Whenever the results dip, it’s natural for suggestions to be made about players being bought or sold. Obviously, at Spurs this churn is glacial, but that won’t prevent the speculation. According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has been given a gentle nudge along by the word from the Red Devil’s Tottenham sources …who believe Daniel Levy would need at least £100million for Harry Kane.
Haaland has a €75million release clause, and whilst the Premier League and the Bundesliga aren’t poles apart from each other, Kane would be ideal for any English side, as he would slot right into any team in the division.
Would Levy sell? It sounds unthinkable, but no side in the top-flight has the same financial pressures as Spurs. For all the casual approach of some fans about the debt, the reality is that fans are still not allowed in, and when they do eventually begin to filter back, the numbers and so the revenues will be subdued. Add to this an ageing squad and Levy’s track record for cashing in… Kane’s departure looks inevitable, as opposed to unthinkable.
