The Harry Kane saga has come to an end recently, with the 28-year-old announcing that he wants to remain with Tottenham Hotspur. Manchester City was linked to the striker all summer, but a deal never materialized due to the Premier League rival not meeting the asking price.
Many applauded Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy for sticking to his guns and not letting Kane leave for anything less than the reported £150-million fee. However, one former Premier League player believes that the London-based club should’ve sold Kane this summer rather than holding onto him.
In an interview with Read Tottenham ex-Premier League striker Nigel Jemson, once a player has the mindset that they want to depart, the club should comply with their wishes.
“Listen, once the player decides that he wants to go, then you’re better off just selling them because you don’t want an unhappy player there. Harry’s been a fantastic servant to the club, but I think it’s just best for both parties that he did go,” Jemson said.
Kane likely wants to put this transfer window behind him as he will now focus on Tottenham and the England national team as the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers remain ongoing as the tournament takes place next year.
