Kane branded foolish as Tottenham transfer battle with Levy intensifies

Harry Kane’s future has arguably become one of the biggest transfer sagas of the season.

The England captain’s future took another dramatic return as he failed to turn up to training for the second day in a row.

This decision to not report to pre-season duties at Tottenham’s Enfield Training Centre has been brandished as “foolish” by pundit Andy Townsend.

Manchester City are extremely keen on the striker’s services and have already had a bid understood to be in the range of £100million soundly rejected by Spurs.

“I think if Harry is relying on a gentleman’s agreement with someone who is notoriously difficult to look in the eye, apparently, then I think he’s been foolish and a bit naive,” Townsend said to TalkSPORT.

“To do his last contract and rely and trust on a handshake of somebody [Levy] who has the reputation of being the toughest out there to deal with then it’s naive from Harry."

Kane still has three years left of the six-year contract he signed for Spurs in 2018.

There was also no buy-out clause added to the contract, meaning Levy is in a position to demand any transfer fee he desires.

It is believed it would take an astronomical bid of around £160 million to convince Spurs to part with their No.10.

“Harry is at the top of his game and he’s a vastly experienced player," said Townsend.

“How on earth he’s left this to a point where he’s shakes his chairman’s hand and believes it’s enough to get him out then I think that’s really naive on his part and his representatives. That is a bit poor from his side of things.

“If Harry Kane is going to now try and force a situation, he’s going to have to be prepared to go to lengths he wouldn’t have dreamed about.

“I’m not sure Harry Kane has that sort of mind or has it in him to do what Diego Costa did when he wanted to leave Chelsea or when Chelsea wanted to sell him to Atletico Madrid."
