Remember early 2015?
Jose Mourinho’s lavish Chelsea team was sweeping aside teams until they ran into Tottenham Hotspur, more specifically into Harry Kane. That set the stage for a world class striker who only capitalized on the brilliant hat-trick he scored that night against Terry and co.
Well it would seem now that the menace of Harry Kane that has tormented every Premier League team could well be on his way to Stamford Bridge. The England captain is a Spurs loyalist. However, he what cannot be denied is the fact that he has far outgrown the club.
While Kane thrives to be the world’s best, Tottenham seek European qualification credentials. A player of such class needs a stage where he will competing against the best for trophies. Spurs not until long back were trying to do so. However, a torrid season which saw Pochettino sacked and Mourinho bring mediocrity to the club, could not sway Kane’s mind.
What was once a firm believe that he will never leave Spurs, even for the likes of Real Madrid, Kane has now said that he is no longer sure.
“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve, get better and become one of the top, top players. It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever, but it’s not a no either.”
“Next year would be the first chance for the gaffer to have a pre-season, and bed his values into the team. So we’ll see what happens. Of course I want to win trophies, and to do that sooner rather than later.”
This works perfectly for Chelsea who are set to get back into the Champions League, are building a team for the future to win trophies and seem set to splash the cash this season to sign the best.
The Blues indeed need a finisher to convert the 100s of chances they create at the moment and the value of a goal scorer cannot be underestimated.
