I don't think Perez said anything out of line. He denied that he'd spoken to DL about Harry, he stated that he was happy with the strikers that RM already had available, and commented that Spurs would be likely to demand top-dollar for Kane. "Signing Harry Kane has not passed through my head." I can't see a problem with that.
The problem I have is that the BBC chose to dress up an innocuous interview in a way that suggested that the transfer process was already underway.
