Harry Kane has revealed he is yet to speak to Tottenham’s new head coach Nuno Espirito Santo or managing director Fabio Paratici but says he “feels loved” at the club.

Kane has asked to leave Spurs this summer, with Manchester City ready to offer £100million for the England captain, plus the option of players in part-exchange.

But Paratici, who is now responsible for all football decisions at Spurs, has said the “goal” is to keep their talisman, and described Kane as “one of the best strikers in the world”.

Paratici was influential in the appointment of former Wolves coach Nuno, who began pre-season with the squad on Monday.

Kane is preparing for England’s Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark on Wednesday and says he will catch up with his new bosses after the tournament.

“Whenever a new manager comes in, I guess there’s a level of excitement around the club. Obviously, I’ve not been there and not had any contact with him,” Kane told talkSPORT.

“I’m away with England now and my full focus is on here. Hopefully, we’ve got a week left.

“He’s a great manager and did a great job at Wolves and got them playing a really good way.

“Let’s get back and I’m sure we’ll be in contact after the tournament.”

He added of Paratici’s comments: “Of course as a player you want to be wanted, you want to feel like you’re loved, which I do.

“I haven’t had the chance to talk to any of these people yet. I’m sure we’ll get to know each other after the tournament, have a phone call or two once I get a week or two of holiday.

“To get praise from big people from football is great, it gives you confidence, it gives you motivation so of course it’s nice to hear.”

Kane revealed he has spoken to Nuno’s predecessor Jose Mourinho, who will take charge of Serie A club Roma from next season.

“He’s great, he’s been texting me as well,” Kane said.

“It’s common knowledge we have a great relationship and got on really well.

“I really respect him as a manager and person. I wish him all the best at Roma. It is great to have one of the best managers in the world on your side.

“I will always respect him and hopefully be in contact with him for the rest of my career.”
