Daniel Levy will demand £100m to sell one Tottenham player to another PL club
At the end of the season, Kane’s Tottenham contract will have just one year to run, which should impact his market value.
But the Telegraph report that if another English club wants Kane, they would have to pay £100 million for the England captain.
The report says that Kane could go overseas for less money, indicating Levy’s clear reluctance to strengthen a domestic rival.
Levy still wants high asking price for Kane
Levy is of course a notoriously tough negotiator and will not want to lose his club’s talisman on the cheap, and certainly not to put the finishing touches on a rival’s attack.
But his position is hardly the strongest if Kane goes until the end of the season without signing a new contract, and he will have a decision to make.
Spurs could try and get some form of fee for Kane then, eliminating the prospect of losing him for nothing, or keep pushing on at a potential financial detriment.
He’ll be sold. The economics of keeping him are not feasible. 80 mill lost plus 14 mill wages for one season isn’t happening.— Paul O Keefe (@pokeefe1) January 17, 2023
It seems that Kane and Antonio Conte’s futures may well be intertwined and at the moment, there cannot be much confidence either man would stay.
Spurs are a club in flux right now, with little unity or direction, and Levy is seemingly unwilling to hand Conte huge money until the Italian commits to the club.
Of course, a major part of Conte’s decision to stay is whether he will be backed or not – as well as whether he will keep his best players, and Kane is undoubtedly one of those.
