    doesn't help the value of their investment much. In fact, selling Kane would directly hit the value of the club, no matter how much money you got for him.

    I take your point but there again, I wouldn't put it past Ronaldo.

    Heartily sick that every segment on Harry Kane on TalkSport has the presenter or co-presenter musing as to whether Kane will go to Spain 'if Spurs don't win anything in the next couple of seasons.'

    Tbf, when asked this morning Harry Redknapp did say that he is the kind of lad who feels comfortable at Spurs so there isn't any guarantee that he will want to leave.

    This is sadly true, the thing is though, Kane is a local boy, supports Spurs etc.

    People compare this to Bale but Bale was never attached to the club, he wasn't going to be sticking around it was wishful thinking at best, with Harry I genuinely believe he is above the money and above the "celebrity" of Madrid, he seems a real genuine lad.

    Maybe the truth is, I am deluding myself into thinking that and like you say, once a club like Madrid or Barca come knocking it's only a matter of time, the thing is though, if a player like Kane who loves the club, was born local and came up through the ranks can have their head turned then anybody can quite frankly.

    If it happens it happens, nothing we can do about it I suppose but I really will be done with football in general after that, Kane is a once in a lifetime type of player imo.

    People think that players wanting to leave to join bigger clubs is a new thing. Bobby Moore wanted to leave west ham and join spurs but was blocked. The only difference now is the bosman ruling and the fact that the bigger clubs are so much bigger these days.

    Hope we start winning trophies and he spends the rest of his career with us though.

    Make no mistakes about it, he'll go to Madrid or Barca if he hasn't won anything with us in 5 or so years. You couldn't blame him if he did too, we have to keep getting better every year to be competitive.

    It's all well and good being a local lad, but at the end of the day Kane is a highly ambitious player and will only stick around if we're competing for trophies.
    As long as we keep improving year after year though as we are now, I can't see him leaving anytime soon.

    To be fair Modric and Bale went to Madrid as they wanted to win cups, leagues and the champions league and Madrid were in a position to do that - Spurs weren't. Harry will have ambitions and unless we continue to improve at a fast rate then he will know soon enough if we have the ability to match his ambitions. Its not a modern football issue. Greaves went to Milan, Keegan to Hamburg, Charles and Rush went to Juve, Gazza to Lazio, Platt to Bari, Souness and Francis to Sampdoria, Hughes and Lineker to Barca, Owen, Woodgate, Becks, McManaman to Madrid, Hoddle to Monaco and Waddle to Marseille. Players have always gone to where they will get paid or as in the cases for all the above, all went to clubs to win stuff. Harry is entitled to do the same if he cant do it here. I'd rather he went to Madrid than Manchester that is for sure!

    Last time we won a trophy we lost our strikeforce. Simply winning trophies is not enough to keep away the likes of Real and Barcelona.

    We have direct quotes regarding it. Unless you know Kane personally and very close, you have no reason to say he is lying.

    Believing direct quotes is not in anyway similar to your outlandish analogy.

    We're so lucky that Kane is a grounded lad, not flashy at all. With all these articles going round about how good he is, I'd expect a more egotistical player to have his head turned by it all. Not Harry though

    Your post I quoted was bemoaning people who were using 'mental gymnastics' to convince themselves he was staying in the period before that quote when he'd never said anything like that previously. In fact, prior to what he said yesterday he'd regularly said he wanted to stay at Sours for the rest of his career. How does it take mental gymnastics to take him at his word when he says that? You're actually contradicting yourself by implying that we should take this hesitation as gospel yet dismiss his previous statements as appeasement of the fans.

    And it's really not logical thinking. You're forming conclusions based entirely on supposition and future events that haven't happened. It's not a foregone conclusion as you're claiming; there are far too many variables to come.

    Harry scores at Wembley, must have felt good. Crap game though, nothing new.

    Harry is far too good for England, know one else is even near his wave length, can be frustrating to watch. Makes you lucky to think Spurs have great players like Eriksen to link with him.
