Graham Roberts insists that the new Tottenham Hotspur manager will not want to sell Harry Kane, whomever they may be.
The club have been linked with a number of new managers in recent weeks.
Brendan Rodgers is said to have turned down a potential move to the club from Leicester City.
The Athletic have reported that Spurs had opened talks with PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino over a potentially sensational return to the club, while talks with previous frontrunner Antonio Conte broke down in a period in which a number of top managers, including Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, left their posts.
Roberts, though, believes that a condition of any manager being appointed will be to keep Kane.
The England captain has asked to leave the club, per Sky Sports, but Roberts thinks he will have to remain in north London if a manager is to be willing to take the reins following the sacking of Jose Mourinho earlier this season.
He told Football FanCast exclusively: “Until the manager comes, we don’t know. If you’re Brendan Rodgers, the first thing you’re going to say is, ‘I don’t want Harry Kane to be sold’.”
