Daniel Levy has made it clear that Harry Kane will not be leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer unless someone can stump up at least 150 million pounds in cash.
Due to the precarious economic situation within the game because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was thought that some teams were going to propose deal that would see money plus a player or two exchanged, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has quashed such a deal, stating only cash will do.
Levy has a reputation in the game for playing hardball in the transfer market and it seems that will be the case once again with regard to any bids for their prized possession.
Who does this rule out?
The Sun have already revealed that Manchester City are willing to offer Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus plus 60 million pounds for Kane, which seems a fair deal but maybe not for the wellbeing of the two players exiting Manchester City.
Sterling is thought to be on 300,000 pounds per week, while both players wouldn’t want to drop from the Champions League to the Europa Conference League.
Other teams thought to be interested
Manchester United and Chelsea have also been speaking to Kane’s representatives, but formal negotiations have not yet begun, with Levy hoping that his star man will honour the remaining three years left on his contract.
It would probably be in Tottenham’s best interests not to start any form of negotiations until after Euro 2020, as Kane is more than likely going to increase his value, should he have a successful tournament.
It would surely be a disaster for Tottenham should their talisman leave the club this summer.
Levy will be hoping and praying for his captain to stay at the club, but should he leave, the Tottenham chairman will have to act fast in order to replace him with new recruits.
