Harry Kane would be a perfect signing for Manchester City this summer, with the Tottenham forward ‘ticking all the boxes’ that Pep Guardiola is looking for in the leader.
That’s according to talkSPORT host Tony Cascarino, who believes there could be a clause in the England captain’s contract at Tottenham that could allow him to leave the club if he doesn’t win trophies.
Kane’s future is in the spotlight with Spurs set to end another season with no silverware.
Now 27, the striker is entering the prime of his career and many expect him to decide to leave his childhood club as soon as he has yet to lift. major silverware in his career.
Kane has seen a host of former teammates come and go and win trophies after leaving White Hart Lane, including Kyle Walker at Man City and even Christian Eriksen, who overcame his tough start at Inter Milan to help the club Italian to beat Juventus in Serie A title this season.
All eyes are on Kane ahead of the summer transfer window, amid reports of interest from Manchester United and Man City, as well as interest from abroad.
But while United have been heavily linked with a move for the England skipper, Cascarino says he would be a perfect fit for the Etihad under Guardiola, saying he would do anything Sergio Aguero could not provide for the Spain boss.
Speaking on Saturday’s Weekend Sports Breakfast show, Cascarino said: “For Manchester City this summer it’s who becomes available, can you buy it and will it fit your way? to play …
“Now I think only a Harry Kane ticks all of those boxes.
“He will do the things Pep wanted from Aguero, be a much better defender for the team, take positions, make things awkward but then be available in the box and have an incredible pace of work.
“I don’t see too many like that.
“Erling Haaland is apparently going to be way overpriced and someone might say Kane will be too, but I’m not so sure because he’s 27, almost 28.
Will Tottenham let him go? That’s the question many are asking and the majority of Spurs fans fear before the summer window opens.
Cascarino can see him go, however, claiming there could be a clause in his deal that would allow him to leave the club if they don’t allow him to win a trophy.
“Harry might upset a few at Spurs,” the host added.
“I just can’t believe his contract at Tottenham doesn’t have some sort of deal for him which is fine with him if it fails.
“I don’t think he would have signed his contract and just said, ‘You can charge whatever you want for me’. I can’t imagine that would have happened.
