Tottenham could fund a £100million “overhaul” by selling Harry Kane this summer, according to Alex McLeish.
The former Scotland manager, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, admitted he thought the 27-year-old would have to leave if he is to win any silverware during his career.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that Kane is “hell bent” on engineering a summer move, preferably to another Premier League side.
It is understood Tottenham value their attacking talisman at £125million-plus.
As such, there are only a small number of clubs in world football that could afford to sign him.
McLeish suggested Kane would be looking to leave after another season without a trophy at Spurs.
However, he insisted the £100million-plus could go a long way in strengthening the squad.
McLeish told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge: “I hate to annoy and make the Spurs fans unhappy but I think he’d be thinking about looking someone else to get the trophy haul.
“Back in the day, I remember Spurs strikers playing for England and they never seemed to move.
“In the modern day, it’s much easier to leave nowadays if you were to kick the poor down or your agent does bend. You can leave at a drop of a hat.
“But of course Kane is going to be up near the £100million type of valuation.
“It looks as if Spurs need a wee bit of an overhaul. Maybe Kane has to go and leave for that reason.”
