A current club colleague of the English captain says that no one in north London would have a problem with the attacker if he stayed
Harry Kane is still seeing a big money move to Manchester City, but Tottenham team-mate Davinson Sanchez has told the English international that everyone is ‘on his side’ in north London.

What was said?
Colombian defender Sanchez told reporters of the endless rounds of rumors surrounding Kane and his future: “Harry is the best number 9 in the world. There is no doubt. When someone else says, he just does not understand football.
“I’m his teammate, so I can not deepen the situation, because it’s a situation that is being discussed between Harry and the people above. We’re just here to support him and if anything happens, we’ll always be on. his side. “
He added: ‘If he has the chance to be on the field with us, he will of course help us, there is no doubt. Everyone here knows how professional he is and no one can doubt how good he is he is as a player, how good he is as a person and his professionalism, as I say.
“We are just on his side, and if we decide, we take him because he gives everything to the club. In my position he helps me a lot as a player and as captain he was very humble and is a very good person.
“I can go on, I will never stop talking about how good he is as a person.”
Meanwhile, the city’s former full-back, Pablo Zabaleta, has expressed his conviction that now is the best time for Kane to spread his wings to fulfill his trades of silverware, and tells PA News Agency: “We’ll see if the money is there, and we’ll splash the money for Harry Kane, but it’s going to be nice to see him play for City.
‘He’s at the right time to go to another club and have a different experience. We all know the quality of Kane if you want to win trophies and (he) knows he’s done enough for Spurs and wants to move, maybe City are one of the clubs. ”
What’s the latest on Kane?
Spurs are under no pressure to separate from a valued asset as it commits itself to a contract until the summer of 2024.
Kane has often said that at this stage of his career he wants to start landing large pieces of silverware, after tangible success has eluded him so far, he does not force himself through the exits.
With that in mind, new Spurs boss Nuno believes there is a chance a man with 221 goals could be kept for the club in his current environment.
The Portuguese told reporters after a 1-0 win over City for his team: ‘Harry is [training] with us he worked Sunday morning and he gets ready to help the team.
‘We do not expect [something to happen before the transfer deadline but] We need to be ready to act if necessary, because until the 31st, anything can happen in football. “
Pep Guardiola was also alerted to his search for Kane after the game, he returned questions about a suspected lack of firepower in his team winning the title, but anything could still happen with a recruiting window open for business.
