Harry Kane announced on Wednesday that he will be staying at Tottenham beyond this summer transfer window – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter have celebrated the news to claim it gives them a major boost in the Premier League title race.
England captain Kane has posted on social media today to reveal he will be staying at Spurs this summer.
This message from the 28-year-old comes after a move to Manchester City failed to materialise, despite massive speculation linking him with a switch to the Etihad Stadium.
Sky Sports explains that Man City’s £100million offer for the centre-forward in June failed and they couldn’t match Spurs’ price tag in the end after negotiations.
There is less than a week now for any clubs to conduct their transfer business, so all eyes are on Man City to see if they turn their attention on a new striker target.
Chelsea fans celebrate Harry Kane news
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media are delighted Man City haven’t signed Spurs’ talisman.
Kane, who’s scored 166 goals in 243 Premier League appearances, would have given Pep Guardiola’s side even more attacking firepower at the Etihad. However, it means they are yet to sign a replacement for Sergio Aguero.
There are some who feel Chelsea can really compete for the league crown this season and are thrilled defending champions Man City haven’t strengthened with Kane, albeit Jack Grealish has joined them this summer.
It’s worth noting the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United have to be considered firm title contenders as well.
