Rio Ferdinand makes Harry Kane transfer demand on behalf of Man City and Manchester United

Tottenham have been told to ‘go public’ by former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand, in a bid to let potential suitors know where they stand with Harry Kane.

Speculation over the future of the England captain continues to mount on the back of his Euro 2020 exploits.

Indeed, amid suggestions Manchester City were set to launch a £160million push for his prolific and sought-after services, the Tottenham striker has failed to report back for pre-season training.

United are also long-term admirers of the three-time Premier League golden boot winner.

However, given that they have already spent the majority of their transfer budget on Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane — while City gear up to prioritise Jack Grealish instead — those decisions have left Kane at a crossroads and stand-off with his current employers.

He’s currently halfway through a bumper six-year contract at Tottenham.

However, as silverware continues to elude the England captain, he is thought to have a gentleman’s agreement in place with chairman Daniel Levy — who is renowned as a fierce negotiator in the market.

So Ferdinand has spelled out his demand to Levy and Spurs, amid the interest from City and United.

On the back of Kane’s no-show at training, the ex United star tweeted: “Would love clubs to come out and just say where they are at… LEVY; ‘We want £150m or he stays – simple’. Then everyone is clear!”
