Daniel Levy Tottenham TEAMtalk

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will block the potential sales of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dele Alli this summer, even if Spurs face financial concerns, according to a report.

Spurs’ short-term future is uncertain due to the club’s poor season and the looming financial pinch of football’s recent shutdown.

Jose Mourinho‘s side are seven points off the Champions League places and the monies associated with qualification for the competition.

What’s more, Spurs took out a £175million Bank of England loan to help them through the crisis.

Striker Kane has already admitted that he could move on if Spurs’ ambition for silverware does not match his own.

However, the Daily Telegraph claims that Levy will do all he can to keep hold of the England skipper in the coming months.

The chairman will not accept bids for the forward, even if the club’s potential financial concerns become a reality.

Likewise, Levy will also turn down bids for Kane’s fellow attacker Son and England midfielder Dele Alli.

Kane will therefore likely stay at Spurs, unless he takes his future into his own hands.

Tottenham’s quest for Champions League football resumes on Friday with a clash against Manchester United.

Spurs can move to within a point of fifth-placed United with victory.

Indeed, Tottenham could qualify for the Champions League in fifth if Manchester City’s European ban is upheld.

City took their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport earlier this month, with a decision to come in July.
