Shaka Hislop told ESPN that Tottenham striker, Harry Kane, is ‘gone’ even if Sergio Ramos joined the club.
The former goalkeeper was asked whether the seemingly wantaway Englishman would stay at Tottenham if the Real Madrid legend moved to North London this summer.
Ramos is a free agent when his contract at Madrid expires at the end of this month.
The Premier League is being considered as a potential destination for the 35-year-old and Manchester City’s name has cropped up, as reported by ESPN.
Whilst it’s highly unlikely that Ramos will don the colors of Spurs, ex-Newcastle man, Hislop, was asked whether the arrival of a player of his standing would change Kane’s current situation.
“No (it wouldn’t make him stay), I think Harry Kane is gone,” said Hislop. “His bags are packed and he’s just waiting for the call.”
To make it clear, Kane is still a Tottenham player, but his interview with Gary Neville, where he spoke about his future, wouldn’t have filled his supporters with much joy.
And it wouldn’t have helped with rumors about a £100 million bid from the current champions, Manchester City, coming in for the Englishman’s services.
Added with that, it doesn’t help Tottenham’s situation in trying to keep their star men when they don’t even have a manager in the dugout.
Daniel Levy hasn’t exactly done a great job in trying to set the platform whereby Kane is persuaded to stay because it’s been the complete opposite, in truth.
