Harry Kane will look to leave Tottenham Hotspur if Heung-min Son secures a blockbuster move to Bayern Munich, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England and Leeds United defender delivered his verdict after the South Korea international reached a contract stalemate with Spurs.
He had been ready to put pen-to-paper over a blockbuster £200,000-a-week five-year deal before Christmas but talks have stalled since.
Kane recently revealed he will reassess his future after this summer’s European Championships.
Asked whether seeing Son potentially leave north London would influence Kane, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “Definitely.
“Harry Kane wants to win things. People go on about legacy and it might be split between scoring goals, having big contracts but given the chance, he’d want to win things.
“He’d want to win things at Spurs and score goals in a winning team.
“If you start to lose some of your best players that often provide the best chances for you, you’re going to start looking at and think ‘Hang on a minute, this maybe doesn’t work for me and as much as I love the football club, if players are leaving and we’re not bringing in players of equal quality or better then I’m going to suffer and if I suffer my family suffer and everything. Eventually, I need to be out of here.’
“Players are always asking ‘Who are we signing? Who are we bringing in?’ Because ultimately it makes them better.”
Kane and Son have blossomed into one of the most prolific forward partnerships the Premier League has ever seen.
This season they have combined for 14 goals – a new league record for an individual campaign.
