Fabrizio Romano has said that Tottenham will not consider selling Harry Kane under any circumstances this summer and that the striker is ‘100 per cent happy’ with the club’s project.
Speculation over recent weeks have suggested that Kane is on Bayern Munich’s radar (Kicker), although it has subsequently been explained that the England captain could be a target for the Bundesliga giants for next summer rather than this one (Florian Plettenburg).
Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann added fuel to the speculation on Saturday when he described the 28-year-old as a ‘brilliant player’ and admitted that the main problem in signing him would be Spurs’ asking price (MEN).
Nagelsmann’s comments did not sit well with Antonio Conte, who suggested the Bayern boss was being disrespectful to Tottenham by talking publicly about the striker (Football.London).
Romano has now insisted there is no chance of Kane exiting Spurs this summer and that the North London club plan on opening talks with their talisman over a new contract over the coming months.
The journalist told CaughtOffside: “A lot has been said about Harry Kane and Bayern Munich, and it’s certainly true that Bayern are in love with Harry Kane.
“Julian Nagelsmann and the board consider him one of the few strikers ready to guarantee as many goals as Robert Lewandowski.
“However, this is not even a topic or a negotiation right now. Tottenham will not be negotiating for Kane this summer and there has never been any chance.
“Harry is untouchable and will play for Tottenham. The club’s idea is to negotiate a new contract in the coming months.
“Tottenham look like a completely different club now thanks to Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici; the work of both is also helping Kane who is 100% happy with the Spurs project.”

It seems like Nagelsmann’s and Oliver Kahn’s comments were aimed at sending a message to Kane’s entourage not to sign a new contract so that they can make an offer for him next summer.
However, Tottenham would be hoping that they can have a strong start to the season, which can help convince the 28-year-old to commit his future to the club.
