Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur has insisted that he desires to get on the level of Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus and Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona who have won 5 and 6 Ballon d’Or respectively.
Kane insisted that his ultimate goal is to play in the biggest games in football and score over 60 goals every season. He also insisted that he does not want to retire from football with regrets.
Harry Kane’s revelations went a long way to confirm the speculation that he has told Tottenham Hotspur that he wants to leave the club this summer since he couldn’t win titles at the club.
The 27-year-old England international has been at Tottenham all his life. Despite his enormous potentials, he has not been able to win any major title at the North London club.
Due to his inability to win titles at Tottenham, most pundits and critics of the club want him to leave Spurs since his brilliance at the club has proven to be in futility.
Recall that Harry Kane has won two Premier League top scorer awards. This season, he is on the verge of being the league’s top scorer and top assist provider as he has scored 22 league goals and provided 13 assists in 34 games.
Despite such a performance, Tottenham Hotspur could not win any title. It got so bad that they could not qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League campaign.
“I don’t want to come to the end of my career and have any regrets. I want to be the best I can be”, Harry Kane said in an exclusive interview on Gary Neville’s The Overlap YouTube channel.
“I never said I’d stay at Spurs for the rest of my career and I’ve never said I’d leave Spurs. People might say, ‘he’s desperate for trophies, he needs trophies’, but I feel like I’ve still got almost another career to play.
“I’ve got seven, eight years, kind of what I’ve already had in the Premier League. So I’m not rushing anything, I’m not desperate to do anything…
“I’ve still got so much more to give. I can produce better numbers than I’m producing at the moment.
“I’m not afraid to say, ‘I want to be the best. I want to try and get on the level Ronaldo and Messi got to. That’s my ultimate goal – to be winning trophies season in, season out, scoring 50, 60, 70 goals season in, season out.
“The pressure from myself is always bigger than anything anyone else can put on me.”
As at the time of publishing this report, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea had reportedly shown interest in the center-forward who still has until June 2024 before his contract with Tottenham Hotspur expires.
According to transfermarkt, Harry Kane who is the captain of Tottenham Hotspur and England national team is currently worth €120 million in the transfer market.
