Tottenham Hotspur could face an uphill task of keeping hold of their headline performer Harry Kane if they fail to secure the top-four finish in the Premier League
The 26-year-old striker could depart north London in the summer, as he desperately wants to win trophies, and Spurs may be unable to prevent him from leaving unless they qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Indeed, the outcome of their top-four race could prove vital in Daniel Levy’s efforts to keep the England international, as both him and Mourinho wants to see Kane remain at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium beyond the summer.
Mourinho’s men are currently lagging five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea after losing both of their previous league matches.
According to the Metro, the prolific goalscorer could consider his options in the summer if Tottenham miss out on Champions League football.
The same source also states that the London outfit will value their talisman upwards of £100m to raise funds for new signings, as Mourinho has recently admitted there will be no drastic changes ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
After establishing himself as one of the most lethal frontmen in Europe, Kane has been urged by many football pundits and influential figures to leave Tottenham to take his career to the next level.
Although he has so far remained adamant he wants to stay at Tottenham, the two-time Premier League top goalscorer could finally switch away from north London to fulfill his ambitions.
Kane, who has been on the sidelines since mid-January when he picked up a hamstring injury, may not feature again for Tottenham this season and may have as well played his last game for the Lilywhites.
