Barry Fry believes Daniel Levy will not dare allow Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer, amid a report from Sky Sports saying Manchester City have bid £100m.
The England captain, who scored his first goal of Euro 2020 in the historic victory over Germany on Tuesday, has been linked with a move away from north London after telling the club he wants to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League crowns.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have been put on alert after Kane made his intentions clear ahead of last season’s climax, which saw Spurs finish in seventh spot despite the frontman winning the Golden Boot and providing the most assists in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s City reportedly saw a £100million bid rejected by Spurs last month but Peterborough United director of football Fry feels chairman Levy will only allow the 27-year-old to move on if new Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo has replacements lined up.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Fry said: “Daniel Levy wouldn’t dare let Harry Kane go.
“Somebody bid £100million and the club turned it down. Even if someone bid £150million, I don’t think Levy can afford to let Kane go unless he has got people lined up.
“Then, if he gets the money, he can probably bring in three players and that would make the fans a little bit happier. But Daniel is a hard taskmaster and if the deal doesn’t suit Spurs, it doesn’t matter what agreement he has with Harry.
“He’s ruthless and he will tell Harry he has to stay if a deal doesn’t suit the club.”
