It looks like Harry Kane is bent on leaving the club this summer. The player reiterated his position about his transfer before the tournament started. The burden of the transfer is not affecting his performance at the EURO 2020 because he can’t make any decision now. Also, Kane rebuffed the statement saying he was being distracted by the situation around his transfer. The forward made it clear that his focus is on helping his team at the competition.
However, the club is still bent on keeping England forward who is valued at £120m. Fabio Paratici, Tottenham’s new Director of Football, took a clear position about the player in his interview. Paratici is keen on keeping the forward. He describes Kane as one of the finest strikers in the world, a complete player. He has the physique of a true poacher, a read number nine with refined techniques. Kane can make use of both feet and is already ready to cheer his team members to victory.
Paratici made it clear that he would like the player to remain with the team. However, he added that the decision to keep the star player wasn’t just his but also that of the club. Ideally, no one would want to lose one of the best players in the team upon arrival. Paratici also stated that he had not had a conversation with the player who is busy at European Competition. “Obviously, he is focused on making his national team proud. It would be unfair to him to bring up the conversation now,” said Paratici.
The club is facing a mammoth about Kane’s Future. The club wants to keep him, but the decision still lies with the player who is currently having a good time at the EURO tournament. Although the club is bent on keeping the England star, they could give the player to another club outside England if he insists on leaving. Ideally, this would be at an exorbitantly high price tag. Spurs have recently announced Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager and will look to arm their squad as best as possible.
Manchester City had already offered a bid of £100m in June for England forward. The club turned down the offer. A host of clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea, have also shown interest in the 27-year-old forward. Kane’s contract at the club comes to an end in 2024. The player has had an incredible run in his career. Last season, he topped the Premier League charts with 23 goals and 14 assists. Harry Kane is a prolific forward, one of the best in the world. However, there are no significant trophies attached to his name despite his qualities. For a striker of this kind, he ought to have substantial trophies. We would guess that this is one of the reasons the forward is bent on leaving the club. Viewers and punters interested in the bitcoin sportsbook are also curious to know what decision would be made by the forward.
Tottenham had an opportunity to win the Carabao Cup. However, the club didn’t see eye to eye with former coach Jose Mourinho on some decisions, which led to him getting axed before the final. Manchester City defeated Tottenham in the Carabao Cup final. Also, the team could not make the Champions League spot last season after they let go of former manager Jose Mourinho. These factors seem to be affecting the player’s decisions. A prolific goalscorer like Kane needs trophies to his name to stand out.
Daniel Levy, the club chairman, has said that the club would do whatever is right for the club. You should note that before Paratici arrived at Tottenham, the club was searching for a replacement for Kane if indeed he decides to leave. Currently, the England captain has helped his team to the semi-finals of the European Championship. So far, he has been able to net three goals. The decision to leave or stay at Tottenham would be made after the European Championship is over.
Other notable transfer debacles going on include;
- Jadon Sancho to Manchester United. The skilful winger is in the Semifinals at the Euros with England and is set to complete this transfer after the tournament.
- Lionel Messi’s contract situation. The Argentine is now a free agent, and Barca is trying their best to renew his contract. Messi’s future will probably be decided after Copa America.
- Matteo Guendozi and William Saliba may be moving to Marseille as Arsenal looks to rebuild its squad. They are also considering selling Xhaka, Torreira and Bellerin.
Roger Federer Beats Lorenzo Sonego to Move to the Quarter-Final in Wimbledon
Roger Federer beat Lorenzo Sonego to make history. The 35-year-old Swiss player is the oldest player to get to the quarter-final. He defeated Sonego in straight sets with ease. This was surprising to most fans seeing the way he began the competition.
Federer came into the tournament with some concerns about his fitness. This is because he looked rusty during the opening match when he battled Adrian Mannarino. We all remember that the Swiss player had an early exit at the Halle Open.
However, the legendary player rose to the occasion when he defeated Richard Gasquet in a straightforward win. Also, he was able to bring Norrie’s run to an end. Everyone tipped Lorenzo Sonego to be a more formidable challenge to the Swiss player. But the Italian wasn’t able to put up a challenge against 20-time Grand Slam champion.
This victory, for Federer, was one of the easiest in the tournament. He conveniently won all sets against the Italian player. The match, which ended a little over two hours, was history for the illustrious Swiss career. Back in 1975, the record was with 40-year-old Ken Rosewall. Rosewall was the oldest player to get to the fourth round in the open era at Wimbledon. Currently, Federer has now surpassed Rosewall in reaching the quarter-final.
Federer’s next match would have to be postponed due to the changes made to the game between Hubert Hurkacz and Daniil Medvedev. The game was delayed due to rain and weather. The Swiss player would face the winner from that match. Hopefully, he would be able to conquer and get himself a ticket to the semi-final. Federer retains the confidence of bitcoin sportsbook punters and bookies and will be looking to add to his grand slam triumphs.
