  • Harry Kane's future at Tottenham remains a hot subject in the English Premier League
  • A transfer insider makes a bold claim about Kane and Tottenham
  • Spurs manager Ryan Mason insists the England captain "loves" Tottenham

A journalist has come up with a bold claim about Harry Kane amid the English striker’s transfer link-ups.

During a recent episode of Talksport’s “GameDay” podcast, the outlet’s top journalist and famed transfer insider, Alex Crook, revealed what he had just learned from the talked-about Kane transfer rumors.

According to Crook, an unnamed English Premier League club executive has told him that the Tottenham talisman has already made his mind up about leaving the Spurs this summer.

“Well, I was told by somebody high ranking at one of the Premier League clubs that Harry Kane absolutely will leave Tottenham this summer. It’s not even in debate,”  Crook said.

Kane’s future at Tottenham quickly became a hot subject in the sport following the sacking of the club’s former manager Jose Mourinho.

Among the early suitors being linked to a move for the England captain is Premier League club Manchester United, per a report obtained by ESPN.

With Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer “desperate” to land “world-class striker,” Manchester United could fancy a move for Kane.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, meanwhile, would rather have a discussion with a non-Premier League club.

However, a bid of around £90 million (more than $125 million) for Kane may change his stance, the report said.

One of the major factors being viewed as the root of Kane’s possible Tottenham exit is the club’s lack of winning ability.

Amid all the rumors, new Spurs manager Ryan Mason has insisted that Kane “loves” Tottenham, and the striker’s decision will surely have nothing to do with how the UEFA Champions League plays out this year.

“I don't think so,” Mason told The Athletic. “Harry Kane loves this football club, in the past eight or nine years as one of the best strikers in the world. Everyone knows that we know that, and hopefully, Harry knows that.”

“Harry was fine in terms of his injury,” the coach added. “He was disappointed like all of us. Harry is a top professional, like the rest of the group are.”

Kane’s recent comment, on the other hand, also implied that a move away from Tottenham isn’t something he is considering at the moment, especially given his good relationship with Mason.

“Me and Ryan [Mason] are good mates, we’ve known each other a long time, on and off the field we are really close,” Kane revealed.
