Tottenham Hotspur pleaded with Harry Kane to follow the path of Francesco Totti to turn down numerous offers to remain with his boyhood club, according to the BBC.

Totti spent his entire career at Roma where he won just one Serie A title in a 25-year playing career having scored 307 goals in 786 matches in all competitions for the Italian outfit.

The forward admitted to turning down a move to Real Madrid during the era of the galacticos and revealed that he did not regret his decision given the fact that he was able to play for the team he supported as a boy for such a long period (AS).

The report claims that the 27-year-old has not handed in a written transfer request or made it clear of his intention to leave which is a contradiction of Sky Sports who reported that Kane had reiterated his desire to leave North London this summer.

The Athletic claim that Spurs have no appetite to sell Kane ahead of next season with Daniel Levy prepared to prove the England international wrong over an assumed gentleman’s agreement.
