Tottenham maintain they have no intention of selling Harry Kane this summer.
In outstanding form in 2020/21 under Jose Mourinho as he registered 33 goals and 17 assists in all competitions, Spurs’ failure to qualify for the Champions League has once again brought his future into question.
Amid reports in May that he has asked to leave the Lilywhites for a new challenge elsewhere, Man City have been the favourites to sign the England captain as they look to bring in a new striker to replace Sergio Aguero.
The Sun reported on Thursday evening that Daniel Levy has now given the green light for the striker to join Man City in a staggering £160million move.
However, amid the reports, Spurs maintain they have no plans to part with Kane this summer.
Nuno Espirito Santo also made the club’s stance on the 27-year-old pretty clear last Friday when speaking to the media for the very first time as Spurs head coach.
A press conference that was always going to have numerous questions about Kane given talk of a summer exit, the new boss stated that he is looking forward to working with the frontman.
“Harry is our player, period. No need to talk about anything else,” he outlined. “Now is the moment for Harry to recover his energy, to rest.
“When he comes again we will have time to speak. We will have good conversations, but now is the moment for Harry to rest and to prepare for what’s coming, and I’m looking forward to him joining the group and start working together.”
When asked if he needed clarity on Kane’s future, he added: “I have no doubts in my mind. I have no doubts.
“What I wish is for Harry to recover well, to have a good rest and when he arrives he will feel that everyone of us has to commit ourselves to become better.
“We are very ambitious, we are ambitious people and we want to do it well and no doubts on Harry on that.”
