Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Daniel Levy believes the ‘gentleman’s agreement’ was that Harry Kane would only be sold abroad – unless an “amazing” offer was made in the premier league.
City have just over two weeks to complete the deal before the transfer window shuts on Aug. 31, and there are plans to test Spurs’ resolve to keep the England captain.
Talks between the two clubs over Kane have stalled with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy asking for £160million, while City are yet to improve on their initial bid earlier.
The Telegraph claims Levy promised Kane he could leave this summer if Spurs did not win a trophy or finish in the top four of the Premier League last season.
But Tottenham lost in the Carabao Cup final to City and ended the campaign seventh in the table.
However, Levy instead believes the agreement was that Kane would only be sold to a foreign club, unless an ‘amazing’ offer was made by a Premier League rival.
The report says there has been no significant interest from outside England this summer and Kane’s camp believe an “amazing” offer of £125M has been made by Manchester City and Levy is refusing to negotiate.
Levy maintains that no formal offer of that magnitude has been received and, even then, does not consider the figure to be high enough to be acceptable from a top-flight rival.
City are hoping to make one “final push”, according to sources, to try to force Levy to finally negotiate the sale of the club’s prize asset.
The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters, who took to the social media platform to share their thoughts and opinions.
Never negotiate with him for Tottenham’s best player again ✍️— ¹⁰ (@SxrgioSZN) August 18, 2021
