Glenn Hoddle wouldn’t begrudge Harry Kane if he left Tottenham for trophies

Glenn Hoddle thinks this summer could be the time for Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur.

That is music to the ears of many Manchester United fans but not all.

Others want Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, though if you were to ask me in the summer, I reckon I’d point towards England’s new all-time record scorer.

Reports suggest Kane is wanted by United manager Erik ten Hag, who is believed to be a huge admirer, and it feels like a prolific goalscorer is what we need to become genuine title contenders.

Kane has some questions to ask himself between now and the end of the season. Does he want to be remembered as a one club man, like Matt Le Tissier, or does he want to finally win some trophies? After all, Robin van Persie made the move from Arsenal to United and won the Premier League.

Speaking to Betfair, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News, Hoddle said: “Trophies are the icing on the cake for footballers. There are players out there who have won silverware because they were half decent players playing in a team that won things.

“You can’t say those players are better than Harry Kane so I don’t think we should get too carried away with Harry not winning trophies. Harry has got the best out of his career and is continuing to do so – winning a trophy would just be the icing on the cake. We don’t know if he’ll get a move at 34-years-old and win his first trophy, that remains to be seen.

“I’d love to see him win one at Tottenham but if he had to move then nobody would begrudge him. It wouldn’t surprise me if he thought he had to move and if the opportunity to do so is there, which it will be, then it also wouldn’t surprise me to see him leave.”
