Man United and Man City will reportedly have to shell out a massive transfer fee of £150m if they want to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur. A product of the Spurs youth academy, England international has developed into one of the most lethal strikers in the game over the last half-a-decade or so.
Harry is the Lilywhites’ second-highest goalscorer of all time with 209 strikes to his name from 319 games. Kane has also unleashed his playmaking abilities in the ongoing season, emerging as Spurs MVP, bagging 21 goals and 14 assists from 32 matches in all tournaments.
And even though, the north London giants’ title challenge has faltered of late, the 27-year-old striker continues to go strong. The English centre-forward’s exploits campaign after season have made him an attractive prospect for both Man United and Man City, who could be in for a new centre-forward in the summer transfer window.
Indeed, Man United will need to strengthen their attacking unit as Edinson Cavani is only a stop-gap solution while Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood have largely been used out wide, whereas, Anthony Martial has failed to build on his promising last campaign.
Spurs have always maintained that Harry is not for sale. However, amid mounting financial pressures due to the pandemic coupled with the mortgage on their new stadium, Kane stays their biggest saleable asset. Chairman Daniel Levy, though, will not even enter into any discussions for an offer less than the £150m mentioned.
Apart from Harry Kane, both Man United and Man City have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund’s goalscoring machine Erling Haaland as well recently.
