Daniel Levy had told Nuno Espirito Santo that he intends to keep Harry Kane and has instructed the Portuguese coach to start planning next season’s team with the striker in mind, according to The Sun.

Harry Kane was Tottenham’s linchpin last season, not only scoring 33 goals in 49 games across all competitions but also assisting an impressive 17 goals (TransferMarkt).

Manchester City reportedly bid £100 million for the striker this summer and City are open to discussing a player-plus-money deal but Spurs apparently have no intentions of selling their star man ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Kane has three remaining years on his contract from the six-year-deal he signed in 2018.

City have never spent over £65 million on a player but reports have suggested that Pep Guardiola wants to sign Jack Grealish and Kane this summer.

The Kane saga is one which is going to be alive for the whole summer. The thought of the 27-year-old leaving is a prospect which is a scary one for all Spurs fans, but one that this summer is starting to feel realistic.

However, with three years left on his contract, Daniel Levy holds all the power. The fact that he has reportedly told Nuno to plan the squad with Kane is promising.
