According to a report by reliable journalist Jason Burt, writing for the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur star striker Harry Kane is ‘increasingly expected‘ to remain in north London for at least next season – coming as potentially good news for Jose Mourinho surrounding one of his most important players.
Kane, who has been urged to leave Tottenham by figures in the media to have a better chance of winning silverware, has also been linked with the likes of Man City and Man United recently.

Indeed, a recent report from the Daily Mail claimed that chairman Daniel Levy has slapped a £150 million price tag on the Englishman to ward off potential suitors as both Manchester clubs allegedly cast their eye.
Now, in an update on Kane’s future, Burt says Tottenham’s star man is ‘increasingly expected‘ to remain in north London for next season at least with Europe’s biggest clubs financially struck by a coronavirus-hit transfer market.
The Telegraph also claim that Spurs have ‘never discussed‘ a fee they would accept for Kane, in contrast to the Mail’s report.
Transfer Tavern take
It is apparently ‘highly unlikely‘ that a summer bid will be large enough to tempt Levy into selling Spurs’ club favourite, coming as a potential boost for Mourinho as he aims to deliver success.
The Lilywhites boss hailed Kane as ‘magnificent’ recently (talkSPORT), with this news possibly gifting some encouragement for Mourinho amid managerial pressure.
Time will tell what comes of this report and if an enormous offer does get lodged in the summer, but for now, this report indicates that Kane is more than likely to stay put.
