Chelsea's swap offer for Harry Kane, as Man City & United stances revealed

21 May 2021 01:45

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all ‘in the market’ for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who has expressed his desire to leave the north London club this summer.

Kane has grown frustrated at Spurs this season, with the club getting further and further way from challenging for major honours and increasingly failing to meet the player’s personal ambitions.

His record of 162 goals in 230 Premier League appearances since the start of the 2014/15 season alone tells its own story and he has returned to his best form in 2020/21 after putting two difficult years affected by ankle injuries behind him.

With United, City and Chelsea all looking for a new striker this summer, timing could be perfect, although the biggest obstacle will be breaking Tottenham’s refusal to sell.

Since losing Dimitar Berbatov to United in 2008, Spurs have made a habit of selling their biggest stars abroad when the time comes, rather than to domestic rivals, including the transfers of both Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

However, Kane is widely thought to prefer to stay in the Premier League.
