Harry Kane ‘tells family’ he’s joining Man City
Rio Ferdinand has demanded that Daniel Levy is more transparent about the amount he wants for Harry Kane in an attempt to help get the blockbuster transfer over the line.
The former Manchester United defender has spoken out online as he looks to ramp up the heat on the Tottenham chairman, showing support for Kane who wants to leave the club this month.
Spurs are extremely reluctant to sell their star man and it is thought a fee upwards of £160million will be required to prize Kane away from North London.
Although heavily linked with Manchester City, the former United man clearly want’s Kane to be granted his desired exit.
Ferdinand tweeted last night: “Would love clubs to come out and just say where they are at…. LEVY “we want £150m or he stays – simple” Then everyone is clear!”
The game of transfers and negotiations is like chess, and Levy is notoriously very good at it, but with time running out for a deal to be done, the former England international has demonstrated his frustration.
Kane expressed his desire to leave the club back in May, and Tottenham turned down a £100million bid for the striker from City in June, but the golden boot winner believes he has a ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ with the Spurs chairman.
The Englishman has aspirations to be one of the very best, and his trophy drought at Spurs has led the 28-year-old to seek success away from North London.
Will Tottenham sell Harry Kane? Comment below
This isn’t the first time that Kane has been unsettled, but he gave his side one final chance to deliver, which was unsuccessful, and now he believes he has the right to be sold after holding up his end of the deal.
Any deal for Kane would smash the current £89million Premier League transfer record set by Paul Pogba and United, and would put him alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for the most expensive transfers of all time.
Ferdinand joined United from Leeds in 2002 for £30million, a world-record fee for a defender at the time and a then Premier League record, and wants Levy to honour Kane’s wishes to follow in his path.
The Tottenham striker has always been hailed for his professionalism, but after he refused to turn up for training yesterday it caused a stir, highlighting just how desperate Kane is to leave the club.
We are far from done with this particular transfer saga, and things could get ugly if Levy continues to remain stubborn, but Kane did sign a bumper six-year contract back in 2018, which has played right into Tottenham’s hands.
Spurs are under no obligation to sell, with less than two weeks until the start of the season.
