A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Kane has indicated he would be happy to stay at Tottenham for his whole career despite regular speculation linking the striker with clubs including Real Madrid.And Pochettino is confident of keeping hold of his star man, with Kane targeting Shearer’s all-time record of 260 Premier League goals.”We want him here, so there is no current price,” said Pochettino. “We can talk about many things but it is impossible to put a price on him.”That is for [chairman] Daniel Levy, not me. It is easy for me, for Daniel it would be different. “Nothing has changed, for me he was a superstar three years ago, a year ago, six months ago, one week ago. He has always been treated as a superstar.”We trusted him from day one here because we felt the potential and he deserves full credit for all he has achieved.”Alan knows better than me as he is English and he knows the English mentality. It is possible he could be this type of player, like [Francesco] Totti at Roma. It would make our fans happy as Harry is a great professional. So why not?”Looking back at 2017 like…Great to break the record for @premierleague goals in a calendar year but couldn’t do it without my teammates!   #COYS #THFC #PremierLeague — Harry Kane (@HKane) December 27, 2017 Pochettino was asked to compare Kane’s value with Liverpool’s deal for Virgil van Dijk, which Southampton confirmed is a world-record for a defender – the fee reported to be £75 million.”There is no price [for Kane],” Pochettino asserted. “We need to talk about reality and the reality is that Liverpool paid £75 million.”If you want a player and a club asks for a price and you pay, that is the reality of Van Dijk. We cannot create fantasy around a player.”For Kane, if an offer arrived, we will see. £100 million, £300 million, £500 million – football is football and it is about the offers and market. Clubs can do what they want, it is not my business.”Pochettino also denied speculation Spurs could move for Swansea defender Alfie Mawson.”I never listen [to rumours] and hear nothing about this player,” the Argentine added.last_img read more
