Tottenham striker Harry Kane has opened up on his relationship with Daniel Levy.
The England captain insists Levy has “been great” for him and he will hope that continues this summer in his quest to leave Tottenham for another Premier League side.
Kane knows that isn’t going to sit well with Levy – but does the Tottenham chairman keep a player against his wishes, or should he take the money and run while he can? That is the ultimate posed by Kane in a recent interview.
Levy has the reputation of a shrewd businessman and everyone is expecting him to put up a fight to keep Kane beyond the coming transfer window. Reports suggest he’d want £150m to part ways with the striker, who turned 28 in July.
“He’s been great with me if I’m totally honest,” Kane told Gary Neville on new YouTube channel The Overlap.
“I mean, he’s always rewarded me with contracts. Like obviously I signed maybe a four or five-year deal when I was 21 but I’ve done well so he’s added to that. He’s been great with me.
“He’s been fair with me. He’s never kind of just held me on to a contract and said ‘No, I’ve paid you that. You’re going to stay on that.’
“So, we’ve always had a good relationship.”
Kane hopes that his 16-years of service to Spurs will help his cause when it comes to leaving the club.
He added: “I’m not sure how that conversation will go if I’m honest, but you know what it’s like as players you don’t know what the chairman is thinking.
“I don’t know, I mean he might want to sell me. He might be thinking ‘if I could get 100 million for you, then why not?’
“Do you know what I mean? I’m not going to be worth that for the next two or three years.
“I hope we have a good enough relationship. I’ve given the club… well, I’ve been there 16, 16 years of my life.
“So, I hope that we can have a good honest conversation and see where we are in that aspect.”
