Harry Kane will leave Tottenham even if Mauricio Pochettino returns as manager, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said the 27-year-old “has got his head set on a move away” and no managerial appointment could change that.
The Athletic‘s Jack Pitt-Brooke reported this morning that Spurs are in talks with Mauricio Pochettino over a spectacular return to the club he left 18 months ago.
The Paris Saint-Germain boss is said to be interested in a potential return, with players excited by the prospect of working with their former manager once again.
Pochettino has one year remaining on his contract in the French capital, where he narrowly missed out on the Ligue 1 title this year.
When asked by Football Insider if Pochettino was capable of persuading Kane to stay at the club this summer, Campbell said: “No, no, no”.
He added: “Any new potential manager knows that they will be taking over a Tottenham side that will likely be without Kane. The manager will have to get somebody in to replace Kane. This is happening.
“I am sure they will sit down with Kane and say, ‘Look, I would’ve loved to have kept you.’
“That is the only thing that can be said because let’s be honest, Harry Kane has got his head set on a move away this summer.”
As revealed by Football Insider, Kane is “hell bent” on quitting Spurs this summer after another trophyless season.
Manchester United and Chelsea are both in hot pursuit of the England captain who is valued by the London club at £150million.
