Football news - Will Kane stay put after all as Manchester giants turn their attentions elsewhere?
Harry Kane is one of the world´s best strikers and has asked for a move away from Spurs. Yet despite putting himself on the market, it looks as though the Golden Boot winner may be forced to stay in north London as Premier League suitors turn their attentions elsewhere. So as Kane prepares for England´s blockbuster match against Germany, is his domestic future already settled?
And while Manchester City and Manchester United turn their attentions and financial fire power to Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho respectively, it remains unclear how either could afford to pay Daniel Levy´s asking price for Kane.

The Spurs owner is known for his tough negotiating skills and will know that there is nobody of Kane´s ability that could replace him at the club, and that even £100m is unlikely to provide the same results when reinvested in multiple players.
Kane believes he and Levy have a gentleman´s agreement to let the striker leave, that will come with the considerable caveat that there is a team out there willing to pay the big money.
