Paper Talk: Harry Kane’s record-breaking price tag circulates

Kane Levy TEAMtalk

Daniel Levy has a price in mind for anyone wanting to buy Harry Kane at Tottenham, there could be two more big departures at Arsenal this summer and Man Utd made a big offer for Kingsley Coman, all in the papers.



Potential buyers for Harry Kane will have to put £150m on the table before Daniel Levy will even sit down, according to a report.

The Daily Mail  insist that Tottenham’s stance has always been that Kane is not for sale and that remains the case.

However, there is a price tag on the England man’s head, according to the paper. And suitors would have to stump up a British record transfer fee to have any chance of landing the striker.

Kane is contracted to Spurs until 2024 on a deal worth around £200,000 a week.

Two clubs who could have an interest in the England captain are believed to be Man Utd and Man City. Both could pay the wages of the forward, but with the Covid-19 pandemic hitting income it’s doubtful whether either club could meet the asking price.

It’s also unclear as to why now the paper claim Levy has put a price tag on their talisman. Whether or not they have fielded enquiries for the 13-goal striker is unknown.

However, a transfer away for the Walthamstow-born forward would be hugely unpopular with the fans, who have seen their side slip from the top to sixth in the Premier League this term.
