Harry Kane could be playing in the famous Barcelona shirt next season. There’s been a lot of media speculations regarding the striker’s future in recent weeks following another trophy-less season at Tottenham.
“Linked with a move away from North London this summer, Kane seems to have made a decision as he appeared to bid the Spurs fans goodbye” After a 2-1 home defeat to Aston Villa on Wednesday, Kane walked round the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium alone, applauding the fans (who were allowed into the stadium for the first time since the Covid 19 outbreak.
If Kane’s decision is to leave Spurs his summer, there are lots of options for him. The 27 year old is considered one of Europe’s hottest assets in attack. He would be a quality addition to any team.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Man City are among his potential domestic suitors, but it is believed the Englishman may see moving to a premier League club as betrayal to Spurs fans.
Barcelona is now a likely destination as the Catalans seek a top striker to boost their attacking options ahead of the coming season.
Why Kane and Barcelona could be match made in heaven
Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germaine and Juventus are also other options but we reckon Barcelona are the best fit for Kane, here’s why:
Kane will score goals
With 165 Premier League goals to his name, Harry Kane is the player with the most goals to have never won the Premier League title.
Since making his league debut in August 2012, Harry Kane has scored 165 Premier League goals. With 22 strikes this season, he currently leads the race for the Premier League golden boot. It is never in doubt that he would score goals wherever he goes. Put in a team the caliber of Barcelona, Kane is guaranteed to deliver 30 to 40 goals a season.
Barcelona will win titles
At 27, Kane is still waiting for his first club career trophy. He came close to winning the Premier League in 2016/2017 when Tottenham finished second, 7 points behind Champions Chelsea. Kane and Spurs also came short in the Champions League, losing the 2019 finals to Liverpool after an amazing run in the competition that season. A 2-0 defeat in the League Cup final in 2014 means Kane has never tasted silverware as a Spurs player.
However, Barcelona has a track record of winning trophies in the last two decades. One of the most successful sides, Barca have dominated the domestic scene in Spain since 2009. Even though they have missed out on the La Liga title two seasons running, adding a striker of Kane’s qualities could take Barca back to the summit of Spanish football. The Catalans may be heavily linked with Sergio Aguero, but Harry Kane is a much better option, and yet still, both strikers could be arriving at the Camp Nou this summer.
