Harry Kane is a man in demand and is attracting interest from Premier League clubs and those in Europe.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy faces a real fight to hold on to club record scorer Harry Kane in the summer with renewed interest from Manchester United, Bayern Munich, and Chelsea, LondonWorld understands.

Kane continues to be the shining light in a season that promised a lot at the beginning and is ending with a whimper following the sacking of Antonio Conte.

Spurs have managed to blow the progress that was made when they qualified for the Champions League last campaign, the infusion of funds from the board, and the appointment of a serial winner like Antonio Conte.

Instead, they have fallen back to Ryan Mason to see out a campaign that has seen three managers try without success so far to get back on the right path.

Striker Harry Kane who will turn 30 in July will have only one year left on his current deal in the summer, and unlike a couple of seasons ago when he tried without success to leave, he does have a lot of power on his hands at the moment.

Despite what has been an incredibly difficult campaign on and off the field for the Lilywhites, only Manchester City’s Erling Haaland has scored more league goals than Kane, 24 bagged. Without Kane’s goals, Spurs would have been languishing at the bottom half of the table.

Bayern Munich are in desperate need of a forward having failed to replace Robert Lewandowski, Manchester United are also looking to add goals to their forward line as well as Chelsea who are on the verge of appointing former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino as their new boss, all these clubs, sources say are keeping an eye on the Kane situation in north London.

It is Erik ten Hag’s side who are however favourite to land the striker with Kane reportedly interested in staying in the Premier League to hunt down Alan Shearer’s all-time league goal-scoring record.

Sources add that Kane feels he has a better chance of winning titles at United and will attempt to draw the curtain on his stay in north London in the summer.

LondonWorld understands that former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino who is now in talks with Chelsea to take over from Potter is a big fan of Kane, who he worked with for five years at Spurs, and will be looking at the possibility of reuniting with him in southwest London.
