The move is because he wants to win trophies, something Tottenham have struggled with for some time.
Kane will head to Euro 2020 with the eyes of the world on him. He is a key part of the England team that is fancied to go well at the tournament. Those using Euro 2020 betting offers to place bets on England or on Kane to be top scorer at the tournament will be hoping that his off-field problems do not follow him on England duty.
But when that tournament is over with, where will Harry Kane play next year? He has three main places to play in England, including staying at Spurs.
Staying at Tottenham?
Although Kane wants to leave Tottenham, there is no guarantees that this will actually happen. He has cited the lack of trophies that the club have won and has been a losing finalist twice in recent years for Spurs, including in the Champions League.
With no full-time manager in charge of the club right now, a squad that looks in desperate need of investment and no Champions League football next season, there is not a lot to be excited about at Tottenham right now. Add into to that the loss of Kane, and this club could find themselves a long way off where they need to be next season.
Joining the Champions Manchester City?
Anyone who has kept up to speed with the latest sports news will know that Manchester City have comfortably won the Premier League title this season. They have a chance to add the Champions League trophy to that at the end of the month.
If you want to win, where else is better to go than the team that have a great recent history of winning big competitions. Manchester City have played without a true striker in some games this season, simply because they don’t have one good enough to get in their starting eleven.
Kane would change that and add even more quality to their line up.
The Striker Manchester United Need?
Had Manchester United not just signed Edinson Cavani to a contract extension, the rumours surrounding Kane moving up to play for them would have been a lot stronger. However, Cavani is into his 30s and not the long term plan, whereas Kane would be.
On paper, United need a top quality striker, which they don’t have at the minute, they have a number of very good options, but no one that can be described as one of the best in the world.
If they see this as the most important area to fix this summer, don’t discount them making a bid to bring Harry Kane to the club. Given the other strikers at the club, it is likely United will only bring someone in that could really improve them, like Kane would, so it is likely Kane or nothing for them.
