Kane thinking about handing in an official Transfer request
By Bruce Grove -

Harry Kane has told Tottenham that he wants to leave the club after yet another trophyless campaign with the Lilywhites.

The England captain remains one of the world’s best players and he has done more than enough to deserve trophies.

His loyalty to Tottenham his entire career has seen him miss out on team silverware and he has had to deal with receiving just individual honours.

The striker now wants team accolades and doesn’t believe he can win them at Spurs.

The Lilywhites remain adamant that they don’t want to sell him and this means that they will not make it easy for any club to land him.

Daniel Levy is a notoriously hard person to negotiate player sales with and he might frustrate Kane’s suitors.

Todofichajes says the striker has decided to leave and hopes that the club can make it easier for him.

The same report claims that he isn’t ruling out turning in a transfer request to push through a move and he has been thinking about doing just that.

Because of his loyal service to the club, he may have hoped that he could depart the Tottenham Stadium without handing in an official transfer request, however, that is what he may end up having to do.

Kane would be an enormous loss if he leaves and the club would need to replace him with another top striker.

Meant in the nicest way, Harry, but let’s hope you DO look a fool in a few months time as regards Fonseca, but I think most of us suspect that you won’t look like one! The Darlington arena sounds pretty dire. They used to share Feethams with the local cricket club and I watched Worcestershire there once in a limited overs game where a friendly local offered me grapes from his large picnic hamper and then, strawberries, and, later in the day, one of his entourage accompanied me to the bar where he insisted on buying me a beer despite my efforts to try and buy him one! Have met some really nice folk on Durham’s cricket grounds.

When a while ago comparing the net spending between the 2 clubs Spurs and Leicester City unless I am mistaken Harry did not rate the Foxes much but clearly they had a better season than us finishing above us in the league table and convincingly beat Chelski to win the FA Cup!!

Of the current personnel assuming Kane is exiting the club post Euros simply retain the Dane, Rodon, Bergy and Son and sell the rest in the summer!!!!! That includes both Lo Celso and Ndombele!

Regarding PL keepers preferably buy Sam Johnstone, otherwise the Blades Aaron Ramsdale will do!!

We may now be looking at Julen Lopetegui. The source isn’t great, Duncan Castles, but he’s a massive upgrade on Fonseca.

£12.8 mill that is the money of the sale, how much he cost us ? Acquire cheap sell top £s Enic/Levy fundamental rule in their book the rest is history. What amazes me some Spurs fans it is so difficult for them to get that this is basic 2 different view of Tottenham: Enic/Levy view money making business ie selling selling( buy cheap sell with profit as much as possible). Spurs loyal fans view Top football club wants Glory, Trophies, History making loyal Players/Stars.question is how you reconcile both views hence the power and decision making is in the hands of money making group business.

Disappointing as I had high expectations about our serene galloping Gazelle (Foyth), just like I had with both Tom Carroll and Ryan Fredericks respectively. Ouch!! Regarding Harry “neat and tidy” Winks I rated him as a budding future captain for both club and country. Also got that one wrong as I did with eating loads of humble pie about Harry Kane whom I doubted would ever make the grade!! C’est la vie!!

If Kane is ambitious as he says then he needs to do what he’s got to do to get his move (off the pitch). The club buying him will let him know they have offers in. He’d get more support in giving Levy a bloody nose than fans upset he put a transfer request in.

By simply going through the motions before the club’s official announcement post Euros what makes you think that a deal has not already been struck with Man City. I do!!

The club spin is that we have done everything in our powers to keep Kane but regrettably he has rejected the offer!

Watch to see if we buy a few players early in the window, that would be a clue a deal is going to be done or has been done but is being kept secret to stop other clubs upping the price of players if they know Levy has trousered £200 million pounds.

Levy will be hoping Kane scores a good few at the Euros as his price will rise if we had a decent scouting team we’d be making early moves now to avoid being fleeced later

Aston Villa sign Buendia, the Championship’s top chance creator for a club record fee.

Meanwhile, the Spurs FB account posts pictures of Erik Lamela working out and we still don’t have a manager.

