Gary Neville believes that Harry Kane looked despondent during Tottenham’s derby loss against Chelsea in the Premier League. Kane wanted to leave Tottenham at the end of last season but he failed to secure a move to Manchester City. It was reported that they turned down a 100m bid for the England captain which was way below their valuation. The striker has failed to score this season so far and has looked a shadow of himself from previous seasons.
“When Manchester City drew with Southampton, the talk resurfaced about them not signing Harry Kane. He’s playing for Tottenham and he loves this club, but just being on the left on Sunday, I was thinking in the first half, ‘if this doesn’t work, it won’t go down too well.” Gary Neville said about Harry Kane. “As soon as Chelsea went 2-0 up, I was watching and thinking he wouldn’t be hanging out on the left for much longer. Nuno switched it straight away but when he did go central, nothing happened. He didn’t get more involved in the game.”
“They are difficult circumstances in the sense that he did want to further his career and win trophies,” he added. “Kane chose this summer to publicize the fact that he wanted to leave and to go and win trophies but Daniel Levy and Tottenham decided to keep him which is their right as he’s under contract. But it’s never easy when a player wants to leave your club and everyone in the ground and in the dressing room knows that he wants to leave.”
