These are testing times for football fans. Of course, the entire planet is reeling with a dreadful pandemic, but here we naturally discuss football and specifically Tottenham Hotspur football club.
Beyond the game itself being in a state of suspended animation, Harry Kane’s exit is far from a certainty – under any circumstances. So this report from our friends at Corriere dello Sport is difficult to take seriously.
Also, to be considered is the likely collapse in the transfer markets. The Italians cite a probable fee for our 27-year-old of some €200million. Right now, that number feels extravagant, perhaps even to the point of being near ridiculous.
The football press in one breath say that Cristiano Ronaldo might be leaving Juventus, as he’s suddenly become terribly expensive (in light of COVID-19) and in the next that the Old Lady is on the brink of buying arguably one of the most expensive players in Europe.
If Harry Kane is to be sold, one might guess that Levy would like the lad to clear off overseas. As for Juventus as a destination – again – right now, it just feels improbable.
