Harry Kane, Tottenham and England’s all-time record goalscorer, is reportedly being pursued by Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in addition to Manchester United. Kane’s contract with Tottenham expires next year, and he is expected to leave the club to pursue a major piece of silverware elsewhere. While he has a strong affinity for his boyhood club, he is valued at around £100 million, and this summer presents the last chance for Tottenham to cash in on the 29-year-old should they fail to tie him down to a new contract.
Bayern Munich has also been linked with Kane, but the Mail Online claims that Real Madrid and PSG are interested in signing him next summer when he will be available on a free. Real Madrid has been linked with Kane in the past, and it is possible that they view him as the successor to Karim Benzema, who is currently out of contract this summer but expected to stick around until the end of next season. PSG, on the other hand, is looking for new superstars to sign with Lionel Messi’s stay seemingly coming to an end, while the futures of both Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are also up in the air.
It remains to be seen whether Kane really wants to leave Spurs at all, but it is expected that his preference is to stay in the Premier League at least as he hunts down Alan Shearer’s goal record. So far this season, he has scored 23 in 30 league appearances to bring his total tally up to 206 – just 54 short of the Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle legend.
United is expected to make a bid for Kane, with a striker top of Erik ten Hag’s wishlist. The report also claims that United would like to sign two strikers – one experienced, one young – and are looking at Brighton’s breakthrough talent Evan Ferguson. However, it is said that Spurs also want the 18-year-old wonderkid to succeed Kane after bursting onto the scene with eight goals and three assists in 18 games so far this campaign. Chelsea and Newcastle are also monitoring Ferguson, but Brighton has no interest in selling unless an obscene offer is made for the Republic of Ireland international.
In conclusion, Real Madrid and PSG have reportedly entered the race to sign Tottenham legend Harry Kane, who remains heavily linked with Manchester United. Both clubs are said to be waiting until next summer to sign Kane when he will be available on a free. It remains to be seen whether Kane really wants to leave Spurs at all, but it is expected that his preference is to stay in the Premier League at least as he hunts down Alan Shearer’s goal record.