I’d be very surprised if we get anywhere near that in the current climate. I don’t think anyone in the world will be moved on this summer for anything over 100. Less even.
Ironically, it’s the players further down the ladder that are going to make the best money in real terms.
Obviously, although you’re getting a lot less for your player than you would have a year and a half ago, the players you re-invest in are equally going to be less expensive. It’s all relative.
But – say for example you manage 100m for Kane who was worth twice that 18 months ago, you’ve sold him for 50% less than he WAS worth pre-lockdow.
Put, say, Moura on the market who was worth maybe 25 pre-covid, and find a buyer today for 20 (which is affordable and therefore more attractive), you’re only getting 20% less than you would have gotten before.
Selling off many cheaper dead wood players and holding on to the bigger fish whose price will deflate more sharply is, in the bigger picture, the more savvy move.

He’s had the chance to win 3 trophies, and he failed to score in all 3 finals.. Half a job john if/when he leaves now…. And Jimmy Greaves will remain our all time GOAT… As much as I adore Harry, I will never look at him the same way if he forces his way to Manchester.

What a b*llocks report. I could’ve wrote that garbage! Kane is thinking about handing in a transfer request is he?!? No sh*t Sherlock. Bruce mate I know you’re named after a train station but you’ve seriously gone off the rails regurgitating pointless non stories like this.

Im just praying Albert Fonseca, or whatever his name is, can somehow charm Harry into giving us another season 😂😩😂 Let’s have it right…we’re f*cked ain’t we 😢

It’s possible he could lose a loyalty bonus but it wouldn’t be huge money and would be dwarfed by a new contract at say Man City.

It also helps keep the transfer fee up if he doesn’t ask for a transfer and interested clubs have to open negotiations. If Harry goes public he makes it easier for the buyers.

Apparently Man United will pay Kane a multimillion-pound signing-on fee to cover any loyalty bonuses Kane, who has three years left on his contract, would forsake if he were to formally hand in a transfer request. Man United hope their compensation package will move them ahead of City and Chelsea in the race.

The “12th man” have been behind the team for over 20 years and seen one puny trophy. Now the “12th man” want enic and Levy gone, anyone with any sense would feel the same. Enough is enough.

The DOF is a good thing, it’s the allowing him to do his job is the worry. Levy can’t seem to delegate and manage accordingly. It’s like you having your boss in your ear all the time when you just need space to do the job.

I too would back Kane whatever he decided to do. He’s one of our own who has given exemplary service to the club but now understandably needs to win silverware. He won’t do this in the toxic environment created by Levy where managers come and go like blossom in the wind. Each and every one of them being blamed for failures beyond their control. Not any more Danny we know just who the problem is at Spurs and it ain’t any of our managers, it’s you. You expect Kane to sell you his soul in return for bringing money into the ground, but you’re not prepared to back him with the players he needs around him to win trophies are you? You’re sussed little bad man.

Let’s hope Levy does the decent thing and acknowledges Kane’s years of amazing service above and beyond for the club and lets him go with our blessing. Somehow, with Levy I doubt it though. LEVY OUT. ENIC OUT.

If Harry does want to leave and tells Levy I hope Daniel shows some class and doesn’t ask him to officially request a transfer in order to cast Harry in a bad light.

We don’t need two months filled with acrimonious bickering and tedious negotiations dragging on till doomsday.

Something simple like both parties have agreed that it is in everyone’s interest, club and player, that Harry is granted his wish.

Part of me wants this to all get far worse. I don’t think Kane can ever be cast in a bad light. Even if he went on strike i’d back him. For me it would just make it even worse for Lieutenant Dan.

It still doesn’t mean that Harry will go on the cheap if no one comes up with the cash then Harry stays. Just look at Man U they know the price for Sancho since April but now started to haggle after agreeing personal terms If Man City want Harry then they know the price and know it’s cash only.

I think Kane is a good position. If he stays, there are no funds to for the significant transfers required to make this club competitive for Europe. If he leaves, it has to happen sooner rather than later, since many of their transfer targets will be gone to other clubs.

Levy is in the bad position. Worse case, Kane stays another year and the lack of investment drives the club lower in the table and his transfer value decreases with one less year on his contract. Kane’s leaving one way or the other, why would Levy allow his transfer value depreciate significantly?
