Levy Steers Manchester United Away From Spurs Target With Minimum Nine-Figure-Fee Demand
By Harry Hotspur -

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.

I suspect if he really wants to go, Levy will let him. BUT, nobody will have £100m to throw at a 28 year old with a dodgy ankle after a difficult financial year. Even oil money (aka City) – well I just dont think Kane fits the profile to be honest.

Therefore, my prediction is we’ll get another season out of him to give the market time to recover. Thus holding onto him more by luck than judgement.

It’s not in Levy’s gift about what Kane does. When he, Kane, says he wants out that will be it. It’s the modern game. There’s no point holding an unhappy player, who probably will have already agreed his move.
Kane has I assume only stayed out of a sort of misplaced loyalty as every top English club would buy him in a heartbeat and where he would have won silverware appropriate to his ability

Levy will not be able to resist his urge to cash in on an “asset”. I expect either Kane or Son to depart in the summer. The only thing that may pull in the little emperor’s reigns is the prospect of trying to flog inflated season tickets next season whilst the media is full of rumours of him selling to buy.

He tried to keep Bale and Modders, and he’s kept Kane so far… All the star players like Berbs Carrick over the years wanted out… Surely if Kane goes then it’s because he wants to.

If Kane is only worth £100m, I am not sure we need to sell him to re-vamp our side. I am more than happy to donate the £5 we require, i just wont buy the kids a Mcdonalds.

Don’t punish the kids mate! Kane is irreplaceable… If we sell him then he will be wanting out.. If we have to sell him for financial reasons because we’re doing a Leeds then we are in trouble.

And the rest… Kane is valued at 105mil right now.. Baldy wanted 150mil for Tintin the serial snowflake bottle job. He would want that at least for Kane, plus their souls.
