Five clubs Harry Kane could join if striker quits Tottenham in the summer

first_imgHARRY KANE will consider his Tottenham future at the end of the season, according to reports.The 26-year-old is idolised by Spurs fans far and wide, but with the Lilywhites’ fortunes having dipped dramatically over the last 12 months, the England skipper may decide that his future lies elsewhere.6 Kane has watched Tottenham falter this seasonCredit: Alamy Live News6 The 26-year-old has banged in 181 goals for SpursCredit: ReutersKane has wowed fans for years with his undeniable goal-scoring ability and class.But Tottenham supporters will know that he is so much more than just that, boasting an incredible passing range, remarkable vision and inspirational leadership skills.Spurs’ devastating loss would undoubtedly be another club’s gain, even if Daniel Levy’s valuation of upwards of £150million may put some interested parties off given Kane’s injury record in recent seasons.We take a look at where Kane could end up in the summer, should he decide to up sticks and leave N17.SPURS NEWS LIVE: Follow for the latest news on Spurs1) Manchester UnitedProbably the relatively realistic destination that would sting Spurs fans the most.Manchester United don’t have a team particularly better than Kane’s current bunch, but what they do have are comparatively deep pockets and a desire to stay relevant in the pursuit of trophies and revenue.The Red Devils are only two points and two places above Spurs in the Premier League table.But with the likes of Jadon Sancho being strongly linked with the club, they could be a team going places.Roy Keane raised eyebrows recently by bluntly saying on Sky Sports that Man United should just “go and get” Harry Kane.But Old Trafford could become a particularly attractive destination for Kane, should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be dispensed with and replaced by a certain Mauricio Pochettino…6 Kane scored at Old Trafford for Spurs last seasonCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd2) Manchester CityAnother option that would hurt Tottenham supporters, given that they’d have to watch him line up against them in the Premier League.City have also been linked with Kane’s inspirational former boss Pochettino.The Abu Dhabi owners of City certainly have the wealth to buy Tottenham’s vice-captain, but given that they still have Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, would have to assess whether it is worth haggling with Daniel Levy.Particularly when Kane still has four years left on his bumper contract signed in 2018.Given the two-time Golden Boot winner’s uncanny ability to find the net though, surely those at City would be salivating over the prospect of having Kane on the end of any one of their diminutive playmaker’s cut-backs.It is widely-believed that Kane has ambitions to overtake Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record, and staying in the division with City would give him a chance to do just that.6 Kane was injured in a challenge with England team-mate Fabian Delph against City last seasonCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd3) Real MadridFlorentino Perez knows a thing or two about signing Tottenham’s prized assets.But then, having acquired Luka Modric and Gareth Bale from Spurs in 2012 and 2013 respectively, the Real Madrid president also knows what a hard bargain Daniel Levy drives.For years the Spanish giants have been linked with high-profile strikers, including loosely Kane himself.But also for years, Karim Benzema has continued to silence any lingering doubters by leading the line with aplomb at the Bernabeu.With the Frenchman now 32, however, and with the commercial value that signing the England captain and reigning World Cup Golden Boot winner would bring, Perez would no doubt be interested in recruiting Kane.Kylian Mbappe will be his priority this summer though, and in this era of relative “austerity” at the top clubs given Financial Fair Play, there is almost no way that they can sign both.6 Kane is used to rubbish shoulders with fellow superstars in the Champions LeagueCredit: Reuters4) JuventusPlaying alongside Cristiano Ronaldo must be an attractive proposition for any professional.The Portuguese superstar has completely dedicated himself to his craft, leaving no stone unturned in his pursuit of prolonged excellence at the top of the sport.In many ways Kane has sought to emulate that dedication, and is now known as one of the hardest working top professionals in the sport.With big-money moves in recent years for the likes of Ronaldo, as well as Matthijs de Ligt, Juve have illustrated their desire to elevate themselves into a Champions League winning, trophy-guzzling super-club to rival Real Madrid and Barcelona.Proving his excellence alongside Ronaldo and winning Europe’s top prize could be an attractive proposition for Kane – should Juventus be able to afford him.65) Paris Saint-GermainThere can be no doubt that Paris Saint-Germain could afford Harry Kane.The Qatari owners of the perennial Ligue 1 champions have the funds to sign anyone in world football, as proven by their astonishing £200million purchase of Neymar back in 2018.And Thomas Tuchel’s side will have a vacancy up-front in the summer.Club talisman and all-time leading goal-scorer Edinson Cavani will leave upon the expiration of his contract in June, while Mauro Icardi is only on loan from Inter Milan.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals

that PSG will allow all four to go, signing Kane from Spurs for huge money would allow the Parisians to make a statement to the rest of Europe that they are still one of the biggest sides to be feared.But the bigger question, rather than that of PSG’s wealth, would be whether the glitz and the glamour of the Parc des Princes club would be enough to lure Kane into playing in Ligue 1.

