Paris Saint-Germain is prepared to move in for Harry Kane should Kylian Mbappe depart this summer.
Reports circulated from El Chinguito confirmed last week that Mbappe is likely to play for Spanish giants Real Madrid next season.
Kane’s departure won’t come easy, however, as Tottenham owner Daniel Levy is ready to play hardball and do anything to deny Kane from moving, especially to a Premier League rival. Kane’s contract expires in 2024.
Spurs placed a hefty £200m fee on the England striker last season in response to the player’s links to Manchester United. That fee has now been reduced to £120m, according to The Athletic.
“Obviously I get asked this question a lot,” Kane said in response to an Instagram Q & A last April with former Spurs player and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp last season.
“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.”
Should Kane move to a bigger club?
While Kane might be happier staying at Tottenham and winning a trophy for Spurs, he is desperate to play in the Champions League next season.
He nearly won the 2019 Champions League under former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino who’s now the coach at PSG.
With Pochettino at the helm, PSG think they have a good shot at beating United and Manchester City to the Spurs ace.
Kane is currently the Premier League’s top scorer with 19 goals. He’s scored 20 or more goals for five consecutive seasons. He’s also registered 13 assists, making him one of a handful of players in Europe’s top five leagues this season with double figures.
