  1. Oh well if Rooney urges the move and now phil nevill says so as well, then spurs had better sell kane to them, after all this is man utd and their needs must come first right!! Tell you what why doesnt lvg just point his finger at however many players he wants, and who, and the clubs that have the contracts with them just sell I mean they could buy any player they want just because they said so. I heard Aguerro next haha. How arrogant!!!

    • Pochettino keen on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
      Spurs targets Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo blah blah blah.
      Incontrovertible proof that Spurs close to sealing deals for Lionel Messi and cristiano Ronaldo – evidenced by the players, their managers and their chairmen stating categorically publicly, several times, that they aren’t for sale.

      I have got this right, haven’t I?

      Has anyone noticed that despite Real Madrid having watched Kane and Citeh being able to outspend United and in dire need of some homegrown players, every single media outlet is naming United and only United as Kane’s only conceivable destination. What’s that about? I mean, wouldn’t it be in Tottenham’s favour, it having been decided by the media* that Kane is just too damned good for Lil ol’ Spurs, to generate an auction and get as much money as possible for themselves? Apart from anything else, Levy literally despises United of the way they behaved over the forced purchase of Berbatov. So it stands to reason that he would rather see Kane at Citeh for more money than at United (that probably applies to the vast majority of Spurs fans, too).

      But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. If we do we might forget that United haven’t been able to bully Spurs out of Modric and Bale. There are now two teams who can outsspend United, and Spurs are in a much better position in every way than the forced Berbatov move.

      What is happening, of course, is that the media are desperate to reclaim their role as tapper-uppers in chief to United. They’ve had a couple of losses with Modric and Bale. So they are pulling out all the stops on this one. Let’s ignore the fact that Kane, a lifelong Spurs fan, has said he has no intention of leaving. It is just absolutely imperative that the media, in their absolute obsession with helping to make United the Harlem Globe Trotter galacticos of the North, to compete with thosse of the south (Real Madrid) have just decided that Kane MUST move to United.

      It is disgusting and a shameful indictment on English football, and particularly the English media, that this is seen as preferable to allowing big clubs like Spurs to build teams to compete.

      Not to worry: we are talking about Harry Kane, Spurs player, and not Harry Kane, Man United target.
