Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has developed a reputation over the years as a tough, difficult but masterful negotiator in football. Although Tottenham haven’t won a trophy since 2008, the club has steadily improved under his stewardship and they now have what is widely regarded as the best stadium in the Premier League, as well as a state-of-the-art stadium.
That world-class stadium cost around £1billion to build and has to be paid for, meaning the importance of securing Champions League football on a regular basis is not wasted on anyone associated with the club.
However, since Tottenham moved into their new stadium, they have spent one season in the Europa League and one season in the European Conference League, which has hurt their budget in the transfer market.

Their most valuable asset during that period, Harry Kane, attempted to leave the club, stating that he preferred to join Manchester City in 2021, and the player’s frustration with the club’s failure to land big money has only increased over time.
Tottenham have made progress under Levy but they are still a joke to some of their Premier League rivals. The lack of silverware suggests an insider mindset, and there’s a sense that Kane will want some silverware before he retires.
Kane turns 30 in July and, while he is expected to have a few more years of playing at an elite level for club and country, that birthday will represent the beginning of the autumn of his career.
“I don’t like to look too far into the future because a lot can happen in football, but I’m 29 years old, I feel fit and strong, I feel probably the best I’ve ever been in my career. away, so hopefully I have many more years to come,” Kane said last month.
“Playing for England is probably the greatest feeling in football and I want to do it for as long as possible. Of course, as a striker, I want to score in every game. Hopefully a lot more (England goals) but we will. just wait and see.”
Turning 30 will give Kane something to think about. He is now entering the final year of his deal with Tottenham and will have to decide whether he wants to stay in North London or leave to give himself the best possible chance of a trophy.
This summer is also Kane’s most realistic chance of leaving Tottenham, as Levy can either cash in on him now for a substantial fee or face the prospect of losing him on a free transfer, a cardinal sin for a shrewd operator in the summer. in 2023
Will Levy roll the dice and play? He doesn’t usually get what he wants in football, but his hands could be tied if the player really wants to move, which would mean a sale is the best option for all parties involved.
Unsurprisingly, Levy is reluctant to sell Kane to a Premier League rival, preferring a foreign side, but Bayern Munich, who have been heavily linked with him, have recently questioned a potential move.
Michael Diederich, financial director of “Bavaria” Munich, answered the question about Kane. We have to watch our profitability.”
If we look at the European market, Bayern could be undervalued by a move for Kane, Barcelona and Real Madrid are not in contention, a move to Paris Saint-Germain is unfeasible and there are no clubs in Serie A who can afford him. or
Levy may want to sell to a European team, but the Premier League is where the money is. Kane could cost between £80m and £100m this summer and there are only a handful of sides who can pay that.
Fortunately for Erik ten Heg, who has named Kane as his top striker target, Manchester United can afford him.
Kane feels like a United striker and a move to Old Trafford is likely to bring him silverware.
