Kane has been linked to Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Juventus after admitting that he may have to leave Tottenham in his quest to win major honors.
Tottenham imposed a price of £ 150 million on its star striker, which would far outweigh the £ 85.3 million it received for Bale in 2013 – at the time of the record high fees.
The Spurs hadn’t fielded a suitable replacement for Bale, but spent the money from his move to Real Madrid for players like Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela and Paulinho – few of whom worked long-term.
And former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson warned his former club that if Kane were to leave, he had to get the right deal for the 26-year-old – and they had to sign the right players to replace him.
“It’s difficult when a player of this magnitude and quality says he wants to leave a club – it’s like with Gareth Bale,” Robinson told L’Express.
“The deal must be fair. In the past, Spurs president Daniel Levy has made the deals good and has great value for the players.
“The deal should be good for everyone and it should be a very large sum of money that could be reinvested in the team.
“The squad needs to be strengthened. To remove Harry from the equation, you would need to very wisely reinvest the money. Just look at Bale. ”
After Bale’s departure, Tottenham signed Soldado, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli, Vlad Chiriches, Christian Eriksen and Lamela for a total of around £ 106 million.
Of these, only Eriksen and Lamela were long-term successes, with Soldado, Paulinho and Capua all sold for a loss after two seasons and Chadli leaving after three seasons.
Tottenham, who reached the Champions League final last year but was beaten by Liverpool, sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino earlier this season and replaced him with Jose Mourinho.
But they continued to fight, after being knocked out of the Champions League and the FA Cup and finding themselves seven points behind in the race for a place in the top four – without the help of an injury list paralyzing.

And Robinson, who played 175 games with the Spurs between 2004 and 2008 and won 41 caps in England, said the club should reassess whether it was in a similar position by the middle of next season.
He said: “There will be an interesting conversation with the Spurs next season if they are not picky on any front halfway through. “
Robinson also urged the Spurs to sign Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope this summer to replace Frenchman Hugo Lloris.
