Tottenham Hotspur’s stance on Harry Kane has not changed…
What’s the word?
That’s according to Duncan Castles, who delivered an encouraging update on the 27-year-old’s situation to ‘The Transfer Window’ podcast this week.
Speaking about Kane’s future, the Times and Daily Record journalist said:
“What happens with Harry Kane is fascinating.
“We can tell you that in the conversations Paulo Fonseca had, he was told that Harry Kane would not be sold this summer.
“Harry Kane is very much pushing for that move, we’ve seen his public statements, my understanding is nothing has changed since then.”
Will Kane be at Spurs in 2021/22?
Spurs’ new manager, Nuno Santo, has a lot on his plate already but nothing will be bigger than what is happening with his new leading striker.
It’s thought that Kane has expressed his desire to leave his boyhood club this summer, which in turn has alerted several of their top-flight rivals, including Champions League winners Chelsea and both Manchester clubs, as per Sky Sports.
However, chairman Daniel Levy has remained adamant since then that he’s going nowhere and that does not appear to have changed, at least according to Castles.
He mentions the talks the club had with former target Paulo Fonseca and how the Portuguese boss was told that Kane would not be sold and whilst the England international is pushing for that move still, we should presume that Levy’s stance has not changed either.
This would come as hugely encouraging news for Nuno as he embarks on a new job but also the fans too. Many were against the appointment of the 47-year-old but if Kane stays, then they certainly have something to shout about heading into the new season.
Taking him away would leave a likely nightmarish situation at the hands of someone who’s only just walked through the door, so for now, everything should be pleased that the North Londoners appear to be firm in keeping him at the club.
