Well-known Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague has claimed on Skysports.com that Barcelona will not make a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Kane is one of the best strikers in the world and has been in stunning form for Tottenham over the past three seasons.

The England international has been the top scorer in the Premier League for the past two campaigns.

Given the quality of Kane and his reputation, one should not be surprises if top clubs are already looking at him.

Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Balague, though, does not believe that Barcelona will make a move for Kane next summer.

Balague has also claimed that for as long as manager Mauricio Pochettino remains at Spurs, Kane will not leave by the North London outfit.

When asked if Barcelona should make a move for Kane next summer, Balague wrote on Skysports.com: “Barcelona will not go for Kane. They cannot afford his cost for starters but yes, they will have to start thinking of another striker in a couple of years.

“It has been a slow start for Suarez who tried to recover from his last injury too early to be with Uruguay and now he is paying for it because he does not feel 100 per cent.

“On Kane: of course he is a world class striker. He is scoring regularly in one of the top teams in England (the most consistent) but next summer, or even this January, Real Madrid is hoping to sign a young up and coming striker to be alongside Benzema and Ronaldo.

“In any case, has anybody asked Kane? I honestly believe that for as long as Pochettino is at Spurs, Kane will stay put.”

Kane is good enough to play for Barcelona or Madrid, and many Spurs fans will be worried about the Spanish giants making moves for him next summer.

Balague’s comments, though, will be welcomed by Tottenham fans, as they suggest that Barcelona will not come calling next summer.
