Graham Roberts insists there is next to no chance of Harry Kane leaving the club purely because of the sheer enormity of the funds involved.
According to Sky Sports, Kane has asked to leave the club this summer.
That has reportedly led to interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea.
Will Kane leave Spurs this summer?
But Roberts is doubtful that any club can truly afford to do a deal to sign the England captain, who is preparing to lead his country into Euro 2020 this summer.
Roberts insists that any deal would cost £150m in terms of a transfer fee, and he believes that there would have to be a further £150m, minimum, spent on his wages.
That equates to at least £300m, and Roberts does not believe that either City or United will be able to afford such a package.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “I don’t think he can go anywhere. He’s got three years on his contract. If you can name a club that’s going to pay £150m, because that’s the minimum the club will accept. Plus whatever Harry Kane’s wages are going to be.
“If they’ve bought you for the highest money, then Harry Kane’s going to want the largest wage. So you’re talking another £150m or £200m.
“So somebody’s got to have £350m in their kitty just for one player. I can’t see it happening, I just cannot see that happening, whether it be Man City, Man United, whoever.”
Kane enjoyed a phenomenal season, winning the Golden Boot and the league’s Playmaker Award, having scored 23 goals and laid on 14 assists in the top-flight.
