Chelsea transfer news: Harry Kane tipped to whip kids into shape in ‘scary’ reunion with Mauricio Pochettino
Ian Wright fears Harry Kane reuniting with Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea would send a “scary” message to rivals.
The Tottenham striker has only a year left on his contract in north London and, given the turmoil at the club, could seek a move away in the summer.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have all been linked with Kane - should Spurs decide to sell - and ex-Arsenal striker Wright believes Pochettino’s appointment at Stamford Bridge could turn the tide in their favour.
Furthermore, he feels that inserting a player of Kane’s experience and leadership into the Blues’ young dressing room could whip them into shape.
“That’s the only thing Tottenham fans wouldn’t be able to deal with, if he went to Chelsea,” he told Premier League Productions, via HITC.
“Can you imagine, if Pochettino went to Chelsea, with the young players he has got and the fact that he is so good with that kind of player? That progressive young player. When you look at the dressing room he has left [at PSG], with respect to dealing with Neymar, [Lionel] Messi and [Kylian] Mbappe.
“The way he can manage that situation, with young players, with Harry Kane and with the players Chelsea have got. That’s scary. That could be scary for someone.
“If he had to sit down with somebody, you probably think Mauricio could tempt him there.
“You are talking about the legacy of Spurs. That’s the thing that would bother him, more than anything. He is loyal. Would he want to go all the way to Manchester?”
