Harry Kane is ‘our player’ – New Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo

Must Read

New Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo says Harry Kane is “our player” and will speak to the England captain when he returns to the club.

Striker Kane, 27, has a gentleman’s agreement that would allow him to leave the north London club this summer.

Kane is currently on holiday after leading England to the Euro 2020 final, where they were beaten by Italy.

“Now is the moment for him to recover his energy and rest. Then we can speak,” said Portuguese boss Nuno.

Speaking at his first news conference since being appointed as manager, Nuno said: “Harry is our player. Period. No need to talk about anything else, I am looking forward to him joining the group.

“Harry is one of the best players in the world. That is all I need to say.”

Last month, Premier League champions Manchester City took the first steps to try and sign Kane from Spurs this summer.

BBC Sport understands there were talks leading towards City making a formal offer, but sources from both clubs distanced themselves from suggestions an official £100m bid has been lodged.

Reports in May suggested that Kane had reiterated his desire to leave the club.

Nuno added: “What I wish is for Harry to recover well, to have a good rest and when he arrives he will feel that every one of us needs to commit themselves to becoming better.

“We are very ambitious people. We want to do it well. We count on Harry on that.”
