Have you spoke to Levy about Knae leaving? No but if he did leave I'm sure it would no doubt be a world record fee.

What is wrong with that?

I think we need to be realistic with Kane. If he carries on like he is, he will be the hottest property in football come the Summer and every top team in the world will want him. There will no doubt be non stop stories and rumours of him leaving because of this. This doesn't mean though that he will leave, and IMO it will all come down to Kane himself, but if they are already believing he will cost £223mil then they had better be prepared to pay a whole lot more even than that.. If Kane wants to stay then I have no doubt we will do everything we can to make that happen.

I am not really worried about Kane leaving, the way he talks about the club and the mangment seems to me that he really believes we are making all the right moves to facilitate his ideal career path. And obviously the fact he loves the club from a fans prospective. The only thing that at all worries me is our wage budget. If he continues to play as he has been and the worlds elite come sniffing and offer him two or three times what we can offer then he may feel differently. He may not, and I don’t want us to be paying our players ridiculous fees, but at some point we are going to have to increase the cap if we want to keep the likes of Kane long term.

A good run in both the prem and CL (pushing for prem title all the way, if not winning it, CL quarters or semis) and maybe getting another trophy in the FA or Carrierbag cups, with the new stadium next season, and I can see him staying for at least another year or maybe more depending on how the stadium move goes for us.

Serious question; can Real Madrid actually afford that sort of fee?

Sure they have money, but they're not backed by an oil rich state

With us moving into one of the best stadiums in Europe next season, I don't care who comes in for him, he will want to stay and play in that stadium. As long as we challenge this season and show we're progressing, he will stay.

They were prepared to pay the 150m for Mbappe last summer. They’ll probably be selling Bale next summer too.

My only worry next summer was if we had some sort of real heartbreak at the end of the season, losing a cup final or just missing out on the league, maybe Kane might make an emotional decision to ensure trophies.

But I think it’s a pretty small possibility. He wants to be where he is, and it makes no financial sense to sell. He’s worth more to us on and off the pitch than any fee Levy could get.

Perez was asked about Kane by a Spanish radio station after the FIFA awards. Not sure what people expect him to say if he's replying to questions.

Fair enough, but we're talking about a fee that could be an extra £100m above and beyond that Mbappe

Plus wages

That is a lot of wedge

"We built a very good friendship," Perez said of his relationship with Levy on Spanish radio station Cadena Cope.

"Every time we win the European Cup, he told me the same thing: 'Thank you for winning the European Cup with my players."'

Why are these clubs prepared to pay these fees at the moment? They may be super-rich but they aren't stupid, the global megastars bring so much wealth off the pitch too. PSG will make so much money out of Neymar and Mbappe. Real have always made money out of the galacticos. Levy has this new money generating stadium coming online, but it's like he'd be only turning on the tap a 1/4 of the way on if he doesn't have Kane's face to use with it.

If Kane goes it will lead to the complete collapse of this team and eventually Poch leaving, he is worth more than £250M, he is priceless and Levy knows it, he is the glue, along with Poch, both of them can never be sold if we wish to have continued success, with our current squad.

If either do get sold it will be another rebuilding project that could take years.

I'm not convinced the relationship is as good as Perez thinks. It does suit us though that if we are resigned to losing a player it's better Madrid than any one else.

I heard from a Chelsea fan that Chelsea have been enquiring about Bale, so maybe they hope to fund Kane with sales of Bale and others

The Sun has been running a campaign for weeks now about Kane going to Real Madrid for certain next summer, it has built up to the point where someone asked Perez if he'd been speaking to us about the deal and his answer was "no and Tottenham would want a world record fee anyway"
The fact that the media spins it another way completely should not mean people shuld get their knickers in a twist.
