PSG are reportedly interested in signing Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, attempting to hijack Bayern Munich’s move for the England striker..
Although Kane’s contract at Spurs runs until 2024, top clubs are already circling the striker, with Manchester United also said to be eyeing him up for a move.
While Spurs are confident they can tie their vice-captain down to a new deal, the player’s ambitions may lead him elsewhere.
Kane has his sights set on breaking Alan Shearer’s Premier League goal-scoring record, but he may also be tempted to seek success on the continent if he believes it will bring him closer to winning trophies.
Bayern Munich have approached Spurs but PSG’s interest in Kane dates back to 2021, when they made their intentions known to the player as he looked to leave Spurs.
One of the factors that PSG could use to their advantage is Kane’s proximity to London, where he currently resides.
The club could lean on the fact that Eurostar links and short flights mean that he could easily commute to and from the French capital, potentially even staying in London and travelling for training and matches.
While Pochettino has since departed PSG, the club’s interest in Kane has not waned. In fact, the striker could even be reunited with another former manager if Jose Mourinho takes over at PSG.
Mourinho helped transform Kane from a pure number nine into one of the world’s most complete forwards during their time together at Spurs, with the striker winning the Premier League Playmaker Award at the end of the 2020/21 season.
While Spurs are confident they can hold onto their star player, Kane’s desire to win trophies may lead him elsewhere.
If PSG make a move for Kane, the club’s former managers and the striker’s proximity to London could give them a slight advantage over other suitors.
