New Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo fired a hands-off warning to clubs interested in signing Harry Kane, saying on Friday (July 17) the England striker was crucial to the Premier League club’s ambitions next season.
Reports in May said Kane, who has a contract with the north London club until 2024, had informed Spurs of his desire to leave this summer after another trophy-less campaign.
Tottenham, who were top of the table in December, finished seventh last season after Jose Mourinho was sacked. Former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno was hired last month after a number of candidates were linked with the job.
“Harry is our player, period. No need to talk about anything else,” Nuno said at his first news conference.
“Now is the time for Harry to recover his energy and rest (after the European Championship). When he returns is the time to talk, he needs to prepare for what’s to come.”
Kane scored four goals at Euro 2020 to help England reach the final where they lost on penalties to Italy.
“I have no doubts in my mind… When he arrives (back) he will feel that everyone of us has to commit ourselves to become better. We are very ambitious, we are ambitious people and we want to do it well and no doubts on Harry on that,” added Nuno.
