Journalist explains key reason why Harry Kane will not be sold by Spurs

The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick has confidently claimed that Tottenham will not be selling Harry Kane this summer.

Kane’s future has been the subject of speculation over recent weeks with the England striker reportedly open to a new challenge after becoming increasingly frustrated at the prospect of playing under Jose Mourinho (The Express).

Manchester United have reportedly made him their top priority when the transfer market reopens in the summer with the Red Devils said to be long-time admirers of the Spurs striker (Evening Standard).

Serie A champions Juventus have also been linked with a move for the England captain, as they seek to bolster their attack at the end of the campaign (Tuttosport).

However, Kilpatrick believes the 26-year-old is worth more to Tottenham than any other club with the likes of Manchester United being able to sign other targets for a lower fee.

When asked about the possibility of Kane leaving Tottenham during a Q&A session, Kilpatrick said: “Assuming you mean this summer (or in the next transfer window), I honestly cannot foresee a situation where Kane leaves.

“Ultimately, I think he is worth more to Spurs than any interested club would be willing to pay.

“Take Manchester United, who certainly admire Kane. Why would they pay Levy’s asking price when they could sign Haaland and Sancho for the same money?”

Spurs Web Opinion

There is simply no chance that Daniel Levy will allow Harry Kane to leave this summer given the fact that he still has four more years to run on his contract. However, I can see the striker becoming frustrated if we don’t show any signs of improvement next season and potentially putting in a transfer request. However, I don’t think there is any chance of that happening this summer.
