The English Premier League season is coming to an end and quickly! As we approach the end of the 2020/2021 season, we start to see teams making moves and transactions. While some teams right now are focusing on the primary needs, meaning what contracts to extend, some others are looking elsewhere.
In the last 24 hours though, one of England’s top teams was hit with some bad news. Are you ready?
Harry Kane has told Tottenham he wants to leave and would like his future resolved ahead of Euro 2020, Goal can confirm 😯 pic.twitter.com/AeYhrV5Fy7

You are looking at this correctly, absolutely!
The Tottenham Hotspur forward has expressed to his teammates and the club that he wishes to leave this summer. Harry Kane has hit a bit of a wall at Tottenham and even more so as the club was torn to pieces at the expense of the former coach, Jose Mourinho.
As a Manchester United Fan, who dealt with the Mourinho effect, I can totally understand where Harry is mentally.
For Harry Kane, it probably doesn’t help that the only title run they have had was under the Mauricio Pochettino management which unfortunately concluded with his sacking from the club 2 years ago. So where will Harry go next? Allow me to share with you the places I can see Harry likely landing at.
A New Start!
Bayern Munich – Bundesliga
While nothing has been rumored yet for Harry Kane to go to Germany, there is potential of this happening.
Robert Lewandowski is currently at 32 years of age but the main man at this mega-club. At 32 years of age, he is currently the sole forward for Munich leaving him with a lot of responsibility and no help in the horizon.
For Bayern Munich, there are several changes to be expected and one of them is already happening. As you may know, Hansi Flick is currently on his way to take over as head coach for the German National team, this forced Bayern Munich to make a decision for a new manager. Bayern have come to terms and have gone after Julian Nagelsman as their new man. With that said, Nagelsman is likely going to want to provide Lewandowski with a secondary weapon upfront. Get what I’m saying?
Imagine a duo-threat of Lewandowski and Kane upfront for Bayern?
Manchester United – English Premier League
You can already sort of imagine the smile in my face as I write this.
However, I have to be realistic here and come down to my senses. While I would love seeing Kane join Manchester United, I think this is highly unlikely.
One good thing is, this transfer may not be fully out of the realm of things as there are ways to make this happen. Tottenham will be in a rebuild process as the 2021/2022 campaign rolls in, including a new head coach. As that new coach gets determined, there will be needs for virtually every position and this is where United may have a leg up.
Manchester United could potentially do a deal where they offload Daniel James and Fred over to a team that would truly need their services immediately.
Other Likely “New Homes”
Real Madrid – La Liga
In my honest opinion, this is easily the most likely landing spot for Kane.
Kane would be a breath of fresh air to a Bernabeu fanbase craving series talent back at their club. Real Madrid is another club currently that will need a series ramp up.
Just this past weekend, we learned that Zidane announced he would be moving on from Real Madrid which will create excitement for who that next man up may be. In addition to new management, it is almost inevitable that new talent will come across.
With Benzema being the lone attacking man at Madrid and new management coming on board, Kane is a perfect target.
Paris St. Germain – Ligue 1
Another highly likely opportunity here.
We know that PSG is potentially going to be losing Kyliann Mbappe as Real Madrid are making him a priority signing this offseason.
In addition to that, Harry Kane’s previous history with Mauricio Pochettino was a successful one of manager and player in sync with a clear vision for the game. Should PSG potentially offload Kylian Mbappe, they will be in a position where they will urgently need a serious striker upfront.
