Chelsea have been told they must fork out an extra £50m to beat Manchester United to the signing of Harry Kane.
It comes after news broke that the Englishman is determined to leave Tottenham this summer.
After a miserable campaign in the Premier League, which saw Jose Mourinho sacked, Spurs are looking set to miss out on Champions League football yet again.
For Kane, this has been the final straw after telling the club at the start of the season there needs to be real progress.
The striker will turn 28 in the summer and has yet to lift a single trophy in his career and he wants to go somewhere to finally win silverware.
Chelsea and United are in the race, as well as Manchester City, but former Spurs star Darren Bent believes there is no way Daniel Levy will see to a London rival unless there is a huge monetary advantage.
“I think he’ll have an idea of where he wants to go. I think he’ll know how good he is and if he becomes available roughly what teams would be in for him,” Bent said. “It would be down to preference.
“Harry looks like he loves Spurs, so it won’t be an easy decision for him. He’s scored that many goals, adored by the fans, everyone loves him. To pick up and go – it’s not easy.
“One of the clubs who have got that kind of money is Chelsea and they will throw everything at it.

“I see him selling to potentially to Manchester City or United. Those two have the best opportunity.
“Although Chelsea have the money for it, the hatred between the two football club (will stop it).
“I’ve played in that derby. It’s a really good game to play in, but it’s really hostile. For Daniel Levy to be seen as making one of their rivals stronger, I can’t see that happening.”
