Kane's Tottenham fate may have been sealed in face-to-face Man City meeting - pundit
Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham may have been decided in Daniel Levy’s reported face-to-face meeting with Man City last Sunday.
So says ex-Premier League shot-stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Spurs’ 1-0 win over City at the weekend.
Levy planned to reiterate that Kane is not for sale when he met with City officials on the day of the match, as per The Telegraph on 14 August.
Football Insider first broke news in April that the 28-year-old striker was “hell bent” on quitting the club this summer.
But his future still hangs in the balance with less than a fortnight of the transfer window remaining.
Kenny claims that Levy will have made it clear that he will not compromise on his stance over Kane in Sunday’s parley in North London.

He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “You’d like to think it would have been sorted there, one way or another.
“He might have said he wants this much and that they are not budging. We know that he isn’t going to make it easy for them.
“If they have had a meeting then, with the way Levy comes across, I’d be surprised if that isn’t what he’s said.
“He’ll have said that Kane is definitely staying or they will have to pay top dollar for him. Simple as. And if they can’t go that far, then it’s over.”
Kane has three years left to run on his Tottenham contract after signing a six-year extension in 2018.
He was the Premier League’s top scorer and assist-maker last term but was left out of the matchday squad for Sunday’s victory over City.
