Daniel Levy (I want money) and Fabio Paratici
Daniel Levy will not entertain any part-exchange deals he may receive from any club which are interested in signing our illustrious goal scorer. The Tabloid paper the Sun claim that our Chairman will expect any bids to consist purely of cash, and he is looking for at least £160 million if not more if he is to even consider the prospect of selling Kane.
So there you are, “Money, money, money in a rich man’s world”. But where will that money go if Kane is sold? In the coffers pockets or used to buy new players? That is more of an interesting question.
It seems that Kane has been knocking on Levy’s door for a second time to say he wants to leave. He has interest from clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United (Sky Sports claim).
City, it is believed, wants to offer Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus plus £60m to try and lure Kane to them. So, that idea seems to be shot out of the sky, and now City must go back to the drawing boards and think again. However, Daniel Levy expects Kane to see out the remaining three years of his contract at the club.
It is obviously by that statement that Levy never had any intention to sell Kane; however, probably feeling cornered, he has put such strict conditions for the sale of Kane that most clubs, if not all, will bulk at the hoops Levy expects them to jump through.
It is evident that Levy didn’t go into business to be taken for a ride. People who have worked with him and have dealt with him said he is a very hard negotiator and will get his pound of flesh.
Some business people are as tight as a camel’s arsehole in a sandstorm.
It is reported that officials from the club have travelled to Italy and will meet with Fabio Paratici ahead of his arrival to N17. The Athletic website said that a meeting will be held in Turin today (9th), and he will fly to London later this week, where he will be formally announced.
Paratici will be given the title of General Manager, and once started, he will have a busy few weeks on his hands with the Board seeking a new head coach. The transfer window is set to open from tomorrow for twelve weeks until 11pm on Tuesday, August 31.
Some have questioned his ability to sell players with big contracts on occasions to help balance the books. He has also played a role in bringing Cristiano Ronaldo, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Paulo Dybala and Kingsley Coman to Juventus.
Levy needs to get his act together and quickly. We are not that far away from the transfer window, and we still haven’t got a manager to take charge of the team.
It has now been 52 days since Levy sacked Jose Mourinho (just before a cup final), and on top of that, the supporters have been up in arms, making Levy and the Board very unpopular. Unless we instantly turn things around, I can see a very bumpy ride for Levy and the Board for this upcoming season. Therefore, it is essential that Levy gets the managers position right and then buys the players that will fit into the new manager’s system.
We finished 7th and only qualified for Europe because UEFA created a new competition for those who have failed to get into the Europa League. I think we will be like Celtic in that Europa competition; a big fish in a tiny pond… failure to win the trophy will put Levy and the Boards heads on the block.
