Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho has insisted that Harry Kane will not be sold.
The Spurs striker admitted during a lockdown interview on Instagram with former midfielder Jamie Redknapp that he could leave North London if the club fail to match his ambitions (Guardian).
The Daily Mail claimed in April that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was prepared to sanction Kane’s departure of £200million from the Champions League finalists as a result of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Mourinho has set the record straight and emphasised that Spurs are not looking to sell their talisman.
Kane returned to action on Friday night for the first time since injuring his hamstring in the New Year’s Day defeat at Southampton.
Tottenham are at risk of missing out on Champions League football for the first time in five seasons after a disappointing season which has seen them fall nine points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Mourinho told Football.London: “No. What the club can do? The club doesn’t need to do anything,”
“The club just need to say, ‘Harry Kane is ours, Harry Kane has a long term contract, Harry Kane is not for sale, Harry Kane is Tottenham, Harry Kane is staying.’
“What do you have to do? You have to do nothing.”
