‘Has Kane moved already?’: Son Heung-min hits back at reporters when asked about his Tottenham team-mate’s future as he insists ‘everything is not decided’ with England star’s future hanging in the balance

  • Harry Kane has been linked with a move away from Tottenham this summer
  • Manchester City are interested in signing the 27-year-old England captain
  • Kane and Son Heung-min broke a record in 2020-21 for most goal combinations
  • But Son insisted everything had not been decided in regards to Kane’s future

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min has hit back after suggestions club team-mate Harry Kane could leave the club in a mega-money deal this summer.

Spurs’ 27-year-old star striker has been linked with an exit away from north London this summer after becoming frustrated with the clubs’ failure to land silverware since coming into the first-team in the 2013-14 season.

He has gone on to score a remarkable 221 goals in that period without any trophies to show for it, but Premier League champions Manchester City are interested in signing the £150million-rated England captain following the departure of Sergio Aguero.

Kane and Son, 28, broke a 25-year record in March for most goal combinations in a single Premier League season in 2020-21, combining for a 14th goal of the campaign against Crystal Palace.

But the latter snapped back and insisted nothing has been decided when asked if the former could move on and break up their partnership. 

South Korea international Son – currently away on World Cup qualifying duty ahead of fixtures against Turkmenistan, Sri Lanka and Lebanon – told reporters: ‘Has Kane moved already?

‘Everything is not decided. Rather than worrying about his transfer, I am doing my best at Tottenham.

‘I want to focus on the national team and Tottenham. Maybe Kane is doing the same, he is busy preparing for the Euros.’

Sportsmail meanwhile understands Tottenham have held talks with Antonio Conte about their head coach vacancy, with the Italian emerging as a strong contender for the job.

Spurs are still without a manager despite sacking Jose Mourinho on April 19, having missed out on appointing their top two targets Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers.

It is understood initial contact between former Chelsea manager Conte — who walked out on Inter Milan two weeks ago after delivering the Serie A title — and Tottenham has taken place with both parties believed to be open to a deal.

But Son refused to discuss the potential appointment of the former Chelsea boss and claimed he would give his all for whoever ends up replacing Mourinho.

‘I can’t talk about that subject,’ Son added.

‘Conte doesn’t arrive yet, I have to be careful. It’s not confirmed, and I don’t know if Spurs is finding new coach or not. I will do my best in any situation in my position.’
