Chelsea £100m Spurs Kane Deal will Smash Premier League Transfer Record

Harry Kane.jpgChelsea will break the bank and The Premier League transfer record this January affording Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino anywhere between £90 and £100 million to move for a replacement.  This would therefore be a mutually amicable deal for a 22-year-old poacher and game keeper who is still to reach his prime even if it might break a few of the faithful Spurs hearts.

Tottenham Hotspur.svgWith stadium plans afoot and plenty going on behind the scenes the deal will suit Spurs although a big name striker will have to come in to ease the pressure on two phenomenal goal machines coming through the ranks. Spurs seem to find goal machines on trees although that could have something to do with the attacking style and grace down at the Lane over the last half century.

Chelsea FC.svgThe Blues are not alone in their interest however they are ahead of the usual Spanish suspects plus money bags PSG and negotiations are already afoot. Spurs squandered the last windfall under a former Chelsea outcast but this time you feel, under Pochettino, one of English football's most attractive sides will play at the level their  attractive passing football deserves. The 22-year-old has bagged 3 for England so far and 8 in 13 Premier League outings plus one in 232 minutes as he was used sparingly in the Europa League.
