Harry Kane tells Tottenham he wants to leave amid Man United, Man City and Chelsea rumors
Harry Kane reiterated his position that he wanted to leave Tottenham this summer.
The 27-year-old has become frustrated with the club’s inability to compete at the highest level, after seeing his side fall out of action to secure Champions League football for next season.
Spurs have long been reluctant to receive offers for their talisman, but the England captain is hoping they will soften their position after his long service at the club.
State of play for Kane’s future
Daniel Levy will demand huge fees for Kane – who prefers a move to the Premier League – as he is on a long-term deal until 2024.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are potentially viable destinations, although it remains unclear whether a move will materialize.
The aforementioned three Premier League giants have significant financial clout and are looking for offensive signings, even with the coronavirus pandemic causing monetary problems.
In Man Utd’s case, however, they renewed Edinson Cavani’s contract after a good period of form and it is believed they focused on signing a right winger – potentially Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Kane is keen to resolve her situation ahead of the European Championship, but she is likely to growl throughout the summer.
What did Kane actually say?
In a host of recent interviews, Kane has not sought to calm his woes in north London and express his desire to represent a club that is fighting for top honors.
“The individual rewards are great, they are fantastic achievements,” the attacker said . “When I think back to the end of my career, I’m going to come back and take some more. The goal at the moment as a player is to earn team trophies.
“That much [London Footballer of the Year award] it’s great, i want to win the biggest prizes there is to offer as a team, and we don’t quite do that.
