Harry Kane Set to Leave Spurs?
Despite being out of action for Tottenham at the moment with a hamstring injury sustained on New Year’s Day, that hasn’t stopped Harry Kane (£6.00) appearing in the headlines.
Today it has been reported that the 26-year-old could in fact be considering his future, with various outlets suggesting the striker is eyeing up a move to Manchester United at the end of the season.
In the last 24 hours Kane’s Share Price has increased by 23p, shooting him back into the £6.00 bracket in the process.
With regards to this summer’s Euro 2020 competition, he has also given a positive update on his fitness as he looks to lead England at the tournament later this year.
“In my head, I am definitely at the Euros,” said Kane speaking to the Evening Standard. “Unless something pretty drastic happens between now and then, I’ll be there.
“We’re talking a few more weeks, and I’ll be playing again. I don’t want to make a prediction for which game I might be back, but I am hoping somewhere between the start and the middle of April.”
Kylian Mbappe Nets Midweek Belter
Paris Saint-Germain brushed aside Lyon in their Coupe de France semi-final with a convincing 5-1 win yesterday, although the night belonged to Kylian Mbappe (£7.19).
The 21-year-old Frenchman scored a hat-trick in the victory, with a stunning solo finish the pick of his three efforts that has been doing the rounds on social media.
The goal was his ninth in his last eight games for the Parisian club in all competitions, as last night’s efforts saw his Share Price increase by 26p as a result.
In terms of PSG’s season, it still keeps alive hopes a quadruple, although they’ll need to overturn a one-goal deficit next week against Borussia Dortmund if they’re to progress any further in the Champions League.
Promising Monaco Youngster Set to Return
Another notable riser on the Index today is a youngster who is yet to make an appearance this season in AS Monaco’s Pietro Pellegri (£1.60).
The 18-year-old Italian, who has scored once for the principality, arrived in January 2018 for a fee in the region of €25m, although his progress has been repeatedly hindered due to an unfortunate streak of injuries.
According to reports in France however, Pellegri, whose Share Price has increased by 19p in the last 24 hours, is poised to finally return to the fold.
