Some Spurs fans have interpreted Harry Kane’s comments about potentially leaving North London as a clear message to chairman Daniel Levy to show more ambition.
Kane admitted in a live interview with former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp on Instagram that he will not continue to stick around at Tottenham if the team isn’t moving in the right direction.
There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the 26-year-old’s future in recent weeks with Manchester United (Evening Standard), Juventus (Tuttosport) and Real Madrid (Diario Madridista) all said to be interested in signing the England captain.
The Daily Star claim that Spurs remain confident of holding onto Kane as they feel no club can meet their valuation of the striker given the financial impact which the coronavirus epidemic is expected to have on the game.
However, some Spurs fans on social media feared that the striker might ask to leave and urged Levy to spend big in the transfer market in order to convince Kane that his future lies in North London:
So just seen the Instagram live interview with Harry. It’s abundantly clear that he wants to win trophies and it’s abundantly clear he is already considered options. Next season really will be the deal breaker on that one I should imagine. #harrykane

The worst part is that there will still be Levy defenders among this fan base when they watch Kane walk out the door

At first I thought oh no, but this is approved by Mourinho. He has told @HKane to say this to put pressure on Levy in buying top quality. Jose´is mastemind of the media. Well done guys. Thank you. Love from a #THFC fan. #COYS https://t.co/6DdaaFTLzP

Harry Kane giving #Spurs and most importantly Daniel Levy, the clearest indication yet that now is the time to match his ambition.
If the club doesn’t, then I certainly wouldn’t begrudge him a move to a club that gauges success on the pitch as opposed to bank balance!

Well Harry Kane has made it clear he wants to see ambition from the Tottenham board or he will consider his own future.
Over to you Mr Levy ✍👍 pic.twitter.com/DRbYmvqFL8

Spurs Web Opinion
I personally don’t think we are at any risk of losing Kane this summer given that he still has quite a long time left on his contract. However, I fear that the striker might put in a transfer request if we don’t improve next season. It is possible that Kane was sending a message to Levy with his answer.
