Darren Bent convinced Harry Kane will snub Manchester United for Tottenham stay

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent has insisted that the club can keep hold of Harry Kane this summer if they bring back Mauricio Pochettino as manager.

There is a feeling of staleness growing around Antonio Conte in the Premier League and we no longer see Gary Neville pestered for his accurate views on why the Italian was never the right fit for Manchester United.

With Conte’s future at Tottenham unclear, there’s been speculation about a possibly return for one of the club’s best manager in recent times.

According to The Times, Pochettino would be open to returning to Tottenham, and it’s easy to imagine that Kane would relish the opportunity to work with the Argentine again.

Kane has a decision to make this summer, with Tottenham set to complete another season without a trophy to show for it. Will he do an Alan Shearer and stay for the goal records, or will be jump for glory and join United (via The Athletic)?

“I feel like we’ve been here before with Harry Kane,” Bent told talkSPORT. “I don’t really see a burning ambition to leave.

“He did that whole Man City thing, maybe he conducted himself in a wrong way, and it’s not been spoken about since.

“If Pochettino goes back to Spurs I think Kane signs a new contract.”
