Tottenham star Harry Kane responds when asked about Daniel Levy relationship
Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has told Gary Neville on The Overlap’s YouTube channel that he has a strong relationship with Daniel Levy – but claims that Levy might want to sell him, if £100million is offered to Tottenham.
Kane, 27, has rocked the footballing world by stating that he wants to leave Tottenham – reportedly informing the board of his desire to leave. Spurs are unlikely to even qualitfy for Europa League football this season.
The England skipper now has 32 goals in 48 games for Spurs this season, while also laying on an impressive 16 assists in that time. But with three years left to run on his contract he is keen to leave and achieve silverware.
Speaking to Neville on the golf course in a snippet of a longer interview, Kane spoke of how he believes he needs to have a conversation with Levy and his relationship with the Spurs supremo – claiming Levy might even want to sell.
“He’s been great with me if I am totally honest,” Kane said. “He’s always rewarded me with contracts. Obviously a signed a four or five-year deal when I was 21, but I’ve done well so he’s added to that. He’s been fair with me.
“He’s never held me to a contract – it’s never ‘I’ve given you that so your’re going to stay on that’. I’m not sure how the conversation will go if I’m honest. As players, you don’t know what the chairman is thinking.
“He might want to sell me. He might be thinking, if I could get £100million for you – then why not. I’m not going to be worth that in the next two or three years. I hope we can have a good honest conversation.”
TBR’s view – Will Levy sanction sale?
Levy will sanction a sale this summer, at least, that is what Kane deserves if he asks for it. But what is likely to go alongside that, is that Kane’s asking price will have to be met – and that is believed to be £150million.
If Spurs receive bids underneath that figure, then Levy will not compromise. The only way in which the North London club might want to accept a smaller fee, is if Kane goes in return for a player along with cash.
If Manchester City included Gabriel Jesus, for example, then that fee would be reduced considerably.
