Kane may pull Tottenham exit U-turn as talks scheduled - pundit

Nuno Espirito Santo may be able to convince Harry Kane to stay at Tottenham with the promise of big-name signings, according to Alan Hutton.

The former Spurs defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the Lilywhites’ recruitment plans could sensationally force a U-turn from the superstar.

The England striker, speaking to talkSPORT (July 5th), revealed he is yet to speak to the new Spurs boss or director of football Fabio Paratici.

However, he admitted talks were scheduled for after the end of the European Championships on Sunday.

As revealed by Football Insider in April, Kane is “hell bent” on leaving Spurs this summer.

However, he still has three years left on his contract and the latest from a Spurs source on chairman Daniel Levy’s stance is that he could now let him go for players-plus-£100m cash.

Hutton suggested Nuno would do everything he could to change Kane’s mind ahead of the new season.

“Daniel Levy doesn’t want to sell him cheap,” Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge.

“Obviously the manager is going to sit him down and say you’re my main man, a future captain if you stay.

“He’s going to tell him all he wants to hear, long story short. It’s whether they can actually come through and make that happen.

“If you’re Harry Kane, you’re sitting down with the manager saying who are we bringing in? That would be my first question.

“You’re telling me we’re going to go for top four, going to come up against the big teams. What players are we bringing in to make that happen?

“There are some big questions that I think both sides will want to know the answer to.
