Sky Sports pundit Souness said people like Real Madrid or Manchester City could come and get him in the future.
He said, ‘The two awards out there are (Erling) Haaland and Kane. Haaland is still a question mark, but it is getting smaller every week.
‘With Harry there is no question mark, we know what we get. Everything about him is a joy to watch, from trying to get the ball back, to making fun and smart passes, to taking shots when you think he won’t get off, to doing so. be accurate if it does shoot.
“I think with Harry this year or never for him. If he is thinking of going, and if he decides to renew his contract, he won’t get a big step after that. ‘

He added: ‘Who can afford it, we know it’s been tough with Covid even for the big clubs. But obvious candidates are PSG and Manchester City.
‘I don’t think Pep is being completely honest when he says they won’t be big this year, I think they will. When you spend a lot of money there is always a question mark, with Harry there are none, you just have to keep him fit. ‘
Dawson said he could get his hands on the Carabao Cup while they play Manchester City in the final, while qualifying for the Champions League could be a ‘decisive point’.
He added: ‘Harry is such a loyal man, only he will know this. He’s already a Spurs legend, but he might want to break all records.

Souness replied: ‘It challenges yourself and is going to play for the biggest club in the world.
‘You have a greater chance of winning the league and Madrid than with Spurs in the near future and the Champions League.
‘Personally, I wanted to win the big trophies over and over again. Will Harry be happy with one League Cup? ‘
Kane’s brace against Newcastle saw him break a Premier League record for the most away goals scored by a player for a club since its inception.
