The Champions is the competition that all the great footballers want to play. The possible absence of Dortmund in the next edition may open the doors of the Rhenish club to Haaland and Another classification that may be unsuccessful, Tottenham, may offer Real Madrid an alternative for the forward. It’s the one presented by Harry Kane. According The Athletic, the 27-year-old English striker is frustrated by Tottenham’s lack of progression, which this year was left out of the maximum continental competition and does not have all of them with him to be next season. The London team is sixth in the Premier, three points behind fourth place, which West Ham occupies, and with Chelsea sandwiched in fifth place.
If Tottenham are left without the Champions League for the second consecutive season, Kane, who has a contract until June 2024, may precipitate his departure. The Athletic locates the Manchester United and Manchester City as the best placed to take over their services, with PSG and Real Madrid also in a privileged position. One route, that of Kane and the whites, which Cadena SER already advanced a few weeks ago. The Parisians, for their part, have the trump card of Mauricio Pochettino, who was their coach at Tottenham for more than five seasons.
The transfer of Kane may mark a new record in the Tottenham market, whose biggest sale was that of Bale to Real Madrid for 101 million euros in the summer of 2013. Although Daniel Levy once considered that Kane would not leave Tottenham because of a figure that was not close to the 222 million euros that PSG paid to Barça for Neymar, the British media puts its price at about 140 million pounds (more than 160 million euros, at current rate). A depreciation caused by the impact of the pandemic on the soccer economy. The specialized portal Transfermarkt rates Kane’s market value at € 120 million.
