England striker Harry Kane has pledged his long-term future to Tottenham, claiming he’s not a player who’s motivated by money.
Kane has already scored sixteen goals in all competition this season, after netting fifty-nine in the last two seasons combined.
Reports have linked Real Madrid and Manchester United with a big-money move in the summer. However, the 23-year-old isn’t in it for the money and insists he is happy at Tottenham.
Talking to Ian Abrahams for TalkSport, Kane said:
“The most important thing for me is that the club is moving forward.
“We have got a young team, a young, fantastic manager, we have got a new stadium coming in two years and we have got a new training ground.
“Everything is progressing as I want it to be and as the club want it to be so, as long as that continues, I don’t see why I can’t stay there for the rest of my career.
“Some people are motivated by money – I’m not one of them. I am motivated by trying to win trophies.
“I am happy at Tottenham. I go into work every day with a smile on my face and that is important.
“Money is a bonus of the job, but it doesn’t always make you happy.”
During the same interview, Kane offered his thoughts on the Premier League title race and insists it’s not yet over.
Chelsea have lost just once in their last eighteen games and have a nine-point lead over Tottenham, but the Spurs striker says “they are catchable.”
Kane insists the Premier League is unpredictable, using Arsenal’s defeat against Watford as an example of this. He continued:
“It is nine points – it’s only three games. In the Premier League you have recently seen Liverpool dropping points to Hull and Arsenal to Watford. No game is easy – Chelsea will know that.
“They are in good form at the minute but all we can do is win our games and see what happens.”
Tottenham fans will be glad to hear Kane is staying long-term and he still believes they can win the Premier League this season.
