Paul Robinson has claimed the “saving grace” for Tottenham amid Harry Kane’s exit bombshell is he has three years left on his contract.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one questioned whether Daniel Levy would sell in the current market with Kane still under contract in north London until the summer of 2024.
This site revealed on Thursday that the England captain is “hell bent” on joining one of the Premier League giants in the next transfer window.
Kane is keen to remain in England as he is desperate to beat Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goalscoring record.
Robinson is worried about how his former club would cope with the loss of their talismanic striker.
“Harry Kane leaving would really upset the balance of the squad,” he told Football Insider. “I worry what he would leave behind.
“There has always been an argument that if Spurs can get top four and win a cup Kane would stay but…
“Given the stage of his age career he is at and his age, he is not going to have too many more opportunities to move to one of the top Premier League sides. There is a lot of talk about Manchester City and Manchester United and let’s be honest, he is not going to have a shortage of takers this summer.
“Would Spurs sell in the current market? I think his value would have been effected by the financial climate.
“No Spurs fan would begrudge Kane if he left. He has a huge decision to make.
“I do worry that he will not be around much longer. The saving grace is that he still has three years left on his contract so the club are under no pressure to sell in that sense.”
