Former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has warned Harry Kane that his options may be limited if he still wants to leave Tottenham by the end of the current season.
It was reported the 28-year-old made it known to the Spurs chiefs that he wanted a move away from N17 over the summer.
Manchester City showed the most interest out of every club, with Pep Guardiola revealing his desire to bring Kane to the Etihad Stadium.
A transfer, though, never came to fruition after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy held firm in his view that Kane was not for sale, meaning he will remain in North London for the start of this season at least.
Kane enjoyed one of the most productive campaigns of his career last season, but came away empty-handed as Spurs failed to end their trophy drought, which has extended to over 13 years.
It is still up in the air whether Kane’s future is at Spurs, but former Premier League midfielder Palmer believes a move next summer will be challenging, with only a handful of clubs potentially able to prise him away.
Palmer told Football FanCast: “Whoever’s going to come in for him, they’re going to have to pay in excess of £130-140m, so that doesn’t put a lot of teams in that bracket.
“You’re only looking at your PSGs, your Man Uniteds, your Man Citys or your Real Madrids. They’re the only clubs really who can pay that type of money.”

It is true that Kane might find it tricky to move next summer, with him still having two years left on his Spurs contract. Levy will not back down on his valuation that easily, as seen already, which means the clubs above are really the only ones who would be willing to shell out that value.
