Kane: will he, won’t he, go? Yes, but at a price
For years there has been a lot of speculation about whether Kane will stay or go to another more ambitious club. And season after season, he has stayed, but last season was the final straw; he wants out. He wants a club that can win him trophies and glory. But Daniel Levy wants to be the man who has a padlock on his purse (ingoing and outgoing),
According to the latest report( from TuttoMercato Web), Daniel Levy values Harry Kane at around £170m, while other sources say that Levy values him at £200m. Paris St Germain are one of the clubs who are interested in him; while closer to home, we’ve got Chelsea, United, and City also prepared to open their purse strings as wide as possible to capture him.
That oracle of all things Tottenham, and with his inside knowledge, Alasdair Gold (from Football London) believes that Tottenham remain determined to hang on to the striker and that it might take a world record offer to get Daniel Levy to part with the player.
TMW claimed that City, United and Chelsea are still determined to get him. In particular, Roman Abramovich who would love to get one over on his club’s rival. The report from TMW reveals that Spurs have already rejected an offer of around £98.25m for the England & Tottenham captain.
According to other reports, Levy is demanding an unbelievable £170.87m for the sale of their loyal servant to the club (well, not so much a servant know, but a hostage to fortune). Levy believes that he has developed his player through the Tottenham academy and right through the ranks, thus won’t let him go without a good money fight for him.
If Kane does want to leave, then it is assumed that he would have to force his way out of the club he has called home for 17 years.
I don’t believe that Kane will cause any trouble if he can’t go and will just knuckle down and act like the professional he is. However, with another trophy loss against Italy in the final on Sunday, it might have focused his thoughts on whether to force the issue or succumb to Levy’s charm.
As for us, will we really miss him? I know it is a tricky one. To me, it is all about team effort, not individuality. Remember; we finished in 7th place with him and never won a trophy, 6 other clubs above us did better without Kane in their squad. Nevertheless, if we win nothing again without him, the crowd will blame Levy for selling him. If he goes and we start to win trophies, Kane’s leaving will be quickly forgotten (but he certainly would be gutted).
