Transfer: Harry Kane Staying At Tottenham
New Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo says he has been told to count on having Harry Kane around next season, but Gareth Bale will not be returning.
The England captain is keen to leave this summer in order to further his career, but Spurs hold all of the power as the striker is under contract for another three years and have insisted all along that he is not for sale.
Kane, who is attracting interest from Manchester City, is currently on holiday following the Three Lions’ run to the Euro 2020 final and he is not due back for pre-season until August 2.
Nuno, who is yet to speak to the player since his appointment, revealed it had been suggested to him that Kane would not be sold.
He also confirmed that Bale will not be coming back, having spent last term on loan from Real Madrid.
Nuno said bluntly on the Wales international: “He will not be part of our squad.”
On Kane, he added: “All the conversations that we had, all of the squad that we have available – and we have a lot of good players – I can count on. I am counting on each and every one of them.
“I had a lot of meetings, we spoke about a lot of things. But one thing is for sure, what we speak about between us, stays between us.
