Tottenham identify two possible makeweight options in Harry Kane deal
The rumour mill has been abuzz with speculations since last night when Sky Sports broke the news that Kane had informed Tottenham he wanted to leave the club at the end of the season.
While the club remain tight-lipped on the situation, Football.london’s Alasdair Gold dismissed those claims, insisting that the England captain had relayed no such message, even though he was frustrated at how things are the club currently.
Nevertheless, the speculations and rumours have been spreading like wildfire ever since, with the Daily Mail now claiming that Tottenham were internally aware that Kane could leave at the end of the ongoing campaign and have been preparing for his potential departure for a while now.
With Tottenham valuing the 27-year-old in excess of £150 million, there is an acceptance that a cash-upfront deal might be difficult and the club are open to part-exchange transfers involving players from interested parties, Manchester City and Manchester United.
And, the report goes on to state that Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus is one such player that Tottenham would be willing to accept as part of the deal for Kane, with Manchester United’s Anthony Martial being the other.

Kane, this season, has plundered 32 goals and 16 assists across all competitions. Even if one combined Martial and Jesus’ tally for the campaign the figures are nowhere near close. Any player, as a matter of fact, will be a major stepdown from Harry Kane, unless Tottenham are able to somehow go out and get a Robert Lewandowski into the club.
It remains to be seen how this story continues to develop. The report does add that chairman Daniel Levy is very much reluctant to deal with either of City or United.
