Kylian Mbappe (25-Paris Saint-Germain) transfer rumors are everywhere. From a possible stay at PSG to a Real Madrid-Manchester United-Chelsea move, the speculation is nonstop. But alongside Mbappe, the transfer of another highly sought-after striker, Harry Kane (30, Tottenham Hotspur), has been relatively quiet. There have even been local reports of Tottenham staying put.
England’s Daily Mail reported on Thursday (ET) that Kane will stay at Tottenham. “Tottenham have refused to allow Kane to move to Manchester United, with United having given up on signing him,” the publication reported. The biggest obstacle to Kane’s move is chairman Daniel Levy. “Levy has made it clear to English Premier League (EPL) teams that he will never sell Kane,” the report added.
Kane has been the subject of several transfer rumors over the years. Prior to his new home in Ealing Holland, he was on Manchester City’s radar and was strongly linked with United last winter. With a contract at Tottenham that runs until June 2024, there was a lot of speculation that a move could happen if he wanted to. Tottenham were also thought to be realistic about allowing Kane to leave sooner rather than later in order to pocket the transfer fee before the Bosman rule kicked in.안전놀이터
However, interest in Kane has noticeably cooled recently. It seems that Levy has decided to delay the move. Also, despite being one of Europe’s top goalscorers, Kane’s age – he’s in his 30s – seems to be an obstacle. Real Madrid, another potential destination for Kane, are not in the running, and PSG’s “stay put” on Mbappe complicates matters.
If Kane stays at Tottenham, the ‘Son-Ke duo’ will continue next season. Tottenham will have to rely on the Son-Kane golden pairing as they have in the past.
