Tottenham club chairman Daniel Levy “simply won’t bend” on the fee for Chelsea linked Harry Kane in the summer window.
Jose Mourinho’s side have struggled for consistency but Kane has still been a regular source of goals, scoring 29 in 42 appearances across all competitions – while also laying on 16 assists.
The 27-year-old is still looking for his first piece of silverware, and it has been suggested he will seek a new challenge if Spurs finish the season empty-handed and outside of the Champions League places
But Crouch thinks Kane will find his exit path blocked if he tries to leave north London this summer, having seen first-hand how stubborn Levy can be when it comes to negotiating transfers.
“Harry Kane might want to play in the Champions League next season, but Daniel Levy simply won’t bend,” the former Tottenham striker told the Daily Mail.
“I know how tough Daniel is when it comes to deals.”
Crouch added: “People talk about Daniel’s reputation but let me put it like this: his one and only agenda is what is best for Tottenham. If I was ever in a position where I owned a football club, I would want Daniel running it because he puts the club’s interests above anything else.
“He doesn’t deal in sentiment and it won’t matter what Harry has done these last seven years. If he really wants to go, it won’t happen unless there is an astronomical fee involved — and that puts a cap on those who could afford him.”
We are a massive club and will be a massive threat next season, but Spurs would not want to sell to a rival unless they offered crazy amounts of money that was too good to turn down.
The club would be a good move for the man, but we believe that this will not happen.
