Former Everton striker Marcus Bent believes that Tottenham are resigned to losing Harry Kane this summer regardless of who they appoint as manager.
Kane has already made his feelings clear about wanting to leave the club, whilst several sources earlier this week reported that Manchester City have already made their first approach by bidding £100m.
Should Tottenham sign Romero?
However, Daniel Levy remains persistent on keeping the 27-year-old despite his will to move on to challenge for major trophies and consistently be playing in the Champions League.
Appointing a high-profile name like Mauricio Pochettino or Antonio Conte might have improved Spurs’ chances of keeping Kane for at least another season, but having missed out on all their top targets it seems unlikely that the striker would be tempted to hang around for someone like Graham Potter.
However, Bent exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that regardless of the incoming manager, Kane’s mind has been made up:
“I don’t think it’s on any manager coming into Tottenham that would make Kane stay.
“I think he wants to move on, there’s so much instability within the club, team, chairman and board, and they have given him everything, but now in his career he wants to go out and do something personal and look back on his career and say he made the right decision.”
