Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer has told This Is Futbol in an exclusive interview that there is no chance of Harry Kane leaving Tottenham for rivals Chelsea this summer.
The above has thrown his future at the north London club into doubt. And, according to Football Insider, Chelsea are now one of the frontrunners to sign Kane in what would go down as arguably one of the most controversial transfers of all time.
Would Kane leave Tottenham for Chelsea?
Not in a million years
I can see him in blue
For Palmer, however, it is a transfer that has no chance of materialising. Speaking exclusively to TIF about the speculation, the ex-Sheffield Wednesday player said:
“That’s never going to happen. That’s never going to happen. I think if Harry Kane left Tottenham and he didn’t go abroad, I actually think Harry Kane would end up at Manchester United.”
Given Tottenham’s rivalry with Chelsea and the legacy Kane has built in the white half of north London, a move to Stamford Bridge really does look impossible.
Considering the direction Spurs are heading in right now, you probably cannot write off an exit altogether, though.
