Jason Burt is a cut above many calling themselves reporters these days, and he has contacts with Tottenham. Burt, writing for The Telegraph believes that the continued impact of the COVID-19 crisis will derail all hope of Levy getting top money for England’s captain.
Whilst nobody in their right mind would want Kane to quit Spurs, the reality of the situation is Harry is 28 this July and is one of the very few household names in the Premier League not to have won a trophy. As we discussed recently, Sonny is also in the same boat, with the South Korean celebrating his 29th birthday in the same month.
Talk of Kane or indeed anyone else fetching big money this summer is ambitious; given that clubs are still operating on very limited incomes due to lack of crowds in stadiums. It was rumoured recently that ‘up to 10,000 fans’ might be allowed back in soon by the government but as we have discovered, it doesn’t take much for the goalposts to be moved – the future is hugely uncertain.
A source close to the club told me recently that Son had been swerving the opportunity to agree on another extension to his current deal since before Mourinho arrived. Perhaps the result of the Carabao and Europa cups might influence matters? That said, our team that won the Carling Cup soon after disbanded.
