England national team captain Harry Kane is one of the finest strikers in the world and there is no club that would not want to have such a clinical finisher in its fold.
So far, the 26-year-old striker has spent most of his professional career in Tottenham Hotspur. He joined the club as a youth player and has gone on to become the club’s third-highest goalscorer in history.
When Harry Kane had the opportunity to feature for Tottenham in his first full season, he scored 31 goals in all competitions, and became the Premier League second-highest goalscorer, winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
He ended the 2016–17 season as the league’s top goalscorer and helped Tottenham finish 2nd on the league table, winning the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award.
So far, the 2017–18 season was Kane’s best season as he ended it with 41 goals in 48 games. In total, the England International has scored at least 136 goals in 198 appearances for the club.
There is no coach in the world that will easily let go such a player, not even the daring Jose Mourinho who has been in charge of Tottenham since late 2019.
Harry Kane is almost Irreplaceable
So, it was not a surprise when Tottenham Hotspur‘s striker Lucas Moura said via Instagram live that Jose Mourinho would want to keep him at the club despite strong links with Manchester United.
Lucas stressed that it would be almost impossible for the club to replace Harry Kane if he finally leaves the London club.
“It’s hard to speak about the future, about negotiation because it’s a personal decision. I’m sure that every season Tottenham receive offers for Harry Kane,” Lucas said.
“It’s not me who has to decide, but of course I want to play with him in the next season. I want to stay with him because he’s very important for us and it’s not easy to find a player like him.
“Everyone knows he’s a big player. He’s very important for us, he’s our striker and scores almost every game. I’m sure that Mourinho wants to keep him. He counts on him for the rest of the season as well as for the next one.”
