Tottenham Hotspur’s stance over Harry Kane has ‘not softened’ and will not change before the end of the summer transfer window.
England captain Kane has made no secret of his desire to leave the north London outfit, and he has used various methods to get his message across.
Kane did an interview with Gary Neville, before a Sunday paper story emerged suggesting he had agreed terms with City already – which left Levy furious. Kane then reported late for Spurs training, only making his return this week – which again did not go down well among the Tottenham hierarchy.
City are refusing to go away, however, and sources close to the Citizens have confirmed that they expect them to return with another bid for Kane. Those close to City believe the club will come in with a bid of £130m – which even if Levy was looking to sell, is still someway short of the widely reported £150m minimum asking price.
As such, sources close to Tottenham have stated that the club’s position has not changed at all in recent days – following Kane’s return to training – and that Levy’s ‘stance has not softened in the slightest’ as the forward remains not for sale ‘at any price’.
The big talking point over the weekend will come in the ‘Harry Kane’ derby on Sunday as Tottenham host Manchester City in their opening league game on Sunday.
New Spurs boss Nuno has admitted he does not yet know whether he will include Kane in their squad on Sunday. Nuno told the pre-match press conference: “He [Kane] joined the group today, he trained, we had a talk. Of course, it is a private conversation, but everything is ok. He is preparing himself.
“We still have the session of Saturday to decide. We have to think and we have Saturday to make the decision.”
