Paul Merson makes bold Spurs claim which Daniel Levy won't like
Paul Merson has claimed that Spurs won’t get more than £70million for Harry Kane next year.
In addition, the Sky Sports pundit also claimed the Tottenham talisman will be “hurt” by seeing the star-studded Chelsea bench on Sunday.
Kane was linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer, but Daniel Levy resisted the Premier League champions’ attempts to sign the striker.
In the end, the England captain stayed put at N17, but he’s not got off to the best start this season.
He’s yet to score in the Premier League, with his two club goals this season coming in the Europa Conference League qualifiers.
“Teams won’t pay £100m for him”
Merson, writing in the Daily Star, also reckons the 28-year-old will go next year – and not for how much he could’ve potentially fetched this summer.
“Chelsea will have a bench full of players Tottenham would kill for this weekend – and that has to hurt Harry Kane,” he wrote.
“He missed his big chance to move to a top four club this summer and he’ll be playing against one that has gone past Spurs big time in the last few years.
“I’m not being horrible but the top four aren’t going to Palace and losing 3-0 are they?
“I know they had a player sent off but even at 0-0 they never looked like winning the game.
“Harry Kane never really touched the ball. Did he even have a shot?
“He’s going to be a year older next year and they’re not going to qualify for the Champions League.
“The gulf is too big. Teams won’t pay £100m for him next summer. They will only want to pay £60m or £70m for him when he’s 29.
“He’s just got to keep doing what he does, and that’s score goals. If he does, I think someone takes him.
“But it won’t be for the money Daniel Levy wants.”
