Tottenham player delivers honest verdict on new Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo

Nuno Espirito Santo finally put an end to Tottenham’s search for a new manager, last week. The Portuguese gaffer inked a two-year deal with the North London club, and was seen at the club’s training ground on Tuesday as pre-season starts. Harry Kane has given his verdict on the new gaffer.

Nuno has plenty to do before the start of the new season. The main priority will be keeping Kane, who won the golden boot and playmaker awards last season. Numerous reports suggest that he wants to join Manchester City this summer. But a hefty price tag could see Daniel Levy scupper such a move.

New additions and the futures of Erik Lamela, Serge Aurier and Hugo Lloris are also on the agenda – with the trio out of contract in less than a year. Asked for his verdict on the appointment of Nuno, Kane stated he caught the eye at Wolves. Kane also said he will speak to Nuno, soon.

“I guess there’s a level of excitement around the club when a new manager comes in. Obviously, I’ve not had any contact with him,” Kane told talkSPORT. “A great manager, did a great job at Wolves. Got them playing a really good way. I’m sure we’ll be in contact after the tournament.”

Can Nuno keep Kane at Tottenham?

Nuno himself? No. It is going to take a collective effort from Tottenham’s hierarchy to convince Kane to stay put for another season – having done so under Jose Mourinho last summer. But realistically, Kane will go if the price tag is met. Whether the price tag will be met is another story.

Daniel Levy has set the bar at £150million and given it is Levy in control, that bar will not move. It will not be lowered. Kane will only be sold if that price is met, or a player-plus-cash deal is tabled and the deal is given approval by Levy. So yes, Nuno could keep Kane, but it is down to Levy.
