Jose Mourinho reveals he’s not held talks with Harry Kane over his future as the Tottenham boss insists they have ‘nothing to talk about,’ with the club ‘refusing to sell him to a Premier League rival’ and wanting £175m
- Jose Mourinho has not held talks with Tottenham star Harry Kane over his future
- Speculation over the England captain’s future has intensified in recent weeks
- Man City need a new striker while Spurs’ Champions League hopes are slim
- However Spurs boss Mourinho insists he and Kane have ‘nothing to talk about’
Jose Mourinho says he has not discussed Harry Kane’s future with the Spurs talisman but insisted that his door is always open if the striker wants to talk.
Speculation has intensified over what might lie in store for Kane over the last few weeks after Spurs’ season threatened to implode following their embarrassing Europa League exit and Manchester City’s need for a new frontman in the wake of Sergio Aguero’s pending departure.
The England captain, who still has another three years left on his current contract, has been honest in the past about being content to say at the north London club providing he sees suitable progression, but was hardly cast-iron when speaking about his future on international duty last week.

Speculation has grown in recent weeks with Spurs looking unlikely to finish in the top four
He said the topic of his future at Spurs was a ‘hard question to answer right now’ and that ‘we’ll see where we go’ after this summer’s European Championship.
Mourinho revealed that Kane has not sought the advice of his manager, who vowed to help him ‘explode’ when he came to the club in 2019, regarding his future and it is not a topic the pair need to discuss.
‘He works so well every day. He is such a professional, committed with the team, performing well,’ Mourinho said.

But Mourinho says he has ‘nothing to talk about’ with Kane and said his door is always open
‘I’ve nothing to speak with him (about). Three years of his contract (remaining). I have nothing to speak with him.
‘Unless he wants to speak with me about it and until now he never approached me in relation to anything.’
It will be difficult for any club to get Kane out of Spurs this summer as the transfer window again looks set to be heavily affected by the coronavirus pandemic, while Spurs chief Daniel Levy is understood to be preparing to play hardball to keep his star man.
According to The Sun, Spurs have set a £175million asking price on Kane and are not prepared to sell him to a Premier League rival, making the striker’s options this summer few and far between.
Spurs, on the other hand, will only look set to do business if they can sell players and Mourinho is predicting another ‘strange’ window.

‘Of course I have an idea,’ Mourinho said when asked if he knows what he wants his squad to look like next season. ‘Of course we share our ideas. When I say we, I say myself and the structure including obviously the boss. So we know what we want.
‘But at the same time we can all expect a strange summer. I believe that it will be a bit strange in the sense of a different transfer window than in previous seasons.
‘But at the moment I don’t think it is about anyone fighting for his future. It is about everyone fighting for the points we need to finish the season the best that we can.’
