Ivan Perisic set for a return to Inter Milan from Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur winger Ivan Perisic could be returning to Inter Milan this summer. The Croatian International signed for the North London club last summer, but his stint with Spurs could already be over.

According to the reports from FCInterNews, the newly-crowned Copa Italia winners had given Perisic a contract extension last summer. However, the veteran refused the offer and decided to follow his former Inter manager, Antonio Conte, to the Premier League.

During his Premier League tenure, things have not gone how he would have expected. Tottenham Hotspur haven’t qualified for Europe this season and sacked Conte in March after his outburst in the post-match press conference against Southampton.

Despite his horrible campaign with Tottenham Hotspur, Perisic did enjoy a wonderful World Cup with Croatia again, as they reached the semi-finals. The 2018 runner-ups lost to eventual champions Argentina in the last four.

Now, Perisic wants to return to Serie A. He could be joining Romelu Lukaku to make a return to Serie A after just one season in the Premier League. The 34-year-old has enjoyed seven glorious years at the San Siro. During that period, he also went on loan to Bayern Munich, where he won the treble. 

If Perisic wants first-team football at Inter Milan, he should hope Robin Gosens gets sold this summer. The German has made the left-wing position his own at the club. However, he has been linked with a move to the Bundesliga this summer. 

There could be a condition that Perisic’s return to his former club could only be possible if he accepts a salary reduction. The 2020 Champions League winner currently earns €6 million net per season at Tottenham Hotspur. However, this evaluation won’t align with Inter’s wage structure.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has one condition to sell Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy holds the key to Harry Kane’s potential transfer to Manchester United, with the striker needing to convince Levy to allow him to leave the club this summer, reported by mirror. Despite Kane’s desire for a move, Levy is firm in his refusal to sell the star player to a Premier League rival.

Manchester United’s return to the Champions League next season has made them eager to secure Kane as their top target for the striker position. With manager Erik ten Hag seeking reinforcements up front and the potential departures of Antony Martial and Wout Weghorst, Kane has emerged as their primary focus.

Kane’s contract with Tottenham expires next year, making this transfer window the last opportunity for the England captain to negotiate with other clubs. However, Levy’s determination to avoid selling Kane to a direct Premier League competitor poses a significant obstacle to any potential transfer. Tottenham values their star player at £100 million.

The Evening Standard reports that Kane will only be sold if a suitable offer comes from a foreign club, as Levy refuses to allow him to join another Premier League team. This stance could prove costly for Spurs, as they risk losing their greatest goalscorer and prized asset on a free transfer next summer if he doesn’t sign a new contract.

After an impressive season scoring 30 goals, Kane has amassed 213 Premier League goals in his career, just 47 shy of Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260 goals. If he continues at his current rate, Kane could become the league’s all-time top scorer within the next two seasons.

Levy is known for his tough negotiating style, with former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson describing dealings with the Spurs chairman as “more painful than my hip replacement.” Levy emphasizes that the decision to sell a player depends on various factors, including the player’s character and the team’s overall cohesion.

The standoff between Kane and Levy adds an intriguing twist to the transfer saga, leaving Kane’s future uncertain as he seeks a move away from Tottenham this summer.

Kane consigns Leeds to relegation as Spurs win at Elland Road

A Harry Kane brace and goals from Pedro Porro and Lucas Moura condemned Leeds to the Championship as Tottenham ran out 4-1 winners at Elland Road on a dramatic final day of the Premier League season.

Sam Allardyce’s side came into the match needing to win and rely on results elsewhere to avoid the dreaded drop after a dismal season, and could hardly have made a worse start.

Porro darted inside from the right wing to pick up the loose ball and feed Son Heung-Min, who laid it off for Kane to break the deadlock with his first touch of the game and with just 91 seconds on the clock.

Credit to the hosts, who responded well and should have been level before the 10-minute mark. First, Robin Koch had a free header from eight yards out that he put wide, before moments later, Pascal Struijk sliced a gilt-edged chance over the bar.

The anguish was written all over the face of Allardyce in the dugout and the Leeds faithful, who created an incredible atmosphere prior to kick-off.

Those cheers made way for boos at half-time as the team’s impending relegation neared, especially with Leicester winning at the break.

There was even less to cheer about in the second period. Amazingly, the hosts were once again caught napping less than two minutes into the half as Kane turned provider, turning Liam Cooper and finding Porro, who found the corner exquisitely from tight angle.

With Leicester doubling their advantage and Everton opening the scoring at Goodison, Leeds’ fate was as good as sealed, but they did give themselves a lifeline in the 67th minute when Jack Harrison found the net with a low bullet.

