According to a report by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona reportedly made an approach for Harry Kane last summer but were told by Daniel Levy that the striker was not for sale.

Kane’s future has been subject to speculation over the past few months with the striker being linked with the likes of Manchester United (Daily Mail), Real Madrid (Diario Madridista), Juventus (Tuttosport), and PSG (AS).

However, it looks like the 26-year-old could be set to stay put at Tottenham for at least one more season with no club likely to be able to meet his asking price with the striker still having four years to run on his contract (Manchester Evening News).

Mundo Deportivo claim that Barca had identified Kane as their number one target last summer as they sought to sign a centre-forward to replace Luis Suarez.

The report reveals that the Catalan giants liked the Spurs star’s profile with the club president Josep Maria Bartomeu contacting Levy to ask about the striker’s availability.

It is claimed that Levy told Bartomeu in no uncertain terms that the England captain is not for sale under any circumstances, and that he was crucial to Spurs as they embarked on their first full season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Harry Kane is worth more to Tottenham than he is to any other club as he has come to personify Spurs on and off the pitch. Levy knows this and will do everything he can to keep the striker in North London for as long as he can. However, if we show no signs of improvement next season, perhaps the 26-year-old will be tempted to leave next summer.
