Harry Kane has reportedly made up his mind to play in the Premier League next season, but perhaps not for his current club Tottenham Hotspur. The Spurs were far from at their best this year. They finished eighth in the league table, meaning the north London club will not be competing in the Champions League next season. Against this backdrop, Kane is reportedly in search of a new destination with three major clubs from different leagues interested in signing the prolific striker. With offers coming from Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United, Kane wants to be in his home country and prefers the Red Devils as the most viable option, multiple reports from England claim.
Apart from United, Tottenham’s derby rivals Chelsea are also interested in acquiring Harry Kane’s service following the appointment of their new boss Mauricio Pochettino. Kane and Pochettino have previously spent a significant period together at Tottenham. During his tenure, Spurs advanced to the Champions League final in the 2018-19 season. But winning a trophy remained a bridge too far to cross as they were beaten by fellow Premier League side Liverpool in the summit matchup.
Harry Kane’s existing contract with Tottenham Hotspur will come to an end in the summer of next year. But the English international does not seem convinced to wait and plans to sign this summer. However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy does not want to sell Kane to a Premier League club that could thwart Manchester United’s interest, according to a Mirror report.
With Karin Benzema confirmed to leave Real Madrid this summer, boss Carlo Ancelotti will definitely be looking for a replacement for the long-serving striker. While keeping their eyes on Chelsea striker Kai Havertz, Los Blancos have also shown interest in Harry Kane. but Daniel Levy may demand a £100m fee in an effort to block the move.
Although it might be more attractive to be sold to a major foreign club, Kane is also motivated to break the Premier League goalscoring record. The England captain previously revealed that he was not interested in joining Paris Saint-Germain, which may indicate that staying in the Premier League is his priority. Kane knows he’d get even bigger offers if he stayed with the Spurs for another 12 months, becoming a free agent. He is currently just 47 goals shy of Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League record of 260 goals.
