Tottenham have learned of Harry Kane’s stance on his future with the club if Mauricio Pochettino makes a comeback this summer, a report claims.
After a disappointing season, Kane has made it known that he wants to leave. Spurs finished seventh, only enough to qualify for the new Europa Conference League. As a result, the England striker is set to push for a move away with the aim of winning major trophies elsewhere.
Clubs from around Europe have been linked, including Real Madrid and PSG. There is also interest from within the Premier League, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea considering swoops.
As thing stand, it is unclear who is the favourite to land his signature. Although, one pundit has suggested a switch to Old Trafford may be most appealing to him.
Spurs are understandably reluctant to let him leave, but their hand may be forced.
Pochettino comeback not enough for Kane
And any hopes they had of convincing him to stay by using the potential return of Pochettino have been dealt a major blow.
Kane became the player he is while working with the Argentine coach, scoring 169 goals in 242 appearances under him. He was sacked in November 2019, but could be about to head back to North London.
Although, Real Madrid are also interested after Zinedine Zidane quit Los Blancos for a second time last week.
But should Tottenham convince him to re-join, there had been some talk Kane would re-think his decision.
However, the Daily Express report that won’t be the case. They say that the forward is of the opinion that the squad would still be in need of ‘significant investment’ to challenge for silverware.
With Kane now 27, it appears he feels he does not have time to waste in regard to pursuing his dream of winning trophies.
That’s certainly the opinion of Dimitar Berbatov, who has warned Kane he could become Spurs’ version of Matt Le Tissier.
Therefore, it is likely Spurs will be on the search for a replacement whether they land Pochettino or not.
