Tottenham Hotspur icon Dimitar Berbatov has admitted he couldn’t imagine the club without Harry Kane in the squad.
Kane still has a year on his contract and 90 minutes he understands that talks on a new one are on hold until the club appoints a new manager.
While Spurs have struggled this season, Kane has gone on to become the all-time top scorer for club and country, cementing his place in the history books.
Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs concerned in the captaincy of England.
Former Tottenham star Berbatov, speaking on behalf of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, explained 90 minutes because he simply cannot imagine Kane starting next season at another club.
“Probably in the summer we’ll see that kind of saga again, Kane going somewhere, this is a TV soap opera,” Berbatov said.
“But at the same time, I don’t think he’s going to leave. I think his legacy with Spurs is so big now that you can’t tarnish it. Maybe you would, but you won’t let yourself because it’s so big, you know?
“And you know, the goalscoring record and everything that he achieved with Spurs \- when you say Spurs, Harry Kane is in my mind. First thing that comes to mind, Kane. His history with Spurs is incredible.
“I think he will stay there in my mind. The only thing I wish for him is that he will score goals, probably break Alan Shearer [Premier League] scoring record at one point.
“The only thing I want to wish for [for] he’s that maybe he even wins something along the way.”
kane could remain at Tottenham this summer, partly due to the fact that chairman Daniel Levy has proved a notoriously difficult person to deal with in the transfer transfer market – Berbatov’s move from Spurs to Man Utd famously left Sir Alex Ferguson arguing that negotiating with him was worse than having his hip replaced.
Berbatov opened this transfer saga, defending Levy for doing well with his club.
“Well, Daniel Levy is a businessman. He is defending his club. He is working in the interests of the club. And if I were in his place, I would do the same thing,” Berbatov said.
“So he knows exactly what he wants, exactly how to get it.
“If there will be a negotiation, if United go ahead and try to buy Kane, the negotiation will be very difficult for them, and they know they have been there before with me, with [Michael] Carrick. At some point they will do it again.
“Will it be with Harry Kane? Well, let’s wait and see. The price is going to be huge. But at the same time, like I said, I don’t think it’s going to happen.
“I think legacy, sometimes players build legacy and you don’t want to break it. Sometimes even legacy and records are more important than titles, depending on who you ask. So everyone has to choose in this case. Harry Kane has to be trusted what’s important to him and then do it.”
