Man United transfer boost after Harry Kane’s wife drops hint over 27-years old Tottenham exit

Published

on

Tottenham star Harry Kane may have played his final game for the club as he netted in Spurs’ 4-2 Premier League final day win away at Leicester City, at least if a social media post from his wife is anything to go by.

Kane’s goal at the King Power Stadium clinched the 2020/21 Premier League Golden Boot but he has already outlined his firm intention to leave Tottenham this summer.

The England captain has grown frustrated in north London and he has informed club chairman Daniel Levy he wants to be allowed to leave to compete for major trophies elsewhere.

Premier League rivals Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are rumoured to be tracking the 27-year-old’s exit situation and Kane’s wife has dropped a major hint that his departure is going ahead.

Kate Kane posted a video to her Instagram story showing her husband hugging team-mates, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli, after the final whistle at Leicester.

The trio have been vital to Spurs in recent seasons, including their run to the 2019 Champions League final, and her post will heighten the growing speculation that Kane’s future has been decided.

She captioned her story with a crying emoji, suggesting the hug was just as emotional as it appeared.

Alongside clinching his third Premier League top scorer award at the King Power, Kane also picked up the leading assist gong for the campaign, with a final total of 23 goals and 14 assists in 35 league games in 2020/21.

Kane confirmed in an interview with former United defender Gary Neville that he wants to meet with Levy before the start of Euro 2020 to discuss his future.

The striker indicated there is a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ in place between himself and Levy to allow him to leave after City’s rumoured interest was rejected back in 2020.

Kane agreed to remain at Spurs for the 2020/21 campaign with the condition of the club not blocking his exit if they failed to win a trophy or qualify for the Champions League in 2021.

Despite winning on the final day, Kane’s exploits have added some positivity to an underwhelming campaign.

After sacking former boss Jose Mourinho in April, interim head coach Ryan Mason could only steer the club to a seventh place Premier League finish and a spot in the newly created Europa Conference League next season.

Kane will lead Gareth Southgate’s side in this summer’s European Championships after winning the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia with six goals.

Barcelona do not want to sign Ronaldo, Lewandowski is the priority

Published

on

Following the meeting between Barcelona and super-agent Jorge Mendes on Monday, there has been non-stop speculation that the Catalans have been offered a chance to sign Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old is intent on securing an exit from Old Trafford this summer, just a year after returning to his old stomping ground.

The lack of Champions League football and the failure to sign any players so far have been cited as reasons for the Portuguese maverick to seek a move.

There have been talks with Chelsea, while a move to Bayern Munich has also been mooted. And following the meeting between his agent Mendes and Barcelona president Joan Laporta, it is being heavily speculated that Ronaldo has been offered to the Blaugrana.

However, as per a report from journalist David Bernabeu Reverter, there is zero chance that Barcelona will sign Ronaldo this summer.

The Spanish journalist claims that Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski remains the utmost priority for the Blaugrana this summer and their stance on the matter is non-negotiable.

Barça have been pursuing Lewandowski for months and even have a three-year contract agreement in place with the Poland captain.

However, Bayern Munich’s unwillingness to negotiate with the Catalans is proving to be a major hurdle.

In spite of that, the Blaugrana remain intent on signing Lewandowski and are not considering bringing in Ronaldo, as per the aforementioned update.

Despite being 37, Ronaldo remains in tremendous shape and scored 24 goals in all competitions last season. However, he has a rich history with Real Madrid.

The Portugal captain is Los Blancos’ all-time leading goalscorer and a club legend. So, it is hard to fathom that a move to Camp Nou can materialise.

As things stand, at least according to what David Bernabeu Reverter’s sources are stating, Lewandowski is the absolute priority for Barcelona.

Barcelona looking to renew La Masia midfielder before loaning him out

Published

on

A report from SPORT has offered a fresh update on the future of Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig. The 22-year-old finds himself out of favour at Camp Nou and is widely expected to depart this summer.

Puig has been courting serious interest from clubs in Spain and the rest of Europe. In particular,

Benfica and Fiorentina have been showing the strongest in signing the La Masia midfielder despite his struggles to establish a foothold in the Barça first-team setup.

Benfica have been long-term admirers of the Spaniard and continue to retain an interest. As for Fiorentina, they are already believed to be in advanced negotiations with Puig over a possible move this summer.

While it was largely expected that Barcelona would sell Puig permanently, the report from SPORT claims otherwise. Indeed, as per the latest update, the Catalan giants do not plan on selling the 22-year-old outright.

Instead, Barça plan to extend his contract and send him out on loan so that he can play regularly and kickstart his development which has stalled in recent seasons due to a lack of game-time.

Puig’s current contract with the Blaugrana expires in 2023 and the Catalans want to ensure that they extend the deal before he is sent out on loan.

The 22-year-old, for his part, has always desired to succeed at Camp Nou. However, he has accepted that a move away to a team where he can get regular minutes under his belt would be in his best interests.

A loan move would likely appeal more to Puig than a permanent transfer as it would allow him a chance to return to Barcelona and prove himself next year.

With no shortage of takers for the 22-year-old La Masia graduate, it remains to be seen where he ends up.

Barcelona’s business for the summer transfer window kicked off on Monday as they officially confirmed the signings of Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen on free transfers.

The Blaugrana will now focus on getting the deals for Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha over the line while continuing to look for other market opportunities to strengthen their roster.

And, journalist Gerard Romero is now reporting that Barcelona have been offered a chance to sign Wolves and Portugal midfielder Ruben Neves by super-agent Jorge Mendes.

The Portuguese agent was in Barcelona on Monday and is believed to have met club officials to discuss various potential deals.

And as per Romero, during the discussions, Neves has been once again offered to the Catalan giants by Mendes.

The 25-year-old has been identified as the heir apparent to Sergio Busquets for the pivot midfielder role.

Barça had been seriously considering a move for the former FC Porto ace this summer but were priced out of a move by Wolves.

As a result, the La Liga giants decided to postpone their pursuit of Neves until 2023 as he would be entering the final year of his contract with the Premier League club then.

However, Mendes has now put the midfielder’s name back on the table at Barcelona, although with the Portuguese international’s asking price set at a massive €85 million, it is hard to imagine that the Blaugrana will be in a position to go after him.

As iterated earlier, Barça have Lewandowski and Raphinha as their top priorities at the moment while they are also working to sign Marcos Alonso, Cesar Azpilicueta and Jules Kounde to strengthen the defence.

So, splashing €85 million on Neves this summer seems like an unlikely prospect
