Harry Kane is reportedly set to stay at Tottenham this summer despite strong Manchester City’s interest in landing the £150million-rated striker before the end of the window.
According to The Sunday Times, the 28-year-old is now increasingly likely to remain at Tottenham for at least one more season.
Contrary to reports, it is understood that there have been no recent discussions between the clubs regarding Kane.
Chairman Daniel Levy believes Pep Guardiola’s side have ‘left it too late’ to negotiate for the England captain.
There are 17 days remaining of the summer transfer window and the report adds that the limited time left to strike a mega-deal for Kane means he is likely to commit to Tottenham for at least one more season.
At the end of the campaign, he will have two years remaining on his contract and is then once again likely to evaluate his future.
Levy has always been a fiercely determined chairman at Tottenham and has often kept players against their wishes, Luka Modric in 2011 for instance.
Kane returned to training on Friday with a negative Covid test following an extended holiday in the Bahamas and USA.
Boss Nuno Espirito Santo will now decide whether Kane can be included in his match-day squad for his first game against Man City today.
