Premier League legend tells striker ‘now is the time to move’ as Chelsea ready to pay massive £150 million?
Jamie Carragher has warned Chelsea target Harry Kane he has reached the crossroads of his career at the “worst possible time”
Regarded as one of the finest strikers in the game right now, and one of the most deadliest in the Premier League, Kane has hit the transfer headlines over the past few weeks after he came out and announced that he could leave the Spurs in the coming seasons if they fail to progress.
That has led to all sorts of rumours in the media linking him with a move to the Bridge, as many regard him as a world class striker that is playing in a side that has limited capabilities right now.
In his Telegraph column, the Sky Sports pundit said: “Harry Kane has reached the crossroads of his career at the worst time possible. In other circumstances, the Tottenham striker’s comments suggesting he would consider a move in the near future would be reasonable.
“These are far from normal times, with clubs losing money and needing to cut costs rather than plan major investments in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
“That means if players in the highest price bracket want out of their clubs, there is less chance they will get their wish.
“Kane is in that category. A limited number of clubs can afford him, and I am not sure how many have the appetite to engage in a fractious negotiation with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in the current climate.”
Carragher added: “Kane turns 27 in July. We have no idea when the next transfer window will open or next season start. If Kane does not leave soon, the situation gets trickier for him.
“When players hit 28, psychologically it makes a big difference to clubs. They see him as nearer 30, recognise there is no resale value and balk at high valuations.”
