Blues fans will love this after £150 million superstar told he should sign with Chelsea this summer
Harry Kane should seal a transfer to Chelsea this summer and not worry about what Tottenham fans think, according to William Gallas.
Kane hit the transfer headlines just a few weeks ago after he told the Tottenham board that he no longer wanted to stay at the club and wanted to leave this transfer window, after the European Championships.
He has three years left on his Spurs deal and will command a huge transfer fee if he does move on this summer, but that has not stopped rumours that the likes of Manchester United, Man City and Chelsea are ready to keep him in the Premier League
“Harry Kane has to leave Tottenham this summer,” he told Ladbrokes at the launch of their new European Championships 5-a-side Bet.
“He’s a top-class striker, and top-class strikers have to play at big, big clubs. Clubs who can win trophies. Tottenham can’t give him that.
“Harry’s played for Tottenham for many years, and he’s been the top scorer in the league in almost every season, but at the end of the season he’s never lifted a trophy.”
He says that while it might be difficult for Kane to deal with the Tottenham fans’ unhappiness, he should be selfish and join Thomas Tuchel’s side, who have just won the Champions League.
“If he had the choice between, let’s say, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, I think he’d go abroad because he doesn’t want to offend fans,” Gallas said.
“But if he doesn’t have a choice and he can only go to Chelsea, he has to go there. I know it will be difficult for fans, but you have to accept the choice of the player.
“For me, I chose to stay in London during my time in the Premier League because it was about my family as well. I had an opportunity to go to AC Milan after Chelsea but it didn’t happen.
“Arsenal came in for me and I said: ‘OK, I’ll go there’. I knew fans wouldn’t be happy, but I told myself I gave five years of my life for Chelsea and I gave everything for the club.
“I didn’t cheat on them because I always gave 100 per cent. When I moved to Tottenham, again I was thinking about my family so the decision was simple.
“I know for the fans it’s really difficult to understand that, even now some fans still call me ‘Judas’, but I don’t have a problem with that.
“I have a life away from football and I have to think about my family. It would be different if I was born in England and I was a Chelsea fan, for example. But I’ve never been a fan of any club, even when I was younger.
“The fans have to understand, and if they were in our position, maybe they’d have made the decisions I made.”
