According to ESPN, Kane has now revealed that he judges himself by the highest standards and against the game's greatest players, as Messi and Ronaldo remain his greatest inspiration.

“I think of what they've done, they are as good in their 30s as they were in their 20s. Me just turning 30 now, it obviously gives me excitement to know if I keep my body in good shape and keep my mentality right, I could be playing at the highest level for as long as I want to do it.”

Kane turned 30 in June, and the English forward is aiming to win titles with Bayern Munich, including the Champions League, as he winds down his career in Germany.
