City have been one of the many top European clubs to have been linked with Kane in recent weeks and the 27-year-old fueled speculation by admitting he could leave his boyhood club for a team capable of winning trophies.
The England captain is one of the best strikers in the world and has remained loyal to Spurs all his career. Europe’s top teams have targeted him for much of his time in London, but he always wanted to win trophies with Spurs.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, Romano revealed that the club are hoping to start negotiations with the striker in the next few weeks, but that Tottenham still think they will be able to keep hold of him.
“Manchester City are convinced that Harry Kane is the first target so they want to try for Harry Kane. Their intention is to open talks in the next weeks for Harry Kane,” he said.
“But at the moment, the position of Tottenham – and we have to respect Tottenham’s position – is still the same also in the last hours. Harry’s saying ‘I want to leave the club’. This is the position, obviously ‘private’ position.
“But from Tottenham, the answer is always the same. They want to keep the player, they want to keep Harry Kane, and they will try also to bring in a new manager with a new project, [a] new manager trying to convince Harry Kane with something new. Let’s see what happens, but Manchester City will push Tottenham’s position.”
Kane has made 336 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham, scoring 221 goals with 47 assists. The 27-year-old has yet to win a trophy with Spurs and has been public in his desire to pick up silverware, so a move could indeed be on the cards.
