Is Harry Kane Worth the Hype?

Going by how the media have talked about Harry Kane over the last two weeks, you'd think that the young Spurs striker is the next Messi or Ronaldo. We all know the media love to build up young talent as being the next bit thing but for some reason this Harry Kane stuff seems to be even more over the top than usual. Talk Sport even valued him at £100 million the other day! £100 million!!! So my question is, do you rate Harry Kane as much as the media do? Do you think he's worth as much as £100 million or even half that amount? Have your say..

For me Kane is a good player with a promising future but I don't ever see him being amongst the world's elite. He'll score a lot of goals for any club he plays for and might do well for England but I just don't see him setting the world alight. Once you've been over hyped this much by the English media, it must be hard to try and reach the potential that they've convinced the world you have, just ask Theo Walcott and the endless list of others that have been in this position before and after the 2 weeks Kane's had, it wouldn't surprise me to see his form suffer between now and the end of the season or throughout next season.

He's a good forward for sure and thats worth gold (literally I mean) Financially once you are up there they are going to be negotiating crazy packages but it's all relative because they will do that for anyone.

After all the praise there is always the knock down. I think its way too early to judge.

Well looking at the Madrid-Granada match there's nobody like Ronaldo hardly anyone alive or dead can match the guy (5 goals in 1 match thank you-very much) so that sort of legacy is hard to live up to for anyone including Kane. But is that even a fair comparison??

Nothing is set in stone. It seems Pochettino is not wanting to take things too fast. I think he's going along for the Malaysia trip but they're keeping a close eye on what sort of stamina he has etc and how consistent he turns out.

Harry Kane is certainly not worth the hype if his Euro U21 performances are anything to go by.
