Barry Fry insists Daniel Levy must keep his word if he has struck a gentleman’s agreement with Harry Kane allowing him to leave Tottenham Hotspur.
It has been widely reported this month that Kane has asked to leave Spurs as he bids to win the biggest trophies in the game.
Sky Sports reported the news first and also claimed that there was interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea.
Will Kane leave Spurs?
The London Evening Standard followed that report up by claiming that Kane believes he has an agreement with Levy that will allow him to leave the club this summer should an acceptable bid be tabled.
It remains to be seen if an offer is put forward by any of the interested parties that would satisfy Levy, given that Kane has three years left on his contract and is still operating at his peak.
However, Fry, who is the Director of Football at Peterborough United, insists that the chairman must not renege on the agreement if it does exist.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “If he has got a gentleman’s agreement, you’ve got to keep your word, otherwise it will go round football, ‘don’t believe a word he says’.
“I know he’s not too bothered about what people think of him, Daniel, but I wouldn’t think he’d want that. I think Harry’s made up his mind, he wants to go, but I personally don’t think it’ll be as simple as that.
“He’s a hard bargain-master, Daniel, and he’ll do what’s best for Spurs. If that means keeping Harry for another year, he’ll keep him for another year.”
