Harry Kane will decide his transfer future even if Tottenham chief Daniel Levy insists he won’t sell, says Glenn Hoddle

GLENN HODDLE would not blame Harry Kane if he quits Tottenham — just like he did.

Despite chairman Daniel Levy insisting their star striker will not be sold, an offer of £150million would be extremely hard to resist.

Legend Hoddle left Spurs for Monaco in 1987.

Speaking on his latest podcast, he said: “I don’t think anyone would blame Harry if he moved now, if he said he wanted to win silverware elsewhere and the right offer was there.

“I think he is the one who will make that decision and Spurs will have to get the best deal they can. But it would be a crushing blow.

“Losing a quality player like Kane would be a setback to any club.

“I do not know whether it is in Tottenham’s hands.

“I think it is Harry Kane’s decision at the end of the day, to put his foot down and say he wants to go somewhere else and win trophies.

“There are only a few clubs able to afford him, that’s his problem. There could be a little game of chess.

"If Erling Haaland goes to Manchester City that blocks that, if Kylian Mbappe goes to Real Madrid, maybe there is an opening at Paris Saint-Germain.


“I would not like to see him go to PSG to be honest. I’d prefer him to stay — but I would not blame him if he did look elsewhere.

“In an ideal world, I know Harry loves Tottenham and wants to stay to win trophies.

“If they win the Carabao Cup, does he see that as a key moment in the club’s modern history and say, ‘This is a stepping stone to go and get some success’.”

The lack of Champions League football and no fans has put huge pressure on the club’s finances.

The future of manager Jose Mourinho may also hang on the Wembley final against City on Sunday week.

Hoddle added: “That game is a crossroads. OK, it does not get them into the Champions League, but they get some silverware and that would give everyone a lift and be a stepping stone for Jose to go on from there.

“For many different reasons, maybe for Harry staying, for them to build on something.

“They have got world-class players at the top of the pitch — but it needs a rebuild now.”
