Tottenham Hotspur owner Daniel Levy is reportedly trying hard to hold on to Harry Kane and deny him a move to a Premier League rival. Kane is thought to be considering a move elsewhere ahead of the next season if Spurs fail to qualify for the Champions League. On Sunday, Spurs lost to Manchester United 1-3 and lost ground in the Top four race which increased the possibility of Kane’s exit. Reportedly, United are one of the clubs interested in signing Harry Kane.
According to The Athletic, Levy will not sell Kane to a domestic rival under any circumstances. Kane has three more years of contract left with Tottenham, and this could give rise to a conflict with the Tottenham hierarchy.
Last year the England captain expressed about the possibility to leave after he said that he wouldn’t stay at the club “just for the sake of it” if they couldn’t match his ambitions.
Kane is in the twilight of his career and hasn’t won a trophy yet . The Englishman will turn 28 in July and these factors could decide his future at the club.
Kane’s chances of a big money move might be hampered by the rise of youngsters -Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe. 20-year-old Haaland might seem like a better long term option for many clubs.
“For Kane he’d be looking at this United team today and listen they’ve made progress over the last 12 months and surely Kane must be thinking: ‘I could be the top man at Manchester United up front y’know?,” said former Manchester United defender Roy Keane in an interaction with Sky Sports.
“With the service he’d be getting, Kane must fancy United. I think Kane fancies United, I just have that feeling that he fancies United. Just a gut feeling,” he added.
