Tottenham striker, Harry Kane can still make a move from Spurs in future windows, Chris Waddle has said. He recently revealed that Kane should get an exit clause written into a contract that prevents his valuation from remaining at £150 million ($206m).
According to him, he wouldn’t be surprised if Harry Kane has sat down with Daniel Levy to discuss how his selling price can be more realistic.
Chris added that the current price is definitely a lot for a 29-year-old, especially one with lots of injuries in the past.
His words, “I wouldn’t be surprised if they sit down with Daniel Levy and say ‘here’s a contract until you’re 34-35’.”
“They pay him well, it’s not about money, Harry’s issue was all about trophies. Would you buy a player for £100m if they did an agreement now and said we’ll agree it for next year that you can go for that? It’s still a heck of a lot of money for a 29-year-old.”
“We don’t know how long Harry will play. He might go to 35-40 or he might stop at 33. He has had a lot of ankle injuries, and they do catch up with you.”
“For Tottenham, I think they’ll sit down for a new contract. If he disagrees with that, that is where he has to put in that he’ll stay for another year and leave for a certain price. He will want that put in a contract.”
“It’s great news for Tottenham and the fans. It was lined up, he wanted to go.”
“I’ve learned in football that you can’t have verbal agreements, it isn’t possible. If he had it in his contract when he signed that he’s allowed to leave for £60-80m, it would have happened. His agent has been naive.”
“So Tottenham have said ‘if Jack Grealish is going for £100m, we want £150m’. That basically priced him out of the market. He will be 29 next summer, he’s a top centre-forward – he scores goals, he creates chances – he’s an ideal fit for Man City when you watch them play.”
“They obviously aren’t going to push the boat out that much and for Tottenham it’s great news. I think Harry just wants to get down to business now and start scoring goals again.”
