Tottenham Hotspur are holding on to Harry Kane, while chairman Daniel Levy is angry at the news about his captain behaving as he continues to push for a transfer from the club this summer.
Over the weekend, a story broke that Kane – who has made clear his ambitions to leave Tottenham in search of cutlery – had been told that he would be allowed to join Manchester City.
However, Tottenham were quick to deny that they had regretted in their attitude that they did not want to sell Kane – which 90 minutes confirmed – and the club shows no signs of changing their mind about their captain, who turns 28 later this week.
City also made claims that they had agreed a deal worth £ 160 million for the English striker – despite being very interested.
Other reports have since emerged that Kane and his team are still convinced that an agreement will be reached eventually, despite Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s public stance.
90 minutes have been told that Levy was far from amused with the weekend stories that Kane had already agreed on a move and that he himself had withdrawn.
Kane has a contract with Tottenham for another three years and Spurs have insisted all summer that they do not want him to leave and do not listen to offers.
Levy and Tottenham believe that Kane should give the new manager Nuno Espirito Santo and football manager Fabio Paratici a chance to show what they can do.
While it is said that Kane has already agreed on personal terms with City, one issue in his quest to leave this summer is that real suitors have been few and far between. Due to its value, the market is limited.
Apart from Man City, Chelsea are still in contact while the French giants Paris Saint-Germain are also following closely and Kylian Mbappe would leave this summer.
But as it now stands, Tottenham are planning for Kane to start (and end) the next Premier League season with them – although it is unlikely that he will appear for any team on the curtain increase on August 15 due to an extended summer break after Euro.
