Harry Kane is incompatible with Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus should sign Gabriel Jesus instead, says Luca Toni – The Sun

HARRY KANE could NOT play up front with Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Italy legend Luca Toni.

The Spurs and England striker looks like finishing the season without a trophy and with Champions League qualification also up in the air.

It will inevitably lead to summer transfer rumour that Kane could seek pastures news, with Manchester United and Real Madrid sure to be interested.

And a switch to Italian football might not be out of the question either.

Juventus would be the most likely destination, with Ronaldo advancing in years despite scoring goals aplenty still.

But Toni, who played for Juve towards the end of his career and won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, thinks that a Kane/Ronaldo partnership wouldn’t work.


And the 42-year-old thinks Manchester City hitman Gabriel Jesus would be a better fit.

Speaking to Tuttosport, Toni said: “CR7 is not a pure center forward, but he is the one who scores the most and must score the most goals.

“A finisher, such as Kane, who I consider the best of the under 30s, is not necessarily perfect for Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I see Gabriel Jesus as a better option, who assists at City but also scores a lot, he opens spaces for his teammates, presses and is only 22 years old.”

Last season in the Premier League Kane scored 17 goals in 28 games. The one before that he finished with 30 in 37 and in 2017-18 he bagged 29 in just 30.

Ronaldo notched 21 goals in 31 Serie A games in his first season in Italy after signing in the summer of 2018.


SunSport reported how Kane has been urged to stay at Tottenham and help them win trophies by football legend John Barnes.

Barnes, who spent 10 years with Liverpool and was regarded as one of the finest players of his generation, believes Kane should spurn the interest.

Speaking to to BonusCodeBets.co.uk, the 56-year-old said: “Harry Kane should not look to leave Tottenham if he loves Spurs and is a fan of the club.

“If all players wanted to leave their club to win a trophy, all the players would go to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City or a Liverpool, and you’ll never have anyone playing anywhere else.

“You know you’re a Tottenham fan, you want to play for Tottenham so stay at Tottenham to try and help them win.

“Very similar with Bryan Robson at Manchester United. United and England captain at the time, whilst United were not doing well, he could have easily left.

“He thought I’m going to stay at Manchester United and help them to win.”

Kane was on the way back to full fitness after a hamstring injury before coronavirus put the Premier League season on hold.
