Tottenham's Harry Kane too expensive for Juventus at £250m - Marotta
From ESPN - February 14, 2018

Juventus' general manager Beppe Marotta says they cannot afford Harry Kane, amid reports in Spain that the Bianconeri were set to bid 250 million.

Don Balon claimed that Juventus had tabled a world record bid for Kane, who scored as Tottenham Hotspur fought back to draw their round-of-16 tie with Juve 2-2 on Tuesday night, but Marotta dismissed it as fantasy.

"There's not one Italian club who, as things stand today, could afford to buy Harry Kane," Marotta told Italy's Mediaset television. "He's a phenomenal player, but Italian clubs cannot compete with foreign rivals at such figures."

Juve spent a club record 90m to sign Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli 18 months ago, while AC Milan committed around 230m to bring in 11 new players in the summer, but spending 250m on a single player appears to be beyond the budgets of Italian clubs.
