“Daniel Levy is in control of that situation though” Pundit reminds Kane that his future is not in his hands
By Bruce Grove -

Paul Robinson has reminded Harry Kane that he is contracted to Tottenham and his future will be decided only if they agree to sell him.

Kane has told Spurs he wants to leave after another trophyless season with the Lilywhites.

He has remained with them his entire career and has been one of Europe’s best players, yet Spurs haven’t won a trophy.

He hoped that would happen this season after they made Jose Mourinho their last manager and bolstered their team.

However, their poor form led to the Portuguese boss being fired before the Carabao Cup final.

They remain managerless, but it seems even a new boss would be unable to convince Kane to stay.

Although he hasn’t handed in a transfer request, he expects the club to grant him his wish to leave.

Former Spurs number one, Robinson says the striker has to know that the club has the right to sell or keep him.

“Kane seems to forget who is in control of this situation,” he told Football Insider.

“I completely understand why he wants to leave and like every other Spurs fan across the world I would wish him all of the best if he was to leave.

“Daniel Levy is in control of that situation though. He has three years left on his contract and he will only leave if somebody pays the money that Daniel Levy wants.

“He will have the best interests of Tottenham at heart and he will know that Kane will leave a massive whole in that team if he leaves. Is £100million enough to fill the hole? I don’t think so. If you buy five players at £20million, they will not be at the quality you need to play European football.

“Kane wants it done before the Euros, well I can tell now you that there’s absolutely no way this is done before the Euros.

“Levy will want the best deal for Spurs and that’s if he is even willing to entertain offers. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kane is still there come pre-season.”

For some reason Robinson is a Levyphile. I think the wee bald cnut must have something on him…

I think you’re probably right…

It’s all much too little and far too late. Levy had his chances to match Harry’s ambition.

Is Robinson a Spurs match day ambassador?

I still believe that it’s done. I think it will come out in the next few days.

Dane Scarlett’s Instagram post was very quickly removed (I imagine the lad got into a heap of trouble with PR team at THFC). By all accounts most former players have spoken highly of the bald one and the “gentleman’s agreements” they’ve had in place with him. I think Harry’s future will be announced long before the Euro’s.

The only spanner might be the mooted return of Poch.

Poch not a chance. Too late, Harry’s made his mind up and nothing is getting in his way. As Sam Goldwyn the Hollywood film producer said, “a verbal contract is not worth the paper it is written on”.

Robinson’s technically correct, Levy is in control. Not that Levy’s fingerprints aren’t all over our current descent into mid-table mediocrity, so the whole sorry saga involving Harry Kane’s apparent disaffection with the club is a shabolic indictment of ENIC’s whole regime and it’s prioritizing of profit over glory.

The noises coming from Paul Robinson over recent weeks fully confirms that he must be a fully paid-up member of the ENIC spin machine. Levy this Levy that fantastic chairman etc, what is he on? Paul, what about one the cup in 22 years? Are you going to praise the regime for that too? You aren’t helping mate…

Of course he is. In theory he could make Harry sit it out like Rose. He signed the contract . He is just starting the poker game with Deadeye Dan.
Who will blink first?

I take the view Harry now wants to leave and keeping him will only cause problems. Harry is not known to be a trouble maker but even the most placid of players can be pushed over the edge. He can simply refuse to play, fain injuries cause trouble in training or as Danny did talk to the press. Let him go dl he owes tottenham nothing you owe him.

Common sense will prevail on both sides. Kane will not want his professional reputation tarnished by pretending to be injured/refusing to play or doing a Danny Rose-after all who wants poor Danny now? That stuff tends to stick around and nobody wants a trouble maker no matter how talented. From Levy’s position now is as good as it gets in terms of ROI (Covid notwithstanding) so if Harry really wants to go he will but Levy will get a good deal for him.

I think because of the huge gap between the statures of Rose and Kane it’s not quite as simple as that. Everyone knows Kane is a balanced, rational individual unlike Rose, or indeed Levy himself for that matter. I think most genuine people would take Kane’s side if there was a falling out and Levy dug his little heels in. There’s certainly zero chance of playing the mental health card with Kane.

No idea whether he will stay or go but there is one thing you absolutely know. If he is ‘forced’ to stay he will give 100% in every game and not cause any trouble. He is still incredibly motivated by goal scoring records and will continue chasing down Greaves, Shearer and Rooney (or just Shearer and Rooney if he goes).

Levy’s in control of the retractable pitch and designing the food menus for next season.

Then we should tape Levy to the pitch and get him to check underneath to see if all is ok. Then of course oops there’s a power cut. Nobody will notice.

He is right to a certain extent but if Harry gets badly injured during the Euros, THFC will foot the recuperation bill & if he’s out for 4, 5, 6 months, he’ll be further down the line with his contract & who knows whether he’ll be the same player when he returns. Will Levy take that chance & potentially lose 100mil?

England would pay his wages if he was injured on International duty, off course Spurs would suffer from his absence and have to find a replacement.
