Ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has claimed that Daniel Levy would sell Harry Kane to Manchester City this summer if the right price comes in (talkSPORT).
The transfer saga took another shock twist on Monday when Harry Kane did not turn up to training at Hotspur Way; he was scheduled to partake in a coronavirus test.
He then also failed to report for training on Tuesday morning, leaving his future at the club up in the air (The Guardian).
Kane is reportedly trying to force a move away from North London this summer, with Manchester City very interested in signing the England captain in a lucrative deal (Sky Sports).
Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Kane chose not to show up for training because he wants to leave the club this summer and the situation between him and the board is ‘tense’.
Redknapp was Spurs’ manager from 2008 to 2012 so is no stranger to Levy’s antics. He claimed the Tottenham chairman would indeed sell Kane but only under the right conditions.
Redknapp said: “Unless he has something in writing, unless he has an actual figure.
“Daniel is probably saying: ‘Yes, I will sell you. I will stand you by my word if I said I will sell you. But I am not going to sell you cheap.’
“It did (surprise) me, yes, you know him as well as I do (speaking to Darren Bent). You wouldn’t have expected that.
“I would have thought that he would have just turned up and had a meeting with Daniel again. I am sure his advisors are meeting with Daniel.
“I was a bit surprised. I am sure he will come into training today. Not the best way to go about it. He is loved at Tottenham.”
Redknapp knows Levy more than anyone and it seems fair that he would sell Kane for the right amount of money. But whether City will pay whatever that sum is the question that has to get answered at some point.
