Michael Owen says he ‘can’t see’ managerless Chelsea being able to lure Harry Kane from their London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.
The former England striker agreed that it’s time for Harry Kane to leave Tottenham and look for a new home.
English Football Fans BANNED From Protesting
He agreed that Chelsea ‘absolutely need’ a number nine like the 29-year-old, but will he dare move to Stamford Bridge in the summer?
It’s all about trophies. Not many will argue that Chelsea have more of a chance of winning silverware than Spurs.
But, come next season, they won’t be in the Champions League, or any form of Europe, as they stare at the possibility of finishing in the Premier League’s bottom half.
From that perspective, it decreases Chelsea’s chances of signing Kane, but everyone knows Todd Boehly has money to burn, with Owen discussing the player’s future, as he told Premier League Productions (30/04/23 at 1:25 pm).
“How can Harry Kane finish a career winning nothing?” asked Owen. “He’s such a good player. The only problem is. Where is that club? Chelsea absolutely needs him. They need a centre-forward. I can’t see him going to Chelsea.
“Manchester City is obviously a place everyone would want to go. But Haaland is there.
“It will mean twice as much if he won the league with Tottenham, then that would mean everything to him. But, realistically, they are a million miles away from winning the league, so he isn’t going to do that.
“Manchester City are never going to buy him. If you aren’t going there, then who else?”
POCHETTINO TO CHELSEA
This could throw a spanner amongst the works because Mauricio Pochettino is closing in on a move to Chelsea.
After being sacked by PSG last summer, the Tottenham favourite could just harm his legacy in north London by joining the West London side.
If he joins, it’s obvious that talks of Kane moving to the Bridge will only increase and if the £200k-a-week Spurs star (Spotrac) does re-unite with Pochettino in the colours of Chelsea, then the reaction of both sets of supporters is going to be something.
