Rochdale v Tottenham Hotspur - The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round
The Premier League's best striker might be on his way out in the summer.

No club wants to lose its most influential player but in a world in which a club of the financial might of Barcelona can be made to look like fools, Tottenham Hotspur does not have much of a chance of holding on to their prized asset; Harry Kane.

Kane has won the Premier League Golden Boot in the last two seasons and at the moment, he is leading the goalscoring chart with 23 goals so far.

Naturally, reports have surfaced in Spain that he might be Real Madrid bound and in fact, if he is for sale, then plenty of clubs will be vying for his signature.

One would think that such a sale would completely cripple Spurs but there are plenty of reasons why it might not be as much of a disaster as many seem to think

#5 Spurs have lost world-class players in the past

West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
Gareth Bale left for a world record fee in 2013 but Spurs have coped.

Now, this might sound like a cliché but a player, however good, is not bigger than the club and over the course of their recent history, Tottenham has lost talismanic players quite frequently. Back in 1992, Paul Gascoigne left for Lazio and over the years they have lost players.

More recently, Spurs sold Luka Modric to Real Madrid and two years later, sold their best player Gareth Bale to the same club. So, have had such experiences in the past and have recovered from losing those players.

For instance, no one gave them much of a chance when they lost Bale but Kane emerged and has taken them to new heights. It is perhaps a bit premature to write Spurs off in the event of his sale.
