According to a report from The Times, Tottenham Hotspur will demand £100 million up front for Harry Kane if the player is to leave the club in the summer.
Kane has spent his whole career with Tottenham, having come through the club’s academy and youth teams.
He now has 271 goals in 424 appearances for the Lilywhites (Transfermarkt) and recently became the club’s all-time leading goalscorer (GOAL).
Despite an impressive return for Kane individually this season, with 23 goals already (Transfermarkt), Spurs are set to end the campaign empty-handed once more.
The fact Kane continues to be without a trophy has led many to suggest he will leave the club.
Kane’s current contract expires next summer and the England captain has been continually linked with a move to Manchester United (Manchester Evening News).
However, Sky Sports reported recently that Spurs have no intention of letting Kane go. This was also corroborated by Fabrizio Romano on his YouTube channel.
Now, the latest from The Times claims that Tottenham will demand a fee of £100 million up front for their star striker.
It is thought this valuation is intended to “deter Manchester United” from making an approach, as Spurs are reluctant to sell to a “domestic rival.”
With the Red Devils looking to “reshape their attack for next season,” there is a belief that they may be reluctant to get involved in “lengthy and complicated negotiations” with Spurs.
The report adds that there may be interest from abroad, with the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich circling.
However, with Kane having a “stated desire” to break the Premier League goalscoring record, Spurs are feeling “quietly confident” they can keep their main man beyond the summer.
Spurs Web Opinion
We always knew Daniel Levy and the Spurs board would make it extremely difficult for a rival like Manchester United to sign Harry Kane, and so they should.
I can’t see Kane leaving England, and I don’t know that Manchester United have the patience to get the deal done, so there’s a good chance Kane will stay whether he likes it or not.
