Daniel Levy ‘would sanction’ £200m Harry Kane transfer to Man United & West Ham target Eric Dier

Daniel Levy ‘green lights’ £200m Harry Kane transfer to Man United

The Mail on Sunday have splashed their back page with an eye-catching transfer story.

It’s claimed that Tottenham are willing to sell striker Harry Kane to Manchester United for 200 million pounds. Readers are told:

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will sanction the departure of Harry Kane to Manchester United for a world-record fee of £200million because of financial worries and exasperation with England’s captain for going off-message during the coronavirus crisis.

Levy has made it clear that Spurs would agree to let Kane leave this summer.


How can anyone believe transfer stories during the Covid-19 crisis?

On March 31, Tottenham followed Newcastle United’s lead in furloughing non-playing employees of the club.

In that decision, Spurs announced 20% pay cuts to 550 employees of the Premier League outfit.

In his lengthy statement explaining the club’s reasoning behind the decision to furlough employees, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy also attacked those who are still peddling transfer stories during this coronavirus pandemic:

Every person on this planet will be affected and in my lifetime I cannot think of something so impactful.

When I read or hear stories about player transfers this summer like nothing has happened, people need to wake up to the enormity of what is happening around us. 

So should Tottenham and Man United fans ignore the Kane story?

On this occasion, some may believe there’s reason to believe Tottenham’s decision to sell Kane.

Crucially, the England striker recently indicated that he’s willing to leave Spurs on social media.

During an Instagram Q&A with Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp, Kane made the following comments:

I’ll always love Spurs, but it’s one of them things. I’ve always said, if I don’t feel like we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there just for the sake of it.

I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve and become better. I want to become a top, top player, so it all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team.

So, it’s not a definite ‘I’m going to stay there forever’, but it’s not a no either.

We’ve been saying that [Spurs can win trophies with this team] for a couple of years now.

We have a fantastic team, but for one reason or another, we haven’t been able to get those trophies.

It’s a hard thing to take as a player, as a person… I want to win in everything I do. When we come close and don’t quite get there, it’s hard to take and it starts to build up.

Of course, I want to win trophies, I want to be doing it sooner rather than later.


West Ham target Eric Dier

Over in the Star on Sunday, it’s claimed that West Ham are interested in signing Eric Dier from Tottenham.

26-year-old Dier is under contract at Spurs until 2021.

The Star reveal that “West Ham are monitoring Eric Dier’s contract situation at Tottenham.”

The assumption is that the Hammers could make a move to sign Dier is Spurs decide he’s surplus to requirements.
