According to a report from The Sun, Harry Kane is likely to stay put at Tottenham beyond the summer as the striker is not prepared to force his way out of the club.
Several pundits have been banging the drum for Kane to leave Spurs at the end of this season so that the England captain can compete for the biggest trophies in the game.
However, The Daily Mail revealed earlier this week that Daniel Levy will refuse to listen to any offers for the talismanic striker from domestic rivals while his £150m asking price is likely to put off other suitors like Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
The Sun now claim that Levy will demand £175m for Kane’s signature this summer and that continental clubs are not in a position to pay such a fee due the financial implications of COVID.
The report asserts that while Kane realises he has to leave Tottenham in order to compete for the biggest honours, he loves the club and is not willing to demand a move away.

It looks like the pandemic might have ended any chance of Kane leaving Spurs this summer. Under normal economic circumstances, one would have backed Real Madrid to potentially even shatter the world record transfer fee to take Kane to the Santiago Bernabeu. However, no club in Europe is likely to be in a position to spend in excess of £150m on any one player this summer, let alone someone who will be 28 years of age.
