PSG have entered the race for Harry Kane’s signature, joining Manchester United and Chelsea in their pursuit of the Tottenham star.
With Kane’s contract set to expire in a year, several top European clubs have expressed interest in securing his services, adding a twist to his potential transfer.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with Kane as manager Erik ten Hag aims to bolster his attacking options and compete at the top level.
While Real Madrid and Bayern Munich were initially mentioned as potential destinations, recent reports suggest they have shifted their focus to other targets.
Rival London club Chelsea has reportedly expressed interest in signing Kane, potentially reuniting him with former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
However, it remains uncertain whether Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would be willing to negotiate with direct rivals.
Meanwhile, in Tottenham, there is a growing concern that if the club fails to part ways with their record goal scorer this summer, they may lose him on a free transfer next year.
Recent discussions between Kane and Levy might provide some hope regarding the player’s long-term commitment to the club.
However, there is an external threat for Tottenham to contend with as PSG has reportedly started laying the groundwork for a move for Kane.
The Ligue 1 champions, currently exploring new managerial options, are eager to bolster their striking options following the high-profile departure of Lionel Messi and potential exits of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
While Victor Osimhen and Randal Kolo Muani are also considered options for PSG, their interest in Kane appears to be gaining momentum.
It remains to be seen whether PSG can successfully negotiate a deal for Kane, given the failed attempts by other clubs in the past.
Alternatively, they may consider approaching him on a free transfer next summer, but competition from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich would pose a challenge.
Tottenham now faces a crucial decision: whether to risk losing their top scorer on a free transfer or cash in on him this summer. The outcome of this decision will have significant implications for the club’s future.
