Tottenham striker Harry Kane has subtly rejected the transfer rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United by saying that he is extremely happy at White Hart Lane. Spurs forward Kane has emerged as one of the best names in the business. Even though he recently signed a new long-term contract with the North London outfit, he continues to be linked with other top clubs. Manchester United have had a long-standing interest in the player, and this does not appear to have changed even after the arrival of Jose Mourinho. The 23-year-old has managed to score 75 goals in his last three campaigns with the club.
Even though there has been a lot of interest from top clubs like United, Kane says that his focus will not be lured away from making it big at Tottenham. Kane is on his way to becoming a legend that North London after having come through the ranks at the club. Even though Dele Alli may be getting many elements of press, the England striker is not far away. He was a major factor in the club finishing third in the league table last season, as he ended up as the top scorer in the league. Kane is well on his way to defend the Golden Boot award going by the recent form.
Kane missed a big chunk of the campaign a few months ago, but he has become a regular in the first team once again. In the last seven matches, Kane has come with seven goals and two assists.
“The most important thing for me is that the club is moving forward. Kane told talkSPORT (h/t Metro)
“We have got a young team, a young, fantastic manager, we have got a new stadium coming in two years and we have got a new training ground.
“Some people are motivated by money – I’m not one of them. I am motivated by trying to win trophies.”
As Tottenham achieve more and more success without spending a lot of money, it would be inevitable that a number of their stars would be linked with moves elsewhere. One of the main factors that prevents Spurs from retaining such names is the current wages structure implemented by chairman Daniel Levy. Apart from a lot of constraints when it comes to spending money in the transfer market, Spurs also limit the manager’s hands when it comes to handing out fat contracts to the players. Despite being one of the best strikers in the Premier league, Kane recently signed a new long-term contract which gives him around £100,000 per week as wages.
This was in sharp contrast to the likes of Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney, who earn more than £200,000 per week. Ultimately, it will be a major decision on the part of the club to offer bigger contracts to the players. If not, the club would ultimately find themselves under a lot of pressure from other top clubs.
