Gladys recently suggested that Kane rumours are some way wide of the mark, and that the boy will be at Spurs for 5 or possibly 6 seasons to come.

Yes, there is interest, but why wouldn’t there be?

Mauricio Pochettino has dismissed suggestions Harry Kane could join Real Madrid by claiming the striker can be Tottenham’s Francesco Totti.

Pochettino also brushed off his own links to Spain, reiterating he could never manage Barcelona because of his past with Espanyol, while adding he would sign a 15-year contract at Spurs if he could.

Tottenham take on Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday, with two of their former heroes, Gareth Bale, who is out with a calf injury, and Luka Modric, now in the colours of the opposition.

But Pochettino believes Kane, who grew up in Walthamstow and came through the club’s academy, is more akin to Totti.

Totti played all 24 years of his professional career at Roma, after also starting out there as a teenager, before bidding an emotional farewell earlier this year.

β€œThe most important thing is that Harry is happy at Tottenham and in the future who knows where we’ll be?Β But he enjoys Tottenham, he comes from the academy, he identifies with the club. Only football knows the future.

β€œFor me, he’s a player who likes scoring, he loves the Tottenham shirt and was excited when he saw Totti’s farewell in Rome and that created extra motivation.Β He was so emotional when he saw the last game of Totti for Roma, only playing at one club, maybe Harry Kane can have the same career as Totti.”

Pochettino’s own roots lie with Espanyol, where he spent six years and played over 200 times as a player, before returning to the club for his first stint in management.

His time at Espanyol has prompted him to rule out managing Catalan rivals Barcelona in the future while Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has said he wants Pochettino to stay for 15 years.

β€œIt’s up to him,” Pochettino said. β€œAlways it is up to the owner or chairman to decide if you’re a manager for a short time or long period.

      If Pooch stays for the next 15 years will will have won loads of premiership titles and the Champions League a few times, he is the best manager on the planet 🌍

          The pain has been astonishing. I began to wonder if I have a growth or something.

          I have a low tolerance of pain, but still, this has been breath taking.

      • paul October 17, 2017 at 6:35 pm

        I’ve had pretty crippling similar issues for the last two years that have spread from right elbow up bicep, into shoulder, clavicle, neck and jaw. Got to the point where i couldn’t get more than an hours sleep and i was going crazy. Tried everything but painkillers only masked it at best. Without sounding glib or new agey i ended up discovering after months of trial and error that there are release points in various places along that route that if i gently (and in some cases like behind my jawbone) not so gently manipulate (rub/massage/dig into with finger tips) i get a huge amount of relief and can function again. Over time i’ve worked out a pattern of them and every night before bed have to do this shit for 30-45 minutes but i’ve learnt never to skip it because if i don’t the pain will wake me up after a couple of hours and i have to get up and do it anyway. So that’s what works to keep me functioning, that and a nurofen express every other night just to help dampen down any inflammation. I don’t know if there’s anything in that for you, i haven’t read back far enough to know where the problem is but thought mabe my experience might hold something useful for you.

    Kane lived and grew up in Goldsborough Crescent, Chingford E4. He attended Chingford Foundation School on Nevin Drive.
    Same sort of thing for Beckham who lived on Chingford Mount and attended the same school.

      Deep Spurs country that, just a couple of miles from the Lane. Would be superb if he stayed as long as Totti did with Roma.

        Special that someone could keep the required level at the late career stages….had a teacher back in the day, was still playing front row in local rugby league 2nd division at 45 (think rough country no violent act being too hard to be sin binned)……I am that age in about 6 weeks, never in a million years
