Report details what Harry Kane thought of songs sung by Tottenham fans during 1-0 win over Manchester City
A long-winded report from The Telegraph claims that Harry Kane watched Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday. It claims Kane acknowledged the songs sung by Tottenham fans – and his view on those songs. Spurs fans sung “Are you watching Harry Kane”, during the win.
Son Heung-min scored the only goal of the game as Nuno Espirito Santo got off to the best possible start as Tottenham boss – beating Manchester City. Tactically, the Portuguese gaffer got it bang on. That is, even without the presence of 28-year-old Kane – who was not visible at the stadium.
During the game, Spurs fans directed songs towards Kane – amid reports he could still join Manchester City this summer. Daniel Levy continues to play hard ball. The Telegraph’s Jason Burt writes that Kane accepted the reaction from Spurs fans, but hope they understand his want and desire to leave.
“He watched the game on television and heard the fans chanting ‘Are you watching Harry Kane?’ towards the end of of the unexpected victory,” Burt wrote. “According to sources Kane fully accepts the reaction but also hopes that the fans will understand his position.
“Particularly after all the successful years of service he has given to the club, where he came through the academy, and the way he has conducted himself. Wanting to leave is not a slight to the supporters or club but a sign of his ambition,” Burt continued on the Telegraph’s website.
Kane will only leave Tottenham if Levy demands met, after songs
Or, Manchester City up the fee they are willing to pay. Some reports currently suggest that Pep Guardiola’s side are willing to pay £127million. But those in punditry roles believe that if Jack Grealish is worth £100million, Kane should be at a much bigger price.
At the end of the day, Tottenham will only sell Kane if Daniel Levy is satisfied. Right now, the only way of satisfying Levy in this scenario is by meeting his asking price for Kane – a fee of £150million. Signing a six-year deal without a release clause means Levy is entitled to request his fee.
