Simon Jordan reveals what Daniel Levy told him about Harry Kane in recent conversation

Simon Jordan believes there is a ‘distinct possibility’ that Harry Kane could stay at Tottenham after the conversations he has had with Daniel Levy.

Some reports from Spain over the last few days have talked up the chances of Kane moving to Real Madrid, with Marca claiming a few days ago that the centre-forward is keen on making the switch to the Santiago Bernabeu while Daniel Levy is open to selling the striker to a non-Premier League club.

This was also backed up by The Daily Mail on Tuesday, with the publication asserting that the Spurs chairman is open to selling the striker for £80m plus achievable add-ons to the La Liga giants.

However, Spurs have now used Harry Kane as the face of their kit launch for the 2023-24 season, thus seemingly sending a message about the striker’s future (talkSPORT).

Jordan has now suggested that there is a decent chance that the England captain stays at the club but also added that he cannot fathom why Levy would let the 29-year-old leave on a free in 12 months.

When asked about Kane starring in the kit launch, the former Crystal Palace owner told talkSPORT: “I’ve always felt, and that’s because I’ve had a conversation with Daniel about it, that they believe there’s a distinct possibility that he might stay.

“Of course, it’s the background noise around it and other situations around it manifesting themselves like Benzema leaving and interest being stimulated in Harry Kane by that departure.

“I can’t get my head around the idea that Daniel would let him stay for a year and let him leave on a free. It flies in the face of everything Daniel Levy does.”

It is clear that Kane would likely be happy to run into the final year of his contract at Tottenham and keep his options open ahead of next summer.

The big question is whether Levy would risk keeping Kane even if he rejects a new deal this summer in the hope that the striker would perhaps change his mind if the team shows signs of improvement next season.

I would personally sell Kane to Real Madrid this summer if he does not sign a new deal and use the funds to rebuild the squad.

While the 29-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world, one can argue that Postecoglou’s system would work better with forwards who press incessantly, which is clearly not the England captain’s biggest strength.
