Levy slaps price tag on Harry Kane: 175 million or he stays
The Tottenham striker is keen to move on but the chairman has made the club's position clear - pay the asking price or the player will stay where he is.
Harry Kane's failure to show up for Monday's training session with Tottenham is a clear message to the club. The player, who hopes to join Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, is waiting for a reply. But Kane's manoeuvre hasn't worried club chairman Daniel Levy. The Daily Mail cite club sources who say that Levy is not prepared to let Kane leave unless an interested club presents an offer of 175 million euros. That is the price which Manchester City will have to pay if they want to take the England international to the Etihad this summer.
For now, Levy appears completely inflexible on Kane's transfer demands. He has stated the price at which he will let the player go and that this the only offer he will listen to. It also suggests that he expects Kane to return to training as soon as possible. Tottenham are close to signing Cristian Romero for 50 million euros from Atalanta and have already brought in Bryan Gil. The club is making an effort to strengthen the squad but Kane remains unconvinced. "Nothing has changed," he told The Mail through club sources.
If Manchester City decide to splash out the 175 million euro asking price for the player, Kane would become the third most expensive signing in football history. City aren't planning on stopping there and and are already reported to be poised to sign another key objective, Jack Grealish for a nine-figure fee. Unlike Kane, Grealish showed up as normal for this morning's session at Aston Villa but hopes to have a meeting with the club in the next few hours to decide what to do next.
