Harry Kane Will Continue To Focus On His Side’s Bid For Euro 2020 Glory Before Speaking To Tottenham Boss Nuno Espirito Santo

Harry Kane has described Nuno Espirito Santo as a “great manager” but will hold off from speaking to his new Tottenham boss until after England’s Euro 2020 campaign.

The 27-year-old’s club future has been a hot topic of debate after admitting in May he feels at a “crossroads” in his career following another trophyless campaign with Spurs.

Kane, who has spent the past 17 years with the north London club aside from four loan spells away, is a rumoured target for Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid. Keeping hold of the prolific striker will be a top priority for Nuno, who was last week confirmed as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor.

But Kane has yet to discuss his future with the ex-Wolves coach as he is eager to focus solely on helping England to Euro 2020 glory on home soil over the next week.

“Whenever a new manager comes in, I guess there’s a level of excitement around the club,” Kane, who has scored three goals in England’s run to the semi-finals, told talkSPORT. “Obviously, I’ve not been there and not had any contact with him. I’m away with England now and my full focus is on here. Hopefully, we’ve got a week left. He’s a great manager and did a great job at getting Wolves playing a really good way. Let’s get back and I’m sure we’ll be in contact after the tournament.”

Kane finished as the Premier League’s top scorer last season with 23 goals, making him the third player to win the award three times after Thierry Henry (four) and Alan Shearer. He also set up 14 goals to become only the second player in the Premier League era to top the charts for both goals and assists, the other being Andy Cole for Newcastle United in 1993-94.

Those 37 goals involvements were his most across a league campaign in his career, while his 14 assists doubled a previous high of seven in 2016-17. Kane is under contract for another three years and new sporting director Fabio Paratici stressed on Monday that Spurs have no intention of selling the “special” player.

Asked about the comments made by Paratici, Kane said: “Of course, as a player you want to be wanted, you want to feel like you’re loved, which I do. I haven’t had the chance to talk to any of these people yet. I’m sure we’ll get to know each other after the tournament, have a phone call or two once I get a week or two of holiday. To get praise from big people from football is great, it gives you confidence, it gives you motivation so of course it’s nice to hear.”

While Kane has yet to speak with Nuno or Paratici, he has been in dialogue with Mourinho since the Portuguese was sacked by Tottenham in April.

“He’s been texting me,” Kane said of the now-Roma boss. “It’s common knowledge we have a great relationship and got on really well. I really respect him as a manager and person. I wish him all the best at Roma. It is great to have one of the best managers in the world on your side. I will always respect him and hopefully be in contact with him for the rest of my career.”
