Report: Tottenham think it is impossible that Harry Kane leaves
Tottenham Hotspur believes it is impossible that Harry Kane will leave the club this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
What’s the story?
Manchester City have been chasing the England captain all summer long.
However, a move has failed to materialise with the Citizens, so far, failing to match Daniel Levy’s demands of £150m.
Now it seems Spurs think they will keep their prized asset from the clutches of the Premier League champions.
The Daily Mail have revealed details over City’s opening offer for Kane. The Blues made a £100m offer, with £75m up front and another £25m in add-ons.
It is impossible Kane leaves Tottenham
Earlier in the year, there was a real worry the centre-forward would leave the club.
City had a keen interest in the player, who was going public with his desire to depart north London.
His interview with Gary Neville made his intentions public and threw the gauntlet back to Levy. However, the Spurs chief has handled the situation perfectly, sticking to his asking price.
It is a tactic that has worked, with it looking nigh-on impossible for the ace to leave before next week’s deadline.
And it will only benefit Nuno Espirito Santo, whose side have looked solid at the start of the season.
The club have been fairly average in attack, but it is nothing one of the Premier League’s best strikers cannot fix.
Keeping Kane would be a massive boost for the north Londoners, who will only go from strength to strength with the 28-year-old back in the team.
