“I coped with it well” – Harry Kane comments on his summer transfer saga
By Eddie Razo -

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.

He’s working with scraps and is desperately dropping deep in a fruitless to attempt to create something because the majority of the team can’t string two passes together, cross a ball or retain the ball in the opponents half. Messi would look ropey playing with this lot.

Nice try to put the past tense in their Harry – you haven’t coped with it well…it’s still happening and you’re coping worse than ever

“Coped with it” – these players are a joke. He “coped” with maybe getting a new job or maybe not. Join the real world son.

Anyway, judging by his form I’d say he hasn’t coped well with it at all.

I saw a valuation of him of £90m so Levy priced him high (no Im not saying sell him for 90 but Im sure a deal could have been done and the money used to buy a player who wants to play for THFC).
Thank **** we have a football man in charge now and the Limited One can carry on buying up Real Estate.

Uefa use tranfermarkt. Also scouts from clubs all over the world use transfermarkt, valuations are largely accurate.. Kanes value is 106 million on there last updated in may.. He probably has dropped to 90mil in 6 months after his performances… Still I’m happy he didn’t go to City. They are too good already.

Kane’s not the brightest light in the box and this alleged statement is proof of that.

This must be Kane’s poorest run of form in a Spurs shirt I suspect and he just can’t get himself out of it.Unless Conte can shake him up,I think he will drop him,because his performances are detrimental to our future improvement.

He might make statements to the press to give them a headline,but he knows in his own mind he was screwed over by Levy and this is his way of getting back at him.It does nobody any good.
