Man Utd set to miss out signing of £200,000 a-week forward

By | April 13, 2021

Paris Saint-Germain head-coach Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly touched base with Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane over a possible transfer in the summer.

With Spurs facing the prospect of a 13th consecutive campaign without silverware, as well as a year outside of the Champions League, Harry Kane has supposedly informed the team of his desire to depart from the club if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

The 27-year-old is believed to be wanted by both Man City and Man Utd ahead of the reopening of the transfer window, however, with his Spurs contract set to run until 2024, the Lilywhites can realistically demand a nine-figure sum for the England skipper.

Financial powerhouses PSG would likely be able to splash the money for his siganture, and French outlet TF1 reports that Pochettino has contacted his former forward to gauge his interest in a switch to Ligue 1 giants.

However, the report claims that any bids for Kane would hinge on whether Kylian Mbappe depart from the club or not, with the World Cup-winning Frenchman yet to extend his contract beyond 2022 and supposedly on the radar of Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Kane has managed to found back of the net 29 times and set up 16 more across all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s team this season, with his 19 Premier League goals seeing him sit atop the goalscoring charts alongside Mohamed Salah.
