Tottenham Hotspur would not sell striker Harry Kane because they have no intention of letting him leave the club this summer nor to a domestic rival.
Kane, 26, was signed on a six-year contract with Spurs in June 2018.
Around March, he said he would not stay at the north London club “just for the sake of it”, and there are reports chairman Daniel Levy would be open to selling him for about £200m.
Tottenham were one of the first Premier League clubs to furlough staff in response to the coronavirus pandemic, with Levy warning that “people need to wake up to the enormity” of the crisis.
There are suggestions that because of financial worries, Levy would only sanction Kane’s sale if the deal was close to £200m. Thus around the world record: Paris St-Germain paid Barcelona to sign Brazil forward Neymar in 2017.
However, there is uncertainty over the summer transfer market given the present shutdown of football across Europe, with all the major clubs facing a financial headache.
