Football journalist David Ornstein has been sharing his thoughts on the current situation at Tottenham Hotspur regarding Harry Kane and a potential transfer away from the club this summer.
This comes as Ornstein made an appearance on Sky Sports where he spoke about Kane and a potential move to Manchester City during the current summer window.
After it was recently reported that Kane could end up staying at the north London club for the season due to Daniel Levy’s apparent determination to keep hold of the striker, Ornstein had this to say on the situation:
“We don’t think Manchester City are going to come up to the levels of finance that would tempt Daniel Levy to sell.
“Let’s see what happens if Manchester City have another difficult result and whether they return for Kane with something crazy, but I don’t think that’s going to happen as things stand.
“Daniel Levy doesn’t seem to want to engage with them at this point in time, and so of course a lot can change but I think Nuno [Espirito Santo] is going to have Kane at his disposal the way things are looking.”
TIF Thoughts on David Ornstein’s comments on Kane…
Given how Kane ended the 2020/21 Premier League season as Tottenham’s top goalscorer with 23 goals, top assist provider with 14 assists and as their highest-rated player with an overall rating of 7.79/10 for his performances (as per WhoScored), it’s understandable why Levy would be very keen to keep hold of Kane this summer, or at the least make sure they get a significant fee for him.
Are you confident Kane will stay at Spurs this summer?
In our view, it’s fair for Levy to be determined to keep Kane and not budge in his apparent valuation of the striker, especially given how the England captain still has three years left on his contract there, so it’s now down to Manchester City to decide whether or not they would be willing to pay what Levy wants or else they won’t get the striker.
