Campbell verdict on Levy green lighting big-money Spurs deal after 'astonishing' source reveal
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy should “bite the bullet” and sanction striker Harry Kane’s mega-money move to Manchester City.
That is according to former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell who, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the 28-year-old has his “heart set” on leaving.
As revealed by Football Insider on Friday (August 13th), City are laying the groundwork for a mega-money deal worth as much as £150million, including add-ons.
A City source told this site the club are lining up an “astonishing” bid for the Spurs striker.
The north west side have raised £60million in player sales and could cash in on Bernardo Silva or Aymeric Laporte to build more funds.
Campbell thinks the deal should be completed as soon as possible for the good of Tottenham’s supporters, who he says “understand” Kane’s stance on leaving.

“It’s tough for Spurs fans to take,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“Most of the fans can understand Harry’s reasons for wanting a move and are not against him.
“I think Harry Kane’s heart is set on leaving.
“This nonsense surrounding him not reporting for training and the club fining him – it only adds fuel to the fire of him leaving.
“I think Daniel Levy is going to have to bite the bullet and make it happen.”
Kane netted 33 goals in 49 games for Tottenham last term.
He won the Premier League’s Golden Boot of the Season award.
The 61-cap England striker has three years left to run on his contract.
New Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo told Sky Sports Kane would be available for their season opener against City.
The striker only returned to training last week and worked individually while quarantining until Thursday.
