Jermaine Jenas has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham this summer if he is able to do so but warned that Daniel Levy will make it extremely difficult for the striker to do so.
It emerged a couple of weeks ago that Spurs had reportedly agreed to sell Kane to Manchester City for £160m but the North Londoners have since dismissed the rumour and maintain that the striker is not for sale.
Meanwhile, it also remains to be seen if City’s £100m pursuit of Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish might impact their ability to land Kane.
While some outlets have claimed that Pep Guardiola’s side will move for the Tottenham man even if they get Grealish, others have suggested that the England captain might prove out of their reach if they shell out £100m on the Villa star.
Jenas admitted that he is not sure how Kane will be in a position to leave given the fact he still has three years left on his contract in North London, with the former Tottenham midfielder insisted that the 28-year-old deserves a move away.
The pundit told The Daily Star prior to the news that Kane failed to report for pre-season training on both Monday and Tuesday (Sky Sports): “If they ever leave, it’s last minute, on the last day, when Daniel Levy has squeezed every last drop out of the deal that he can get.
“And with Harry, he’s got three years left on his deal, and I’m like I don’t know how you’re going to get out here mate.
“None of it makes sense from a business point of view which is where Daniel operates best really. So I think Harry is going to struggle, but if he can he should 100% leave.
“He’s given everything to that football club, it’s time for Harry now, to go and spend the next five years on the world stage playing Champions League football, year in year out, winning trophies winning Premier League titles and scoring goals because he deserves it.”

It appears as if the situation might come down to how much Kane is willing to push for a move. If the striker puts a transfer request in, then Spurs might be forced to soften their transfer stance.
