Former Tottenham striker Louis Saha believes that losing Harry Kane would be similar to Real Madrid and Barcelona struggling to replace Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The England captain has been linked with a move away from Spurs throughout the summer months having expressed his desire to win trophies on a consistent basis.

The three-time Premier League golden boot winner remains a Tottenham player regardless of Manchester City constantly being linked with a move, despite having already broken the British transfer record for the signing of Jack Grealish.

With Kane such a crucial player to the Tottenham squad, having been named as the club’s top goalscorer in each of the last seven seasons, a run stretching back to 2014, Saha believes he would be on par with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for influence.

The two have both departed Barcelona and Real Madrid in recent years, with the latter, in particular, struggling to replicate the Portuguese superstar’s absence. It remains to be seen how the Catalans fare with Messi having only recently joined Paris Saint-Germain following his Barcelona exit.

Saha, talking to Genting Bet’s Football Insights, said: “If Tottenham did lose Kane, I’m confident they would rebuild the team better than they did last time around with Bale.

“Replacing Kane will be difficult – it will be the same as Real Madrid have had with Ronaldo and the same that Barcelona will have with Messi. You need to find creative ways to replace such talent. But this is all part of football.”

A deal to see Kane leave north London still looks extremely difficult. football.london understands that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is not keen and will dig his heels in on selling such a pivotal player.

Meanwhile, the striker still has three years left to run on the six-year contract he signed in 2018.
