Harry Kane Transfer Saga: Where Will the England Captain Head to Next, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain or Others?

Following the departure of Antonio Conte and Tottenham Hotspur swaying away from the UEFA Champions League spots in the English Premier League table, it is safe to say that the team in white will not be winning any major silverware for yet another season. Disappointment after disappointment like what happened in this current campaign not only angered the club’s desperate fans, but also had made the rumours of 29-year-old forward Harry Kane leaving his North London club grown to a new height, with French Ligue 1 reportedly joining the rat race to earn the signature of the prolific striker.

Turns 30 in July

Kane, who scored 25 goals in 42 appearances for Spurs this season, broken numerous goal scoring and contribution in the Premier League in recent months, namely becoming only the third player to score more than two centuries of goals, reaching the 250-goal contribution (Goals and assists) as well as surpassing the the late Jimmy Greaves as Tottenham Hotspur’s all-time leading goal scorer.

An international level, the Walthamstow-born Harry Kane had skippered the Three Lions to notable finishes in major tournaments, such as a fourth-placed finish in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, a third place in the 2018/2019 UEFA Nations League and a runner-up medal in the 2020 UEFA European Championship, in addition to overtaking Wayne Rooney as the country’s top scorer.

While these personal achievements and international honours certainly proved Harry Kane’s importance and pivotal role in club and country, it is likely that the forward will not be winning any trophies at this rate, especially when playing for a club like Tottenham Hotspur. Besides, with the striker’s contract ending at the end of the 2023/2024 Season and the player reaching 30 years of age this July, one can only imagine the England captain to strike a major move during the coming Summer transfer window.

Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich All in Pursuit of Harry Kane

For Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils and Thomas Tuchel’s Bavarians, their current respective centre-forwards of Wout Weghorst, Anthony Martial and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting certainly cannot meet the usual high standards that the two powerhouses in football had set in the past. On the other hand, PSG is likely to be dealt with a blow of the exit of World Cup-winning captain Lionel Messi in the summer, following strong rumours about him returning to his boyhood club Barcelona.

Personally as an England international and Premier League veteran, it would be tough to imagine Harry Kane playing elsewhere in Europe, unless Daniel Levy is reluctant to sell the 2018 FIFA World Cup Golden Boot winner to Spurs’ rivals in the league. If that is the case, it is more than likely that we will see Harry Kane wearing a club jersey outside England at the start of the next season, and fans can bet traditional strong teams in Europe are eager to sign him, especially Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich which disappointingly bowed out from the UEFA Champions League this season.

On the other hand, should Tottenham Hotspur willing to send the 29-year-old to a fellow Premier League team, Manchester United would definitely be a preferred destination, as the Red Devils could make use of a no. 9 like Kane and the latter will find no issues settling into a dressing room that is filled with his England teammates, namely Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, etc. A possible English trio upfront in Manchester United could also help Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions to finally bring home football glories in major tournaments.
