As per the Daily Express, Tottenham could be offered David De Gea by Manchester United in part-exchange for Harry Kane.
The Lowdown: Kane future uncertain
Kane’s future at Tottenham is uncertain. At the age of 27, he is yet to win a single piece of team silverware despite being one of the best strikers in the world, and he is said to have told those around him that he intends to leave Spurs this summer.
Manchester United have been mentioned as one of the clubs in pursuit of his signature.
The Latest: United could offer De Gea
Tottenham are believed to value Kane at a huge £175m – a fee the Red Devils just could not afford.
As such, United could well offer goalkeeper De Gea in part exchange for the England international.
The Verdict: Worth considering
The possibility of Kane departing north London has never felt as pressing. He is on course to end the season as the Premier League’s top goalscorer (BBC), while he has also managed the most assists in the league so far, yet Tottenham are currently seventh in the Premier League and are in real danger of missing out on qualification for European competition altogether.
Would you take De Gea in part exchange for Kane?
If the 27-year-old does move on, Daniel Levy must do all he can to get the best deal for the club. While not at his peak, the £19.8m-valued De Gea (Transfermarkt) is still one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and has won Manchester United’s Player of the Year on four separate occasions – more than any other player (manutd.com).
Hugo Lloris is 34, error-prone and does not have too long left at the top, whereas De Gea is four years younger. As long as the transfer fee is also considerable, this could be a good deal for Tottenham.
