The Telegraph have revealed that Daniel Levy does not believe the ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ he had with Harry Kane involved accepting a £125m bid from Manchester City this summer.
The speculation over Kane’s future continues to rumble on but reports indicate that City have so far only offered around £125m including add-ons which is thought to be short of Daniel Levy’s asking price.
Some sources have even suggested the Premier League champions would have to sell some of their players in order to meet Spurs’ valuation of the striker.
Kane is thought to be frustrated at Levy’s antics, with the 28-year-old believing he had a gentlemen’s agreement to leave the club this summer.
The Telegraph have now revealed what the Spurs chairman thinks about the agreement and why he is continuing to maintain a tough stance on Kane.
According to the report, Levy believes the ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ he had with the striker was that he could only be sold to a foreign club.
This could only change if a Premier League club made an ‘amazing bid’ for Kane this window. It is explained that Levy does not see City’s offer of £125m as being such a bid.

As Simon Jordan pointed out earlier this week, even if there were a gentlemen’s agreement, there is no chance that Levy would have given Kane a value at which he could leave. History shows us that the Spurs chairman usually tries to milk the buying club for as much money as possible if he is forced to sell off one his assets.
