Hello Manchester City?

Harry Kane is rumored to be looking for a way out of Tottenham Hotspur, and the 27-year-old has now more or less confirmed those rumors.

His interview with Gary Neville is the strongest indication yet that he may indeed be on the move this summer.

“I don’t want to come to the end of my career and have any regrets. I want to be the best I can be.

“I never said I’d stay at Spurs for the rest of my career and I’ve never said I’d leave Spurs. People might say, ‘he’s desperate for trophies, he needs trophies’, but I still feel like I’ve still got almost another career to play.

“I’ve got seven, eight years, kind of what I’ve already had in the Premier League. So I’m not rushing anything, I’m not desperate to do anything. I want to be playing in the biggest games. This season, I’m watching the Champions League and the English teams doing amazing, and they’re the games I want to be involved in.

“It’s a moment in my career where I have to reflect and see where I’m at. Ultimately, it’s going to be down to me, how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career.”

The probability of Kane joining Chelsea is extremely low, if not entirely non-existent, but as long as his future is in question, Chelsea will continue to be linked. Manchester City appear to be the clear favorites, and it seems like just a matter of whether they’re willing to cough up the cash necessary.


Elsewhere on the periphery of Chelsea’s rumor mill, Sergio Agüero looks set to join Barcelona, Andrea Belotti looks set to leave Torino and perhaps join AS Roma, Erling Haaland looks set to stay at Borussia Dortmund, while both Robert Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman are angling for new contracts at Bayern.
