HARRY Kane could be the deadliest Englishman from close range since Harold Shipman.
So how will that affect his value in a fantasy football auction?
Next Friday around 20 managers will be battling it out for the signatures of Kane, Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero and the like at the 13th annual Kenna League auction.
With a team budget of £100m, the most desirable strikers in the land can expect to fetch anything between £30 and £50m.
Kenna rules mean managers can only buy one player from each Premier League club.
What does that do the signing fees of second tier strikers?
The return of Javier ‘El Chicharito’ Hernandez to England will be watched with interest.
‘The Little Pea’ has Kenna League experience, which is a big advantage over a newcomer like Alexandre ‘The Casette’ Lacazette.
The Mexican is also likely to get plenty of game time considering his competition for a place comes from Andy Carroll, a man so prone to injury his season will have more interruptions than a Kensington and Chelsea council meeting.
Wayne Rooney’s return to Merseyside is another move to raise an eyebrow.
Formally an outstanding performer at this level, enthusiasm from Kenna managers in recent times has…ahem…waned.
Two years ago Rooney was signed at auction for £31m. Last year it was £20m before he was sold in the February transfer window for a miserable £0.5m.
Rooney’s summer move will see his value increase, although many managers will consider him a gamble for anything more than £10m.
Saying that, players are randomly generated to be picked for auction so if Rooney comes out in the first half hour he’ll probably pick up a bigger signing fee.
If he comes out once managers have had a few beers and a couple of shots of the chairman’s homemade quince vodka, who knows what will happen?
