Harry Kane who has been with the London club for almost eight years, scoring 228 goals in his 340 appearances has decided that he wants to leave the Spurs at the end of the 20/21 season.
The England and Tottenham Hotspur striker has spoken about his desire to leave Tottenham after another trophy-less season with the North London side. After their loss to Aston Villa at home on matchday 37, things got worse for Spurs as they now find themselves at 59 points, just ahead of Everton on goal difference for a Europa League qualification spot. This made Kane’s decision to leave Spurs much easier as he believes that a player of his caliber should be playing in the Champions League and winning trophies with his club side, although Spurs’ chairman, Daniel Levy, is against the thought of selling a player who remains under contract for three years.

Speaking with Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville regarding his future with Spurs, Kane said, “There is definitely a conversation to be had with the club. It is a moment in my career where I have to kind of reflect and see where I’m at and have a good, honest conversation with the chairman. As players you don’t know what the chairman is thinking. He might want to sell me. He might be thinking, ‘If I could get 100m then why not?’ I’m not going to be worth that for the next two or three years. I don’t want to have come to the end of my career and have any regrets. I want to be the best that I can be. I’ve said before, I’d never say that I’d stay at Spurs for the rest of my career [and] I’d never say that I would leave Spurs”
Where could Harry Kane end up?
Premier League rivals Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea could be teams first in line to sign Harry Kane. With Sergio Aguero leaving Manchester City at the end of the season, Pep Guardiola could really go for a striker like Harry Kane who has been as consistent as Aguero over the years in the Premier League and would be the ideal player to replace him. Kane, when asked which player could help him score more often, said: “De Bruyne for sure. When I watch De Bruyne play he’s a special, special player and some of the balls I see him put in for City are just a striker’s dream if I’m honest.” Rivals Manchester United could also be the club that Kane ends up at despite Cavani’s contract extension, as the Red Devils have shown interest in the British striker for years and could finally seize this moment to seal the deal. Chelsea has three strikers in their team but none of them have been consistent when it comes to scoring goals and Kane is synonymous with consistency in front of goal. Chelsea meanwhile seems to have joined the race and sources say they are willing to offer several players, including Tammy Abraham and Kepa Arrizabalaga, with a player-plus-cash offer for Kane.
A move outside the Premier League may not be on the cards even with both the Spanish giants, Real Madrid and Barcelona looking for a striker, asit seems difficult for both clubs to match his 100mn price tag at this stage and also since it seems like the striker wants to stay at home to break Alan Shearer’s record of most Premier League goals.
