Paris Saint-Germain paid €222m to Barcelona to acquire the services of Neymar Jr. Brazilian ranks in the same rank as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have established themselves. It would be strange for the world to know that England forward Harry Kane earns comparison to Neymar for the transfer price quoted if he makes a move away from Tottenham Hotspur.
According to SkySports reporter Tony Gale, “Harry Kane would command a bigger transfer fee than Neymar but Tottenham should never sell the striker.”
Gale Explains, “Tottenham need to keep Kane because he is exactly the type of star player they require at their new stadium but that if he was ever sold, the transfer fee would be a new world record which would eclipse the €222m PSG paid for Neymar in August.”
He adds, “the temptation is that if they sell him, that will pay for the new stadium. But, you want the best players to play in the new stadium and he is one of the best strikers in the world at the moment. They’d be mad to sell him, you’ve got to build everything around him and give him what Real Madrid would pay him. i think he is worth more than Neymar. Harry’s got goals in him and goals are the thing.”
Gale did good homework to promote the English man. Kane has got goals in him. He has already scored 11 times including Premier League and Uefa Champions League this season. There are newcomers like Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele who have broken the record book in their transfer saga.
Kane at least has proven goal scoring record. He has scored 110 goals in 174 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur. In last three seasons, he has managed to score an average of 30 goals every season. This season, he already has scored 13 goals in the month of September alone, and with going rate of player’s value he definitely can fetch Hotspur €200m.
But, Gayle comparison to Neymar still needs to be tested. Neymar doesn’t only score goals, he is assist king. Neymar also has 8 goals and 7 assist to his name this season since he moved to PSG. He has consistent goal scoring spree with an average of 30 goals in last three season along with the numerous assists he provides to his teammate.
Kane has only started his international career and have scored 10 goals in 29 appearances, but Neymar is an established player in Brazil national football team with 52 goals in 79 appearances. The comparison is good, but Gayle should have compared the transfermarkt.com market value for both the players first. Neymar is valued at €100m, whereas Kane is valued at €60m.
