Tottenham are willing to listen to offers for Harry Kane, provided interested sides Man United and Man City stump up a British transfer record price of £150m.
England international is midway through a six-year contract with his boyhood club but he’s yet to win silverware in north London and the striker will reassess his options this summer if Tottenham fail to qualify for the UCL.
Harry has already netted 21 times this term and Jose Mourinho is desperate to keep the striker, as he’s paramount to the Portuguese’s plans of turning the club into title challengers.
However, should Tottenham fail to finish in the top four or win the UEL, they face a second consecutive campaign outside of the UCL at a time when their finances have taken a huge hit.
The club had already accepted a period of financial hardship given the £1billion bill on their new stadium but the absence of fans from stadiums has exacerbated the club’s need to balance the books.
The chance to cash in on the 27-year-old striker would pay for around 15% of the club’s stadium and Tottenham would listen to offers of nearly £150m for the centre-forward. Both Man City and Man United are long-term admirers of the centre-forward, with both teams ready to invest heavily in a striker this summer.
The English striker earns around £200,000-a-week in Tottenham and both Manchester clubs could easily increase his salary to nearly £300,000-a-week.
However, Spurs’ asking price may prove a far bigger stumbling block at a time when clubs are holding onto their pennies and are unable to plan for the future as they could have done in years gone by.
