Striker flattered by interest, but doesn’t want transfer away
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has admitted he’s flattered with Manchester United’s interest, but insists he has no plans on leaving White Hart Lane.
The England international is currently away with the England U-21s at the European Championships, and when asked about the transfer speculation and his future, Kane was very open and honest about there his feelings lie.
Kane was on the losing end last night in England’s first game as they fell to a 1-0 defeat to Portugal, but after the game, he was questioned about his club future, and he admitted that there is no plans on leaving North London just yet.
‘I have seen there is interest but that’s all I know,’ said Kane.
‘It’s flattering for other clubs to maybe be interested.
‘I am happy at Spurs and I look forward to the future with Spurs.
‘Tottenham are one of the big clubs. That is the way people have to see it. I am at big club.’
Breakthrough Campaign/United Keen
The 21-year-old had a breakthrough season last year, scoring 31 goals in all competitions and winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award at the end of season ceremony.
However, after his stunning season for Mauricio Pochettino‘s men, interest in him is high and Manchester United have been linked with making a formal move for him.
Spurs reacted quickly to the speculation by slapping a £50million price-tag on the striker’s head, in an attempt to put off Louis Van Gaal.
