Following on from Gladys’ news on our ongoing dealings with Manchester United for and about Luke Shaw and Danny Rose – it was during these discussions – the subject of Harry Kane was broached by the United boss, Ed Woodward.

Whilst the press appear to have reminders set in their phone calendars to publish ‘something/anything’ linking Kane with an exit from Tottenham, there has been considerable interest. It’s just that they all jumped the gun by guessing about Real Madrid’s and they weren’t the first.

As per the new and improved relationship between the two sides, Woodward was apparently seeking to pull the Bald one’s chain and made a couple of references to United’s impending ‘mega-bid for Harry come the January window.

Daniel revealed that no less than nine sides have made direct enquiries about the World’s Occasionally Greatest Footballer Everβ„’ and the list may be of interest; PSG, Athletico Madrid, Inter, two Chinese League teams, Internazionale and most recently Real Madrid.

All the overtures were met with a polite, ‘no thank you’ and a reiteration that Kane wishes to remain committed to Spurs, and Spurs to him for as along as perhaps 5 or even 6 seasons.

‘Spurs are not selling Kane!’ does sound wishfully thin, but this is a slightly usual case, Kane never saw Spurs as a springboard to somewhere else and he has invested more than most footballers have ever had to become a Spurs hero.

In short, for Kaneinho the idea of quitting THFC in the short term would feel like he was throwing an awful lot away. If you want to make an emotional investment in a footballer, but always swore you never would again, the boy Kane is an attractive exception to lure your love back in…

Of all the expressions of interest, PSG were the least subtle and more than intimated that they wouldn’t hesitate to trump the fees already spent on M’Bappe and Neymer. This may provide an indication to those of you who occasionally mumble about ‘bubbles bursting’. There is nothing happening in football to suggest that this will vaguely be the case anytime soon.

    I think you mean enquiries from 6 sides, H

    The problem with selling Kane would be who to replace him with? There is no single player that could fill the void on his own. We could go downthe route of buying 7 players again but I get the feeling levy has learnt his lesson there.

      Greizman? Possibly might be OK but there’s only one Kane.

    • Santa Hansen October 15, 2017 at 10:59 pm

      True no one can replace Kane, but a return of Modric and 2 other real madrid players (Bale?= should help, but if kane go, i think Eriksen perhaps follow him in the big deal.

    I have a bit of a man crush for Verts. He isn’t most people’s favourite player but he is consistent and versatile. I think he’ll be with us for a long time to come

  • AccringtonSpurs October 15, 2017 at 6:06 pm

    Verts will have to play LB again on Tuesday, surely? Davies will be a big miss.

    • gloster1861 October 15, 2017 at 6:41 pm

      Funny, a lot of people who comment on here consider Davies to be just a stopgap until the return of Danny ‘The Flash’ Rose.

      He will be a miss, but fortunately Verts is playing so well to cover. The nightmare is if Poch takes a punt on Trippier or Son at left wing back instead.

    If Kane wants out theres nothing we can do about it. Ronaldo from Utd to Madrid springs to mind, so lets not keep trying to convince ourselves that all is well with Kane. Its no use being a Brain Surgeon unless you are being paid for it.

    • StuSpur October 15, 2017 at 6:19 pm

      Stevie G springs to mind also

    • AccringtonSpurs October 15, 2017 at 6:19 pm

      Francesco Totti stayed with Roma his whole career.

    Im waiting on Tuesday to see how many minutes it takes for the Kane for sale talk starts

    • StuSpur October 15, 2017 at 5:43 pm

      I’m talking about selling Kane right now.

    • gloster1861 October 15, 2017 at 6:45 pm

      As soon as he scores.

  • Andreas October 15, 2017 at 5:32 pm

    We could have levy,poch,Kane and his agent at a press conference stating that Kane is not leaving, for whatever price,and the press would still make up storie s.

          Is Kane able???
          Oy oy oy!

    • StuSpur October 15, 2017 at 5:30 pm

      Kane’s tongue is too fat to learn Spanish

    • gloster1861 October 15, 2017 at 6:46 pm

      Come on, he can barely speak English.

  • StuSpur October 15, 2017 at 5:19 pm

    I was 12 when I last had a name on the back of a replica shirt – Klinnsman at Β£1.65 a letter or whatever it cost my parents. I swore never again.
    Are you saying it’s safe to venture back into being a messiah worshipper once again?

    • Harry Hotspur October 15, 2017 at 5:23 pm

      I’m saying it’s safer than it has been since Ledders πŸ‘Œ

      Much cheaper for your parents too.

      • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ October 15, 2017 at 5:26 pm

        Bale was the best deal in town

        • StuSpur October 15, 2017 at 5:29 pm

          How about ‘Ade’?

          • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ October 15, 2017 at 5:31 pm

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? October 15, 2017 at 5:15 pm

    Kane and Lukaku? No chance Utd will keep them two happy. Madrid or nobody.

    • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ October 15, 2017 at 5:27 pm

      • Sigue Sigue SPURTSnik πŸ’‹ October 15, 2017 at 5:51 pm
