This summer, Harry Kane is 28. He didn’t win anything and now it seems highly unlikely that his Tottenham club will be in next season’s Champions League. Now we know that the England captain’s ballpark price tag for Tottenham is north of £ 150 million. Kane is one of the best No 9s in the world and great players are never expected to come cheap. But right now, the price still feels a little top-heavy.
Daniel Levy, president of Spurs, insists he doesn’t want to sell at all, but definitely doesn’t want to sell to a club in Manchester. Among all the stuff that Levy doesn’t like, at the top of the list is the insinuation that his club remains vulnerable to the whims, fancies and inclinations of the big beasts of the north. Anyway, we remain in the grip of a pandemic. In stadiums we still have no crowds and absolutely no idea when we will see a capacity next, if ever.
Manchester United has already suggested, with this in mind, that extravagant transfer investment is not currently feasible. Selling Paul Pogba to partially finance Kane’s move? Perhaps, but better said than done.
