Spurs Will Let Harry Kane Go For £200 Million To Ease Financial Burden
Manchester United could sign Harry Kane for £200 million this summer, with chairman Daniel Levy ready to sell his star man to stave off financial worries.
Spurs have come under fire during the Covid-19 pandemic for furloughing non playing staff and, unlike Liverpool, haven't reversed their decision despite the fierce criticism.
With the club still owing £637 million on their stadium and a further £83 million on outstanding transfer fees the club are ready to sell Kane.
According to the Mail on Sunday, the chairman is ready to accept a world record fee of £200 million for the striker, with Manchester United the most likely to target the England captain.
The report claims that Kane's off brand message to cancel the rest of the season has infuriated the chairman, adding to Levy's acceptance to sell the team's star man.
Whilst Spurs need the season to continue, in order to claim the rest of the television money that they'll receive if their final games go ahead, Kane said in an Instagram Live with Jamie Redknapp that he would want the season to be cancelled if it can't be completed by the beginning of July.
On the same live Kane was also asked about his future in north London and he admitted that the club's progress was key to whether he stayed or not, confirming his ambition to win titles.
