Tottenham’s representatives have received inquiries from Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea, but it remains to be seen whether any of those clubs will offer the £150 million required to convince them to sell Kane.
In 243 Premier League appearances, Kane scored 165 goals and currently sits seventh on the all-time goal-scoring list. Despite his prolific scoring, Kane has never won a major prize.
the most recent setback for Tottenham was losing the Carabao Cup Final to City last month at Wembley.
despite a disappointing campaign in which they were unable to qualify for the Champions League barring an unlikely upset in the final week, Jose Mourinho was fired six days prior to that fixture.
While his individual performances have been lacking, Kane is still one of the best in Europe’s top five leagues this season. He has 22 goals and 13 assists, more than only Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski (40) and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi (39).
A transfer request from Kane hasn’t been submitted, and his current contract is just three years old.
Should Levy sanction his departure, the club will be in a strong negotiating position, but the chairman remains unwilling to lose his prized asset for what would be one of the largest transfer fees in history.
Although he is hopeful the issue can be resolved before the start of Euro 2020 on June 11, Levy is said to have convinced Kane to stay one more season in return for a softer stance next season if he still wanted to move.
Tottenham would prefer Kane to join a club abroad rather than improve a domestic rival, but all of Kane’s suitors are likely to be English.
As a result, Chelsea wouldn’t be put off by the price tag since Erling Haaland’s contract at Dortmund would command a similar price.
Although Levy has had a difficult relationship with Chelsea over previous transfers, this might give an advantage to United or City.
Aston Villa will play their final home match against ENIC on Wednesday once coronavirus restrictions are lifted, and about 10,000 ENIC and Levy supporters will be able to attend.
