Tottenham told Paulo Fonseca that Harry Kane will not be sold this summer during talks over the vacant managerial post, according to Football London.
Kane’s future has been the source of speculation for weeks now, and on Monday the Guardian reported that Manchester City have already made an offer to Spurs.
The offer is said to be £100 million plus the possibility to include one or more City players as part of the deal – though Tottenham’s stance is understood to be that Kane isn’t for sale at any price.
In theory every player has their price, but it seems Spurs chairman Daniel Levy could really be completely ruling out Kane’s departure this summer.
Football London claims Spurs told Fonseca, who held talks over the Tottenham job earlier this month, to plan for the coming season with Kane because the England captain won’t be sold.
If true, that would be a huge promise to break to an incoming manager, so perhaps Levy is serious.
It’s hard to ignore the fact City could significantly up their bid, which would surely tempt Tottenham into selling – but right now it looks like Kane is more likely to stay than leave.
