When an athlete says he came to the club, he cheered since he was a child, and pleasing the fans is mostly a cliché. Harry Kane doesn’t even need to say. He grew up a 15-minute drive from the old Tottenham Stadium, most of his family members are Tottenham fans, he came to the club at the age of 11.
16 years later, after 336 appearances and 221 goals, he realized that he might never realize his dream of winning a trophy in the club of his life. He participated in the Champions League finals, twice in the League Cup finals, once in the Premier League and finished second, but since 2017, Tottenham’s performance in the championship has deteriorated year by year. He is only seventh this season.
Kane no longer hides what he wants to leave, but there is no sign that his wish will come true this summer. The pandemic has destroyed the football economy, almost no one can afford a nine-figure transfer fee, and Tottenham Hotspur coach Daniel Levy is a notoriously tough negotiator, just like Luca Modri Qi as I felt 9 years ago. Manchester City can set aside 120 million euros, as much as Tottenham Hotspur requested, but maybe even this number is not enough, because Levi does not want to leave his superstar to his league opponents and there is no reason to rush for it. Sold because of Kane’s contract until 2024. .
Kane is now facing the European Championship, he will play in the D group as the captain of the England team against Croatia, the Czech Republic and Scotland. The British have high hopes for their national team, especially the semi-finals and finals will be played at the avid Wembley Stadium. Their biggest star is at a turning point in his career. In the first stage of a transfer saga that may last the entire summer, realizing that the exciting games of the European Cup cannot increase your chances of a transfer, because few people can afford it anyway. Affordable, and possible harm may ruin everything about him.
In the new season of the strongest league in August, every club eager for Kane will try to bring him in as early as possible and prepare with him. Manchester City, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and other Kane-related teams are unlikely to rest during the European Cup.
Kane has a career season and one of the best seasons in Premier League history. He scored 23 goals and contributed 14 assists, thus winning the championship’s top scorer and assistant award. He averaged 3.9 shots per game, ranking first in the entire championship and fifth in the list of players with the most opportunities per game (0.4).
These numbers are the key reason Kane wants to leave, because players with this effect usually win trophies or fight for them to the last minute, but Tottenham Hotspur was defeated by Europa’s Egypt in the 16th round of the FA Cup Futton was eliminated by Dynamo in the quarterfinals of the knockout league, and only ranked seventh in the Premier League. Only in the League Cup did he reach the final, where he lost to Manchester City 1-0.
In short, the results of Tottenham Hotspur are too weak for what Kane has to offer, and his time is getting less and less. It is rare for a player like him to have no trophy on the threshold of his 28th birthday, and it is normal for him to start making up as soon as possible.
For a long time, Kane has been the goal of a club bigger than Tottenham Hotspur, but he did not show his desire to leave because he hopes that the trophy will arrive without changing the environment. In the past seven years, he has performed very well, scoring 221 goals in 336 appearances for the club, becoming the top scorer of the Premier League three times, and the top scorer of the World Cup once. But since their debut in August 2011, Tottenham have won second and third in the Premier League twice, losing twice in the League Cup finals, losing once in the Champions League final and three times in the FA Cup semi-finals. Lose.
After experiencing this season’s failure and Mourinho’s dismissal, he realized that the club faces more uncertainty and his patience is coming to an end.
“I don’t want to regret at the end of my career. I want to be the best version of myself,” he said in a large interview with Gary Neville, before adding, “I gave the club 16 many years of my life, so I Hope we can have one. Good and honest dialogue about the whole situation.”
The question now is who can afford it. Of course Manchester City wants him, and Manchester United is also a goal. Among clubs outside of England, he has the closest links with Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.
