Speaking on the latest episode of The Done Deal Show, Dean Jones spoke about Spurs’ plan to keep Harry Kane and what has annoyed the striker.
Kane’s future has been the transfer saga of the summer, with a bid being lodged for the striker by Manchester City totalling £100 million back in June, but he remains a Tottenham Hotspur player ahead of the deadline closing next week.
Do you think Harry Kane will be sold this month?
Both Spurs and Man City have been operating without a recognised out-and-out striker this season, with the former playing Heung-min Son and the latter opting for Ferran Torres to lead their respective lines, so they could both benefit from having a fully fit and focused Kane in their starting lineup to achieve their goals this season.
Jones offered his thoughts and verdict on the Kane situation.
“From what I understand, if anyone even comes to Tottenham and mentions Kane’s name, they’re being dismissed, they are literally ignoring it. I’m not sure there are many businesses where you can get away with just ignoring people trying to buy assets from you – maybe you can, I don’t know.
“But that’s the tactic that they are taking right now. So it’ll be interesting, but that is one thing that has annoyed Kane.”
TIF Thoughts on Kane and Spurs’ attempt to keep him…
If Daniel Levy’s way of keeping Kane at Tottenham is by ignoring and dismissing any talk or attempted contact from Man City, then it might not be the worst idea so that he can’t be tempted with any lucrative figures the Premier League champions may put on the table.
It has been clear for the majority of the summer that it will cost Man City close to £150 million if they want to sign Kane and with them only having one senior striker at the club, their hands may be forced later in the window to lodge a huge offer for the England international.
