Tottenham Hotspur will not allow Harry Kane to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
That’s according to a report by Manchester Evening News, who claim that Daniel Levy has privately agreed with the Tottenham hierarchy that the club will not sell the 27-year-old in the summer transfer window.
The centre-forward is said to have informed Spurs of his desire to leave north London amid reports of Manchester City’s interest in his services, with Pep Guardiola’s side believed to have had a £100m off rejected for the England captain.
However, if the latest reports are to be believed, it would now seem as if the £108m-rated man will be remaining with Tottenham for at least a further season.
With it very much appearing as if the writing was on the wall regarding Kane’s exit from Tottenham this summer, if the club do manage to keep hold of the forward come the closure of the transfer window at the end of August, fans of Spurs will undoubtedly be buzzing.
Indeed, with Nuno Espirito Santo taking over from Jose Mourinho as Tottenham’s permanent manager at the end of last month, the 47-year-old will be hoping to build a side over the summer transfer window that is capable of much more than the seventh-place finish Spurs managed last time out next season.
And, retaining the services of a player who won both the Premier League Golden Boot and Playmaker awards last season would appear vital to Tottenham’s chances of success under their new Portuguese manager, perhaps even more so than any incoming signings.
It’s exactly why the news that Levy is not planning to let the 27-year-old leave the club this summer is good for fans, whether or not Kane himself will be pleased with the chairman’s decision.
