The future of Harry Kane has dominated the summer transfer window with the England captain’s tenure at Tottenham Hotspur having been called into question.
The Daily Mail claim that Tottenham are confident of keeping hold of the 28-year-old for the current campaign, with just eight days of the current window left to run until it closes until January.
It is said that Manchester City’s initial offer for Kane in June consisted of a £75million fee, along with a further £25million in add-ons to take the figure to £100million.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy values Kane in the region of £150million with club insiders believing that a move to the Etihad now appears to be ‘virtually impossible’ for the forward.
Levy is reported to be more determined than ever to keep his star player in North London with City tipped to make a fresh approach this week, which could be in the region of £125million.
Kane made his first appearance of the season for Tottenham on Sunday when he came off the bench in the second half of the 1-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Losing Kane at any time would be catastrophic, however, if Spurs were to sell him with less than a week to run before the window closed would be a case of hitting the self destruct button, regardless of what fee City are prepared to pay.
