But if such an insultingly low bid were to be made then Levy would almost certainly veto a transfer once again.
A £60m Chelsea bid would be closer to England striker Kane’s valuation of himself at £100m than to Tottenham’s minimum of £150m.
“I mean he [Daniel Levy] might want to sell me,” Kane told pundit Gary Neville last month. “He might be thinking ‘If I could get £100m for you, then why not?’… do you know what I mean? I’m not going to be worth that for the next two or three years.
“I want to play the Champions League… I want to be playing in the biggest games. I’ve said before, I’d never say that I’d stay at Spurs for the rest of my career. I’d never say that I would leave Spurs.”
A Chelsea approach for Kane would be made even more complicated by the impending arrival of a new sporting director at Tottenham.
