Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levi has given a hint Spurs might sell English International Harry Kane. This is a move to be made in other to lift financial burden.
Spurs Ready to Sell Kane?
As reported, Spurs owe close to a £1billion debt incurred from the refurbishing of their new stadium.
To further prove reports of their financial incapability right, the English side was the first top-flight team to make use of the staff furloughing provision made by the British government.
Based on available stats, they owe a whooping £637million on stadium rebuilding and £85million on transfers. With Kane refusing to show signs of commitment, the Board may likely say their goodbyes to the English man at the end of the season.
Over the years, particularly the era of the Argentine boss Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs Chairman has been spoken against time and again for his lack of spending on player purchases. However, during the just-concluded season, he splashed a good amount of money. He succeeded in bringing the likes of Tanguy Nombele, Ryan Sessegnon and Steven Bergwjin.
Despite all the purchases a few days ago, Harry Kane made mention of his intention to leave if Tottenham fails to win trophies. Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov who later moved to Manchester United has also subtly made some comments suggesting the similarities between Kane’s situation and he’s in 2008.
Manchester United are reportedly interested in securing the services of the English forward. United on their part has constantly painted themselves as a financial powerhouse. They recently did so by making it crystal-clear they would not furlough their staff, during this period of the pandemic.
With the rumours around his exit and the financial situation of the team, Spurs Manager Jose Mourinho can only hope the likes of Dele Alli and Heung Min Son stand up to the occasion when it matters.
