Graeme Souness has revealed his concern that one of Europe’s elite clubs will make a mega bid for Harry Kane.
The Tottenham striker is the Premier League’s top scorer with 24 goals this season to follow up his brilliant breakthrough campaign in 2014-15.
Kane, 22, has also established himself as one of England’s key men going into Europe 2016 after showing he can replicate his domestic form on the international stage.
The Spurs talisman was unable to add to his goal tally in Monday’s 1-1 draw against West Brom in what was a crushing blow to his team’s title hopes.
Kane hit the post early on but it was a frustrating evening as Spurs failed to secure the three points they needed to keep the pressure on leaders Leicester.
Speaking to Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football programme before the match, Souness spoke of Kane’s significance to Tottenham.
“He’s their main man and will be their main man for the next 10 years, if they can hold on to him,” the Liverpool legend said.
“The big danger with someone like him who is scoring this amount of goals is the really big guys out there, the two in Spain and maybe Bayern Munich, certainly Manchester United would love him next year, the big danger for Tottenham is if they can hold on to him.”
Kane signed a new Spurs contract last year but his wages pale in comparison with Europe’s elite players and the Londoners are likely to have to up his salary again in line with his status as one of the world’s emerging stars.
Manchester United were linked with a £45million move last summer and there has been reported interest from most of the Champions League big hitters.
In other Tottenham news, one of the team’s key players could be sidelined for the rest of the season.
