Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho talked about Harry Kane. Mourinho has addressed speculation over Kane’s future, and said that he’s not discussed it with him.
Mourinho expects the forthcoming off-season transfer window to be “strange” due to the pandemic’s financial effect on football clubs.
He expects this off-season to be unusual, though he refused to comment on Spurs’ transfer goals.
“We know what we want, but at the same time we can all expect a strange summer,” Mourinho said ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League match with Newcastle on Sunday according to The Guardian.
“I believe that it is going to be a bit strange in the sense of a different transfer window than in previous seasons, but in this moment I don’t think it is about anyone fighting for his future,” he continued.
“I think it is about everyone fighting for the points we need to finish the season the best that we can.”
Amidst this, Mourinho had addressed any speculation about Kane’s future, and played it down.
Kane is a frequent target of transfer rumours, with Manchester City the most recent club to be linked with the England striker.
But his coach maintains that they have not discussed his future.
“No. He works so well every day,” Mourinho said when asked if the pair had spoken about his future. “He is such a professional, committed with the team, performing well.”
“I’ve nothing to speak with him,” he added. “Three years of his contract [left]. I have nothing to speak with him about. Unless he wants to speak with me about it and until now he never approached me in relation to anything.”
Mourinho has also said that he is satisfied with Hugo Lloris.
