Davinson Sanchez has insisted that Harry Kane’s Tottenham teammates will be fully supportive of the striker’s decision irrespective of whether he stays or leaves.
The speculation linking Kane with a move to Manchester City continues to rumble on, with many influential sources at City allegedly expecting the striker to join this week.
However, some reports have also indicated that Daniel Levy is set to hold on to Kane for another season.
The striker was absent from Tottenham’s matchday squad for their 1-0 win over the Premier League champions on Sunday, with Nuno Espirito Santo insisting the striker was not fully up to speed due to minimal training.
One man who started Nuno’s first game in charge, Sanchez, has now spoken about the 28-year-old’s future and brushed aside any doubts over the striker’s professionalism.
The Colombian admitted that he and his teammates would be delighted to welcome Kane back into the fold if he does end up staying at the club.
Sanchez told The Sun: “If he has the chance to be with us on the pitch then, of course, he’s going to help us, no doubt about it.
“Everybody here knows just how professional he is and no one can have any doubts about how good he is as a player.
“We are just on his side and any decision that happens or he makes then we are going to support him, because he gives everything for the club.
“In my position, he helps me a lot as a player and as a leader, he’s been very humble.
“I could keep going, I will never stop about how good he is as a person.”
The defender refused to get drawn into specifics regarding Kane’s future but waxed lyrical about the striker’s quality.
Sanchez added: “Harry is the best No 9 in the world, there’s no doubt about it.
“If someone says differently they just do not understand football.
“I’m his team-mate so I can’t get deep into the situation because it’s one that is being discussed between Harry and the people above.
“We are just here to support him and if something happens then we are always going to be on his side.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Reading between the lines of what the various Spurs players have said about Kane, I suspect they believe that he is off. However, if the 28-year-old does end up staying, I would expect him to reintegrate into the side seamlessly and produce the goods on the pitch again.
