Could Harry Kane leave Tottenham Hotspur?

Kevin Kilbane has suggested on Boylesports.com that Tottenham Hotspur could sell Harry Kane.

The former Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion star has pointed that Spurs have a history of selling their best players, such as Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

The 40-year-old has said that it would not surprise him if England international striker Kane moves on.

“Now I’d love Harry Kane to stay at Tottenham and guide them towards the Premier League title,” Kilbane wrote on Boylesports.com. “I’d love him to stay and give the Champions League a good run too.

“But we all know the way that football is and also the way that Tottenham have done their business in years gone by. If a huge offer comes in for their best players they tend to sell.

“Whether that happens or not remains to be seen but it wouldn’t surprise me to see Kane move on.

“If we look at the evidence of recent years, Dimitar Berbatov left for Manchester United, while Gareth Bale and Luka Modric both went to Real Madrid.

“Tottenham have that history of selling players when they’re at the peak of their game and that’s where Harry Kane finds himself.”

Kane is one of the best strikers in the world and has been in stunning form for Tottenham so far this season.

There is an argument to be made that the 24-year-old is even the best striker in the Premier League at the moment.

While it is almost certain that Spurs will not sell Kane in the January transfer window, could the North London club be tempted to cash in on him next summer?

Probably not. After all, Tottenham will play at the new and reconstructed White Hart Lane next season, and they will not want to lose any of their best players.
