Kane’s long-term future at Spurs was a talking point again this week following comments from former manager Andre Villas-Boas that he will have to leave the north London club if he ‘hungers for fame and trophies’.
Current boss Mauricio Pochettino has since hit back at AVB, insisting Kane is happy and can fulfil his dreams of winning titles at Spurs.
But Ginola believes the England star’s future depends less on the silverware he can win, but rather the club’s ability to fend off big-money interest from the likes of Real Madrid.
Kane’s goalscoring exploits – he has won the Premier League golden boot two years running and currently tops the top flight’s scoring charts – have reportedly attracted the interest of the Spanish giants.
And Ginola believes Spurs’ resolve to keep their home-grown superstar will be tested sooner or later.
Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Frenchman said: “Thinking about the future, is Harry Kane going to win trophies with Spurs?
“It all depends on how Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino are going to set up the club in the next five years.
“Footballers' careers are very short and you need to first think about your own career. You don’t have to be selfish, but in a way, yes. It’s a very selfish world.
“If Real Madrid put a lot of money on the table, say they put down £200million, is Levy going to refuse the offer? I’m not sure about that.
“Also, the wages they would offer Harry Kane are going to be much higher than what he’s on right now at Spurs, so the whole package will be very difficult to refuse.
“Obviously keeping Harry Kane will be very good for the club, but if they can pocket £200million and maybe exchange Karim Benzema in the deal…
“Anything can be happen.”
Kane has often repeated that he dreams of spending his entire career at Tottenham, such is his confidence that the team will soon start challenging for top honours.
But Ginola doubts whether the club will be able to keep the striker long-term, adding: “I would be very surprised to be honest [if Kane spent his whole career at Spurs].
“They would have to change the entire structure of the club to keep Harry Kane on board.”
