Man Utd, Chelsea and Man City's potential line-ups with Harry Kane transfer

Published on: 18 May 2021

Harry Kane is set to be at the heart of a transfer tug-of-war this summer after telling Tottenham he wants a move away before the European Championships.

Manchester United, Chelsea and newly-crowned Premier League champions Manchester City are all in the mix for the striker, but face shattering the English transfer market in order to buy him.

The striker is believed to have made a gentleman's agreement with Daniel Levy for him to leave this summer, but Spurs are still reluctant to let him go by any means, and don't want to sell to a Premier League rival.

The striker still has three years to run on his current contract and is closing in on the Premier League scoring record, so a move currently seems unlikely.

Mirror Football has taken a look at how Kane could fit in at each interested side.

Manchester United

United have spent big on new signings in recent years with the likes of Paul Pogba and Harry Maguire in the past, and they currently seem the most likely to pay through the nose.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to sign a world-class striker this summer, and is believed to be a huge admirer of Kane.

If he did join, Kane would likely take Anthony Martial's place in the side and play as a central striker.

Signing Kane would likely mean an end to their pursuit of both Declan Rice and Jadon Sancho, but could still leave them with cash in the bank to bring in Raphael Varane.

Potential Manchester United line-up with Kane: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Varane, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba; Kane


Chelsea currently seems like an unlikely option for Kane, considering the rivalry between the two clubs.

But the Blues are eager to sign a new striker, and have been linked with Romelu Lukaku and Erling Haaland.

If Chelsea were able to sign Kane, they'd likely put him as a central striker and push Timo Werner out of contention.

Thomas Tuchel has enjoyed playing with a false nine, but will likely play Kane as a central striker with two inside forwards behind him.

Chelsea potential line-up with Kane: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Havertz, Mount; Kane

Manchester City

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been tipped to move for Kane in the past, and is believed to have made an enquiry last summer.

City will lose Sergio Aguero this summer and Gabriel Jesus is unlikely to lead the line for long.

As a result, if Kane was to join, he'd become their star man up top, with Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez playing on the wings alongside him.

Ferran Torres would likely become an option off the bench at centre-forward.

Manchester City potential line-up with Kane: Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko; Gundogan, De Bruyne, Rodri; Mahrez, Kane, Foden
