Tottenham boss Daniel Levy will not let Harry Kane leave, even if the club miss out on Champions League qualification.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Spurs are expected to reject offers for Kane in the summer, despite the fact they have taken a financial hit during the pandemic.
Contrary to popular belief, Levy has no intention of selling any of his key players, including the likes of Son Heung-min and Dele Alli.
Although Kane is reportedly reconsidering his future at Tottenham, the chairman is determined to keep a hold of the club’s leading goalscorer. Chief football writer Matt Law notes this means the England international will stay in north London for at least another season.
As it stands, Levy appears to have bought himself some time, as his stance on Kane will likely ward off any potential suitors. The British businessman has already borrowed £175m from the Bank of England to ease some of the pressures they face as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
While Levy has often copped a fair amount of stick from supporters, as he has developed a reputation for penny-pinching over the years, he seems to have turned over a new leaf.
Indeed, Levy has placed a staggering £200m asking price on his head, and it is unlikely any club will be able to cover the costs, given the current climate.
At the moment, Jose Mourinho’s side are currently eighth in the Premier League table, three points away from the top four, and are set to square off with his old club Man United on Friday.
Even though Kane hasn’t played a competitive match since sustaining a hamstring injury against Southampton on New Year’s Day, he is still the top scorer this season.
The 26-year-old has scored 11 goals and created 2 assists in just 20 games for Mourinho’s men so far. Moreover, it is worth pointing out the Lilywhites only won three games in the league whilst he spent time on the sidelines recovering from injury.
If Spurs want to challenge for European football next season, they will need to hold onto their biggest stars in the future.
