Gary Linekar gave his opinion regarding Harry Kane’s potential suitors ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.

Gary Linekar thinks that both Manchester clubs and Paris Saint-Germain are inclined towards buying Harry Kane in the summer. The Tottenham star racked 22 goals along with 14 assists in the Premier League last campaign to secure both the golden boot and the playmaker prize.

However, in spite of his remarkable feat, Spurs ended up finishing seventh in the domestic league. Ahead of the awaited European Championship, Kane is set to captain England but wants to end his spell at the north London club. And Linekar acknowledges Kane’s desperation to win major trophies.

“I think that it would be worrying [to see him dominate the league if he joins Manchester City],” Lineker told Goal. “I would love to see him at Barcelona but they are going for [Sergio] Aguero and are short on cash at the moment. I think it is between Manchester City, Manchester United and maybe PSG.”

“They have [Mauricio] Pochettino and he would win things, guaranteed. I think it is more likely that one of the Manchester clubs can afford him outside of Chelsea. I don’t think he would go to Chelsea and do that to the Tottenham fans but who knows.”

“I don’t think even the Tottenham fans would begrudge him moving now. He has given the club everything for a long time. They’ve not won anything with him which is a shame and it is a tough time for Tottenham.”

“They are managerless in the realist sense of the world and could well lose their best player. For Harry, he needs to go and he wants to compete for major trophies, who wouldn’t? I was in a similar position myself at Leicester.”

“I was in the team at the club I supported all my life, but there comes a point where you have to put your career first. I doubt he will leave before the Euros because, with [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy, it could take a while.”
