    So Harry Kane wants out. Hard to see Levy letting him go with 3 years left on his deal. He doesn't strike me as the type of guy to play up.

    Who could ultimately afford him? By my reckoning, Man Utd, Man City, PSG...maybe Chelsea?

    I agree there's no way he moves.

    If he does I'd love to see him at United. But I imagine it will be City and he's really perfect for them.

    Kane to City does reek of Durant to Golden State.

    I'm not sure City would pay what is needed to get him, as he is 27 now. They tend to buy great young players between 21-25 and Kane doesn't fit that category. United would make more sense, I can see that one for sure.

    He'll be 28 before the next season starts, 3 years on his Spurs deal and he has a questionable ankle.

    I think he'll start next season at Spurs.

    From all reports, he hasn't asked for a move. So maybe he's trying to force a bit of ambition out of Levy by having his agent, who is also his brother, leak the story that he wants to leave. The BBC reporting that the player thinks he has a 'gentlemen's agreement' that he can leave this summer, if true, then you'd really have to question the intelligence of the man.

    All that said, if he wants out, no ifs buts or maybes, not even the most die hard Spurs fan could blame him. Spurs are a mess from the top down, it seems to me.

    And if he goes, I hope it's to City.

    It probably all hinges on how much he wants to act up and push the move through, and the damage he would do to his legacy at Spurs by doing so.

    Obviously different situation, but Ashley Cole is reviled to this day by how he engineered his move to Chelsea. I think he had a lot of time on his contract left but his behaviour made it untenable. So we got William Gallas

    I can't see him doing a Berbatov, no. Like you say, different situation.

    Cracking timing with Spurs playing tonight at home, with a crowd.

    Santos leaving Wolves confirmed. Surely Spurs bound then...he has a good track record, solid appointment?

    Spurs have no interest, from what I hear. Not the style they're after.

    Messi has just become a free agent.

    Quote Originally Posted by Guardian
    Last month Messi agreed in principle to a five-year deal on reduced wages rather than a two-year extension initially discussed. It had been hoped the agreement would keep Barcelona within the boundaries of La Liga’s financial fair play regulations but that has proved impossible.

    Barcelona needed to move players out to renew Messi’s deal and they have not been able to find the solution. The club, whose total debt is about €1,173m, are constrained by the league’s salary cap. Messi has agreed to a 50% pay cut, dropping from about €45m basic, after tax, to closer to €20m.

    The question is where Messi, who was 34 in June, will play next season. He tried to leave Barcelona in August 2020 after a breakdown in his relationship with then president Josep Maria Bartomeu but was forced to stay. Now, when he was keen to continue for longer, he is being made to go.

    I still think he stays, despite the PSG talk. La Liga is far less appealing without him. And La Liga isn't what it was already, from all accounts.

    It does seem amazing that La Liga is basically going to force the best player ever to leave their league. He wants to stay; Barca wants him to stay; La Liga just won't let them. Not hard to imagine they really regret that decision by December.

    The noise of the fans tonight was great to hear again. What a start for Brentford.

    So is United going to be scary good or have Leeds just fallen off?

    United should be scary good but their consistency has been suspect. Leeds have bounced back before. They might not get as high as last year but they should be fine.

    Ronaldo back at Man United after seemingly saying “fuck this” to Juventus only hours ago. Amazing how a deal with City looked nailed on until Ferguson called him today and they’ve missed out on him and Kane now.

    So Newcastle look like they are going to the Saudis. Can understand why their fans are happy, but some of the media fawning of Mohammed bin Salman is an absolute disgrace.

    I won't link the Sun, but you can see it here.
