Joe Hart messages Harry Kane on Instagram after statement on Spurs future
Joe Hart was amongst those to send a message to Harry Kane on Instagram after the Spurs talisman confirmed that he will be staying put this summer.
Kane, of course, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City in this window.
However, as each day passed, it appeared harder and harder to imagine City putting a deal together that would tempt Daniel Levy into selling his talisman.
And Football London reported on Wednesday that Kane had accepted that he would be staying at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Shortly after, the striker himself took to social media to confirm that he will not be leaving the club in this window.
Here is what Kane posted…
Understandably, the post prompted a strong reaction. Amongst those to reply were Lucas Moura and Hart.
The goalkeeper – who spent a year at Spurs before joining Celtic this summer – offered some advice to the 28-year-old…
Nuno may actually welcome Kane being motivated by prospect of future move with striker set to stay at Spurs
Kane has brought an end to speculation over his future this summer.
However, Tottenham fans will not be naive. They will be aware that rumours will likely continue while he remains one of the world’s best.
Unfortunately, anyone believing that the saga is now over is probably set for a nasty surprise. It seems that Kane will be regularly asked about what his long-term future holds.
And it would be no surprise if links with City start up again as next summer looms on the horizon.
What happens then remains to be seen. But if he is keen to leave, Spurs should have little problem with Kane using his time on the pitch to prove a point to Pep Guardiola’s side.
If he is linked with another £150 million move next year, it will likely mean he will have had another stunning season.
Spurs will certainly be winners in many ways if that is the case.
