Roy Keane says Jose Mourinho may need to make Harry Kane transfer concession

Roy Keane has warned Tottenham that they may have to ‘take the money’ when it comes to Harry Kane’s future.

The former Manchester United skipper claimed that Kane will not fulfill his dreams of winning top prizes while he remains at Spurs and should leave if he truly is ambitious.

Watching Kane score his 33rd England goal as the Three Lions beat Albania 2-0, Keane says the 27-year-old will be questioning how long he wants to remain at his club.

“He’s a professional,” the Irishman told ITV. “If you’re a top player you want to win trophies.

“It’s a big few months coming up for Tottenham, the League Cup final, can they get in the top four? Huge question marks.

“Will that influence him? He’s obviously under contract, Tottenham will have a lot to say about it.

“But if you’re in his shoes and it comes to the summer, I think the guy has to move on to really win the big prizes. He’s not going to do it at Tottenham.”

Kane, who has been at Spurs since childhood and scored 215 times for the club, has a contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until 2024.

Figures of around £150million have been quoted to pry him away from the north London side, which will put off many clubs given the current financial climate in the game.

However, Keane believes if Kane wants to move, Tottenham will find it difficult to keep him.

“He wouldn’t be the first player to sign a contract and then want to leave a year or so later,” he added.

“Mourinho might have to say ‘’he keeps making these noises, let’s take the money and move on’.”

Kane himself has cast doubt on his Tottenham future by refusing to deny he would leave the club to win trophies and won’t be making a decision about his future until after the Euros.

“I think that’s a hard question to answer right now,” he said ahead of the Albania match.

“It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros.

“To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.”
