Robinson suggests Kane signing new Tottenham contract as saga to end 'this week'
Paul Robinson has insisted Tottenham need to resolve the Harry Kane saga “this week”.
The former Spurs goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the Lilywhites could miss out on transfer targets if they do not sell the 28-year-old soon.
The Daily Mail (August 17th) report Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is refusing to budge from his £150million asking price despite being accused of broken promises by the England striker.
It is said Kane is concerned the Spurs chairman is refusing to engage in talks with City after a £125million bid.
As revealed by Football Insider, Tottenham have held talks about signing Inter striker Lautaro Martinez in a possible move to replace Kane.
Robinson believes that the Kane saga has “dragged on for far too long”, to the detriment of both parties.

“I don’t think the situation is good for anybody. It needs to be resolved this week,” he told Football Insider’s Ewan Kingsbury.
“It affects the team on the field, it affects the team off the field.
“Martinez is a top player. I’d be very disappointed if Kane was to leave and they missed out on him.
“The situation is leaving a window for other teams to pop in and pinch transfer targets that Spurs may have.
“I just think the whole situation has dragged on far too long. He needs to sign a new contract now and start rebuilding bridges.
“If not, he has to move on and allow Spurs to reinvest the money in the side.
“The longer this goes on, the worse it is for both parties.”
