LONDON: Harry Kane has confirmed he heard Manchester United supporters’ chants regarding a potential transfer move as he opened up on chairman Daniel Levy’s meeting with the Tottenham squad.
The England captain played a key role in helping Tottenham come from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with United on Thursday.
Several times during the game United fans chorused: “Harry Kane, we’ll see you in June.”
Erik ten Hag is desperate to bring in a new No9 this summer to spearhead his attack next term.
As well as Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, United have also long-been linked with a swoop for Spurs star Kane.
When asked about the songs from the away end last night, the star said: “I heard what they were saying but I’m just focussed on this team and trying to finish strongly.”
The comeback stopped the rot at Spurs after last weekend’s 6-1 thrashing at Newcastle – a game which led the squad to refund supporters who had the trip to the North East.
Following that debacle, which led to interim boss Cristian Stellini being replaced by Ryan Mason for the rest of the campaign, the club’s chairman met with the players.
Kane said: “The chairman asked for a meeting. Obviously I won’t go into what was said but I think it was important [for him] to understand where the players’ heads were at that moment.
“Obviously coming off the back of that result. And it wasn’t just that result. It had been building up since the international break when we conceded the two goals against Southampton.
“It was an honest conversation of where everyone is at and what we need to try to do to give us the best possible chance to finish the season with something.
“We’re still fighting for fourth place but if it’s not fourth we’ll try to finish fifth or sixth, as high up as we can.
“In this league, it’s so competitive, you can easily end up 8th or 9th if you’re not careful. That’s what it was – to give us the best chance. And I’m glad we reacted like that today.”
Next up is a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on Sunday.
