Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy will not sanction a sale of Harry Kane without the blessings of new manager Nuno Espirito Santo, according to The Telegraph.
Kane was the top scorer in the Premier League last season with 23 goals. He has been linked with a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and has even reportedly asked to leave.
It is easy to see why Kane wants to leave Spurs. He will be 28 this month and is in the prime of his powers. With Spurs looking unlikely to win any major silverware anytime soon, he will be wanting to now join a project where he will be able to win trophies and decorate his CV.
Kane is one of the best strikers in the world and by remaining with Spurs, there is a chance that he will spend his prime years without winning silverware. That is never ideal for any player, especially one which is a generational great.
However, Spurs do need to do all that they can to keep him on their books for at least one more season. Even if Spurs sell Kane, they will not find a replacement easily and may have to make a rushed signing.
There is a good chance that a rushed signing could fail as the technical team of the club won’t have sufficient time to do in-depth research on the player’s attributes, skills and weaknesses.
Spurs are still overly reliant on Kane and Son Heung-Min to produce the goods upfront. They must keep Kane for at least one more season and use that time to identify a suitable replacement.
