Harry Kane: PSG or Man City? 2021-06-23 오전 1:02:00

Harry Kane, one of the most important players in England, is considering leaving the team this summer. He is currently playing for Tottenham Hotspur. Tottenham Hotspur is one of the BIG 6 teams in the EPL, but Kane wants more. He wants a trophy whether it is the Champions League or the domestic League trophy. It has been 13 years since the last trophy was lifted by Tottenham Hotspur. Therefore, Harry Kane is looking forward to moving to a team he can lift a trophy.

Harry Kane made an impressive achievement this season. He scored 23 goals and made 14 assists, being the top player for both sections. Kane won double with Golden Boot (an award that is presented each season to the leading goal scorer) and Playmaker award (presented to the player who has made the most assists). Harry Kane is not only a goal-getter but a playmaker. Thus, he is highly valued. According to Transfermarkt, Kane is valued at £ 106.00m. However, Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham, requires £ 150.00m to let go of Harry Kane. Since Kane is signed to run for the spurs until 2024 and he is a key player, Levy wouldn’t let go of Kane easily.

Although every club wants Kane, only the ones with money can afford a star player like Kane. Manchester City, Manchester United, Paris Saint-German, and Chelsea FC are the clubs with a strong link. Among these teams, Man City and PSG are the teams with the most possibility. Both Man City and PSG are owned by rich individuals. The owner of Man City is Sheikh Mansour, an Emirati politician, who is one of the richest men globally. The owner of PSG is Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, ruler of Qatar, who is also a very wealthy man. Both clubs are referred to as an oil club with oil money, wealth that has been acquired through the petroleum industry.

First of all, the motive for Man City signing Kane is the absence of a striker. Sergio Aguero, one of the legends and a veteran striker, transferred to FC Barcelona this summer. Another striker Gabriel Jesus is not showing a persistent performance due to frequent injury. Harry Kane is an enticing choice for Man City. Man City is also a great option for Kane since Man City won the 2020/21 champions. Man City is a club that can fulfill Kane’s ambition for the trophy. The City had bid £100.00m with the possibility of Gabriel Jesus in a swap deal.


Another option for Harry Kane is PSG. Paris Saint-German is a big club that has clinched nine Ligue 1 championships and one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. This can fulfill Kane’s ambition for the trophy. Also, another favorable point for PSG is the manager. Mauricio Pochettino who is the current head coach of Paris Saint-Germain was once the coach for Kane in spurs. Thus, Kane can expect that it would be easy to cope with the new team’s tactic and position since he has already played under Pochettino. There is a high possibility that Kylian Mbappé, a key striker of PSG, will leave for Real Madrid. Hence, Kane signing Is essential for PSG. Kane is a favorable replacement option for Pochettino. Also, PSG is one of the very few clubs that can afford Kane.

All eyes are focused on Kane’s destination. However, one undeniable fact is that the deal wouldn’t be easy with a stubborn Tottenham chairman Levy. Clubs that are looking for Kane will have to shell out millions of pounds.
