As former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to take over as Chelsea manager, rumors of Harry Kane’s transfer are resurfacing.
England’s ‘Court Offside’ said on the 10th (Korean time), “The next Chelsea manager, Pochettino, will be reviewing a new goalkeeper, central midfielder, and striker.” It will be inevitable.”
Chelsea unexpectedly sacked manager Thomas Tuchel early this season and appointed then-Brighton manager Graham Porter. It was evaluated that he was the right person for a long-term project. However, as the sluggish performance continued, manager Porter was ousted and Frank Lampard was replaced as interim manager.
Chelsea have chosen former manager Pochettino as their next manager. almost certain Pochettino, who directed Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) after Tottenham, is about to return to the Premier League in four years since 2019.
The media emphasized that Pochettino, who does not have a separate agent, directly led the negotiations with Chelsea. “It is highly likely that Chelsea will appoint former manager Pochettino to the vacant managerial post. The hiring process was thorough and very interactive. Pochettino asked Chelsea a lot of questions and it looks positive.”
“Chelsea had to get their next manager right and Pochettino had to have a vision and understand how much control he could have.” 스포츠토토
One of the areas that manager Pochettino puts the most effort into is the forward striker. Therefore, it is expected that it will be inevitable to connect with Kane, a former student of Tottenham. So far, Chelsea have not made any approach to Kane, but as long as manager Pochettino comes, they are of course in the scouting candidate.
Kane, who is still showing the best determination, is in a state of great thirst for trophies. So far, only Manchester United (Man Utd) has shown continued interest in Kane, but things could change if Chelsea jumped in. Kane can also consider a transfer to Chelsea, especially if it is a team led by coach Pochettino.
The problem is Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. Chairman Levy is still reluctant to sell Kane. Even if he sells, it is unlikely he will pass Kane to Premier League rivals Chelsea. Ahead of the 2021-2022 season, the situation of Kane, who wanted to transfer to Manchester City (Man City) and rebelled, could be directed again.
Kane is contracted until 2024. He has not yet signed a contract extension with Tottenham. If Kane doesn’t want to renew the contract, and if Tottenham doesn’t want to lose Kane as a free agent (FA), President Levy has to sell Kane anywhere. If Kane heads to Chelsea, he will lose the duo career he built with Son Heung-min and face him as a rival.
