Tottenham Hotspur manager Daniel Levy is “more motivated than ever” to prevent Harry Kane from joining Manchester City.
England captain Kane has told Tottenham that he wants to go in the summer transfer window, but the club is not keen on him leaving.
Tottenham manager Daniel Levy is apparently ‘more determined than ever’ to keep Harry Kane at the club as the new season approaches. Manchester City are the frontrunners to capture the star striker, who made his desire to go apparent earlier in the window.
Last season, Kane had another outstanding individual season, finishing as the Premier League’s top scorer and assist provider.
However, his efforts were not matched by the rest of the club, and Spurs finished eighth, failing to win a trophy for the second year in a row.
As a result, the England captain has demanded a summer departure from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as he seeks his first piece of silverware.
With Pep Guardiola in need of a new striker after allowing Sergio Aguero to leave on a free transfer, City have long been the clear frontrunners among Premier League teams.
They were rumored to have made a £100 million bid earlier in the transfer window, but Levy was said to have rejected it outright.
City has since been forced to boost their asking price for Kane, with The Sun stating on Friday that they were willing to give £160 million for him.
Those allegations, according to The Athletic, are inaccurate, with Levy now “more determined than ever” to reject any offers for the striker.
Kane’s price tag will be exorbitant if City make a move this summer, with the England captain’s contract still having three years left on it.
Despite the fact that a fee of £160 million is out of their price range, the article claims that their quest of Kane is not finished.
The Premier League champions are hoping that a cost of around £150 million will be enough to entice Levy to agree to a deal.
While they are still interested in signing Kane, The Athletic reports that senior Spurs figures are certain he will continue to play for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this season.
Even with the sums stated in Friday’s allegations, the London club is said to have a “very poor view” of Kane’s departure.
