Tottenham’s Harry Kane Dilemma Needs a Quick Resolution

When Harry Kane very publicly made it known that he wants out of Tottenham prior to Euro 2020 it felt like a done deal that he’d be gone and could even sign with another club before the start of the competition.

Now through two matches at the Euros, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy won’t budge and that’s a significant problem for Tottenham, who not only don’t have a manager ahead of next season but are likely losing value over Kane with each passing day.

Let’s call it what it is. Kane’s production this month has been subpar and whether that’s due to the long domestic season or simply him not meeting the standards that many of his England teammates are also struggling to keep up with this is becoming a major issue for his club side.

Kane is yet to score at the Euros this summer, and although England is unbeaten in its first two matches its a fair assessment that the team as a whole has underwhelmed on the pitch.

Levy reportedly values Kane at 150 million Euros and won’t move off that number despite a concrete bid from Manchester City of nearly 100 million Euros. 

Parting with a player of Kane’s value is always a struggle, especially when there’s so much other uncertainty surrounding the club and the England striker has been one of the few mainstays the organization has relied on for over a decade.

Kane’s calm demeanor and stellar goalscoring record would clearly be difficult to replace, but his value heading into this year’s Euros was likely never higher after once again finishing as the Premier League's top scorer.

Spurs are at a point where their fans are seeking any kind of short or long-term validation after being just three seasons removed from reaching the Champions League final. 

A huge player plus financial package for Kane should leave Tottenham with a more than fair return for the striker and with Spurs in a position where they need an influx of talent and cash to help cultivate developing players it feels like an opportunity for the club to make a game-changing move.

Losing the top striker in England will certainly be a blow and one that the fans won’t be pleased with, but the long-term viability of the club should be the primary goal at this stage for Spurs when they are likely behind the country’s top teams in terms of contending for a title.

The sooner a deal gets done the quicker Tottenham can establish its game plan moving forward, including selecting a manager and offering them the necessary tools to improve the squad moving forward.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are just four of the teams currently battling for titles on a regular basis and in order for Tottenham to find themselves in a similar position they must find consistency at manager.
