The Tottenham striker’s future remains uncertain with many clubs interested in securing his signature this summer.
City have been heavily linked with a move for the Spurs striker, with Pep Guardiola reportedly making the England International his No.1 summer transfer priority.
Man City are rumoured to be one of the frontrunners for Kane’s signature, and the Premier League champions are thought to have tabled a record-breaking £100 million bid for the Tottenham striker in June.
But Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is reluctant to part ways with Kane this summer and has slapped a staggering £150m price tag on the marksman’s head to fend off potential suitors.
Levy had confirmed there will be activity in the transfer market but also insists the Tottenham hierarchy will do “whatever is right” for the club concerning the future of Kane, who is valued at around £120m.
Levy has also added former Juventus director of football Fabio Paratici to do a similar role at Spurs. The Tottenham’s new managing director of football wants to keep Harry Kane at the club, but says he has not spoken to the forward about his future while he is away on Euro 2020 duty with England.
Speaking in an interview with Gianluca Di Marzio as relayed by Fabrizio Romano, Paratici said: “Keeping him is not just my goal, it’s our goal as a club.
“I can’t wait to watch him play live, I’ve been really lucky in the past years because I’ve watched a lot of top players and strikers, like Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez, Alvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuain, and many more which now I forgot about.
“Right now, he’s one of the best strikers in the world. He’s a complete player, really special. His physique is that of a real number nine, a true poacher, but he also has an incredibly refined technique.
“He is able to shoot with both feet and also provides many assists – very few people notice this, because he scores so many goals.
“He’s a team player, but he’s a finisher at the same time, so really I believe he is among the top three in the world.
“I haven’t heard from him yet because I don’t want to bother the players who are busy at the Euros, it doesn’t seem fair to me. They’re focused on their own goals with their national teams.”
These Tottenham’s new managing director of football’s comment has prompt plenty of Sky Blues to react on social media.
This just shows that Tottenham are resigned to losing Kane this summer.— Kun who? (@ChizziRascal) July 4, 2021
Paratici could easily have said Kane is not for sale at any cost but he didn’t.
It’s all about the money for Levy, they need it for the rebuild of the team.
Expected. He was never going to say Kane wants to leave and we are trying to get close to £150m for him.— Oddas (@CucoMagico) July 4, 2021
It doesn't mean anything….— Alex 🍌 (@Alex8Mcfc) July 4, 2021
But I need Kane to make a statement after the Euros. Only way he's welcome to my club. Wanna join? Tell Spurs you want out & don't drag this too long.
If we want drama let's go for Haaland
So what we doing then, silva signed for Leipzig and lukaku said he’s staying?— tax evader (@onemilli19) July 4, 2021
Enough is enough now Delapinho is >>>>. Get us Super Jack— The Main Culprit 😎🇿🇦 (@aviwe_m16) July 4, 2021
At this point if we can’t get this guy for 120 max. I’m fine playing without a striker for the season. Put Jesus and Torres up to the test. We will wait for Haaland then. Can’t let it drag out for too long. Pre season is coming up— Ralphiello (@ralphyz89) July 5, 2021
Kane, who is finding his scoring touch at Euro 2020, has scored in both of England’s last two matches as they prepare for a European Championship semi-final against Denmark on Wednesday night.
