Thomas Tuchel Harry Kane

Thomas Tuchel revealed that he expected Harry Kane to join Manchester City during the summer transfer window. Harry Kane had announced his intentions to leave Spurs in the summer in a bid to win more trophies. Defending champions Manchester City bid £100m for the England captain but had their bid rejected by Spurs. Tuchel revealed that Kane was never a realistic target for the Champions League winners. Chelsea ended up signing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan for a record £97.5m deal.

“I thought that this would happen.” Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said about Harry Kane. “We never had a list with his name on it and I never went to (Chelsea director) Marina (Granovskaia) to tell her to buy him. But the club sorted out the situation. There are many people around players, their agents and advisors, and people in between and we had some information from these people. But it was never that close that we had to experience the rivalry (between Tottenham and Chelsea). We know about the rivalry but I had a feeling that it was never that far.”

“No, I was not scared, but if it would have happened, I would have been very interested in how maybe it would have changed Manchester City’s style of playing,” he added. “We are not afraid of anyone. We accept any team and Manchester City, Man United and Liverpool, they are the teams strong like no other in this league and they have strong squads.”
