Harry Kane has been told to do all he can to leave Spurs this summer if he can, despite the club’s insistence on keeping their star striker.
Manchester City are hoping to be able to do a mega-money deal to bring Kane to The Etihad if they can. However, so far, Spurs and Daniel Levy have remained adamant in their efforts to keep the England skipper.
Tottenham are reportedly looking at getting close to £150m for Kane to even consider selling. And with City also in the hunt to land Jack Grealish, it’s looking increasingly difficult for Kane to get out of the club.
But Jermaine Jenas, who played for Spurs in his career, believes Kane needs to force the issue if he can, despite Levy’s business acumen.
Everyone in football knows Daniel Levy is a hard man at times. If he doesn’t want to sell Kane, then the chances are, he won’t.
And Jenas, speaking to the Daily Star, believes that Levy will stick to his guns with Kane, although he believes the striker should leave if the chance arises.
“If they ever leave, it’s last minute, on the last day, when Daniel Levy has squeezed every last drop out of the deal that he can get. And with Harry, he’s got three years left on his deal, and I’m like I don’t know how you’re going to get out here mate,” Jenas said.
“None of it makes sense from a business point of view which is where Daniel operates best really. So I think Harry is going to struggle, but if he can he should 100% leave.
“He’s given everything to that football club, it’s time for Harry now, to go and spend the next five years on the world stage playing Champions League football, year in year out, winning trophies winning Premier League titles and scoring goals because he deserves it.”
It seems, for now, that Spurs are simply digging their heels in when it comes to Kane and City. The Londoners know City have cash and if they want their star man, it’s simply a case of paying up.
This one, it seems, is not over just yet.
