It appears extremely likely that Harry Kane will be leaving Tottenham this summer. The England captain is in the prime of his career and wants to quit his boyhood club as he is still yet to win any major silverware.
Kane has been with the North London club since 2004
Kane has been with the North London club since 2004, where he made his debut for the youth team. Five years later he was given his first team debut for the club and has never looked back scoring 220 goals in 334 appearances for the club.
The striker who turns 28 in July has regularly spoken about his desire to win trophies and in truth he would never win a major trophy at the North London club.
Tottenham striker valuaded at over 100 million
It is likely he would cost in the region of well over £100million, with some sources quoting around £150million. Either way it is clear that chairman Daniel Levy would be prepared to listen to offers, but at the right price.
One can certainly understand Kane’s frustration as during his time at Spurs they have had two Premier League title challenges fall away. The
club have also lost in the Champions League final and defeated in two League Cup finals.
Where next for the Tottenham hot shot
So, where would be the next destination for Kane’s career? He has also insisted that he would prefer to stay in the Premier League, with the three likely sides fancied to grab his signature. Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. United have long retained an interest in the star striker with Chelsea expected to spend big this summer. However, one club who would not be put off with a big money transfer would be City. The blue side of
Manchester under Pep would appear to be the ideal choice for him. After all, who wouldn’t want to play in a City side brimming with world class players and talent.
City the likely destination for Kane
If Kane did move to the Etihad, that would appear to be his best guarantee of future success. Kane, who still has three years remaining on his existing contract, would want his future sorted out pretty quickly.
Remarkably, Kane has scored 162 Premier League goals since 2014 in a side that still can’t win a major trophy. Kane isn’t getting any younger. He has remained loyal to Tottenham and has single handily led the Tottenham front line for many a season. The striker has realised now that he needs a move away from Tottenham if he is ever going to win a showpiece trophy and to be considered one of
the world’s best.
Should he venture outside England for his next move, the chances of linking up with former manager Mauruicio Pochettino at PSG just could happen.
The French giants currently hold the two most expensive players in the world in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe and would dearly love to add Kane to their squad. Would they be prepared to shell out £100million plus this summer given the financial hit they have taken since the pandemic?
The answer to all these questions and more will be answered in the coming weeks. The big disappointment to any Spurs fan will be how can you replace a talent like Kane. Answer, you can’t, and that would be a serious concern for the team in white in North London.
