The Harry Kane soap opera continues to unravel the daisy chain of European football. With Tottenham failing to qualify for the Champions League, the England captain is reportedly looking for a new destination that will allow him to continue competing at the highest level?
Rumours of his departure are growing and Tottenham, who are trembling at the prospect of him leaving next year for free (his contract expires in June 2024), are already beginning to look favourably on his exit this summer.
Kane‘s age, who will turn 30 on July 28, and his extremely high transfer price, which has been valued at more than 100 million euros, have closed the door on Real Madrid (but not definitively), who are still waiting for Kylian Mbappe… and are convinced that they can only hold out with Joselu and the other options that Carlo Ancelotti is planning thanks to the variety of his squad.
The ‘disappointment’ of Kane, who dreams of playing for Real Madrid, has led to a potential other move in the summer transfer window. Another team is already on the horizon for the Englishman: Bayern Munich. According to Sky Sports, the English striker could join the Bavarian side, who would offer a fee of between 70 and 80 million euros, something that is far from the expectations of Daniel Levy, an intractable negotiator, who is not going to let his star player be sold so easily.
Bayern, despite being a financial giant, have always been known for not investing heavily in players (there are always exceptions such as Lucas Hernandez and Matthijs De Ligt), but after a difficult year, which led to the departure of Oliver Kahn and Salihamidzic, it could lead to a change in the roadmap that has been in place for many years.
It is also worth remembering that Bayern did not sign any real no.9 with the departure of Robert Lewandowski last summer and this could be their chance to secure the services of a world ‘top’ player. Because the strikers for whom they paid the most money? were wingers. Leroy Sane (49 million to Manchester City in the 2020-21 season) and Sadio Mane (32 million to Liverpool in the 2022-23 season).
Harry Kane, the most complete no.9 on the market
The English player is the striker who would be the best fit for Real Madrid. Kane is the most similar striker to Benzema. He knows how to hold possession with great intelligence, he has a unique vision… and, on top of all this, he is a natural finisher.
Thirty-two goals and five assists. These are the numbers of the English striker in his last season at Tottenham, which has not been enough to help him achieve his goals. Kane (30) was eight goals behind Haaland (36) in the Premier League (with two penalties fewer)… but in the Champions League he has only scored one goal in eight games for his team.
