Kane at PSG mentioned in Mbappe-Haaland ‘chess game’ as Hoddle admits Spurs exit could happen
The Tottenham legend, who has played for and coached the North London giants, claims the star striker has earned the right to consider a move elsewhere
Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle admits Harry Kane could leave the club this summer, and believes it is possible that a “chess” transfer involving Manchester City, Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland could lead the star striker to Paris Saint-Germain.
A big move is expected in the next window, and Kane’s name is very present in this pot, as Spurs struggle to realize his personal ambition.
Hoddle says the England captain has earned the right to consider a move elsewhere.
What was said?
Former Tottenham Hoddle player and coach told the Standard Evening: “I don’t know if it’s in Tottenham’s hands, I think it’s Harry Kane’s decision.
“No one would blame Harry Kane if he moved now. If he said ‘I’m going to get silverware somewhere else’ and the right offer was there, he is the one who will make that decision and Spurs will have to get the best. It would be a big blow to the team.
“There are only a few clubs that will be able to afford Harry, that’s his problem right now.
“There could be a game of chess – if Haaland goes to Man City and Mbappe goes to Real Madrid, maybe there is an opening at PSG? I wouldn’t like to see him at PSG, I would like to see him stay at Tottenham, but I wouldn’t blame him if he went elsewhere. “
Will Kane stay at Spurs?
The 27-year-old is linked with a contract in north London until 2024, having remained staunchly loyal to the club. However, it is undeniable that a man with 217 Spurs goals has yet to get his hands on major silverware.
The Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on April 25 could end that sterile run, but it remains to be seen whether the outcome of this game will dictate where Kane will play next season.
“In an ideal world I know Harry loves Tottenham, he wants to stay at Tottenham and win trophies,” Hoddle said. in the modern history of the club and then say that it is a springboard to more success?
“Do not forget [manager Jose] Mourinho did it to Manchester United with the League Cup and Chelsea, it was the first trophy he won. It all depends on this game, really.
“Spurs have come to a crossroads. The League Cup is a crossroads for them. Okay, that doesn’t get them into the Champions League, but winning some silver will give everyone a shot. thumb and give Jose a stepping stone to go from there.
“For a lot of different reasons maybe Harry Kane stays, maybe Jose is leaning on something, Tottenham’s season comes down to this League Cup final. It’s a huge game for them. . “