However, Kane put the final nail in the Leeds coffin two minutes later, picking out the corner with ease at the end of a Tottenham break for his 30th Premier League goal of the season and a fitting end to his time at Spurs, if it should prove to be his last appearance.

On his final appearance, Lucas Moura scored a stunner to cap a fine win for Spurs.

More to follow.

Brisantes Duell für Tottenham: Diese Entscheidungen fallen in der Premier League

Während die Bundesliga ein Saisonfinale erwartet, das sich gewaschen hat, gibt es in England kaum noch Entscheidungen, die noch nicht gefallen sind – ein paar Klubs müssen noch zittern. Besonders brisant wird es für Tottenham.

Reicht's doch noch für Europa? Harry Kane und die Spurs könnten noch die Conference League erreichen.

Reicht’s doch noch für Europa? Harry Kane und die Spurs könnten noch die Conference League erreichen.

IMAGO/Sportimage

Manchester City ist Meister, das ist ebenso klar, wie die Tatsache, dass der FC Arsenal, Manchester United sowie Newcastle United in der Champions League dabei sein werden. Weil ManUnited den League Cup gewonnen und das FA-Cup-Finale gegen ManCity spielen wird, ist auch klar, dass die Plätze fünf und sechs in die Europa League führen und Platz sieben in die Conference League.

Im Fall der Europa League steht fest, dass dort der von Jürgen Klopp trainierte FC Liverpool gemeinsam mit Brighton & Hove Albion antreten wird.

Keine Klarheit bei der Conference League

Keine Klarheit herrsch derweil im Falle der Europa Conference League. Aktuell belegt Aston Villa Platz sieben und hat einen Punkt Vorsprung auf Tottenham Hotspur und zwei auf Brentford. Die Spurs (in Leeds) und Brentford (gegen ManCity) müssen daher auf einen Ausrutscher der Villans zu Hause gegen Brighton hoffen, um überhaupt einen Chance auf die internationalen Fleischtöpfe zu haben.

Große Brisanz birgt das Gastspiel der Spurs in Leeds, denn da geht es nicht nur für die Londoner um was, sondern auch für Leeds, das als Tabellenvorletzter nach dem letzten Strohhalm im Abstiegskampf greift und zwingend einen Sieg benötigt, soll die Klasse gehalten werden.

Everton hat die besten Karten im Keller

Leeds benötigt dabei aber auch Schützenhilfe, denn das punktgleiche, aber mit einer um neun Tore besseren Tordifferenz ausgestattete Leicester City darf parallel im Heimspiel gegen West Ham United weder gewinnen noch realistisch betrachtet remis spielen.

Im Falle eines Remis wäre Leeds’ Abstieg besiegelt, Leicester wiederum hätte bei einem Punkt gegen die Hammers sogar noch die Chance auf das rettenden Ufer, denn die Foxes haben auch im Vergleich zum FC Everton die bessere Tordifferenz.

Dennoch sind es die Toffees, die die besten Karten auf der Hand beim Saisonfinale haben. Everton hat zwei Punkte Vorsprung auf seine Verfolger und kann die eigene Rettung mit einem Dreier zu Hause gegen Bournemouth perfekt machen.

Southampton wiederum weiß bereits, dass man 2023/24 in der 2. Liga spielen wird.

Für West Ham geht es um die berühmtberüchtigte Goldene Ananas, deren wichtiges Spiel steht erst am 7. Juni an, wenn man im Finale der Europa Conference League gegen AC Florenz den Europapokal gewinnen und damit zugleich das Ticket für die Europa League lösen kann.

Im Keller hat Everton die besten Karten auf der Hand. Die Toffees haben zwei Punkte Vorsprung auf ihre Verfolger und können die eigene Rettung mit einem Dreier zu Hause gegen Bournemouth perfekt machen.

Jamie Redknapp urges Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp has urged England captain Harry Kane to leave the North London club this summer. The striker has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the upcoming transfer window.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Redknapp said, “It’s the facts. It feels Spurs are a shambles, if you are Harry Kane with one year to go, this is the time to leave. He has to push now.”

“(Manchester) United might get someone, he missed Man City a few years ago, right now, he needs to push with one year on contract to go somewhere.”

Kane has been the only shining light of a disappointing season for Tottenham Hotspur. The 29-year-old has scored 28 Premier League goals, second only to Erling Haaland in the charts. The Tottenham captain has one year left on his deal with his boyhood club.

After coming through the ranks during the Mauricio Pochettino era, Kane has scored 278 goals in 434 games for Spurs. He has netted 211 goals in the Premier League, which is second only to Alan Shearer in the Premier League all-time goalscoring charts. He has also overtaken Wayne Rooney as the greatest goalscorer for England National Team. 

