Master negotiator Daniel Levy will have the final say on whether Harry Kane leaves Tottenham.
That is according to finance guru and Football Insider columnist Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively after Kane revealed his stance on a potential Spurs exit while away on international duty with England
Quoted via Sky Sports, Kane said: “I’m fully focussed on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.”
His comments come after journalist David Ornstein told Sky Sports that Kane would “like to leave Tottenham.”
Kane signed a six-year deal with Spurs in 2018 worth a reported £200,000 per week.
Maguire asserts that Kane’s value to the club is immeasurable and that the ultimate decision regarding his fate lies with Spurs chairman Levy.
He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “It will all come down to Daniel Levy and what his ambitions are.
“Kane’s on £200,000 per week and he’s had that for three years, he’ll have earned more than £30m in the last three years. He could afford to take a pay cut and still never have to work again once he’s finished his football career.
“So that isn’t an issue. It’s more of a case of how keen Spurs are to sell him.
“They’ve had an okay but unspectacular season. Had it not been for Harry Kane it would have been far worse. So he is worth an awful lot of money to them. Levy is a top negotiator and would only do a deal at the right price.”
Kane made his comments prior to England’s 2-0 win over Albania in which he both scored and laid on an assist for Mason Mount.
For Spurs in 2020-21, Kane has netted 27 goals and a further 17 assists.
