Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly slapped a £150 million price tag on star man Harry Kane, as they look to ward off potential interest from both Manchester clubs.
After an injury-hit 2019/20 campaign, the 27-year-old has been back to his best this season, scoring 13 Premier League goals and providing 11 assists so far this term.
Alongside teammate Heung-Min Son, the England captain has been simply sensational with that destructive duo sparking a potential title bid from Spurs earlier this season.
However, after a dip in form in 2021, Jose Mourinho’s men are now scrambling for a top-four place, with rumours resurfacing once again that Kane may be seeking an exit from the club as he looks to try and secure his first piece of major silverware.
Amid such speculation, however, the Daily Mail have reported that Spurs owner Daniel Levy has set the player’s asking price at roughly £150m, in order to put off any interested parties, including Manchester United and Manchester City.
The striker is currently contracted to the club until 2024, meaning they are in no real rush to sell, particularly to a Premier League rival.
While Spurs have the potential to claim some silverware in the Carabao Cup final in April, as well as through the Europa League, the potential lack of Champions League football next season could leave Kane having to make a decision over his future.
If he were to leave, it looks as if both City and United are the most likely destinations, with both clubs in need of a real top class striker at present.
Pep Guardiola’s side look to be romping to a third Premier League title in four seasons, yet have done so without a recognised striker for much of the campaign, both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero having struggled with injury and illness throughout the season.
With Aguero entering into the final few months of his current contract, City are unsurprisingly on the lookout for a suitable replacement, with Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland just two of the names to have been mentioned.
Equally, at 33, even if the Argentine does stay at the Etihad for an extra year, there may still be a need to bring in a younger option.
As for United, Anthony Martial’s struggles this term have heightened the need for a world class striker, even with Edinson Cavani currently looking impressive.
Like Aguero, however, Cavani’s future is still uncertain as the club are yet to decide whether to extend his initial one-year deal, while at 34, he is not a long-term centre-forward option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