Considering Manchester United’s lack of quality upfront, they want Kane at Old Trafford. Manchester City almost secured the signing of the England captain two seasons ago, but Kane remained at North London. 

It would boost their transfer dealings now that Manchester United has secured their Champions League qualification. Moreover, it could prove fundamental in deciding Kane’s fate this summer, as Tottenham Hotspur may not be in Europe next season.

Mourinho “liebt” jeden seiner Ex-Klubs – außer einen

José Mourinho hat sich über seine bisherigen Arbeitgeber geäußert. Für sechs davon habe er “tiefe Gefühle”, für einen nicht.

Stichelei gegen Tottenham: José Mourinho am Donnerstag auf einer Pressekonferenz.

Stichelei gegen Tottenham: José Mourinho am Donnerstag auf einer Pressekonferenz.

IMAGO/ZUMA Press

“Ich hoffe, die Tottenham-Fans verstehen mich nicht falsch”, sagte José Mourinho, doch diese Hoffnung dürfte sich kaum erfüllt haben. Auf einer Pressekonferenz äußerte sich der Trainer von Europa-League-Finalist AS Rom am Donnerstag sehr wohlwollend über alle seine Ex-Klubs – mit Ausnahme der Spurs.

Tottenham sei “der einzige Klub meiner Karriere, für den ich keine tiefen Gefühle mehr” habe und “keine Verbindung” spüre, sagte Mourinho, der mit dem FC Porto, dem FC Chelsea, Inter Mailand, Real Madrid und Manchester United arbeitete. “Vielleicht sagen die Leute jetzt, du kannst nicht jeden Klub lieben. Doch, ich liebe jeden!” Und auch mit der Roma werde er “für immer verbunden sein, wie mit allen meinen früheren Klubs – außer dem von Herrn Levy”.

Die Spurs-Spitze um Klubboss Daniel Levy hatte sich im April 2021 nach mehreren Ausrutschern in der Liga und dem Europa-League-Achtelfinalaus bei Dinamo Zagreb (0:3 n.V.) von Mourinho getrennt – wenige Tage vor dem Ligapokalfinale gegen Manchester City, das Tottenham unter Interimstrainer Ryan Mason mit 0:1 verlor. Mason betreut die Spurs auch aktuell wieder interimistisch, ehe im Sommer ein neuer Chefcoach kommen soll. 

“Herr Levy ließ mich einen Titel nicht gewinnen”

Sein abgekühltes Verhältnis zum Londoner Klub habe “wahrscheinlich” mit den damals leeren Stadien in der Corona-Zeit zu tun und damit, dass “Herr Levy mich einen Titel nicht gewinnen ließ”, so Mourinho, der knapp eineinhalb Jahre bei den Spurs im Amt war.

Am kommenden Mittwoch (21 Uhr, LIVE! bei kicker) kann der 60 Jahre alte Portugiese die nächste Trophäe seiner Trainerkarriere einheimsen: Im Europa-League-Finale in Budapest trifft er mit der Roma auf den FC Sevilla. In der vergangenen Saison hatte er mit den Giallorossi die erste Ausgabe der Europa Conference League und damit zum fünften Mal einen Europapokal gewonnen. 2004 (mit Porto) und 2010 (Inter) war er Champions-, 2003 (Porto) und 2017 (ManUnited) Europa-League-Sieger geworden.

‘My wish is to stay’ – Spurs suffer blow in manager hunt with Slot committing to Feyenoord

Arne Slot has ruled himself out of the running to become the next Tottenham manager, insisting he wants to stay at Feyenoord and never considered leaving.

The Dutchman was widely considered the frontrunner to become the next permanent Spurs boss, with several reports claiming a deal was imminent.

However, Slot has instead announced that he will sign a contract extension in Rotterdam after leading Feyenoord to the Eredivisie title this season.

Tottenham aiming to appoint Slot or Enrique as new manager – reports

19/05/2023 AT 12:43

“I have heard a lot about the interest of other clubs in me,” Slot said, as reported by AD.

“I am grateful for the appreciation that this expresses, but my wish is to stay with Feyenoord and continue to build on the foundations that have been laid over the past two seasons.

“There are no transfer talks going on and there have been none and yesterday’s discussion was solely about a possible extension.

“All conversations with Feyenoord are only aimed at that. I look forward to the new season at Feyenoord.”

The news comes as a blow to Spurs, who have been on the hunt for a permanent boss since Antonio Conte left in March.

His replacement, interim boss Cristian Stellini, lasted only a month before being dismissed and now Ryan Mason is leading the club until the end of the season.

