How Fabio Paratici ‘phenomenally’ made Harry Kane stay at Tottenham Hotspur despite Manchester City bid

According to the Telegraph (Subscription Required), it is claimed by trusted observers that Tottenham Hotspur director of football Fabio Paratici played a “phenomenal role” in keeping Harry Kane at the club last summer.

Kane’s future was hanging by a thread at Spurs after a poor season under Jose Mourinho and later, interim manager Ryan Mason. The England international has been one of the world’s best strikers in recent times but has failed to win any silverware with Spurs.

That is why Spurs fans were fretting when a £100million bid including add-ons was tabled for the now 29-year-old striker. The Cityzens had just lost Sergio Aguero to Barcelona and were looking for a new centre-forward.

However, Kane managed to stay at Spurs. As it turns out, it was the Italian chief who convinced Kane that City’s offer doesn’t reflect any desire on their side to sign him.

Things look bright for Spurs

The Cityzens eventually exited their pursuit of Kane and have instead signed Erling Haaland this summer. For Kane, things are looking on the up.

A lot of big things were promised once Paratici and Daniel Levy began the hunt for a new manager, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s appointment filled a majority of the Tottenham faithful with doubt from day one.

However, Antonio Conte’s appointment has filled the club with fresh hope once again. This was another signing that Partici played a big role in, and the former Juventus official could have left N17 by now had Conte not been appointed.

The former Inter Milan manager led us to a glorious fourth-place finish last season and we are off to the perfect start this campaign as well, with a 4-1 opening day win against Southampton.
