England captain Harry Kane has been at Tottenham Hotspur since joining the Academy in 2004 after being released by Arsenal. He made his Spurs Premier League debut in August 2012 having gained experience during loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich City and Leicester City.
Since making his first-team debut, Kane has scored 136 times for Tottenham Hotspur in 198 appearances. He has also scored 32 goals in 45 matches for England as he looks to become England’s top scorer in the future. Wayne Rooney currently holds the record with 53, with Kane behind Bobby Charlton, Gary Lineker, Jimmy Greaves and Michael Owen on the list.
Kane has yet to win any silverware while playing for Tottenham Hotspur, he has finished as a runner-up in the Football League Cup and the Champions League. If he wants to win some trophies as a player, he may have to leave Spurs.
Here is a quick look at the teams in the running to sign Kane should he become available:
Harry Kane’s Next Club: Real Madrid @ 9/2 Paddy Power
Real Madrid have Karim Benzema as their number one striker, but if Kane becomes available, they would be crazy not to put a bid in for him. It looks more and more likely that Gareth Bale will be leaving the club in the summer, and Kane would be a perfect fit at the Bernabeu. He can score goals and he is a born leader, and if he joins Real Madrid his chances of winning trophies will increase considerably.
Harry Kane’s Next Club: Manchester United @ 11/2 Paddy Power
Manchester United need an out-an-out striker, that is clearly obvious. United always seem to be linked with signing Kane, but nothing has ever come from it. United look better in midfield at the moment, but they do not have a player who can score 25-30 goals a season up front. Kane would definitely fit that mould, but whether Spurs would sell him to a Premier League rival is yet to be seen.
Harry Kane’s Next Club: Barcelona @ 12/1 Paddy Power
Tottenham Hotspur are more likely to sell Kane to a foreign side, so Barcelona and Real Madrid probably have a head start on Premier League clubs. Would Kane look out of place playing alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezzman? I don’t think he would, Kane needs to be playing alongside the best players in the world if he is ever to be classed as a great player. Staying with Spurs and carrying them along, will not get him that reputation. He needs to be playing on the biggest stage. There is no bigger stage than playing at the Camp Nou with Messi and company.
Harry Kane’s Next Club: Manchester City @ 14/1 Paddy Power
Sergio Aguero could be heading for the exit door at Manchester City, so buying Harry Kane would be a logical move. I’m not saying they are the same player, but not many strikers will have a goal record like the Argentinian. But by signing Kane, they will have a player who knows how to score and is familiar with the league. You wouldn’t have to worry about a settling in period. City fans would probably be less upset if they replaced Aguero with Kane, rather than promote a youngster or sign a foreign player no-one has ever heard of. The only really stumbling block, is will Spurs sell to another English club?
