a wife and two kids, he might be happy as Larry where he is. It's all well and good us saying he should leave, but he may be loving his football at Spurs. We don't know.

If he were to leave Spurs, he certainly wouldn't come cheap. Daniel Levy would no doubt seek a huge fee for the player, but Merson believes there would be no shortage of interested parties.

He feels that Manchester United should make a move for the player, while Manchester City would also be an option.

If I'm Man Utd, I'm doing all I can to buy Kane. I know Erling Haaland is on a lot of radars, but there should be only one person on Man Utd's radar: Harry Kane.

If they want to close the gap to Man City, they need someone to come to that club and score goals the minute he walks into that club, like Harry Kane can...

Man Utd need to win the league now, not in five or six years' time. Don't get me wrong, Haaland is an unbelievable prospect. But for me it's a no brainer - I'd want to win the league now!

I wouldn't be surprised if Man City went for him, but that depends on how they do in the Champions League. The only thing that's going to stop them winning the competition is missed chances. If it is down to missed chances, I know who I want in my team next year: Harry Kane.
