Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Pascal Chimbonda believes that the club could soon receive approaches for their top stars.
Spurs are currently fourteenth in the Premier League table and are already eleven points behind Manchester City who occupy fourth spot.
Failure to qualify for the Champions League for another successive season could see some of the European elite try and prise the likes of Harry Kane away from North London.
Chimbonda believes that if an approach is made for the Spurs marksman, chairman Daniel Levy will demand a world record fee to part with Kane.
The England captain has previously stated that he will remain at Spurs as long as the club continue to match his ambitions (ESPN).
With the likes of Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen all out of contract next summer, Spurs are in somewhat of a transition.
Chimbonda has claimed that Real Madrid, PSG and Barcelona would break the bank to land Kane.
He told gambling.com: “If he was to sell Kane, you know Levy is not going to let him go lightly. I don’t think he’d accept anything less than what PSG paid Barcelona for Neymar (€222million) so it might have to be another world record if anyone wanted to buy him.
“I wouldn’t put it past Real Madrid, Barcelona or even PSG paying that sort of money, because what we’ve seen over the past couple of years is that money is no real object if one of the top, top clubs really want a specific player.”
If Kane left Tottenham, it would be a catastrophic decision by the club to sell one of their own. Finding a replacement for a 20+ goal striker is not cheap and would cause an uproar among the North London faithful.
