Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has claimed that current club talisman Harry Kane is facing a “difficult” choice at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old hit his 30th and 31st goals of the campaign in Friday night's 2-2 draw against Everton, but is still yet to lift a trophy with his boyhood club and has been at the centre of widespread speculation over a potential summer exit.

Uncertainty over Spurs’ Champions League status next season has fuelled talk surrounding a possible transfer.

During his own time in north London, Berbatov made the decision to leave the club in search of success with Manchester United, and the Bulgarian has argued that Kane may have to make a decision between his love for Tottenham and his personal ambitions to win silverware.

Speaking to BetFair, he said: "I was Harry Kane at Tottenham once.

"I was in this position with the same decision and at the same club. There will be big thoughts going through his head.

"If he moves, he will be disappointing lots of Spurs fans. Some will turn against him, it is how it is in football.

"Fans take it personally and think that you are leaving, they feel that you've betrayed the club.

"My situation was similar, but also slightly different.

"I wanted to go to the biggest club to win trophies and that was Manchester United.

"When I heard there was a chance to go there, I did not hesitate.

"It depends on what your goals are in football...

"You might love a club and just want to play football and enjoy the game.

"Other players want trophies. Everyone is different, but it will depend on his personal motivations.

"If Kane called me I would tell him he has to make the right choice, decide on his personal ambitions and motivations.

"If he leaves, he will let some people down.

"It is his decision and it is going to be a difficult one."

Kane picked up an ankle injury on the closing stages of Friday night’s clash at Goodison Park, and was forced off the field in added time.

At the moment, there is no concrete indication as to how serious the complaint is.
