Harry Kane tipped to reject huge European move as former Tottenham man feels he ‘wants to stay’

Former Tottenham man Alan Hutton is “not so sure” Harry Kane would want to move to Paris Saint-Germain, as he feels the striker “wants to stay in England”.

Kane’s been linked with three huge sides this summer: Bayern Munich, PSG and Manchester United. The latter seem incapable of completing the snare no matter how hard they try, with Tottenham unwilling to sell within the Premier League.

That could potentially open the door to a move to either of the other sides, if they were able to conjure up an offer that Spurs were happy with.

However, both sides have taken hits in their pursuit recently. Kane has apparently made it clear he would ‘turn down an approach’ from PSG if offered the chance to join them.

And while that could put Bayern in the driver’s seat, their chances also seem to have plummeted of late. That’s after chairman Daniel Levy decided he won’t sell to them for even even £100million, due to comments from Uli Hoeness that have angered him.

Former Spurs man Hutton has reiterated that Kane might not be interested in a move to PSG if they were still in the hunt, despite the fact they have the capability to get the deal done.

“I think they have got the financial backing to do it so I do not see that being a problem,” Hutton told Football Insider.

“Would Kane want to go and play in the French league? The Bundesliga seems a little bit stronger to me.”

While he suggests a move to Bayern would be better for the striker, Hutton doesn’t feel he’ll fancy a move abroad at all.

“Bayern are an iconic football team. PSG have obviously got superstars but it seems to me a little bit of a circus at times,” Hutton added.

“Does he want to be part of that? I am not so sure. I can tell you, there is something in me that feels he just wants to stay in England.”

Hutton’s views are in contrast to recent reports that state Kane has given his word to Bayern. However, Sky Sports man Paul Gilmour has suggested that while Bayern feel they’ve got that, Kane is keeping his options open.

With that being said, Hutton might yet be correct that the Spurs man wants to stay in England. That would allow him the chance at breaking Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goals record, so it’s not out of the realms of possibility.

That Kane’s out of contract next summer means even if he doesn’t want to stay at Tottenham, he could move anywhere in England for free at that point, and he might well do so if he’s not convinced by the north London outfit this term.
