Tottenham Hotspur are telling transfer targets during their negotiations that any business they do in the last two weeks of the transfer window is not reliant on Harry Kane’s future, while also insisting they have no plans to sell the striker, according to The Daily Mail.
It is said that Spurs are telling potential recruits they have no intention to sanction the sale of the 28-year-old is not purely a negotiation tactic and has further strengthened the belief that he will remain in North London.
Kane is said to believe that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has gone back on his promise to allow him to leave the club this summer, if they failed to qualify for the Champions League or win a trophy last season.
The England captain is said to be upset at how the transfer saga has played out and wanted to leave in a straightforward manner to join Manchester City, on good terms with Levy and the North London faithful.
Kane has to respect the fact that he has three years left to run on his contract and if Levy has no desire to sell him, or does not receive a bid that makes him think otherwise then he has to get on with the job in hand at Tottenham.
As England captain, he should be setting an example for youngsters, rather than creating headlines for all the wrong reasons.
