It seems that the summer of English club Tottenham will be hot, after the future of captain and striker Harry Kane returned to the surface, a few days after Spurs club president Daniel Levy confirmed that the player would remain at White Hart Lane for the new season.
Harry Kane, 24, was linked with a move to Manchester City, for 100 million pounds, before Tottenham president Daniel Levy came out and confirmed his club’s unwillingness to sell his brilliant striker.
In turn, the new Portuguese coach, Nuno Espirito Santo, entered the controversy surrounding Harry, when he confirmed in his first press conference that Harry Kane was included in his calculations for the new season.
“After I arrived at the club, I listened to the management, and I asked them if I could work and bet on Kane in the new season, and they assured me of that, so Kane will be with us next season,” Santo said. He’s one of the best players in the world and now he’s with us, so we’re proud of all of that.”
Santo denied having any talks with Harry Kane so far, due to the latter entering his annual vacation, after England lost the Euro 2020 title against Italy, and said that this is the situation with the rest of his teammates, explaining that it is unacceptable to communicate with them now.
Amid much talk about Kane’s future, the British Daily Telegraph reported today, Saturday, that Harry may not return to training with Tottenham, in preparation for the new season, when his annual vacation ends, according to his England teammates.
The newspaper said that the majority of his colleagues believe that he will not train with Tottenham again, in order to pressure his club’s management to agree to his transfer offers to Manchester City, who are most interested in including him.
And the newspaper confirmed that Harry Kane has a verbal agreement with club president Danny Levy, to listen to any offer of up to 100 million pounds, in order to fulfill the player’s desire to move to a team that achieves great trophies with him.
In turn, and despite his adherence to Harry Kane, Danny Levy fears the scenario of Gareth Bale in 2013, who rebelled against the club’s training at the time, in order to pressure the process of facilitating his departure to Real Madrid, which has already taken place.
Manchester City turned its link towards Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski, due to his failure to persuade Tottenham Hotspur to abandon England international, Harry Kane.
According to press reports, the London club rejected the offer, which amounted to 100 million pounds.
And the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, said that City officials are monitoring the developments of the 32-year-old’s position on the renewal with the Bavarian club, with two years remaining until the expiration of his current contract, according to which he receives more than 300,000 pounds per week.
It seems that City’s possible move towards Lewandowski came at the request of Spanish coach Pep Guardiola, who had previously brought the Polish striker to Bayern Munich, in a free transfer deal in 2014.
The duo worked for two years at the Allianz Arena, during which time they won the Bundesliga twice, in addition to the German Cup, before Guardiola left for the heavenly team in 2016.
Lewandowski is one of the strong candidates for the Ballon d’Or award, for the year 2021, after crowning the Bundesliga’s top scorer last season with 41 goals, which enabled him to win the European Golden Boot for the first time in his career.
