The Lowdown: Kane flounders in summer exit bid…
One of the main Premier League transfer sagas of the summer window came in the form of Kane’s desire to swap Tottenham for Manchester City.
The Latest: Burt drops behind-the-scenes claim…
Speaking on The Kelly and Wrighty Show, as transcribed by The Boot Room, Kane still believes he is leaving N17 and expects a move next year.
Indeed, the England international has already ‘mentally’ left Tottenham, with Burt believing that club chairman Daniel Levy could possibly grant the striker his wish next year.
“I think they will let him go next year, but he wanted to go this year. That’s the problem. Mentally, he is out of the door,” the journalist said.
“He is thinking he is going. Pep Guardiola tried to sign him, not just Manchester City – Guardiola really wanted him.”
The Verdict: Blow for Nuno?
Tasked with the mountainous challenge of steering Spurs back on course following a turbulent last six months, one of Nuno Espirito Santo’s biggest obstacles is nurturing wantaway stars Tanguy Ndombele and Kane back into the side.
Both players were eyeing moves away from Spurs in the summer and it appears that the latter is already looking ahead to future transfer windows, going by this report.
In a situation which could prove difficult for Nuno to overcome, these next few months will truly test whether all can be harmonious once again at Hotspur Way.
That’s not to mention that it could be huge to miss Kane on the field, especially since he has been described as ‘underrated’ by sections of the press considering his phenomenal goal return of 223 in 341 appearances for Tottenham.
