Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham Hotspur continues to be in doubt but the managers of the top clubs linked with him ahead of the summer transfer window chose to avoid transfer talks concerning the Three Lions captain.
The Englishman has reportedly told Tottenham that he wants to leave after being frustrated with the club’s lack of major progress in recent seasons.
The likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Manchester United are the English clubs who may be able to afford the striker in the summer and have been heavily linked with a move for him.
However, when Pep Guardiola was asked about Kane during the post-match interview after his side’s Premier League 3:2 loss away to Brighton at the Amex on Tuesday, he replied: “Next question. He’s a Tottenham Hotspur player”
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also refused to make any comments on the player: “I can’t comment on other teams’ players and what’s being speculated and said.
“I want to show the respect Tottenham deserve as well to not talk about other teams’ players.”
Meanwhile, Edinson Cavani was on hand to score a screamer from 35 yards in the 1 all draw against Fulham at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. He recently extended his contract with the Red Devils but the Norwegian boss revealed that the club could still sign another striker in the summer.
When asked if Cavani’s new deal would stop the club from making a move for any striker in the summer, Solskjaer responded: “No, of course I can’t. Yeah, Edi signed but how many good strikers have we had at this club?
“I can’t say we’re not signing a striker, of course not, because we’re building, we’re working towards a better squad.
“We’re top three two years on the bounce but still not where we want to be.
“Hopefully we’ll end up with a stronger squad when we start next season and be more consistent to challenge the ones in front of us.”
Regardless, Spurs’ interim boss Ryan Mason says he’s not aware of the demand by Kane to the club that he wants to leave in the summer. The England striker has 3 years left on his current contract and it is believed that the North Londoners will demand in excess of £150million for the player.
