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.”
