Eurosport have reported that Daniel Levy’s stance regarding Harry Kane has not changed despite the striker admitting to Gary Neville that he is hopeful of having an honest conversation with the Tottenham chairman.

Kane hinted to Neville that his future will be in his hands despite having three years left on his current Spurs contract.

Eurosport claim that the striker is prepared to put in a formal transfer request if the situation continues to drag on.

It is suggested that the striker has heard what Levy has had to say about Tottenham’s search for a new manager and he is not convinced that his interest would be best served by sticking around.

However, it is explained that Levy’s stance has not changed despite Kane’s public admission.

The Tottenham chairman has reportedly made it clear that the striker is not for sale to a domestic rival, with Paris Saint-Germain named as the England captain’s most likely destination.

The report also suggests that Levy wants more than the £150m price being branded about by some sources, with the Spurs chairman likely to demand closer to the £200m mark.

Kane also remarked in the interview with Neville that Tottenham might want to sell him this summer since they are unlikely to get the same value in subsequent transfer windows.

However, Eurosport suggest that the North London club would not mind taking a hit financially and selling the 27-year-old in 12 months time.

This is because they believe Kane could lead Spurs back into the Champions League, which is worth about £50m in itself, and the financial landscape could be more settled in a year.

Additionally, Kane leaving next summer would also give the club more time to sign suitable replacements.

Spurs Web Opinion

There are a couple of reasons why I am confident that Kane will stay at Spurs for at least one more year. The club hierarchy’s popularity has taken a massive hit recently and Levy will be well aware that selling Kane could potentially lead the tension to boil over and result in large scale protests. Secondly, Levy will know that keeping Kane will make the club a much more attractive destination to his main managerial targets.

  1. Keeping a player who has openly said he wants to leave is not a good idea. Kane although not known to be a player to cause trouble could if denied his move change, go on strike cause division in the camp for the new manager and do a danny rose by talking to the press. I say let him go he owes tottenham nothing they owe him this move.

  2. I can understand Harry wanting to leave, it must be gutting seeing players like Phil Foden celebrating his third title at 21. However Spurs fans have also suffered many trophy less years but don’t decide to go and support Man City or Man Utd in search of honours. They continue to turn up week in week out in the hope of one day seeing some silverware, paying to do so and contributing towards the huge wages players like Harry are privileged to earn.
