Speaking recently on the Ask Ornstein YouTube show, David Ornstein discussed potential summer interest in Tottenham Hotspur centre-forward, Harry Kane.
Even for the incredibly high standards of Kane, so far this season, the £108 million-rated 27-year-old has been in spectacular form over his 21 Premier League appearances, scoring 13 goals and providing 11 assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 7.78 – ranking him not only as Spurs’ best performer but also as the highest-rated player in the entirety of the Premier League.
And, speaking on a recent episode of the Ask Ornstein YouTube show, the titular journalist discussed the future of the Tottenham star, as well as Daniel Levy’s position on the potential sale of the 27-year-old.
He said: “This is the elephant in the room. He’s under contract until 2024, he’s the captain, he’s the heartbeat of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. I think he’s their second-highest goalscorer in history. Yet, he has ambitions – which he has stated on the record – to win trophies in his career, and win multiple major trophies. That doesn’t look like it’s going to happen at Tottenham.
“There are clubs who admire him, the likes of Manchester City have been linked with him, Real Madrid, various others as well. Daniel Levy will be incredibly reluctant to let him go unless it’s for an astronomical fee, and maybe not even [for] that to a rival club.”
Will Kane leave Spurs this summer?
TIF Thoughts on David Ornstein’s comments regarding Harry Kane’s future…
Indeed, as Orsnetin mentions, with Kane previously refusing to rule out an exit from north London, suggesting that he would leave Tottenham if he didn’t think the club were progressing as a team, perhaps Spurs’ current state of affairs should be a cause for concern amongst the Spurs fanbase regarding the potential departure of the striker this summer.
However, with Daniel Levy said to be looking for £100 million for the sale of the 27-year-old, it is questionable how many teams could afford a move for Kane, following the effects of the global pandemic on the financial health of football clubs around the world.
