Tottenham are apparently fearful that Harry Kane could push for a summer exit from the club.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have suffered a difficult start to the new season and Tuesday night’s 7-2 Champions League humbling at the hands of Bayern Munich is said to have caused further unrest within the squad.
Several of the club’s stars face uncertain futures, with the likes of Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen being tipped with exits having entered the final year of their contracts in North London.
Earlier this week, in the wake of their capitulation against Bayern, Rio Ferdinand suggested Kane should consider leaving the club in search of trophies, and now, according to the Times, the North London outfit are now fearful that the England captain could do just that.
Kane turns 27 in July and is yet to win a single piece of silverware in his career, and Spurs will hope they can arrest their decline quickly with the forward’s patience reportedly running out.
Spurs are yet to win a major trophy since Pochettino’s arrival in 2014, their last trophy coming in 2008, and with the Argentine potentially facing a major rebuilding job, there are also doubts over his long-term future at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, with Manchester United and Real Madrid having been long-term admirers.
