Harry Kane told long-term Tottenham Hotspur contract robbed him of Liverpool, PSG, or Bayern Munich move
According to former Aston Villa right-back Micah Richards, Harry Kane could have been at a team like Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Bayern Munich, Liverpool, or Manchester City if he didn’t sign a long-term contract at Tottenham Hotspur.
Off the back of a 2017-18 season where netted a ridiculous 41 goals along with providing five assists in 48 games across competitions, Kane was offered a six-year deal by Spurs.
Kane was also the FIFA World Cup Golden Boot winner in the summer of 2018 at the FIFA World Cup as England managed a semi-final finish. He has maintained his high standards and continues to score goals for fun.
This has naturally attracted interest from other teams. Manchester City wanted to sign him last summer but have now signed Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Now, Bayern Munich are interested in him after losing Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona this summer. Richards believes Kane, who hasn’t won a trophy as a Spurs player, could have been at another big European side, winning titles.
He wrote in his Daily Mail column:
“He’s just absolutely sensational. Signing such a long-term contract at Tottenham was a mistake because he could have been at Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich winning the trophies his ability deserves.”
PSG have Kylian Mbappe up front and have loaned Hugo Ekitike up from Stade de Rennais. The Reds, meanwhile, brought in Darwin Nunez from SL Benfica this summer in a high-profile transfer.
Perhaps Bayern are the only team out of the four aforementioned teams that need a striker. Spurs would, however, do well to tie Kane to another long-term contract after he returns from the 2022 FIFA World Cup with the Three Lions.

The Englishman will be in his 30s by the time his contract expires at N17 and we have to convince him that this project is the one he should dedicate the last few years of his playing career to.
