Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge has defended Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy over his refusal to sell Harry Kane to Manchester City.
The Spurs striker has been linked with City throughout the summer transfer window but a deal appears no closer to completion, with Kane coming on as a second-half substitute in Sunday’s 1-0 win over Wolves.
Reports have suggested that Levy is keen to receive in excess of £150m if he is to allow the England captain to leave the club.
Will Kane leave Tottenham this summer?
It is not clear if City will make such a bid but their offers so far are said to have fallen short of that valuation.
Bridge has subsequently hit out at critics of Levy, who believe that he is standing in Kane’s way as he attempts to get his move.
The Sky journalist believes that Levy is well within his rights to demand the best possible deal for the football club.
He said: “I’ve been a critic of Levy in the past but I think they’re pretty rank, to be honest. He has every right to keep hold of his main asset if he doesn’t deem these values worthy enough.”
City ran riot at the weekend, with Gabriel Jesus up front, as they beat Norwich City 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
