Tottenham can forget about the Champions League next season and Harry Kane MUST leave the club if he wants to match his ambitions to win trophies, Danny Murphy has told talkSPORT.
Reports over the weekend suggested the Lilywhites’ talisman is ready to leave his boyhood club if they fail to secure a Premier League top-four finish and qualify for Europe’s elite competition next season.
Their Champions League quest took a major blow on Sunday as they fell to a damaging 3-1 defeat to Manchester United, leaving them six points adrift of fourth-placed West Ham.
United, among a host of top European clubs, have been linked with a move to sign Kane, who has scored a staggering 217 goals in 329 appearances for Spurs.
Rivals Man City have also been sounded out as a potential destination for the England captain and Danny Murphy believes Kane must leave the club if he wants to lift silverware in his career.
He told talkSPORT: “I don’t know a person who says he’s desperate to leave but I’ve seen he’s spoken in the past that he wants to win things – he won’t win anything there.
“Their Champions League hopes are in tatters now. It was always a long shot they had a little recovery recently but the Arsenal defeat was a huge blow to them.
“The performance and defeat yesterday [against United] says to me they’re not going to be there.”
Jamie O’Hara also can’t see a long-term future for Kane at White Hart Lane.
The former Spurs midfielder was heavily critical of Tottenham and their ‘pathetic’ performance against the Red Devils and believes the north London club should explore the possibility of cashing in on Kane this summer to fund a rebuild of their squad.
“As a Spurs fan obviously you don’t want Harry Kane to ever leave the football club,” he said on Monday’s talkSPORT Breakfast.
“But if he is going to leave and you’re outside the top-four… there NEEDS to be a rebuild there.
“The club is a joke at the minute, the players are not good enough, no desire, no heart.
“You look at Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Davison Sanchez, Eric Dier… we could raise £200million here and build a new team.
