It is difficult to argue that Harry Kane is anything but loyal. The Spurs hitman has stayed at the club since signing a scholarship at the club in 2009 when he turned 16. Now 27, and having risen through the ranks to be Tottenham and England’s talisman, Kane has fired in 162 goals in 239 Premier League appearances.
There’s no doubting his talent and the Spurs man has been described as ‘the greatest player to have never won a title’ by fans, having never lifted a major trophy with his beloved club. So, is it time for Kane to move on? Certainly, the transfer rumour mill is in full swing, with odds available should Kane decide to leave Spurs in search of major honours. What are his most likely options? William Hill is offering odds on the following clubs…
City head the odds
It’s no secret Manchester City will be looking for a prolific striker next season. Club legend Sergio Aguero has been told he’s free to look for another club and while Gabriel Jesus has stepped up on occasions, he’s not seen as the main long-term forward option at City. Kane would seem the perfect fit. Just look at how many Premier League goals he’s scored in each of the past five seasons:
- 2019/2020 – 18 (29 appearances)
- 2018/2019 – 17 (28 appearances)
- 2017/2018 – 30 (37 appearances)
- 2016/2017 – 29 (30 appearances)
- 2015/2016 – 25 (38 appearances)
Now just imagine what he could do with the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden feeding him. Pep Guardiola’s men lead the charge for his signature and are priced at 3/1 to get their man in the summer with William Hill.
United close behind
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United will also be in the market for a hitman in the summer. French striker Anthony Martial has hardly proved prolific again this season, only scoring 4 times in 17 Premier League appearances. Although Edinson Cavani has had an impact at United, with eight Premier League goals in his current one-year contract, the Uruguayan is now 34.
They, along with City, have also been linked with Norwegian striker Erling Haaland, but Kane fits the bill and has proved himself season after season in the Premier League. United are priced at 5/1 with William Hill to sign Kane.
Kane for Spain?
Kane’s attracting interest from some of the best clubs in Europe too. Among them are Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. With Haaland expected to cost well over £100 million and Kylian Mbappe of PSG possibly more, Kane is seen as a more economical bet. Real Madrid was linked heavily with the striker last summer and are in the market for someone prolific. Zinedine Zidane’s side is currently heavily reliant on 33-year-old Karim Benzema.
Doubts, however, have been raised about whether Real can even afford Kane’s transfer fee. They are 8/1 with William Hill to land the Englishman. Barcelona, meanwhile, is out at 12/1 for Kane. Ronald Koeman’s side is currently off the pace in La Liga, behind Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Guaranteed goals from Kane would surely bridge that gap next season.
A reunion with Pochettino?
Also in the running are PSG. The French champions, and Champions League semi-finalists, are managed by Kane’s former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. Don’t forget, too, that should Spurs chairman Daniel Levy sell his star man, it would be preferable for Kane not to join a Premier League club. PSG are 8/1 with William Hill to bag Kane.
