Tottenham striker Harry Kane in talks with shock new club with star determined to leave

The England captain could tread a well-trodden path this summer

Tottenham captain and striker Harry Kane has been in shock talks over a move to Saudi Arabia as he looks to weigh up his options this summer amid interest from German side Bayern Munich.

The Englishman is out of contract next summer, and though Daniel Levy is determined not to sell him to a Premier League rival amid interest from Manchester United, the striker leaving the club is not out of the question.

According to the Times, ‘Kane does not plan to sign a new contract regardless of what happens in this transfer window’, which has left Spurs considering cashing in on him in order to help fund Ange Postecoglu’s new additions.

Bayern Munich have seen two bids rejected for the 30-year-old, and are expected to come back in with a third offer as Spurs demand around £100m for their star.

Now, however, a new contender for his signature has emerged,

According to Sky Sports, Saudi Arabia side Al-Hilal have held talks over the possibility of signing Kane as they look to continue sweeping up talent from across Europe.

They have also seen bids for Lionel Messi and Romelu Lukaku turned down, but are on the hunt for a new man to lead their line after Odion Ighalo left the club earlier in the summer to make room for a new addition.

Sky add that Kane is seen as ‘‘one of the priorities’’ for Saudi Arabia in a bid to bring top level football to the middle-east, but it is unclear how keen Kane himself would be on the move.
