Former Tottenham Hotspur star Graham Roberts insists that there is next to no chance of Harry Kane leaving the club in a swap deal with Manchester City.
Kane is said to have asked to leave the club, per Sky Sports News, amid interest from City, Manchester United, and Chelsea.
A report this week, though, claims that City have already tabled the first bid in what is likely to be a long-running summer saga.
Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano claims it could be worth a minimum of £100m to Spurs, while City have also dangled the prospect of including players in a deal; Raheem Sterling and Aymeric Laporte are two of the highest-profile players mentioned.
Roberts, though, doubts that there is any chance of the City players making their way to Spurs, such are their wage demands.
Sterling, for example, is said to earn £300,000-per-week at the Etihad Stadium, per Spotrac, and Roberts feels such a deal is simply too complicated.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, he said: “It’s alright them saying ‘you can have him’, alright, you pay three quarters of his wages and we’ll take them.
“We’ll pay them what we think they’re worth. It’s not going to happen.
“Swap deals are not going to happen.”
