Spurs transfer chief Fabio Paratici has insisted Harry Kane “loves Tottenham” and is part of the club’s rebuilding plans, despite the England captain’s attempts to leave North London last summer.
Kane, 28, has been the subject of great interest from Manchester City, with the Premier League champions linked with a £150m transfer for the three-time Golden Boot winner.
However, Tottenham chief Daniel Levy firmly parried all approaches to City and Kane relented in his bid to secure an exit from his youth club.

And now Paratici – who was recruited by Juventus this summer to oversee football activities at the club – has revealed that Kane “loves Tottenham” and remains an integral part of the North Londoners’ plans.
“Harry Kane loves Tottenham,” he told The Sun. “Last summer we decided to keep Harry to start the refurbishment and we are happy with our choice.
“There’s no need for another conversation with Harry. He knows how to share the feeling of belonging to the Spurs.’
However, Spurs transfer chief Paratici says Kane remains crucial to the club’s plans

The 28-year-old has endured a slow start to the 2021-2022 season, failing to find the net in six Premier League games under Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Portuguese hopes his star player can quickly find his shooting boots, as pressure mounted on the former Wolves coach after a poor September saw Spurs slide down the rankings.
Meanwhile, Paratici began pursuing Tottenham’s pursuit of Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, marking the Serb as a potential replacement for Kane, bringing his City transfer to a close.

Paratici added that a move for coveted striker Dusan Vlahovic is not in the club’s plans
“Dusan Vlahovic is appreciated by many clubs, it is normal – he is not in our plans for the time being,” added Paratici.
“I’m not going to talk about Dusan Vlahovic as he is under contract with Fiorentina… and also because we have Harry Kane who is the best striker in the world.”
The Spurs are back in action against Newcastle United after the international break, with an upbeat atmosphere in St James’ Park following the £305m acquisition of The Magpies by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund.
