Tottenham: Carlton Palmer makes worrying Harry Kane and Daniel Levy claim

Tottenham: Carlton Palmer makes worrying Harry Kane and Daniel Levy claim -Tottenham Hotspur News

Harry Kane was told by Tottenham chief Daniel Levy that he could leave the club last summer, according to former England defender Carlton Palmer.

The Lowdown: Kane linked with Man City move

The 28-year-old was subject to plenty of scrutiny in last summer’s transfer window after he was heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Manchester City.

It was reported that Pep Guardiola’s side made a stunning £125m bid for the striker, which was sensationally rebuffed by the north London club. The England international revealed his desire to join the Sky Blues and even skipped Spurs training in protest to try and force through the transfer.

The Latest: Palmer’s claim about Kane and Spurs

Palmer has claimed that Kane was informed that he was allowed to leave the club before Tottenham had a last-minute change of heart, scuppering his plans to join Manchester City.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, the 56-year-old proclaimed: “I have it on good authority that Harry Kane was told that he would be allowed to leave the club last summer, so the club have gone back on their word, in particular Levy’s gone back on his word. I wouldn’t be signing a new contract for that club.”

The Verdict: Worrying claim

This claim should come as a big worry for Lilywhites fans. As reported by The Evening Standard, Kane is contemplating whether to push for a move in this summer’s transfer window.

With the news that he was once granted permission to leave the club, the attacker may be thinking that a move away could still possibly be on the table. Therefore, if Man City come back in for him in the coming months, he could very easily decide to replicate his actions of last summer in attempt to seal his Spurs exit.

This would be disastrous for Antonio Conte, especially as Kane has seemingly regained some of his best form, having been awarded man of the match in two of his last three Premier League appearances and improved his scoring return after a slow start to the campaign.

If he does decide to leave, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the manager follow suit – and the same could happen if the Italian departs first.
