Tottenham star Harry Kane could be playing himself out of a move to Man City, says Ferdinand

‘This isn’t the Harry Kane we’ve grown to love’: Rio Ferdinand questions Tottenham striker’s form and suggests any Manchester City move may be off the cards if he cannot lift himself out of his current rut

  • Harry Kane has struggled for form for Tottenham throughout this season
  • The England captain had angled to leave the club for Man City in the summer  
  • He stayed on, but has just one Premier League goal to his name this campaign 


Harry Kane is playing himself out of a move to Manchester City, according to Rio Ferdinand. 

The Spurs striker pushed hard last summer for a move away from north London, but was forced to remain at the club after Daniel Levy stood firm on the valuation of the forward.

Kane, who had helped England to reach the Euro 2020 final in July, has struggled for form since returning to the Spurs fold, with even the introduction of Antonio Conte failing to reignite his fire in front of goal.

A solitary strike against Newcastle is his only league goal of th campaign so far, although he has managed six in the Europa Conference League. 

But that is not the kind of competition that suitors will be looking to for guidance, and Ferdinand believes the likes of City may begin to look elsewhere if his dip fails to rebound. 

‘If he’s not performing and not scoring, you have to worry about the situation with Harry,’ he said on his vibe with FIVE podcast.

‘I don’t think they’ll let him go in the January window. But in the summer, you’re thinking if he continues playing this way, not scoring the goals, do City even come back and try and take him? 

‘This isn’t a Harry Kane we’ve grown to love.’  

Kane has played every minute of league action for Spurs this season since the third game of the campaign against Watford.

Spurs face Rennes next up in a crucial Europa Conference League clash, before facing a trip to Brighton this weekend.
