Tottenham Hotspur chairman, Daniel Levy, may be a notoriously hard-nosed businessman, but even he has been forced to subside to the inevitable and permit Harry Kane to agree a £400,000 per week deal to maneuver to reigning Premier League champions, Manchester City.
Ever since making it clear that he saw his future faraway from White Hart Lane, Kane has been respectful to the North London outfit, and thereto end, he’s made life easier from Levy’s point of view.
The disappointment are going to be shared by the chairman and supporters alike, to not mention manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, who only recently, in his opening news conference as Spurs manager, indicated Kane was going nowhere.
It appears, however, that the £160m that it’s believed City are offering is just too good to show down, particularly within the current economic climate.
According to The Sun, Kane and his agent brother, Charlie, were told the news by Levy last week, before the elder Kane’s wedding at the weekend.
“Harry is delighted. He never wanted to go away on bad terms. His value has never been higher,” a source is quoted as saying by The Sun.
“Harry and Charlie got the decision at the top of last week.
“Daniel Levy may be a canny operator though and after Harry’s brilliant efforts and goals at the Euros his value has never been higher.
“By waiting so far , he has probably put another £20million approximately on his tag . A contract with Man City has not yet been signed but this is often Harry’s preference.
“It is additionally preferable from Spurs’ viewpoint. they are doing not want to lose him to a different London side.
“Terms have provisionally been agreed, and it’s a fantastic deal. It’s now just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.
“Harry is within the pomp of his career, and needs to win trophies. this is often an excellent signing for both parties.”
