Harry Kane and Heung-min Son

Heung-min Son has taken umbrage at being asked about the future of Tottenham team-mate Harry Kane.

The England striker has again been in sensational form for Spurs this past season, scoring 33 goals and recorded 17 assists for 50 overall goal contributions.

He recently won the third Premier League Golden Boot of his career following his exploits in 2020/21.

However, it is another season with nothing to show for it for Kane, as Tottenham again failed to win a trophy or even qualify for the Champions League.

Despite his excellence, he is yet to win any major silverware in his career.

This season Kane and Son broke the record for the most goal combinations in a single season, surpassing the record previously held by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton.

They are undoubtedly one of the best forward pairings in Europe, but it could be broken up this summer after the news emerged that Kane is looking to leave Tottenham.

The England star wants to start accumulating some winner's medals, and doesn't believe Tottenham can match those ambitions at the moment.

Manchester United and Manchester City are thought to be leading the race for his signature.

What has Son said?

While on international duty with South Korea, Kane was asked if he was upset at the breaking up of the partnership, but he reacted by saying his partner isn't away just yet.

"Has Kane moved already?" he responded.

"Everything is not decided. Rather than worrying about his transfer, I am doing my best at Tottenham.

"I want to focus on the national team and Tottenham. Maybe Kane is doing the same, he is busy preparing for the Euros."

Not only are Tottenham running the risk of losing Kane this summer, but they are still to appoint a permanent manager following the departure of Jose Mourinho.

As of this week, they have contacted former Inter boss Antonio Conte about a potential return to England.
