Tottenham chief Daniel Levy will only consider offers for Harry Kane starting at £125million, according to reports. Manchester United have supposedly been given ‘signals’ that the England international wants to join. But prising him away from Spurs will be easier said than done, writes the Express.
Tottenham have endured a problematic campaign, recently sacking Jose Mourinho after a dire season so far.
However, Kane has continued to sparkle despite their difficulties – scoring 21 goals and registering 13 assists in the Premier League alone.
With Spurs looking set to miss out on a place in next season’s Champions League, Kane has been tipped to depart.
And Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet claim Tottenham chief Levy wants at least £125m to negotiate the potential departure of his side’s talisman.
It’s said that Kane has given signals that he’s open to moving to Old Trafford, although they aren’t specified.
However, with his price tag so high, it’s unclear whether United will go after him with vigour at the end of the campaign.
Levy is a staunch negotiator, often posing problems for opposition sides.
And United haven’t signed a player from Tottenham since Dimitar Berbatov in 2008, with Spurs angered by the Bulgaria international’s departure.
Levy had agreed to sell Berbatov to Manchester City, who tried to hijack a deal with Mark Hughes at the helm.
But United swooped in, forced Tottenham into accepting a lower fee and angered the north London giants hugely in the process.
In the time since, Tottenham have adamantly refused to sell their prized assets.
