Will Kane still be a Spurs player come next season?
Amid Tottenham’s search for a new manager, Gold insisted he can not see the talisman being sold with Antonio Conte supposedly close to becoming the next Spurs manager.
Speaking prior to those reports being dismissed following an apparent breakdown in talks, Gold discussed where possible transfer funds may come from this summer, saying:
“The other place that money comes from is selling Harry Kane. That, for me, I can’t imagine, purely because of what I’ve said before about the huge astronomical price.
“Although I did wonder after that Champions League final whether Man City might have thought, ‘stuff this, we need to sign him. It doesn’t matter now, you know, we can’t muck around.’
“But the flip side of that is I feel and everything we know about Conte, he adores Harry Kane, he sees him as the absolute pinnacle of being a striker.
“And obviously, he’s only got better since Conte said all of that. So I’d be stunned if Spurs now decided to sell Kane.”
TIF Thoughts on Kane’s future…
It remains to be seen if Gold would still be stunned should Kane’s future further hang in the balance following the latest news on Conte, which emerged late on Friday evening.
Unfortunately for Kane, his future likely lies out of his own hands as it will require one of the interested clubs to submit a huge bid for him to see Levy even consider allowing Kane to leave.
Given the expected financial struggles experienced by football clubs this summer, is there any club that will be able to put forward a bid that Spurs would acknowledge?
Without the safety net of a manager like Conte arriving, as Gold mooted, perhaps there is still the chance a club may yet take the plunge.
