Harry Kane has disclosed that he has had no contact with Tottenham Hotspur regarding his future as he focuses on bringing his best to the table for England in the knockout stage of the ongoing Euro 2020 competition.
Kane’s future at Spurs has been heavily speculated in recent weeks after he reportedly told the club that he wants to leave this summer, amid Manchester City supposedly tabling a bid of £100m.
Meanwhile, the Three Lions captain has not been at his best in the ongoing Euros and has not scored since the competition began. However, he has not been getting the required service upfront.
According to the striker, the two issues are not related and he added that he hasn’t spoken to his brother Charlie who is also his agent and the club about his future.
The 27-year-old said: “To be honest, I feel like when I come away with England I’m just fully focused on England.
“My brother is my agent, but the only time I’ve spoken to my brother really over the last few weeks is, ‘Good luck, let’s get a win, and let’s take England all the way’.
“After the games, I’ll have one of the club physios just checking up, making sure that everything is okay, but other than that, not really (any contact). I have good luck messages and things like that but nothing to do with the personal stuff with the club really.
“So, it doesn’t really bother me about the outside noise. When I’m here I’m with the boys, I try to help the boys, be a leader in the team. I need to get to know the boys, see what makes certain players tick and helping the younger lads, so I feel like I’ve got enough on my plate to worry about anything outside of England.
“That’s where I’m at and of course I feel like it’s one of them where if you’re not scoring as a striker, people look for every little angle why you’re not scoring and that’s probably the case in this tournament so far.
“But like I said, as long as I’m focused, I’ve got the self-belief I have, I’m not worried about anyone else.
“If I’m totally honest I don’t really read anything, no media.
“The most important thing is about us as a group and us a staff and as a nation and when you are in these tournament modes, sometimes it’s easy to get caught away with other stuff, but the experience I’ve had in the last few tournaments is just to focus on this and do what you can at the moment and leave no regrets.”
Meanwhile, Harry Kane’s performance will yet again be under scrutiny when England face one of their biggest rivals Germany in the Euro 2020 round-of-16 stage.
The striker would be expected to bring his A-game to the table if the Three Lions want to get a significant win against their rivals and subsequently knock them out of the competition.