Luis Enrique, Julian Nagelsmann and Mauricio Pochettino are among the other names to have been linked with the job, but Spurs appear no closer to finding their new man.

Tottenham have limped towards the finish line in the 2022-23 season, winning once in their last seven Premier League outings to tumble out of the European positions.

They will begin the final day of the season against Leeds United on Sunday in eighth place, needing to better Aston Villa’s result against Brighton if they are to squeeze into a Europa Conference League spot.

Man Utd step up Kane pursuit

Manchester United have made Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane their top transfer target for the upcoming summer window and will try to complete an early deal to bring him to Old Trafford. United manager Erik ten Hag is reportedly “obsessed” with the England captain and the club believe they can convince Spurs to sell due to Kane’s contract situation.

The 29-year-old’s current deal expires in 2024, meaning he could leave for free next summer if he does not sign an extension in north London.

Man City have three-man shortlist if Arsenal target Gundogan leaves – Paper Round

YESTERDAY AT 22:39

The Guardian reports: “Erik ten Hag is keen to sign a new striker and Kane tops a shortlist that also includes Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Rasmus Hojlund of Atalanta. United have been quoted €150m (£130m) for Osimhen, which would put the Nigerian out of their reach. Hojlund, the 20-year-old Denmark striker, would be seen as one for the future if he moves to Old Trafford this summer.

“United believe signing Kane could transform them into title contenders and they intend to test Levy’s resolve. They are wary of a saga developing and do not want to spend the entire summer chasing the Spurs striker.

“It is believed they will look to make their move early and hope they will come up with enough money to convince Levy to sell. Ten Hag is said to be obsessed with Kane.”

Mount prefers Man Utd move

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is reportedly leaning towards a move to Manchester United if he is to depart Stamford Bridge this summer. The 24-year-old is wanted by a number of Premier League sides, including Arsenal and Liverpool, as well as Bayern Munich. Mount has failed to reach an agreement for a contract extension with his boyhood club, which could lead to an exit this summer as he only has one year remaining on his current deal.

The Athletic reveals: “Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is leaning towards a move to Manchester United and talks are expected between the two clubs in due course.

“The Athletic reported in March that Liverpool were leading the list of domestic suitors for Mount, with former Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel — now at Bayern Munich — also credited with an interest. Mount is also a target for Arsenal, as Mikel Arteta seeks to bring in an option to play on the left side of his midfield trio.

“Incoming Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino wants Mount as part of his squad for next season, which leaves some optimism for a late development. But it might still depend on the two parties agreeing a new long-term deal, something that has not been able to be done since negotiations opened last summer.”

Vinicius is going nowhere

Vinicius Junior has reiterated his desire to stay at Real Madrid, despite suffering racist abuse in La Liga this season. The Brazilian has reportedly agreed to extend his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2027 and the club are expected to announce the news soon. Vinicius Junior is “not thinking of leaving” and believes he is going to be the “superstar of Real Madrid’s latest sporting project”.

Spanish media outlet AS reports: “Despite the vile racist abuse suffered at Mestalla on Sunday, Vinícius is 100% committed to Real Madrid and has no intention of leaving Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

“AS has learned that Vinícius has reaffirmed his desire to stay in Madrid to his entourage, who have been seriously concerned about the ongoing racist abuse he has suffered and a lack of protection from referees this season.

“Last summer, the Brazilian agreed to sign a new deal with Real Madrid which will keep at the club until 2027. The club are expected to officially announce the extension soon, which will be another show of support towards a key player.”

West Ham to stick with Moyes

West Ham United are likely to keep their faith in David Moyes and will back him in the summer transfer window. There have been question marks over Moyes’ long-term future at the London Stadium and he is set for a meeting with the club hierarchy at the end of the season. However, the former Everton and Manchester United boss is expected to stay in the dugout and build on the success of this season.

The Guardian writes: “Sources close to the board have been left with the impression that West Ham, who will qualify for the Europa League if they beat Fiorentina in the Conference League final on 7 June, will not be looking for a new manager this summer.

“Checks have previously been made on Paulo Fonseca, Brendan Rodgers, Graham Potter, Marco Silva and Ange Postecoglou as potential replacements for Moyes.

“One potential replacement for Rice is Palhinha, who has impressed for Fulham since joining them last summer. James Ward-Prowse, who is expected to leave Southampton following their relegation, is another option for West Ham in midfield.

“Moyes will also be keen to strengthen on the left wing and West Ham have registered an interest in Barnes. The 25-year-old has a valuation of at least £50m but he could be cheaper if Leicester are relegated on Sunday.”
