Harry Kane would be a perfect signing for Manchester City this summer, with the Tottenham striker ‘ticking all the boxes’ Pep Guardiola is looking for in the frontman.
That’s according to talkSPORT host Tony Cascarino, who believes there could be a clause in the England captain’s Tottenham contract that may allow him to leave the club if they fail to win trophies.
Kane’s future is under the spotlight against with Spurs set to end yet another season without silverware.
Now 27, the striker is entering the prime of his career and many are expecting him to decide to quit his boyhood club soon as he is still yet to lift any major silverware in his career.
Kane has seen a host of former teammates come and go and win trophies after leaving White Hart Lane, including Kyle Walker at Man City and even Christian Eriksen, who overcome his difficult start at Inter Milan to help the Italian club beat Juventus to the Serie A title this season.
All eyes are on Kane ahead of the summer transfer window, amid reports of interest from Manchester United and Man City, as well as interest from abroad.
But while United have been strongly linked with a move for the England skipper, Cascarino says he’d be a perfect fit at the Etihad under Guardiola, saying he’d do all the things Sergio Aguero couldn’t provide the Spanish boss.
Speaking on Saturday’s Weekend Sports Breakfast show, Cascarino said: “For Manchester City this summer, it’s who becomes available, can you buy him and will he fit into the way you play…
“Now, I think only a Harry Kane ticks all of those boxes.
“He will do things Pep wanted from Aguero, to be a much better defending player for the team, to get in positions, make it awkward but then be available in the box and have incredible work rate.
“I don’t see too many like that.
“Erling Haaland is seemingly just going to be way too expensive and someone might say Kane is going to be as well, but I’m not so sure because he’s 27, nearly 28.”
Will Tottenham let him leave? That’s the question many are asking and the majority of Spurs fans are fearing before the summer window opens.
Cascarino can see him leaving, though, claiming there could be a clause in his deal that would allow him to leave the club if they failed to provide him with a trophy win.
“Harry might upset a few at Spurs,” added the host.
“I just can’t believe his contract at Tottenham doesnt have some sort of deal in it for him, that suits him if they fail.
“I don’t believe he would have signed his contract and just said, ‘you can charge what you like for me’. I can’t imagine that would have happened.”
