According to Football.London, Harry Kane has not formally told the club’s hierarchy that he wants to leave Tottenham this summer.
In a candid interview with Gary Neville last month, Kane admitted that he wants to be competing to win the Premier League and Champions League and that he will have a conversation with Daniel Levy about his future on the back of Tottenham’s recent slide.
The striker also added that he would “never say” that he would definitely leave Spurs or that he will definitely stay at the club until the end of his career.
Tottenham reportedly continue to maintain that the 27-year-old is simply not for sale this summer but Kane’s public admission does turn up the pressure on the club’s hierarchy to show some ambition.
That was perhaps one of the reasons some Spurs fans were left fuming when the talks between the North London club and Antonio Conte collapsed, as many felt that bringing in the Italian would signal the club’s intent to win trophies immediately.
If Tottenham are to be forced into selling Kane this summer, it seems like the striker might have to put in a transfer request to force the club’s hand.
However, according to Football.London, that has not happened yet, with Kane yet to communicate a desire to leave to the club’s hierarchy.
The report does add that the speculation over the England captain’s future is likely to continue, with both Manchester City and Chelsea looking for a new striker.
