​New Tottenham Hotspur manager José Mourinho has warned chairman Daniel Levy that he must not allow striker Harry Kane to leave the club in the near future.


Kane is widely heralded as one of the finest strikers around, but he constantly finds himself linked with moves away from Spurs as a result of their struggles to compete for silverware.

As noted by the ​Daily Mail, one of Mourinho's first actions at the club was to seek out ​Kane for a one-to-one meeting, in which he made no secret of his desire to build a squad around the England striker.


He then went to tell Levy to rebuff any interest in Kane, in the hope that he will be able to convince Kane that staying at the club is the best thing for his career.


Mourinho also held a team meeting with everyone in the squad, in which he expressed the importance of moving on from their miserable run of form. He guaranteed that ​Spurs will be successful if they remain united and confident.

The manager will be encouraged to win over his current squad, as The Guardian note that Spurs do not have any money to strengthen in the January transfer window. However, Levy is still prepared to pursue a loan move for Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale if Mourinho decides he wants the Welshman.


​The Mirror add that Mourinho is ready to give every player the chance to prove themselves, meeting there could be new contracts for the trio of ​Christian Eriksen​Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.


All three players can begin to negotiate free transfers away from Spurs in January, but they are now said to be intrigued by the prospect of working with a serial winner like Mourinho, meaning they could still end up signing new deals.

There could be lengthy extensions for both Eriksen and Alderweireld, but 90min has learned that 32-year-old Vertonghen will only be offered a 12-month contract as a result of his age.


Mourinho feels that he can get the best out of the trio, and a better relationship with the new boss could convince all three that Spurs are the right club for them.
