Chelsea have absolutely zero chance of buying Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Athletic.
Liam Towey, a correspondent for Chelsea, was answering questions about the Blues and the subject of signing a new striker cropped up.
Tottenham’s talisman was suggested as a likeable option, but the idea was immediately shut down by Towey.
He said: “The mutual hatred between Tottenham and Chelsea makes any Harry Kane deal impossible — Daniel Levy would never sell to Abramovich, and I very much doubt Kane would be prepared to torch his reputation with Spurs fans by moving across London to Stamford Bridge.”
Kane has been central to plenty of transfer stories recently, with his future in North London coming under great scrutiny.
The 27-year-old is still yet to win silverware with Spurs, which is the least a forward of his calibre deserves for his impressive strike rate.
It will apparently cost £150m (Daily Mail) for any club to lure Kane away from Tottenham.
Similar figures will probably be needed to buy Chelsea’s main transfer target, Erling Haaland, from Borussia Dortmund.
Haaland is the most wanted player in world football currently and like Kane, his next destination is still not clear.
A whole host of European heavyweights are jostling for his signature.
Along with Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Barcelona have all been linked with Dortmund’s incredible no.9.
His release clause doesn’t kick in until 2022, so a hefty sum will have to be forked out by whoever wants his services the most.
