Tottenham feared departure of Man Utd transfer target Harry Kane if they kept Jose Mourinho

Posted by

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy reportedly felt he would risk losing some big names if he didn’t sack Jose Mourinho as manager this week.

The Portuguese tactician was shown the door on Monday after a disappointing run of form, though the timing of the news was a bit of a surprise as Spurs take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final this weekend.

Still, it seems Levy was fearful of the future of star players, including Harry Kane, if he kept Mourinho in charge for much longer, according to Eurosport.

Kane has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City by The Athletic and it would make sense if the England international were considering his future at this point.

Tottenham haven’t won a trophy since all the way back in 2008, meaning Kane is yet to get his hands on any silverware in his career so far.

The 27-year-old could therefore do well to leave the north London side for someone like Man Utd, who are making great progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils look close to being a potential title-winning side, but could just do with an out-and-out goal-scorer like Kane to complete their current squad.

It remains to be seen if Spurs have now boosted their chances of keeping Kane by dismissing Mourinho, though it remains to be seen who they bring in to replace the Special One.
