Fabrizio Romano has claimed that clubs around Europe will find it difficult to steal Harry Kane away from Tottenham this summer.
A lot has been said and written about Kane’s future over the last few weeks, with reports claiming that the striker will ask to leave Spurs if the club do not get back into the Champions League.
Several clubs in the Premier League and around Europe have been credited with an interest in the 27-year-old but it remains to be seen whether they would be able to afford the striker, with some claiming that Daniel Levy will demand around £175m for Kane.
It is not just Tottenham’s bumper asking price that Romano feels could hinder the possibility of Kane leaving the club but also the wages that the striker is on.
The journalist also confidently asserted that the striker will not have an internal war with the club if a transfer does not materialise in the summer.
When asked about the Tottenham star’s future, the journalist said on the Que Golazo Podcast (as relayed by HITC): “All top clubs who could be interested in Harry Kane are in a difficult situation right now to pay £150m or this sort of fee for Kane.
“It’s really, really complicated and it’s a different transfer market, so I don’t see an easy situation for top clubs interested in Harry Kane.
“We have to mention Manchester City appreciating the player for sure, but remember what Pep said a week ago. They cannot pay enormous fees for top players.
“When you mention the fee, you also have to mention the condition of the agent, the big salary of the player and his long contract, so it won’t be absolutely easy to do this negotiation in the summer.
“I am curious to see how it develops. Harry has always been respectful. I know he has this desire to play in the Champions League, but for sure if he’s staying at Tottenham, he will stay at Tottenham and fight for Tottenham, so I am 100% sure that they won’t have an internal war between Kane and Tottenham, they will decide together.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Romano has perfectly summed up the reasons why Spurs fans should be optimistic about the prospect of holding on to Kane. The 27-year-old is not the sort of player to do ‘a Berbatov’ and demand a move away even if Tottenham’s asking price is not met.
