PSG Manager’s Perplexing Push for English Striker Kane
In a mind-boggling twist of events, regardless of who manages to take the reins from Galtier as coach, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is relentlessly pushing for the club to secure the signature of none other than the esteemed England captain, Harry Kane. It has been reported by ‘Le Parisien’ that both Real Madrid and Manchester United have been forced to abandon their pursuit of the talented striker due to exorbitant price demands.
Harry Kane’s name has been persistently circulating in the ever-active rumour mill this summer. Astonishingly, the Tottenham Hotspurs captain has endured a trophyless spell at the club for a staggering ten years now, leading many to speculate that this could finally be the pivotal moment when he decides to venture elsewhere.
Initially, it seemed that Real Madrid had set their sights on the striker, potentially as a replacement for the indomitable Karim Benzema. The Spanish giants were among the few clubs capable of meeting Tottenham’s audacious £100 million asking price for their revered captain. However, talks appear to have come to a halt as Real Madrid recently unveiled Joselu as their new ‘9’, rendering Kane obsolete in their plans.
Manchester United also expressed interest in securing Kane’s services. However, Tottenham’s shrewd chairman Daniel Levy adamantly refused to entertain the idea of selling their prized asset to a Premier League rival. Consequently, both clubs now find themselves out of the picture. Instead, the ‘Daily Mail’ reports that a new frontrunner has emerged in the form of PSG.
According to both English outlet ‘Daily Mail’ and French newspaper ‘Le Parisien’, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is personally leading the charge in pursuing the 30-year-old striker. PSG finds itself embroiled in a battle of wills with their star player Kylian Mbappe, who adamantly refuses to extend his contract beyond 2025. This has prompted the club to explore potential avenues to sell Mbappe this summer, in order to avoid losing him on a free transfer next year. If successful, this transfer would undoubtedly provide PSG with the financial means to meet Kane’s exorbitant price tag.
Interestingly, PSG presents what could be Kane’s best opportunity to secure coveted silverware before he brings his illustrious career to a close. The French team lifted their 11th Ligue 1 title this season, despite enduring some struggles in the Champions League.
