Harry Kane is unlikely to leave Tottenham this summer, according to the London Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick.
The England captain has been linked with an exit of late as a result of Spurs’ ongoing struggle to force their way into the top four. Last week we relayed a report from Italian outlet Tuttosport that suggested Juventus will consider a move for Kane if Cristiano Ronaldo does not sign a new contract.
However, it sounds like Kane is more likely to stay at Tottenham than depart. In a Q&A hosted by the Evening Standard on Monday, Kilpatrick – who is always reliable when it comes to Spurs news – revealed he cannot see Kane leaving in the next transfer window.
“I honestly cannot foresee a situation where Kane leaves,” he wrote.
He went onto give an example of why a club like Manchester United will probably pursue more affordable targets than Kane, who is likely to be priced out of a move by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
“Ultimately, I think he is worth more to Spurs than any interested club would be willing to pay,” Kilpatrick added. “Take Manchester United, who certainly admire Kane. Why would they pay Levy’s asking price when they could sign Haaland and Sancho for the same money?”
Whether Kane will be happy to stick around if there is no Champions League football at Spurs next term remains to be seen. Here’s hoping he is willing to stay regardless.
