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.
