According to a report from TEAMtalk, Daniel Levy is not willing to bend to Harry Kane’s demands over a new contract after the striker’s move to Manchester City failed to materialise in the summer.
Kane allegedly tried to force himself out of Spurs by not reporting for training in time from his summer holiday but Levy held firm during the transfer window.
Sources have since indicated that the England captain would be open to begin talks over a new deal with Tottenham but is hoping the club agree to insert a release clause in any new deal.
TEAMtalk have now revealed the striker is seeking a deal worth up to £500,000-a-week and the North London club are open to offering him that amount.
However, they explain that the Spurs chairman is in no mood to bend to any other suggestions coming from the player’s camp.
The report suggests that Levy is not likely to cave into the striker’s demands of a release clause since the 28-year-old has three years left to run on his deal.
It is asserted that the proposed clauses, if any, would only be based around Tottenham’s performances over the coming seasons rather than being fee-related.
Spurs Web Opinion
Given that sources have indicated that City are unlikely to reignite their interest in Kane in future windows, the striker’s options are now severely limited if he wants to remain in the Premier League.
So, there really is no incentive for Spurs to offer him a pay-rise while also adding a release clause in his contract, particularly since the 28-year-old has three more years left to run on his deal.
