Ex-Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to give his take on Harry Kane’s reported ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Daniel Levy.

Lineker stated that it is a ‘sad reflection’ because ‘you can’t trust someone’s word’.

The Evening Standard reported in May that Kane believed he had a gentleman’s agreement with the Spurs chairman which meant that he would be allowed to leave the North Londers

The report stated that the Spurs chairman has shaken hands over a transfer this summer if Kane still had the desire to seek a new challenge.

Manchester City were the club linked with the England captain all summer but Kane has now confirmed that he is staying at Tottenham this summer. 

Lineker took to Twitter to give his opinion on the situation, sympathising with the England captain.

He said, replying to Henry Winter’s Tweet: “Different point, but yes it’s a sad reflection of the times that you can’t trust someone’s word these days.”

I disagree with Lineker and think Kane was somewhat foolish to fool for Levy’s tactics in this situation.

If it’s not in writing, don’t bother trying to go to war with Levy – especially with three years left on his contract.
