‘Virtually impossible’ – Sky journalist rubbishes speculation over Spurs star’s future

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol has confidently claimed that it is virtually impossible for any club to afford Harry Kane this summer.

There was already plenty of speculation about Kane’s future doing the rounds in the press but the England captain’s revelation last week has added further fuel to the fire.

The striker admitted that he will only make a decision on his future after the Euros which some Tottenham fans took as confirmation that he is set to leave.

Meanwhile,  David Ornstein has previously maintained that Tottenham still expects the striker to stay and finish his career at the club.

There have also been suggestions that the striker is currently negotiating a new contract with the Spurs hierarchy.

Solhekol has now rubbished the speculation surrounding the 27-year-old’s future, pointing out that the striker has never said that he wants to leave Tottenham.

He declared that no club is likely to pay the kind of fee it would require to sign Kane, with the striker still having three years left on his contract.

The journalist said: “There is a lot of speculation seeming to suggest that because he hasn’t won anything at Tottenham [and] he is now 27, maybe he feels this summer would be the perfect time for him to leave Spurs and move to another club where he may be able to win more trophies.

“Now, the facts of this situation are that he has never said he wants to leave Spurs.

“He has more than three years left on his Spurs contract and because of the pandemic I think it would be virtually impossible for anyone to be able to afford to sign him this summer.

“Don’t forget that Spurs are in the League Cup final so he could win a trophy against Manchester City next month and they are only three points off a Champions League place.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While some outlets have reported the part of Kane’s quotes about his future, they have conveniently left out the part where the striker goes on to suggest that this can still be a very successful season for Spurs since the club are in a cup final and within touching distance of the top four.

Of course, Kane is not going to come out and commit his future to Spurs if negotiations over a new deal are still going on behind the scenes. However, the second part of his comments suggests that he will stay put if Tottenham do have a strong finish to the season.
