Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, ex-Premier League striker Marcus Bent has described Harry Kane as one of the best players in the country, but has shockingly questioned whether the Tottenham striker is good enough to play for the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United because of his attributes.
Kane’s future was thrown into serious doubt when strong reports suggested that the England captain will push for a move away from north London this summer, should Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League.
And that looks likely to be the case, with Tottenham now five points adrift of the top four with just four games to play.
Edinson Cavani scored against Spurs for the Red Devils last month, but with the Uruguayan expected to leave Old Trafford this summer, United are going to need a replacement, whilst Manchester City also need one for Sergio Aguero – with both City and United linked with the Spurs frontman.
But Bent, who scored 40 Premier League goals across three separate decades, has doubts over whether Kane could make the step up.
He told Football FanCast:
“He’s the top striker in England at the minute. He’s the main reason why Tottenham are where they are at the minute.
“But is he the player that can go to Manchester United, Real Madrid, Man City? Is he good enough to play in those sides? Is he athletic enough? Is he going to be number one at those teams?”
