Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has been urged to leave the club in order to win trophies by Roy Keane and former Spurs midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has agreed with Keane’s assessment. Kane was recently asked about speculation over his future and the England captain said he would wait until after the Euros to make a decision.
He said: “To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.
“I always like to be focused on one goal and one job and that’s to finish strong with Spurs, win these qualifiers with England and hopefully go on and have a great Euros.
“Look, I try to stay out of that speculation as much as possible. I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.”

He said: “If you are a top player you want to win the big trophies.
“There’s a big few months coming up for Tottenham – the League Cup final and can they get into the top four? That’s a huge question mark, will it influence him?
“He’s under contract and Tottenham will have a lot to say about it. But if you are in his shoes this summer, l think he has to move to win the big prizes.
“He’s not going to do it at Tottenham.”

Now, former Spurs star Van der Vaart has agreed with Keane’s assessment, naming Manchester United as a potential destination.
Speaking to Viggo Sport, Van der Vaart said: “He [Keane] is right, although, of course, he is the man at Tottenham.
“It may sound crazy, but you would almost say go to Manchester United or something, stay in England. Usually, it’s not such a success when an English player goes to Madrid.
“For Tottenham, he is a guarantee for goals, and he earns a fortune there too, so he doesn’t have to leave for that.”
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho was recently asked about Kane’s future and replied: “I cannot play that game.
“I have to focus on what he is for us.
“Of course I’m always pleased with my players when they go to international games but I cannot play that game.
“I can only focus on what he does for us and the effort he put in for us at Villa, the effort he put in for England, and the match at Newcastle and whether playing well or not, he will be there for the team.”
