Tottenham’s Fabio Paratici sends clear message on Harry Kane future

Tottenham Hotspur’s ‘goal as a club’ is to keep Harry Kane this summer, says their new Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici, despite the striker wanting to leave.

Kane is captaining England at Euro 2020, scoring three goals so far on their run to the semi-finals where they meet Denmark on Wednesday night at Wembley.

Before the tournament started, though, reports emerged that he wants to leave Spurs this summer, with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United all immediately linked.

It would now seem that Manchester City are the likeliest destination for Kane, although Spurs have already turned down a bid of £100m for their star player and Paratici insists they will do their best to keep hold of him.

The Italian, who arrived from Juventus in June, says he is yet to speak to Kane, but cannot wait to see him turn out for Tottenham when he returns from international duty.

‘Keeping him is not just my goal, it’s our goal as a club,’ Paratici told Sky Sports of Kane’s future.

‘I can’t wait to watch him play live … Right now, he’s one of the best strikers in the world. He’s a complete player, really special.

‘I haven’t heard from him yet because I don’t want to bother the players who are busy at the Euros, it doesn’t seem fair to me. They’re focused on their own goals with their national teams.’

Kane has made little comment on his future since linking up with England, just saying that his focus is on the Euros and his club commitments will be sorted as and when the tournament is over for the Three Lions.

‘It’s been ok. I’m sure I’ll get asked about it a lot but my most important thing is trying to win a major tournament with England,’ Kane told the BBC at the start of England’s campaign.

‘The rest of the stuff will happen obviously when I get back from the tournament but for now that’s all I’m focused on.”

‘I’m not someone who listens to the noise anyway, whether it’s good or bad to be honest.’

Since those comments Spurs have appointed Nuno Espirito Santo as manager, who wants to talk to Kane as quickly as possible after Euro 2020 and iron out his plans.
