Harry Kane has a transfer ‘”agreement” with Daniel Levy that could prevent him from joining Manchester United when the transfer market reopens, according to a football insider.
While answering questions from fans in a Q&A on Bleacher Report, Dean Jones revealed it is his understanding that the striker would have to give Tottenham a one-year notice period if he wanted to leave for another side in the top division of English football, which could mean his rumoured transfer to the Red Devils ahead of next season is off.
Kane has been heavily linked with a big money move to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team in recent months with the Norweigian boss looking to build a squad capable of challenging for the title in the 2020/21 campaign.
Some reports have even claimed that Old Trafford is the player’s preferred destination should he depart Spurs in the next transfer window.
However, when asked what was going to be happening with the England international this summer, Jones stated that Kane would have to spend another year with the North London outfit before securing a move elsewhere in the Premier League.
“Tottenham chairman Levy does not want to sell Kane to another Prem club ideally, especially now with the chances him getting 200m pounds is not going to happen in this climate”, he said.
“For the first time, Kane is definitely thinking about leaving Spurs and I’m told he has a one-year notice agreement with Levy to make that happen.
“Spurs would waive it if he leaves for a club abroad…Real Madrid basically…but as it stands nobody can afford Harry Kane. So he’ll have to see out the year with Spurs.”
The revelation could mean that the 26-year-old will stay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for another season despite strong suggestions that he is ready to quit eight years after making his debut.
Meanwhile, Gareth Bale has fueled talk of a return to Tottenham after making a major admission over his relationship with his former employers.
