Harry Kane could still make a move away from Tottenham in future windows
That is the price that Daniel Levy is said to have been demanding this summer, with Manchester City unable to do business at that mark after already breaking the British transfer record in a £100m deal for Jack Grealish.
Kane could leave the Spurs in future transfer windows
Harry Kane could still make a move away from Tottenham in future windows, says Chris Waddle, but only if he can get an exit clause written into a contract that prevents his valuation from remaining at £150 million. That is the price that Daniel Levy is said to have been demanding this summer, with Manchester City unable to do business at that mark after already breaking the British transfer record in a £100m deal for Jack Grealish. Kane has, as a result, stated that he would be remaining in north London, with Waddle expecting discussions to be held regarding fresh terms for a player that will turn 29 when another market opens for business in 12 months.
Kane’s issue was all about trophies
Former Spurs winger Waddle said when quizzed on whether Kane could get a move in 2022: “I wouldn’t be surprised if they sit down with Daniel Levy and say, ‘here’s a contract until you’re 34-35’. They pay him well; it’s not about money; Harry’s issue was all about trophies. Would you buy a player for £100m if they made an agreement now and said we’ll agree it for next year that you can go for that? It’s still a heck of a lot of money for a 29-year-old. We don’t know how long Harry will play. He might go to 35-40, or he might stop at 33. He has had a lot of ankle injuries, and they do catch up with you.”
“For Tottenham, I think they’ll sit down for a new contract. If he disagrees with that, that is where he has to put in that he’ll stay for another year and leave for a certain price. He will want that put in a contract.” The England captain has remained loyal to Tottenham throughout his senior career to date, with a record that has delivered 221 goals for the club, deserving of greater reward. Spurs, though, are under no pressure to part with a prized asset, regardless of his desire to chase down major honours elsewhere, and Waddle has pointed out that “verbal agreements” will get Kane nowhere for as long he continues to deliver on the field. He added: “It’s great news for Tottenham and the fans. It was lined up; he wanted to go.”
