Harry Kane: a nod is as good as a wink to a blind bat
There has been a lot of hush-hush talks between Spurs and City over Kane of late. It all reminds me of that Monty Python sketch:
S: (confused) I’m afraid I don’t quite follow you.
M: Follow me. Follow me. That’s good, that’s good! A nod’s as good as a
wink to a blind bat!
S: Are you, uh,…are you selling something?
M: SELLING! Very good, very good! Ay? Ay? Ay?
And, yes, Tottenham are selling something, Harry Kane… but all done in secret as they actually want to keep him (confused, aren’t we all), but if he does go, then they will screw the purchaser, upside down, to the mast of a ship until all the pennies drop from their pockets.
Yes, talks between Tottenham officials and Manchester City officials have been going on in secret in the background during the Euros, according to the well-respected sports journal, The Athletic. However, one of the conditions of such talks (made by Spurs, I imagine) was that they would remain discreet so it would not distract Kane’s efforts with England. That may be one reason, but I doubt it was the only reason. Such knowledge released to the crowd could create hostility towards Levy and co.
Manchester City are reported to be prepared to pay over £100million for Kane, however, whether that is acceptable to Levy, I doubt it. Nevertheless, such a figure could be used as a starting process (as all good deals are dealt with).
We all know that Levy doesn’t want Kane to go and will keep him if he can, but money talks for Levy, and if City do increase their offer, Levy’s knees might start to buckle and then he could give in to temptation. But Levy won’t sell Kane at any price as he still has three years left on his contract (it all sounds like a maze of confusion, but nothing is simple with Levy).
The Athletic report also claims that some sources feel that the money on the table could be too good to turn down, considering Kane turns 28 later this month and Spurs needs funds to buy new players.
I have been consistently saying that he will stay. But we will see!
Let us hope for the best result for Tottenham,
