All summer, there was speculation regarding the future of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane. The 28-year-old was linked to Manchester City, and every week, it seemed as though there was a twist in the saga.
Nonetheless, The Athletic relayed the remarks made by Kane when asked about his handling of the rumors.
“Obviously, there was a lot of talk and speculation over the summer,” Kane said. “That is the first time it has really happened to me. But that is part and parcel of being a big player, and I think I coped with it well.”
Manchester City failed to meet the asking price that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy placed on Kane. Once their Premier League rival spent £100-million on Jack Grealish, it seemed unlikely they’d spend anywhere close to £150-million to obtain Kane.
The England international has struggled in this early part of the Premier League season. Kane has one goal in ten matches as Tottenham would sack their manager Nuno Espírito Santo.
The transfer rumors continue to follow Kane as various pundits throughout the season have pointed out how unhappy the striker appears in matches.
Antonio Conte is now in charge and has a reputation of winning trophies, so if this hiring can’t get Kane going, then eventually Tottenham may have to look at themselves and wonder is it worth keeping a player that doesn’t want to be there.
