Some Manchester City fans optimistic Kane will join club after Nuno Espirito Santo comments

Some Manchester City fans were reacting after Harry Kane commented on new Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

In an interview with talkSPORT, the centre-forward claimed there was a level of excitement about the coach’s appointment.

The England international has been linked with a move to the Citizens this summer. It comes after he spoke about his desire to win major trophies. Reports from the Daily Star claimed Kane was ‘hellbent’ on joining Pep Guardiola’s side.

After a slow start to Euro 2020, the attacker has enjoyed better performances in recent weeks. Kane has scored in back-to-back games against Germany and Ukraine.

When talking about Nuno, Kane said: “Whenever a new manager comes in, I guess there’s a level of excitement around the club. Obviously, I’ve not been there and not had any contact with him.”


“He’s a great manager and did a great job at Wolves and got them playing a really good way. Let’s get back and I’m sure we’ll be in contact after the tournament.”

And it seems Kane is carrying out similar work with the current Spurs side.

Here is how fans reacted…
