Football finance expert Kieran Maguire has revealed that Daniel Levy would not sell Harry Kane in the summer for anything less than what he deems to be the striker’s market value.
As has become the norm every season, there has been plenty of speculation about Kane’s future over the last few months.
Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has urged the England captain to quit Tottenham if he wants to have a chance of winning the biggest trophies in the game (Sky Sports).
However, some other sources continue to suggest that the 27-year-old is likely to stay put at Tottenham.
The Atheltic’s David Ornstein revealed two weeks ago that those at Spurs expect Kane to finish his career at the club while Sky Sports Kaveh Solhekol has confidently claimed that it is virtually impossible for any club to afford Kane this summer.
Maguire believes that Levy is not going to be short-changed for Kane even if the striker decides he wants to leave.
He told Football Insider: “It will all come down to Daniel Levy and what his ambitions are.
“Kane’s on £200,000 per week and he’s had that for three years, he’ll have earned more than £30m in the last three years. He could afford to take a pay cut and still never have to work again once he’s finished his football career.
“So that isn’t an issue. It’s more of a case of how keen Spurs are to sell him.
“They’ve had an okay but unspectacular season. Had it not been for Harry Kane it would have been far worse. So he is worth an awful lot of money to them. Levy is a top negotiator and would only do a deal at the right price.”

I believe there is no chance of Kane leaving Spurs for anything less than a world-record transfer fee even if the striker wants out. Given the current financial climate, it is difficult to see any club in Europe being able to afford him. Kane is also not the type of person to sulk and force a move away from the club.
