Planet Soccer: Harry Kane or a man and his future

There’s Patrice Bergeron and the Bruins, Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes, Dodo and The Bye Bye. But there’s also Harry Kane and Tottenham Hotspur.

Aside from a few early-career loans, the 29-year-old Englishman has played his entire professional career with Spurs.

He could also become history’s top scorer if he moves the ropes against Manchester City on Sunday.

In fact, he is level on points with Jimmy Greaves with 266 goals in all competitions. Kane joined Greaves, who played in the 1960s, with a goal against Fulham last Monday, his 199th in 300 Premier League games for Spurs.

The following

When we talk to you about the England team’s captain, it’s because he only has one year left on his contract. In the summer of 2024 it will be as free as air.

Spurs almost lost him two summers ago when Manchester City made a £100million (C$165.2million) bid, but they resisted.

They are therefore back in a slightly too familiar situation, risking losing the one who has been the face and soul of the club for ten years.

The problem ? The north London suburban club currently sit fifth in the table and are unable to reach the top or win any trophies.

We have to go back to 2016 to find Spurs’ best season in the last decade when they finished runners-up in the Premier League. Relay stuck between two third places. The team has only reached the Champions League final once (2018-19).

Of interest

Kane, who has the Spurs rooster tattooed on his heart, doesn’t want fewer titles to be won. To make an analogy with hockey — yes, we know football fans hate it — it’s like when Raymond Bourque won the Stanley Cup in Colorado.

We’re positive he was wearing Bruins underwear for his stunt.

In short, Harry Kane may represent an attacker in the prime of his life, he’s not getting any younger and he wants to pick up silverware. Spurs have consistently had a more than decent squad year after year, they’ve only finished outside the top 10 once in 15 years, but they can’t guarantee them a fight at the top.

And that’s where Manchester United come in, who are looking for a top striker next summer. And in Germany, Bayern Munich beckons. Munich have won the last ten Bundesliga seasons, a tempting spur.

So Spurs will have a big decision to make. Are you trying to sign him long-term or accept a transfer this summer so as not to lose him for nothing the following year?


According to reports from Sky Sports, Tottenham and Kane’s agent have already met twice, a sign of a desire to come to terms.

As reported by the Italian branch of the sports channel, these meetings have led to discussions about the attacker’s long-term future. We would therefore potentially want him to end his Spurs career.

It is interesting that the club, for its part, denies that these meetings took place. It may just be a way to hide his game to avoid negotiations in the public square.

As absurd as it sounds, even if Spurs’ future depends on keeping Kane, they might make a few acquisitions first to convince him they’re serious about staying for years to come.

It’s a situation that will certainly be interesting to follow, as will the course of the side who are set to play the Champions League knockout stages against AC Milan in the coming weeks.



Goalkeeper of FC Bayern Munich new manual, was lucky in misfortune when he suffered a serious skiing accident in Italy on December 9th, shortly after the German retirement from the World Cup. According to the picture, he was lucky that the rescue helicopter was nearby because it was his ski boot that held his leg after severe open fractures on the tibia and fibula, which led to heavy bleeding. The 36-year-old goalkeeper faces a long recovery and will not be able to move his leg until at least the end of February.


Juventus could be banned from European competitions for at least a year due to far more serious legal issues. The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) is investigating secret wage agreements between the club and certain players and the inflation of certain transfers in order to falsify capital gains.


FIFA released its Global Transfer Market Report 2022 this week and it was revealed that 2022 saw an all-time high of 71,002 international transfers completed. Of these, 20,209 were made in men’s professional football, an increase of 11.6% in 2021. In total, 17,291 players of 183 different nationalities changed clubs in 2022. 21,764 transfers involved professional players and 49,238 were aimed at amateurs.