Albertsons’ workers authorize union leaders to call a strike

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS ANGELES (AP) — Workers at Albertsons grocery store voted to give union leaders the authority to call a strike, bringing the prospect of a walkout a step closer. The vote, which was tallied late Sunday, did not set a date for a strike. The tallies and turnout were not released. Three-year contracts covering 65,000 workers at Southern California’s three main grocery chains is set to expire April 9 following two extensions reached in the last month. Unions are pushing to reverse a two-tier wage system they agreed to after a debilitating strike in 2003. They say the wage system has kept most new workers from getting health care benefits. Because of prior agreements, the earliest union employees at Albertsons could walk from their jobs would be April 13, according to union representatives. But a strike that day would be unlikely, they say. The stores — Supervalu Inc.’s Albertons, Kroger Co.’s Ralph’s and Safeway Inc.’s Vons — and the United Food and Commercial Workers locals began talking about a new contract in early February. Albertsons issued a statement last week calling the strike vote an “irresponsible” move to “frighten our employees and alarm our customers.” Albertsons has 22,000 UFCW workers at 249 stores in the region. Michael Shimpock of SG&A Campaigns, a media and political consulting firm hired by the union to speak about the talks, said the last thing the unions want is to strike. “But the employers have left us no choice to authorize a strike,” he said. “We must show them we are serious about demanding a fair and timely contract.” The 2003 strike cost store owners more than $2 billion by some estimates and resulted in the loss of many customers. It also made it difficult for many workers to make ends meet. Ralph’s locked out employees on Oct. 11, 2003, after Southern California grocery workers voted to strike against Vons and Pavilions. Ralph’s brought in replacement workers to keep its stores running.last_img read more

first_img1 Lille are lining up a move for former Arsenal and Juventus left-back Armand Traore, who is entering the final year of his QPR contract.The 25-year-old made 16 Premier League appearances last season as the Hoops were relegated from England’s top-flight.And reports in France have suggested he could be allowed to leave for free this summer, despite being under contract until this time next year.Now Lille are hopeful of striking a deal for the left-back who has never played professional football in France, despite being born in Paris.Traore came through the ranks at Arsenal, and spent time on loan at Portsmouth and Juve before moving permanently to QPR in 2011.He has gone on to make a total of 93 appearances for the west London club, scoring two goals.

Bennett targeted

first_imgBAKERSFIELD – Black community leaders announced plans to protest an appearance by former Education Secretary William Bennett, who is set to speak this weekend at the Bakersfield Business Conference. Bennett has been dogged by controversy after his comments last week on his “Morning in America” radio show. Bennett, the author of “The Book of Virtues,” was answering a caller’s question and took issue with the hypothesis put forth in a recent book that one reason crime is down is that abortion was legalized, reducing the number of unwanted babies. “But I do know that it’s true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down,” Bennett said, adding that it would be “an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Bakersfield black community members gathered Monday night to plan strategy for the protest. “These are my grandbabies he’s talking about,” said Bernita Jenkins, a Democratic activist. “For him to insert black babies into the comment, it just kind of centers on a whole new frame of racism where we have not been before.” Bennett claims his comments were taken out of context. Keith Wolaridge, chairman of the Black Republicans in the County of Kern, called on Bennett to apologize. A spokesman said Monday that Bennett has no intention of apologizing or canceling his appearance. Bennett postponed an appearance planned for Tuesday at the University of Cincinnati after College Democrats at the school said they would protest.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Woman killed as car careens off freeway

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake The woman’s identity was not released, pending notification of relatives. Residents of the 56-home complex gathered at the site and said there had been about four fatalities and as many as 15 crashes along the stretch of freeway between Yosemite Avenue and the Cochran Street bridge. But most were baffled as to why the crashes occur along the relatively straight stretch of highway. James Murphy, who has lived in White Oak for 14 years, said he remembers about 10 cars coming down the embankment, some landing on the town house road and some at the base of the freeway. “I have no idea what causes them, but it all seems to be happening in this one stretch,” he said. SIMI VALLEY – A woman died Wednesday after being thrown from her car as it careened down an embankment along the Ronald Reagan Freeway and onto a street in a Simi Valley town house complex. Capt. Cliff Williams of the California Highway Patrol’s Moorpark station said the Ford Explorer was apparently headed east on the freeway when it went down the embankment and struck the top of a block wall just east of Yosemite Avenue. It landed on Rothko Lane, a small roadway next to the White Oak town house complex. No home was damaged. Williams said investigators were trying to find witnesses to explain what caused the crash – whether only the Explorer or also another vehicle was involved. Boths sides of the Explorer were smashed. A message on its license-plate frame, which was broken off, says “Happiness Is Being a Grandmother.” Not far from where the woman died Wednesday, there were some plastic birds of paradise left beside a tree where a young woman died in another crash earlier this year, said Carol Macksoud, whose home is near the site of both crashes. “I’ve been here since 1997 and I’ve probably seen 15 cars come down. I went up on the freeway once to try to figure out why,” she said.

PICTURE SPECIAL FROM DAY ONE OF CLODAGH’S INCREDIBLE JOURNEY ACROSS DONEGAL

first_imgWHAT a star this girl Clodagh Barry really is.Whilst most of us spent Friday indoors sheltering from the dreadful weather, the Newtowncunningham teenager was completing day one of her two-day journey on horseback from Arranmore Island to Malin Head.The event is to raise funds for Donegal Downs Syndrome Association. Clodagh’s route started on the Island – and she hopes to complete it on Saturday.All sponsorship for this uniquely Donegal event would be greatly appreciated and if you or your business would like to donate, you can contact Liam Barry at 0872634301.You can also donate to this event at idonate.ie or directly to the Donegal Downs Syndrome Association at Convent Road, LetterkennyThe pictures (courtesy of Joseph Brennan) show the pony express taking on Duffy’s wheeled express outside Dungloe this afternoon and the long lonely road to the Corkscrew and down into Doochary where a pony change awaited. Plus a welcome from local revellers in Teach Gleann Ceo. Perhaps the most stunning, and wettest, leg of the journey then faced Clodagh, taking her up the long, lonely road to Loch Barra and by the Glenveagh National Park. By the time she arrived in Churchill it appeared the pony had an idea where to go…..but Clodagh had other ideas! Good luck Clodagh!
