Manchester City pursued Tottenham striker Harry Kane all summer, but the England captain ultimately stayed put without any football transfers. After almost missing Tottenham’s Europa Conference League debut in football news, Kane plans for Silverware with Spurs now.
Despite the collapse of the move to Manchester City that he so desired, Harry Kane insists his conscience is clear.
He reminds fans that his primary objective was to win more trophies, and now, he will do so with Tottenham.
Harry Kane expressed his desire to leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of last season. The England captain was close to a record-breaking move to the Premier League champions, Manchester City, during the transfer window.
But though City manager Pep Guardiola publicly shared his interest in the 28-year-old, this deal fell through. The probable reason behind this collapse in transfer talks was Spurs’ refusal to negotiate.
Kane thus returned to Tottenham after taking an extended break due to England’s Euro 2020 preparations.
He finally started the 2021-22 season with a 1-0 win over Wolves earlier this month.
The striker later issued a statement revealing that he would stay at his boyhood club, which he joined at the age of 11.
He then also went on to score twice as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side defeated Pacos de Ferreira 3-0. This is how they qualified for the inaugural Europa Conference League.
Football News – Kane Plans for Silverware with Spurs
Despite the transfer saga this summer, Harry Kane’s adamant that he did not let the media attention get to him.
And now, he is aiming to end a long wait for silverware.
“I knew what the situation was between me and the club, and that’s the way it’ll stay,” he said, according to The Guardian.
“I was quite calm with the situation, but when you’re in it and you know the truth, then your conscience is clear.
“Everyone has their opinions on it, but that’s part of the parcel of the profession we’re in. I think anyone involved in the football industry knows the ins and outs.
“A lot of people that know me will say I’m a professional athlete who’s dedicated my life to this game and that’s what I’ll continue to do.
“I’m fully focused with club and country and looking forward to a great year.
“The aim has always been to win silverware with Tottenham and it’s been that aim every year.”
