Is it Time for Kane to Leave Spurs and Where Will he Go?

Harry Kane

Harry Kane's Best Destination isn't Necessarily away from Spurs

Harry Kane has been in the headlines this month regarding his future as a Tottenham Hotspur player. The England international has forever been linked with a move away from his boyhood club, but now could be the time those rumours become the reality.

After a turbulent season with Spurs, the striker has once again got the world talking about a move after a recent Instagram live chat with ex-Tottenham star, Jamie Redknapp.

Kane told Redknapp: “It’s one of those things – I couldn’t say yes and I couldn’t say no.

"I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs, but I’ve always said if I don’t feel we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there for the sake of it.”

As a boyhood fan, moving on for Kane isn't going to be easy. Spurs’ appearance in the Champions League final last year could have been a sign of change, but it’s starting to look closer to a one-off, rather than a platform to build. Mauricio Pochettino, the man who led them to the final, was sacked in November 2019 after five years at the club, and his dismissal may have seen the end of Kane's exceptional mentoring.

Pochettino has played an astronomical part in the 26-year-old's development and is widely credited for turning him into the striker he is today. With the Argentine still without a club, there is a real chance that he and Kane can link up again in the near future, an opportunity that may be too good to turn down for the Tottenham striker, such as Real Madrid.

On the other hand, some players just seem made for certain clubs. Think of Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal or Romelu Lukaku at Everton - some players only seem to fair well at one side. Could this be the case for Kane? Would a move to the Bernabeu be too much? Is United too far gone for him to succeed? Is, in actual fact, Spurs the best destination for him to keep bagging the goals?

Here, we will look at Harry Kane’s options and the odds being offered on where he could next be playing football.

A move to Spain

European giants Real Madrid are constantly being linked with signing the biggest names in football. Their Galactico transfer policy means that no signing ever seems too far away. Therefore, it is no surprise that as one of the best strikers in world football, Kane is seemingly at the top of their wish list.

Paddy Power currently rate Madrid as favourites to secure Kane’s signature, offering odds of 9/2. It’s easy to see why Madrid would be after the Spurs man, not only does Kane meet the transfer requirements of being an elite player, but the Spanish club also need a new goalscorer. Their signing of Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer hasn’t worked out, and there has been talk of the Serbian leaving in the summer after an underwhelming season.

At the same time, no man has come close to filling Cristiano Ronaldo's in the slightest, whilst Karim Benzema will be 33 by the end of this year.

Kane's reliability in front of goal is exactly what Madrid need since losing Ronaldo to Juventus, and it could be the only signing out there that gets them back in La Liga title contention, with Barcelona dominating the past 13 years.

For Kane, there is a chance that he could be linking up with former manager Mauricio Pochettino. Sure, Real Madrid already have Zinedine Zidane in charge, but the Frenchman hasn’t provided the spark that he would've hoped for in his second reign. Pochettino has been linked with the Madrid job for a while now and if he goes, could his former talisman follow him?

A move to Spain, playing in the Bernabeu and teaming up with Europe’s elite is enough to appeal to anyone. The move abroad is something that Kane must be considering, with trophies and European football all but a guarantee.

Is Real Madrid worth it when Barcelona is just across the country?

Moving to Madrid isn’t always the dream that it presents itself as. Gareth Bale, formerly of Tottenham himself, has had something of an odd relationship with Los Blancos. The Welshman hasn’t been a bad player for Madrid by any means, scoring decsive goals in two Champions League finals and a Copa Del Rey final in his debut season.

Although, his relationship with Zidane and aggro from the fans for one bad pass has ultimately broken things down to complete toxicity. The Frenchman has made it clear that he wants Bale to leave, and the tough Madrid fanbase is making things a tougher by the day for Bale.

The common argument amongst the Bernabeu faithful is that the ex-Spurs star hasn’t met the expectations that came with his big price tag, which could worry Kane, especially when in actual fact, Bale has been sublime for Madrid.

Harry Kane will likely cost upwards of £150 million; will he be willing to risk going through the same as Gareth Bale on his hunt for trophies?

This could turn his attention to Barcelona. Paddy Power are currently offering odds of 12/1 for Kane to make Camp Nou his new home and follow in the footsteps of English legend, and former Tottenham man, Gary Lineker.

Barcelona offers almost everything that Kane would want: league titles, Champions League battles, and playing with the very best.

For the Catalan giants, this too makes great sense. Luis Suarez is 33 and injuries seem to be in control of his career more than he is. Now, you only have to look back to January when Barcelona were left without a striker because of this, forcing the emergency signing of former Middlesbrough striker, Martin Braithwaite.

A move to Barcelona is an interesting prospect, but there is a lot of risk involved in a move abroad, as well. Although the club might not be seeking him as strongly as Madrid, the Camp Nou does seem the most plausible for his career.

Kane to Manchester

It's fair to say that if Kane is to move within England, a switch across London is unlikely. The Spurs star's love for the Lilywhites all but cuts off any ties with Chelsea and Arsenal, whilst up north, Liverpool don't seem to be in the market for him either.

This leaves the spaces open in Manchester. Just like Madrid and Barcelona, Manchester United will forever be linked with the biggest names in football. Their rich history and status as one of the world’s biggest clubs mean that it is a natural step for any man wanting to reach the pinnacle of the game - or, at least, it was. 

Paddy Power rate Manchester United 11/2 second-favourites to sign Kane, in what would be arguably the biggest transfer in English football's history.

For United, the move would hit the spot as precisely as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could want. Kane's record in the Premier League since 2014 is unrivalled, with only Sergio Aguero coming close to his numbers in the past six years.

However, a move to the Red Devils isn’t exactly the right move for Harry Kane right now. Regardless of their history, United aren’t a club that are winning trophies at the moment, and in truth, don't look like doing so anytime soon. If Kane’s only reason for leaving Spurs would be to compete for titles, why would he move to Old Trafford? 

Of course, staying in the Premier League does allow Kane to chase Alan Shearer's record of the league’s highest ever goalscorer. Shearer finished his Premier League career with an untouched 260 goals, but Kane already has 136, and at just 26 years old, looks on course to come close or surpass this number.

If staying in England whilst winning titles is what he wants, then a move to the blue side of Manchester seems the perfect option.

Manchester City are currently rated by Paddy Power as 12/1 outsiders to sign the striker and are an exciting possibility. Aguero isn’t getting any younger and City will be keen to find his replacement sooner rather than later. Gabriel Jesus is ready and waiting, but whether he can perform regularly at Aguero’s level remains to be seen.

As mentioned, Kane has been Aguero’s biggest rival in the Premier League goal scoring charts for six seasons now and he would be the more than ideal candidate to take the Argentine’s spot.

There are a lot of options out there for Kane and now may finally be the time he moves on for the better of his own career. And with this said, perhaps City is the best option.
