Talks between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have been going on in the background during the Euros, according to The Athletic.
The talks were ongoing during the recent tournament with the understanding that it would remain discreet so it would not distract Kane’s efforts with England.
City are reported to be prepared to pay in excess of £100million for the 27-year-old, but it is not clear whether they would increase their offer to around £150million which could potentially see Daniel Levy take the bid more seriously.
The Spurs chairman is said to be insistent that the striker, who has three years left on his contract is not for sale at any price and at this stage it is expected that he will remain in North London.
The report claims that some sources feel that the money on the table is too good to turn down considering Kane turns 28 later this month and they need funds to be able to buy new players.
Tottenham need to keep Kane at all costs, losing him would be a massive blow to any hopes we have of breaking back into the top four and ending our thirteen-year wait for a trophy.
Kane’s workload is that of at least two players, replacing a 20-plus goal striker and a player who provided 15-plus assists would cost a significant amount of money with no guarantee they will be a success at Spurs.
