Top Bookmakers to bet on Football Transfers
Kane Next Club Predictions
The Spurs striker has a 'gentleman's agreement' in place to leave the club - and has even formally asked to go.
Victory over Leicester in the final matchweek means Tottenham finished 7th in the Premier League and will play the new Europa Conference League play-off round. For a world-class striker like Kane, that is simply not good enough.
The Tottenham talisman, who signed a six-year deal with the club that runs until 2024, has enjoyed another outstanding campaign, with a combined 38 goals and assists in 34 Premier League outings.
With trophies looking further away than ever, and Kane nearing his 28th birthday, he has decided he needs to leave the club. He wants a move done prior to the start of Euro 2020.
Any move for Kane is expected to fetch well in excess of £100million, with some reports suggesting Daniel Levy will demand nearer to £150m. Despite that price, there will be plenty of big clubs willing to snap him up.
Manchester City have emerged as the early frontrunners for the England skipper with Sergio Aguero ending his trophy-laden spell with the club. Manchester United and Chelsea also linked with a big-money swoop for the 27-year-old.
Where will Harry Kane go?
A player of Kane’s quality deserves to be winning the biggest trophies in world football but Spurs don't want to sell Harry Kane, especially to a Premier League rival. Anyway, Kane would prefer to remain in England and, honestly, only PSG look able to satisfy a £120-150M demand this summer, unless Bayern Munich sell Robert Lewandowski (extremely unlikely)
Manchester City - 11/10
Bookmakers expect Man City to acquire a top number 9 this summer and the shortlist include three names - Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane. The Tottenham forward is best suited for Pep Guardiola's style of play. He would provide a massive goal return but in addition to that he has the technical and tactical prowess to drop deep and involve himself in the build-up phase of play. So, it's realistic to think that Man City's #1 target this summer will be Harry Kane.
Update: The Sun report that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has given Harry Kane the green light to join Manchester City in a £160million deal.
That would smash the record fee paid by an English club for a football player – currently held by Manchester UTD who signed Paul Pogba from Juventus for £89million in 2016.
The report also adds that the England captain would be given a contract worth £400,000-a-week at Man City. As a result, the odds for Harry Kane to City have been slashed to 4/7 with Boylesports (from 11/10).
Manchester UTD - 16/1
Manchester United’s need is not as glaring as Man City’s, after the evergreen Edinson Cavani extended his Old Trafford stay. Furthermore, the Red Devils seem to have their sights set on a big-money move for Jadon Sancho this summer. Betfair have Man UTD 7/2 to sign Kane (was 7/2 until few weeks ago) but we believe there's better value elsewhere.
Chelsea - 18/1
Chelsea, meanwhile, have heavily invested on Timo Werner last season but they are looking for a more prolific striker after the German’s struggles this term. The Blues are reportedly willing to offer Tottenham Tammy Abraham and Kepa Arrizabalaga as well as a sizeable sum of money in an attempt to sign the England international.
PSG - 25/1
A move to PSG would see Kane reunited with ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and form a terrific attacking trio alonside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The French heavyweights, who come up short in Champions League once again this season, are expected to sell Mauro Icardi and send Moise Kean back to Everton. Hence, a move for Harry Kane is more than likely.
Real Madrid 28/1 & Barcelona 50/1
Real Madrid (28/1 with Paddy Power) have Karim Benzema in that role and are monitoring Erling Haaland's situation while Barcelona (50/1 with Mansion Bet) look likely to sign Sergio Aguero on a free transfer this summer. Of course, with the club financially struggling due to COVID-19 and Messi staying at the Camp Nou in 2021/22, another heavy contract is not sustainable.
The Best of the Rest
Bayern Munich (50/1 with Boylesports) have Robert Lewandowski, who has recentry broken Gerd Muller's record in the Bundesliga, and it looks impossibile to see the Pole striker away from Munich next season.
Juventus (50/1 with William Hill) have very few chance to sign Kane even if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Turin while Liverpool (50/1 with Paddy Power) do not seem to be interested in making a such expensive acquisition.
