“Numerous sources say” Levy Would Want £200million For Harry Kane

By Harry Hotspur -

Miguel Delaney again for the Independent, who would appear to be seeking to appeal to that end of the Spurs fanbase that has convinced itself that a Harry Kane transfer is a deal that can’t be done.

As per this earlier piece, a Harry Kane transfer is immensely achievable whether Daniel Levy answers his phone or not. Delaney would have us believe that the magic number to eventually release Kane is £200million. The truth is that the market decides the price of a footballer.

If you’re selling livestock, one need not sell if the market price is unfavourable – unless one needs quick money. The last time I looked, the England captain didn’t have four legs.

Furthermore, Kane might go for £200million, but that doesn’t mean to say we have come cartoon scenario with Pep pulling up outside the stadium with bags for life, stuffed to the brim with banknotes. Deals can be spread over a long period of time, for example, Moussa Sissoko will take 6 years to pay for.

The talk of Kane remaining at Spurs is, in my considered opinion, wildly optimistic.

The problem is, even if he does stay how do you motivate him? I mean I am sure he would remain professional, but I think naturally he’d probably be at 90% for the foreseeable, and likely spiral downward from there is a rubbish manager comes in and the results nosedive.

I believe that most transfer fees are negotiated over a fixed period of time a la sissoko. I assume if Levy managed to negotiate a large transfer fee for Kane that would involve staggered payments. On that basis I assume any players he bought would be on the same basis so in effect he would have still the full value of the transfer fee

I’d hope Levy’s 200mstarting point (key is starting point) but it’s called a negotiation, and if Enic and Tavistock have no interest in investing in the squad he gets Kane sold so we move on. As we don’t want more sob stories like we had after the World Cup summer.

If we look at eriksen he had his mind made up long before he made the statement and his performances fell away even if stats suggested different. I think to try and keep kane will have the same affect. Why should he try if he is only helping enic and levy. If I were Harry and they did not grant me a move I would kick lamela out of the sick room and install my name above the door.

Is this where the master negotiator that is Levy is left with a very unhappy and expensive player on his hands after the transfer season has closed.

I’d obviously much prefer Kane to stay, as I’m sure we all would. But, as a second prize, if he has to be sold, can we please, for the love of all things great and good, get a decent manager and flipping well back the bloke with transfers for players he actually wants and needs??!!!! (plus sell some cr@p too if possible!)

I appreciate I’m a dreamer who chooses to forget we have Levy at the helm who buys players based on a spreadsheet of potential future returns, rather than the potential to actually win things……

I think Kane is done with Tottenham and it would be a bad idea to try and convince him otherwise

This is an opportunity to rebuild with funds we would not normally have my bigger concern is who would be spending the funds.
