January 18, the famous Daily Telegraph reporter Matt Law wrote a column
Article, the title of the article is—Why it is time for Harry Kane to leave Tottenham
Talk to anyone who has worked with Harry Kane or knew him and they will tell you the same thing – it was time for him to leave Tottenham.
Of course, things are not that simple and Thursday night’s game against Manchester City was a reminder why Kane was not entirely sure that his request to leave Spurs would be approved by chairman Daniel Levy.
In the summer two years ago, when Kane wanted to join Manchester City, Levi held all the initiative.
But this summer… the striker only has one year left on his contract.
Since Kane tried to force a transfer to Manchester City, he has rejected a contract extension attempt by Tottenham. It is reported that he is currently in no rush to complete the contract with the team.
Even with 12 months left on his contract and the possibility that he could eventually leave on a free transfer, it’s still believed that Levy will demand £100m from any English club this year, except for the list.
Weiwei will “open the net” to overseas teams and ask for a lower price.
Those close to Kane believe that only Champions League qualification or trophies are likely to attract Kane to stay, because Tottenham will face AC Milan in the Champions League round of 16, and there are also domestic cup hopes.
Sources close to Kane believe he would prefer to stay in England, but City have signed Haaland, the only forward who has outperformed him so far this season.
United have long been interested in Kane, but sources suggest the 29-year-old is not exactly what Erik ten Hag had in mind, with him said to prefer faster forwards such as Napoli’s O’Neill.
It seems that only Newcastle and Chelsea are left in England. The former seems to have no prospect of winning the championship. If Kane really wants to switch to Chelsea, he may face a future spurned by the entire Tottenham fan base.
Bayern Munich are closely monitoring Kane’s situation and are expected to make an offer for him, while Paris Saint-Germain may be interested in him, depending on the future of Mbappe, Messi and Neymar.
Both clubs would all but guarantee Kane the title and Champions League football, but he would face talk of a move to one of Europe’s third or fourth biggest leagues, behind the Premier League and La Liga.
Real Madrid have long been tipped to be interested in Kane and the prospect of a move to Spain appears more appealing should Pochettino replace Ancelotti in the summer.
It should also be remembered that Tuchel, another candidate for the Real Madrid job, has also had ambitious plans should Ancelotti leave, having also expressed interest in Kane at Chelsea in 2021.
Kane has an emotional attachment to Pochettino but, as those who have worked with him and know him well will tell you, it is time for his mind to rule his heart
Potentially bad news for Thorn.
