Tottenham Hotspur chairman has slapped a £250 million price tag on striker Harry Kane as he looks to warn off potential suitors for the England captain.
The indifferent start to the season by Spurs has prompted fears that Kane could be tempted to look elsewhere next summer if he wants to win honours, with Tuesday night’s shock defeat to Colchester United in the Carabao Cup meaning that, even this early, the FA Cup represents their own meaningful chance of silverware this campaign.
Kane was rested for that match which saw his side lose out on a penalty shoot-out, although will be back for the league meeting with Southampton at the weekend.
However, to deter the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City from making a bid to sign their most prized asset, Levy has now placed such a price on his head that it would take a world record transfer fee to secure his services.
