Tottenham Hotspur are set to price Harry Kane out of a summer transfer and it could see Manchester United and Man City make other huge deals.
The England captain’s future is now going to come back under the spotlight after the conclusion of Euro 2020 but whether he is able to leave Spurs is another matter.
Kane made the breakthrough from Tottenham’s academy in 2011 and has scored a total of 221 goals in 336 appearances across all competitions.
He’s won three Premier League Golden Boot awards, including last season’s, while he also won the Playmaker Award having registered the most assists, but he’s yet to lift a single team trophy, despite some incredible campaigns.
It’s this silverware Kane is now on the hunt for, which he believes he will be assured of elsewhere.
However, ex-Spurs ace Jamie O’Hara feels the club will price him out of an exit, leading United and City to covet other top strikers.
He told the talkSPORT Breakfast show: “As much as he might want to leave and as much as teams might come in for him, I think Daniel Levy has set an amount of money, which he’s saying is around £150million and I just don’t see anyone paying that sort of figure, especially at this moment in time.
“Pep has come out and said it’s too much, they can’t afford it.
“I think you’re going to end up seeing teams going for [Romelu] Lukaku or [Erling] Haaland.
“Spurs are going to price Harry Kane out of a deal. They don’t need to sell him because he’s got two or three years left on his contract.
“I can see him staying at Spurs, I can.”
But no matter what course the summer takes, O’Hara doesn’t believe we will see Kane force through a transfer away from north London.
Recent reports claimed there is a feeling from the striker’s England teammates that Kane could refuse to return for pre-season training if Tottenham deny him his desired move.
But O’Hara added: “This is what everyone says, as footballers, if you want to move, people say, ‘kick up a fuss and they will get rid of you in the end’.
“I just can’t see that with Harry Kane, he’s the utmost professional, he’s a leader on and off the pitch. He sets great examples for everyone in the game.
“I just can’t see him being that player who is going to start kicking a fuss and not come into training and not turning up, and downing tools. I just don’t think he’s that guy.
“He will want the move and he will want it to happen but if it doesn’t I still think you’ll see him turning out top performances for Spurs.”
