Chelsea will have to pay £50million more than the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City if they want to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer, reckons former Spurs striker Darren Bent. Sky Sports claim Kane wants to leave Tottenham at the end of this season after yet another trophyless campaign for the north London outfit.
Chelsea, United and City are the three Premier League clubs who have made contact with Kane’s representatives.
The England captain’s preference is to stay in England as he hunts down Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goalscoring record.
However, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would prefer to see the 27-year-old move abroad.
Bent believes Kane will already have in his head the club he will want to join.

But he reckons the rivalry between Chelsea and Tottenham means a move to Stamford Bridge is extremely unlikely, unless the Blues cough up £200m – £50m more than has been reported as the Spurs asking price.
“I think he’ll have an idea of where he wants to go,” Bent told talkSPORT.
“I think he’ll know how good he is and if he becomes available roughly what teams would be in for him. It would be down to preference.
“Harry looks like he loves Spurs, so it won’t be an easy decision for him.

“He’s scored that many goals, adored by the fans, everyone loves him. To pick up and go – it’s not easy.
“One of the clubs who have got that kind of money is Chelsea and they will throw everything at it.
“Do I see Daniel Levy selling to Chelsea? I don’t, unless you add another £50m onto it, £200m.”
Levy is renowned for not letting Spurs’ star players leave the club easily.
But Bent reckons either of the two Manchester clubs could end up winning over the Tottenham chief.
He added: “[I see Levy selling to] potentially to Manchester City or United. Those two have the best opportunity.
“Although Chelsea have the money for it, the hatred between the two football clubs [will stop it].
“I’ve played in that derby. It’s a really good game to play in, but it’s really hostile.
“For Daniel Levy to be seen as making one of their rivals stronger, in terms of a London rival, I can’t see that happening.”
