Pundit believes Kane could stay at Tottenham this summer based on one factor
Former Tottenham player and club legend Glen Hoddle believes Harry Kane could remain with Spurs this summer based on how much Daniel Levy will demand.
Speaking on talkSPORT, the ex-England manager claimed that very few clubs will be able to offer Tottenham the funds needed to sign Kane. The Spurs striker is eager to move on from the north London club this summer as reported by Sky Sports News.
Kane has been a standout player for Spurs over the years, with the striker this season scoring and assisting the most goals in the Premier League, and Hoddle believes that the attacker’s price tag will be too high for clubs to make a realistic offer.
The pundit said: “Who knows he might still stay at Tottenham because of the circumstances,” with Hoddle later adding: “He’s 28 and it’s going to be limited what sort of clubs are going to pay that sort of money because it’s going to be a lot that Daniel Levy will want for him.
“So, I don’t think it’s over and done with, I’ve got to say. A lot of things have got to fall into place for it to happen.”

Kane’s future will likely be one of the biggest talking points in the media over the summer, yet the reality is that Hoddle is bang on the mark about the Tottenham attacker’s most likely destination.
With football financially ravaged by the pandemic and Kane coming off another productive season for Spurs, very few teams will have the funds to spend on the 27-year-old attacker, who more than likely will be a Premier League transfer record.
Given that Kane also has three years remaining on his current deal with the north London club, it will be smart business sense from interested teams to wait another 12 months to make a move for the England attacker as it would likely see his value drop as well as give sides more time to recoup funds to finance a move.
