10 O’Clocker: Levy Open To Kane Salary Bump In Order To Maintain The Status Quo At Spurs
By Harry Hotspur -

Polite notice: this piece has nothing to do with the music of Mr. Rick Parfitt or Mr. Francis Rossi.

____________________________

We reported this week that a source close to the club told us that Spurs CEO Daniel levy was giving serious consideration to taking Gareth Bale on loan for the remaining year of his Real Madrid contract.

This evening, the suggestion has been made to me by the same source that Daniel Levy is also keen to repel all borders in respect of Harry Kane also. The club is naturally well aware of the external pressures in relation to their key player, all clubs – even THFC – have extensive media awareness.

My understanding now is that Mr. Levy would seek that Spurs look their very best when fans begin to return to the stadium; to put the business’ best foot forward. To this end, the offer of a significant pay rise is being constructed for Kane. Golden handcuffs, if you will.

For me, this sentiment makes a huge amount of sense and almost certainly hints at Levy/the club believing that a fan presence at games will have an influence.

I take a view that at this stage, worry about debt is almost academic… I doubt Mr. Levy would say that out loud privately, let alone in mixed company.

He (Levy)will get it if fans are in(from some but enough now to be uncomfortable) so he maybe starting to pucker a bit. I don’t think he’s got any worries, fans in any meaningful capacity won’t be back at least until it’s been made illegal to go anywhere without the vax. Just in the last 24 hours Hancock etc and the media went on a campaign offensive against people who were enjoying the warm weather on the beach with “Dr” (don’t laugh) Hilary saying people should where a mask when swimming😨😵😵 yes….dead serious….he knew what he was doing. It’s mockery again. They’re pushing it as far as they can. When the “3rd wave” hits (again, no sniggering) it will be all our fault when they go back to house arrest. So Levy should be fine.

As much as the modern day footballer loves the money they also, in most cases want
something more tangible to show for their career. Silverware.

For that reason, one of our own will leave. just like all our best players have done over the last 20 years.

If we are to be believed that a naming rights deal for the stadium is going to happen ‘sooner rather than later’ (Alasdair Gold) then i’m pretty sure that having Kane and Son playing in it would be a necessity. Also adding to the reason Levy wants Bale playing in it too.

I like informed gossip. So does the chief of staff. Makes sense. Pay him what he’s worth and more. Keep the wolves at bay.

Both Kane and Son likely exiting the club is not a pretty sight!

A significant pay rise is irrelevant. What Kane wants is a club capable of winning trophies on a regular basis which sadly ain’t Spurs!!

Who knows if this is true but it strikes me as an elastoplast over a serious bullet wound. Even if HK decides to accept a wage increase which few people decline in any line of work, how does that cure the problem of continuous underinvestment in the playing staff? If I am HK and really want to win honours, am I going to accept an increase in salary which I would get at another club if I was transferred, knowing he will never win anything under Levy. If he does accept an increase and stays, this strikes me as is a fundamental admission of his own lack of ambition because whichever way you dress this up, Levy will never spend the necessary funds to propel us into the top league which HK must know.

Your saying harry staying would be a insult to him loving the fans and the club take a look at yourself in life I have found being loved is more important than my own ego happiness is more important than what money can buy harry will stay because he is a exceptional human and he doesn’t listen to the opinions of people that haven’t got a clue about real class 🤔😘

In that rose tinted world of your maybe.

Hes a footballer, a good one at that. He wants to win silverware. Sadly that won’t be at the entertainment venue.

Harry strikes me as somewhat different to most modern day footballers. Its no secret he wants Greaves record, I think if he even has the slightest inkling that Spurs could win something he’d stay. Players nowadays can have clauses in contracts that say things like “the club will strengthen in xx position”, it wouldn’t surprise me if something like that was insisted on.

I’ve read so many interviews with players who say the hardest thing is uprooting your family, Kane is a bonafide family man. He won’t move if his family won’t go with him (which is more common than people think – look at Aguero, Courtois when he was at Chelsea etc.) and he genuinely loves the club.

I think this could be his “Gerrard Summer” speculation will be heavy but I think he will still be here come September 1st.

I’m a firm believer that good players want to look back at their career and when looking back want to see silverwear, domestic and where possible foreign. The Audi cup doesn’t cut it.

Look at Shearer, as great s goal scorer that he was, he’ll be remembered for not going to Utd and winning a hatful of trophies instead going to his boyhood club and winning naff all.

He, unlike HK has a PL winners medal from Blackburn to give some comfort
