Former Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia believes that it is the right time for Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur in search of satisfying his ambition for silverware amid rumoured interest from Bayern Munich.
Oliver Kahn, CEO of the Bundesliga giants was asked to comment on the Enland striker recently having lost their talisman Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona with the former goalkeeper admitting it would be a “dream” to bring Kane to the Allianz Arena (Sport Bild).
Garcia has suggested that Kane has a better chance of securing silverware at Bayern than in N17, despite Antonio Conte building a strong squad for the coming season. However, he has also hinted that Conte could be caught off-guard should Kane leave this summer.
So far, there have been no concrete links linking the striker with a move to Germany or elsewhere. However, last summer, Kane said in an interview that he wants to win trophies and was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City (The Athletic).
“I think it must be on the table,” Garcia told ESPN. “Harry Kane is mentioning last year and the year before that he might be looking for a different option, he wants to win trophies and challenge for every single competition.
“And he has been struggling. He always delivers, but I think the team lets him down, so it could be one of the options (joining Bayern).
“The moment Bayern has a big place up front, where a number nine could join, I think it’s a fantastic option for Harry Kane.
“Not just waiting for six months or a year, it could be the right moment to take the chance (now). I am not sure Conte is going to be ready to allow him to go now they are building a strong team.
“I don’t think it’s going to be enough for him (challenging). I think he wants to win trophies. He has been one of the best English strikers for many, many years. He wants silverware, it’s probably the moment that right now to make the move.”
Conte has already made six signings this summer. The Italian tactician is building a strong squad ahead of his first full season at the club and Spurs have emerged as strong contenders for the top four of the Premier League.
Harry Kane is the face of Conte’s project. He has established himself as one of the most prolific goal scorers in football and the Lillywhites will not be thinking about cashing in on him this summer. His contract runs until 2024 (TEAMtalk) and this season could be huge for him. Not only is the World Cup approaching but Spurs have a realistic chance of winning silverware.
The north London outfit still need to do a lot of work to close down the gap to Manchester City and Liverpool. However, another trophyless season could see Kane leave next summer.
Kane has made 385 appearances for Spurs and has found the net a remarkable 247 times across all competitions (Transfermarkt).
