If Tottenham fail to make the top four then ‘Harry Kane should have a word with his agent about new employment’ as he would ‘walk into the starting line-ups of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Man City’, claims Graeme Souness
- Graeme Souness says Harry Kane should leave Spurs if they fail to make top four
- He also says Kane should call his agent if they fail to beat City in the Carabao Cup
- Souness says Tottenham are running out of time to deliver what Kane deserves
- The pundit believes Kane would walk into Barcelona and Real Madrid’s teams
Souness believes Kane’s ‘individual efforts have been world class’ and claims Tottenham are running out of ‘time to deliver collectively on what his contribution deserves’.
Graeme Souness says Harry Kane should leave Tottenham if they fail to make top four
Having scored 214 goals in 324 appearances for Spurs, Souness says Kane should consider ‘calling his agent’ if Tottenham fail to pick up any silverware this season as his individual efforts deserve more.
Souness told The Times: ‘If they fail to do so (reach top four) or if they fail to pick up silverware, ie beat Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final next month, then Kane should be having a word with his agent about new employment.
‘Even if they beat City, he might still want to think about leaving. He turns 28 in the summer, and time is running out for Spurs to deliver collectively on what his individual efforts deserve. And those individual efforts have been world class.
‘Unlike some in the punditry profession, great is not a term I confer lightly on footballers but Kane has the right to be called that.

‘Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester City — he would walk into the starting line-up of any of those teams. The window of opportunity to do so while in his prime is not big.’
Kane is currently ninth on the list of top goal scorers this season – having scored a total of 25 goals in 16 league appearances.
The England striker has also been tipped to surpass Alan Shearer’s record of 260 league goals as his tally currently equates to 159 goals.
As a result, Kane has been linked to several top-flight clubs this year. Both Manchester City and Manchester United have registered their interested in the Tottenham star.
However, Spurs have attached a staggering price tag of £150million to England’s best centre forward to avoid losing him at the end of the season.
That sum would make Kane – who is under contract at Spurs until 2024 – the third most expensive footballer of all time behind only the Paris Saint-Germain duo of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Mourinho will be eager to keep hold of Kane as Tottenham are reliant on him for results
It would be almost double the current record fee paid for an Englishman – the £80m Manchester United spent on Harry Maguire in 2019.
Mourinho is eager to keep hold of Kane as Tottenham are reliant on him for results. Kane’s 10-day absence with minor ankle injuries in January coincided with three successive defeats.
Spurs also crashed out of the FA Cup at Everton as Kane watched on from the bench.
However, since his return, Tottenham have recovered from their dismal form and stabilised themselves in the league.
Tottenham currently sit seventh in the Premier League table and will be back in action on Sunday against Arsenal.
