Tottenham are set to keep hold of Harry Kane this summer after setting a £175 million ($242m) price tag for the England star and long-term Chelsea transfer target.
Regarded as one of the very best strikers on the planet right now, Kane is a player that is being chased by all the biggest clubs, with our club once of those outfits that may be interested in a deal at the end of the season.
To date he has scored 215 goals in 327 appearances in all competitions, making him Spurs’ second highest scorer of all time behind Jimmy Greaves, but with Spurs not able to win the trophies that he would like, there has been constant speculation in the media.
Spurs are in no mood to let their star man leave the club in the transfer window and are hoping that that massive price tag of £175 million will be enough to keep all those chasing clubs from making an offer in the summer
Kane, meanwhile, is open to staying with Spurs, his boyhood club, as they continue their pursuit of a much-needed trophy, as long as they help him achieve his goals of winning that Premier League title.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is not concerned by Harry Kane’s uncertain comments about his future at the club and says the striker should be happy with his current situation.
Kane raised eyebrows during the international break when he said the topic of his future at Spurs was a “hard question to answer right now” and that “we’ll see where we go” after this summer’s European Championship.
The England captain, who still has another three years left on his current contract, has been honest in the past about being content to say at the north London club providing he sees suitable progression, but with Mourinho’s side enduring an inconsistent season, speculation has been rife about a possible move away.
Asked whether he was bothered that Kane was not more defiant in his commitment to the club, Mourinho said: “No. No. I want Harry to be with us what he has been. I want Harry to repeat against Newcastle the same performance he had against Aston Villa.
“When I say the same performance, I mean the same commitment, the same desire, the same team spirit, the same leadership. That’s what I want and I know that I’m going to have that.
“I cannot play that game (of speculation). I have to focus on what he is for us.”
