Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has predicted that England captain Harry Kane will stay at Tottenham for one more season before leaving when his contract runs out in 2024.
Kane has been with the Lilywhites since the age of 11 after being released by Arsenal as a youngster. He has since proved all his doubters wrong, becoming Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer after scoring in the 1-0 win against Man City in February, surpassing the record set by the great Jimmy Greaves.
The England captain has been heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils this season with Erik Ten Hag in the market for a world-class number nine to help propel his side to the next level. Anthony Martial and Wout Weghorst are set to join Cristiano Ronaldo out of the Old Trafford exit.
What has Arsene Wenger said about Harry Kane leaving Spurs?
Wenger appeared on BeIN Sports earlier this week and spoke about his former club’s rival amid intense transfer speculation.
“If you are his agent, Harry Kane has one year to go. In one year, he is completely free, what do you tell him?” Wenger said.
“Give your club a last chance, and then you go. It’s not about money, but, in the end, it’s always about money.
“He will not go for less than £80m. You don’t find strikers of that quality.”
And Wenger’s advice seems to mirror the loyalty which Kane has shown to Tottenham so far as he continues to hunt down the all-time Premier League record goal tally set by Alan Shearer; a fellow ex-England captain who also gained a reputation for not winning the number of trophies his career warranted.
Nevertheless, expected to leave London for free at the end of next season, Manchester United could find themselves well placed to snap up the soon-to-be record-goalscorer, but will it be too late?
