    They've overlooked the small print. 160M plus significant add-ons for each PL, CL, FAC, LC etc. he wins.

    Spurs will be desperate for it not to leak out that we'll soon have £160m in our pockets as we're trying to partake in a rebuild. I suspect Emirates Marketing Project have been requested to get on board with that and have agreed to it (Emirates Marketing Project are generally very good at keeping things in house anyway).

    Offering over £20m + Lamela for Gil, which is a non priority position right now gave a huge indication that we were about to cash in on a big asset. That coupled with a £40m bid for Romero tells us it is likely to be our biggest asset.

    If £160m is the price then Levy has done very well so fair play to him. As I said just now and earlier I thought Levy would cave in and sell at about £120m.

    Harry has given us the best years of his career. As a club we had a chance of pushing on and cementing ourselves amongst the real top clubs but a mixture of poor decisions from the top and huge overspend on the stadium put paid to that for the time being. Harry was very professional last season after asking to leave and being asked to give another year, that was kept out of the press and nobody can say that the player didn't then put it all in on the pitch for us last season.

    The only thing that I am puzzled about is why this story has come out in the press now. One thing is clear though, it hasn't been leaked by Spurs and Levy, so the 'Levy pulling a blinder' rhetoric is wide of the mark. This has absolutely been leaked from Kane's camp (that is clear from the journalist who broke the story). Levy has pulled a blinder though if it is true that he has achieved £160m for Kane in this market.

    That will be the headline figure I'm sure (including the bonuses).

    Not saying we wont sell kane. For that price we would. Just think your thinking is flawed.

    £20m + lamela + £40m is £60m. We had bigger net spends the last 2 summers.
    The sales of foyth and edwards can cover another position.

    Now you might say covid, but we covered that with a long term loan.

    The reason I’ve said levy has pulled a blinder is exactly that. He said to Kane’s people if they want him here’s the deal…. Do your work
    As mentioned before it’s a depressed market for some players but not for others. People are still paying premiums for pretty things if they have the money

    The key here is we have structured some deals in a way that if the Kane deal doesn’t happen we’re ok
    There has been talk that the Romero deal will be done on the never never. We have signed a keeper on a ping term loan. We’re exploiting the market with the knowledge of more income next season.
    shipping dead wood will top up that money more but that’s subject to sales of course

    Kane for £160m plus other sales gives us a possible war chest of £200m plus
    That’s a lot of quality players we could buy. Some will work abs some won’t of course. And we would only be losing one first team player (all be it the best in the world IMO, but one we’re over reliant on)

    This is all correct, he clearly wants off as well I expect it to get nastier if he doesn’t seem like we are playing ball.

    We’ve set our figure and now it’s up to city to meet that figure with cash / players or he stays and he can’t really blame Spurs/Levy.

    If city want him as badly as they have being telling him whilst tapping him up, they will pay it.

    Yes indeed it is. Other than the second sentence of the last paragraph.

    Even if terms have been substantially agreed already, I really hope this isn't concluded ahead of the season starting. It would be too cruel to see him lining up against us for Emirates Marketing Project in the first game. Of course he wouldn't play for us either, but I'd take that.

    Barca can't afford anyone. They have to get rid of 300-400m€ of wages or risk being put under administration or relegated. It's not even sure any of their free signings will ever play for them.

    We're still paying installments for the signings last summer. We're also still paying installments for the signings from the summer before that. Our cash position was looking pretty horrific pre BoE loan. We then lost £63m in the year to June 2020. I expect we'll make a further loss for the year to June 2021 (probably a bigger one as last year will have no CL money and a whole season of no attendances). The balance of our borrowing of £250m to pay back the £175m BoE loan doesn't even cover the bids we have made + the outstanding payments on our already purchased players.

    Unless our owners are pumping money in (yeah right!) or we're taking on even more debt (hope not as our debt level is already scary) or we're somehow getting the clubs we're buying from to accept some incredible paying on the never-never terms then we don't have the capital to be signing players for the money we are bidding. This is the exact same scenario as when we signed bunch of players and then sold Gareth Bale (I can remember back then some people thinking we were keeping him as well).

    He has never been quick. I agree his body will only get worse from now on but his overall play is exponentially better than it was 5 years ago or even 2 years ago. He is one of the best passers and providers in the world along with being the most deadly finisher along with Lewandowski. For me he is the third best passer in the world behind Messi and De Bruyne.

    Isn’t installments the standard payment method for every club up and down the country, in every country?

    Levy himself has said covid cost us £200m in lost revenue. That has been covered by the £250m long term loan. (The boe loan is moot as it was to cover the covid costs and has been paid back.)
    As for installments. The players we buy will be paid for in installments.

    Easy enough contract stipulation, you get him now, he can't play first game of season.

    Not sure that’s legal is it? Think we’d have to only confirm the transfer after the game or something?

    but pretty sure you can’t sell a player and say he can’t play the first game against us.
