Harry Kane ‘will STILL demand a Tottenham exit even if Mauricio Pochettino returns to the the club’ with ‘verbal agreement’ in place with Daniel Levy over summer move
- Harry Kane still has his mind set on leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer
- Reports claim he will want to depart even if Mauricio Pochettino comes back
- Pochettino is interested in a return due to internal politics at Paris Saint Germain
- Kane thrived under Pochettino but has a ‘verbal agreement’ in place to walk out
Harry Kane will still insist on walking away from Tottenham and pursuing the next step of his career elsewhere even if Mauricio Pochettino returns to the club, according to reports.
Last month Kane dropped the bombshell that he is ready to leave north London in order to further his career and finally add club silverware to his personal trophy cabinet.
As recently revealed by Sportsmail, Pochettino is now interested in coming back to Spurs this summer after political turmoil at PSG, but fresh reports state Kane has made his mind up on leaving regardless of who the new manager is.
Harry Kane will still press on with leaving Tottenham even if Mauricio Pochettino comes back
Kane, 27, has informed the chairman, Daniel Levy, of his intention to move on and believes they have a verbal agreement from last summer that he will be allowed to do so, despite three years remaining on his contract.
The England captain will continue about his plans to leave his boyhood club even if Pochettino’s reunion with the club comes to fruition, according to the Times.
Kane worked well under Pochettino and developed into one of the best strikers on the planet under the guidance of the Argentine, with the pair coming close to tasting Champions League glory in 2019.
Spurs lost to Liverpool in the Madrid final, and Kane has since missed out again on the opportunity for silverware after the club were beaten by Manchester City in this season’s Carabao Cup final.
Kane became one of the world’s best strikers under the Argentine but is focused on moving on
City are now favourites to sign Kane this summer, with the striker understood to be keen to remain in English football.
The Etihad club are seeking a replacement for Sergio Aguero, who was unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday.
Continuing in the Premier League would enable Kane to continue pressing on with tracking down Alan Shearer’s all-time record goalscoring haul, and the England legend himself has this week backed Kane to dazzle at the European championships.
‘He comes into it after winning the Golden Boot in the World Cup and he’ll also probably come into it on the back of having to sort his future out with Spurs,’ the former Newcastle and England striker said.
Alan Shearer is confident England captain Harry Kane will not be distracted by his club future
‘I went into Euro 96 with Blackburn and of course had the tournament and then had a decision to make myself after it. It sounds like he’s made that decision already. I don’t think that will affect him at all, even if it’s not sorted out, which we don’t think it will be.
‘But with the talent (in the squad), with the added options of our full-backs – whether he plays three or four at the back – then I’m pretty sure that Harry will score goals and will be right up there challenging for that Golden Boot.
‘I’ve no doubt about that. I’m fairly confident of that.’
