“Harry Kane must be a starting point”- Antonio Conte says the striker is very important for Tottenham’s future

Spurs boss says the striker is important for the future as Spurs prepare to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the semi finals of the Carabao Cup.

Harry Kane wanted to leave Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the summer to Manchester City with the blues wanting to replace Sergio Aguero who left the club after eleven years. However after the whole transfer fiasco the England international decided to stay with the North London outfit. 

Since then a lot has happened at Tottenham with Nuno Espirito Santo sacked after string of poor results, with Antonio Conte hired after reportedly rejecting the first offer with the Italian waiting for Manchester United job. Spurs progress under Conte has been immense and the manager said in his recent interview that he was aware of the whole Harry Kane situation and also that the striker is very much involved with the project going forward.
