Tottenham Hotspur ‘will sanction’ the exit of Harry Kane to Manchester Utd in a world-record move, according to reports.
The reasons are two-fold: ‘financial worries’ amid the current global pandemic, and ‘exasperation’ due to the player ‘going off-message’ with some quite understandable recent comments.
Tottenham’s ongoing stadium payments mean they ‘fear the financial repercussions of the current lockdown more than any other Premier League club’. Tell that to Burnley or Norwich, who could literally go out of business and don’t have Champions League money to guard against that.
But that, combined with Levy being ‘furious’ at Kane for suggesting the season should be voided, means the idea of selling the striker is ‘gaining favour’.
And while his £200m asking price ‘would be optimistic’ in the ongoing climate, any fee ‘is sure to smash’ the £89.3m Man Utd paid Juventus for Paul Pogba in 2016.
