According to the former England defender, Harry Kane should leave the Spurs and join current back-to-back champions Manchester City.

Former England defender Glen Johnson has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur and move to Manchester City.

“If I was in Harry’s shoes, I would think that I can play elsewhere and have a much better chance of playing with better players and adding trophies to my cabinet,” Johnson told BetDaq according to The Daily Mail.

“In a couple of years his goals could dry up at Spurs and he’d be out the door.”

He commented: “There are no loyalties in football and he has to look after himself first and foremost.”

“I don’t think he’d be suited to the Spanish style of playing, so he might have to wait for Sergio Aguero to move on at City before going there.”

“But it’s not out of the question that could happen in my opinion,” Johnson added.

“If I was Harry, I know what I’d do, I’d be moving on for the sake of my career to win as much as I could.”

English striker Harry Kane debuted professionally in 2009 with Tottenham Hotspur.

He was a product of the Spurs youth system.

But since 2009 he has been loaned four times: in 2011 to Leyton Orient, in 2012 to Milwall, and the same year to Norwich City.

His last loan was in 2013 to Leicester City.

With the Spurs, Kane has played 262 matches in eleven different Premier League campaigns.

He has scored 171 goals in the process.
