Report: Tottenham confident of keeping Kane despite interest

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

Both Chelsea and Manchester United are said to be keen on the in-form England man.

Tottenham Hotspur are confident of keeping Harry Kane at the club despite interest in his services, reports the Telegraph.

The striker had struggled at the beginning of the season, with the goals not coming as easily as they did last year.

He has picked up rapidly, though, and is now third in the top goal scorers list, with eight efforts to his name.

He is arguably the star man at White Hart Lane, with the goalscoring burden very much on his shoulders in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

His fine form has not been missed by a number of sides, though, with two Premier League teams in particular said to be keen on signing him.

They are Chelsea and Manchester United, according to the Telegraph report, with both sides in need of extra firepower.

Tottenham, though, are confident of keeping hold of their man, with chairman Daniel Levy potentially set to offer him another new deal to ward off any interest.

Given it is Chelsea and Manchester United who are interested, it is unlikely Spurs would sell regardless of the price that could be offered.

They would surely never sell their star man to their London rivals, especially given it is their place in the top four they are chasing this season.

They were also never likely to sell to United given the bad blood created between the two sides as a result of deals for Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov in the past.

The only way a deal may happen is if Kane were to force it through, another unlikely event given his clear love for the club and their form this season.
