Ramon Vega has taken to social media to claim that Tottenham will not be considering any offers below £200m for Harry Kane this summer after the striker scored a brace in England’s 4-0 win over Ukraine on Saturday.
It was reported last month that City had launched an opening offer of £100m for Kane and that Pep Guardiola’s men were also willing to include the likes of Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus as a part of the deal.
However, the ball very much remains in Tottenham’s court, with the striker still having three years left to run on his contract.
The Spurs star came in for plenty of criticism for his lacklustre displays in the group stages but he has once again silenced his critics, turning in Jack Grealish’s cross in the 2-0 win over Germany in the round of 16 before putting the Ukrainians to the sword in the quarter-final.
Vega is adamant, on the back of Kane’s recent displays, that it would take a world-record transfer fee of £200m to bring the North London club to the negotiating table.
Here’s how he reacted to the England’s captain’s performance:

While it is only normal for players’ valuations to increase if they do well in a major international tournament, I do not believe that is the case with Kane.
The 27-year-old has proven over the last six or seven years that he is one of the world’s elite marksmen and I suspect Levy would have likely demanded £150m-£200m even if he had failed to score a single goal at the Euros.
