Kane: My conscience is clear after failed move away from Tottenham
Harry Kane has claimed his ‘conscience is clear’ about his desire to leave Tottenham Hotspur.
What’s the story?
Speaking to talkSPORT, the England international has been speaking about his failed move to Manchester City.
The Citizens were eager to sign the Spurs player on a permanent deal this summer.
Pep Guardiola’s men had a bid worth a reported £100m rejected for the centre-forward.
Kane’s attempts to force through a move saw the 28-year-old conduct an interview with Gary Neville.
In the YouTube video, the attacker spoke of how he was in charge of deciding where his future lies.
However, after much too-ing and froing, Daniel Levy’s stubbornness paid off and Kane confirmed he would be staying last week.
When talking about this summer’s events, Kane said: “I think anyone involved in the football industry knows the ins and outs. I was quite calm with the situation, but when you’re in it and you know the truth, then your conscience is clear.”
“There’s always going to be noise. My whole career I’ve had ups and downs from when I’m young to where I am, that’s just part of the parcel of it.”
Kane did nothing wrong in the way he looked to leave Tottenham
Seeking a move away in search of trophies is fairly common, and expected of high-quality footballers.
Kane certainly falls into that category and the star did nothing wrong in how he went about looking to depart Tottenham this summer.
It would not be a stretch to claim the ace is too good for the north Londoners as he has shown during his time in N17.
The ace has scored 17+ goals in the Premier League for each of the last seven seasons.
He deserved an opportunity to turn out for a club, who will challenge for trophies, like City.
Unfortunately, Spurs are not in a position where they are competing for trophies.
But, with Kane at the club and now committed, Nuno will be hoping the saga is behind everyone.
