Tottenham Hotspur owner Joe Lewis has reportedly decided that he wants to sell Harry Kane this summer to avoid losing him for free in 2024.
The little-known British billionaire has reportedly made his position clear to chairman Daniel Levy, with the decision set to open the door for Kane’s exit.
Popular Tottenham chairman Levy, who Lewis’s ENIC Group employs to manage Spurs, has been playing hardball with Kane. The Spurs chairman has been unwilling to entertain any interest in his captain despite huge interest from Bayern Munich.
The Bavarians are desperate to sign Kane and have made two huge bids for his services. However, Levy has rejected both offers, despite the danger of losing Kane, who has just one year left on his contract for free.
But now, according to 90min, the Bahamas-based Lewis has made it clear to Levy that it is better to allow Kane to leave now than to leave on a free transfer in 12 months. He has warned his chairman that they must sell the 30-year-old striker this summer if he does not agree to a contract extension.
Levy and Tottenham have made fresh approaches to Kane and promised they would be willing to make him the highest-paid player in the Premier League if he signs a new deal.
But the Englishman wants to leave to win trophies and sees Bayern as his best destination this summer.
