Glenn Hoddle reckons Tottenham player will leave club in the next few days
Glenn Hoddle has told Optus Sport’s coverage of Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 win over Manchester City that he thinks Harry Kane will leave this week. Kane was absent from the squad, but could play in Portugal. Now, Hoddle thinks Manchester City could sign Tottenham talisman Kane this week.
Kane, 28, has been included in a 25-man Europa League Conference squad that Nuno Espirito Santo will take to Portugal on Thursday. England skipper Kane supposedly trained on Friday and Sunday morning. But the striker was not seen at Tottenham’s stadium, as Spurs beat City 1-0.
That is, despite, every other player from England’s starting line-up in the Euro 2020 final featuring over the weekend. Ex-Tottenham manager Hoddle reckons Kane will leave the club by the end of the week – despite numerous reports suggesting he will stay. Hoddle thinks he will cost £130million.
“I think Harry will be a City player by the end of the week,” Hoddle said. “I think if is the right price, it suits both clubs. The main thing for Tottenham is that they get him over the line and get it done, so that the money can be spent – probably not all of it – before the deadline shuts. It would be a disaster for Tottenham if they sold him late in the window.
Spurs fans can put up with Kane going, but to put with him going in the last 24 hours of the window is ludicrous. Get the deal done. They’re looking at players to bring in now to replace him. A year down the line, Harry is a year older, it wouldn’t surprise me if Daniel [Levy] knows it is the right time to sell. I think about £130million would see him go.”
Kane to Manchester City: One obstacle remains amid Hoddle claim
It is the same obstacle that has remained since the beginning of the summer – since Kane bizarrely spoke to Gary Neville about his future. Any other player than the England captain would have been criticised for doing so. The obstacle in question, remains to be the massive asking price.
It was said before the window started, and has been said regularly since. Unless Tottenham and Levy do not receive the fee they want for Kane, then he will remain at Tottenham. His brother and agent is to blame for that. No release clause was included in the six-year deal he signed in 2018.
