With the actual football up in the air, clubs may already be turning their attention to their summer plans and Tottenham may be fighting to keep hold of star man Harry Kane.
Spurs are looking increasingly unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next season and therefore it will leave Kane in a tricky situation – a club he’s played for and loved for so longer will seemingly be going backwards and turning 27 in the summer, can he really afford to wait for Tottenham to rejuvenate again and compete for the Premier League?
We have to be realistic and see it as unlikely. With the likes of Manchester United prowling for a new striker and their apetite for more homegrown players and club taking progressive steps to get back to their best, Kane would surely struggle to turn his nose up at the opportunity – and then there’s the money, for both Spurs and the player – can either afford to turn it down?
Well Spurs have named their price if you believe Diario Madridista (via the Daily Express) who say the player will cost any interested party €170million – which is just north of £150million.
That’s a figure that United are capable of paying, but whether they could sign the likes of Jadon Sancho and Kane in one summer is another thing, with the duo likely to cost a combined £300million.
But the latest reports suggest both Real Madrid and Juventus will rival United for the striker. If Daniel Levy does intend to sell, then the three clubs you would want to be interested, are reportedly interested, so I guess that’s a good thing?
Spurs have already been without Kane for some time due to injury and in January we explored some signings they could have made in his absence, but any replacement in the summer should be made with a longer term view in mind.
