Scotland legend Ally McCoist won’t be getting a Christmas card from Tottenham fans later this year.
The talkSPORT pundit believes Tottenham will be looking for a new manager and a centre-forward in the coming months.
Antonio Conte returns to the touchline on Wednesday after flying back to London following an extended rehabilitation period after undergoing emergency gallbladder surgery. He returns to growing uncertainty as Spurs suffered a major setback to their top four hopes after losing at Wolves on Saturday. On top of that, they crashed out of the FA Cup last week, which means it will be another season without a trophy for Harry Kane.
“If I’m Harry Kane, I’m probably thinking about going to the team that just lost 7-0,” McCoist told talkSPORT, referring to United’s shocking 7-0 defeat against Liverpool on Sunday.

Reports suggest that Tottenham are only willing to let Kane go in the summer if they recieve a bid worth at least £100 million. That’s a lot of money for a player in his 30s, who will have one year left on his contract when he reach the end of the season.
Bayern Munich have long been mooted as a potential destination for Kane — with the club losing star striker Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona last year. A move to the Bundesliga giants would guarantee trophies for the England captain and that is something he has yet to achieve in his career.
With Man City signing Erling Haaland a year ago, we know that they won’t be in the market for Kane, but Gary Neville recently made a point about the Tottenham striker having limited options in the Premier League.
That makes Manchester United the most likely place for Kane if he wishes to remain in the Premier League after leaving Tottenham.
