Tottenham should sell Harry Kane, according to England legend Wayne Rooney, because he “deserves to be at a higher level.”
Despite publicly wanting a move to Manchester City in the summer, Kane has remained at Spurs.
According to England veteran Sir Geoff Hurst, Tottenham should sell Harry Kane in the January transfer window so the team can “go on and progress.” Kane was refused a move to Manchester City this summer, but Hurst believes he “deserves” to play in the Champions League on a regular basis.
Kane made it clear at the outset of the summer that he was dissatisfied at Spurs and that he wanted to go for a new challenge with City.
Despite the fact that he was under contract until June 2024, the striker thought he had a gentleman’s agreement with chairman Daniel Levy to pursue a transfer.
However, Levy dismissed that claim and turned down City’s offers for Kane, who had first refused to attend training in an attempt to push Spurs’ hand.
Kane eventually relented and confirmed his commitment to Tottenham, and he already has six goals in ten outings this season.
But the ceasefire between the club and their best player, 1966 World Cup winner Hurst, remains shaky. Hurst believes Spurs would be better off cashing in at the next available moment.
On talkSPORT, he added, “To be honest with you, I get along with the Spurs guys; we were great mates years ago.”
“The one thing I’d say about Tottenham’s position is that they should let Harry Kane go.”
“Keeping a player who wants to progress and who, perhaps, deserves a chance to play in the Champions League.
“Keeping him there with resistance isn’t always healthy for the player, and it’s not always good for the team.”
“In my opinion, they should let him go.
“Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not doing Spurs or the club any harm.” They’re a tremendous club, and I’ve known many of the players for many years.
“This Spurs-West Ham rivalry has never been one of my favorites. That was never something I agreed to.
“I’m stating it as a neutral observer of the player and the club.”
“The club is fantastic. They have a fantastic playing surface. He’s a wonderful player, but I believe it’s time for him to progress. This is just my humble opinion on the subject.” Kane is yet to score in the Premier League this season, but he did score a hat-trick in the Europa League against Mura. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
