Wanted by Manchester United and Bayern Munich, Harry Kane knows his club’s determined stance. And Tottenham Hotspur ownership insists it will not let its star go for less than €116 million.
The story of an endless novel is a concept that can be applied to several elite soccer players in this discipline. In this latest chapter, the destiny of the 29-year-old Kane crops up again.
The superlative striker could not help Spurs avoid elimination from the Champions League against AC Milan last week perhaps making him more determined to complete his change of scenery with a view to the coming season.
A hefty price for Harry Kane
Daniel Levy, president of the Spurs, will not contemplate Kane’s goodbye for less than €116 million. That is the equivalent to the incredible investment made in its day by Manchester City to sign Jack Grealish (from Aston Villa).
We will have to wait to see if the Bavarian giant and the Red Devils submit bids for the star of the North London team. For now, his future remains linked to the Premier League until the end of this campaign.
So far this season, Kane has accumulated 20 goals and 2 assists for Tottenham in league play. In the UEFA Champions League, the striker scored 1 goal and handed out 2 assists.
Numbers undoubtedly show the quality of an attacker who has the ambition to win both individual and collective titles. After more than a decade of defending the Spurs shirt – and only 15 months remaining on his contract – it may be the ideal time for Kane to leave London.
