Following his recent outburst, harry has reiterated his stance to leave Tottenham this summer after yet another disappointing campaign.

The England striker has alerted rivals to his availability and desires for a next big career move, one that includes winning all the important trophies.

He has told those in power at the club he wants his transfer situation sorted before the Euros this summer ahead of leading out England on June 13.

Harry Kane has been left frustrated by the club’s incompetence to compete at the highest level and having lost in his third final last month, especially when Spurs have fallen short of securing Champions League football for next season.

Why Kane Wants To Leave Tottenham

Kane is on course for another ultra-prolific campaign having scored 32 goals in all competitions this season.

He’s the joint-top scorer in the league with 22 goals to his name. He also has a remarkable 13 assists – the most in the league.

But for all his club goals, he has no trophies to show for it. He has lost two League Cup finals and the Champions League final in his Spurs career.

For what it’s worth, Spurs are aware of Harry Kane’s predicament and this would not be smooth sailing for the striker, as it will take a lot to let the prolific striker go.

Harry Kane now finds himself in a nightmare position, asking for a transfer has not come as a surprise because that is what he needs and deserves but he has got the timing all wrong.

First, he commits himself to a six-year contract in 2018 and he’s just some months away from completing his first three years of that long-term contract.

Secondly, his transfer fee of 120 million pounds is another barrier for most clubs as the likes of hot prospects in Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe are available and younger than Kane.

If he fails to make his dream move, he’s going to start the season as the most unhappy center forward in the club’s history.

Why It Maybe Difficult For Kane To Leave

Daniel Levy is renowned as a tough negotiator and some ex-Tottenham players know full well just how hard it can be to get out of Tottenham. Players like Luka Modric, Dimitar Berbatov, Gareth Bale, and Darren Bent have all witnessed firsthand that Levy is a tough nut to crack.

Darren bent has shared his experience on how he was left frustrated leaving Tottenham, he said: “It’s hard (to leave). It was hard for me and I was nowhere near the level Harry Kane is to Spurs.

“I’ve told the story before about being on the plane, having to get off the plane, having to wait until Spurs got back from Hong Kong before the deal with Sunderland got done.

“It was so difficult. I never found out what the piece was that was missing, which is why it took so long.
“You are talking about a guy who, if he stays there, is going to be their all-time record goal scorer. He’s one of the greatest goal scorers we’ve ever produced.

“I’ve seen Dimitar Berbatov struggle to get out. I’ve seen Robbie Keane struggle to get out. I’ve seen Luka Modric struggle. I’ve seen Gareth Bale, who was one of the best in the country at the time, have to go for a world-record fee to get out of Spurs.

“If you think Kane is going to be able to leave for £100million to £120million – no chance. “Levy is one of those owners who if they say £140million, he’s not letting him go for any less than £140million.”

Interested Clubs For Kane’s Move

Chelsea, Man City, and Man United are the three Premier League sides who are said to have reached out to Kane’s representatives.
They are the three who could perhaps afford the transfer fees talked about.
But Bent thinks Chelsea would be unlikely because of the rivalry between the clubs.

“I think he’ll have an idea of where he wants to go. I think he’ll know how good he is and if he becomes available roughly what teams would be in for him,” Bent said. “It would be down to preference.

“Harry looks like he loves Spurs, so it won’t be an easy decision for him. He’s scored that many goals, adored by the fans, everyone loves him. To pick up and go – it’s not easy.

Former Liverpool and Leeds striker believes Harry Kane needs to get out of North London now before it’s too late in his career and is drooling at the idea of Kane moving to Liverpool.

“Kane is now doing the job at Spurs that Roberto Firmino has done for Liverpool so well over the past years. And you could argue that, with his goals, Harry does that job even better,” Fowler wrote in his column for the Mirror.

“I believe that any club who has real ambitions of winning the Premier League, would have to look at Kane if he comes onto the market…because to win it, you have to get past City.

“Imagine Liverpool with a Firmino type player, but one who adds goals. They’ve struggled a bit upfront at times this season, and maybe they do need to add an out-and-out center-forward who scores goals.

Tottenham’s Reaction To Kane’s Decision

“No doubt, it would close the gap to City which has opened up this season. I’m not one of those who believes Liverpool needs major surgery. As Klopp said, they probably require only minor adjustments. That would be a positive adjustment.

“No doubt though, Kane would give them a dimension they have lacked…he’d do that to any club. And I think that I, perhaps more than any player, have the right to tell him now is the time to consider that move….before it’s too late.”

The England captain is entering the prime of his career and wants to quit his boyhood club as he wants to lift a silverware. Kane is contracted to Tottenham for another three years and the Premier League club has previously refused to put a price tag on their prized asset, who turns 28 in July, but it is likely he would cost around £150million.

Tottenham has not denied the reports Kane wants out but insists their only focus is on the final two games of the season as they look to secure European football.

A Spurs spokesperson said: “We have a season to finish and we want to finish it as strongly as possible. “That’s all everyone should be focusing on.”
There is now set to be a frenzied scramble for Kane’s signature and Manchester United has been installed as the early favorites to land him. Premier League champions Manchester City are Kane’s number one choice.

Man City has won the title this season and the League Cup and could secure a treble by beating Chelsea in the Champions League final later this month. They would appear to be Kane’s best guarantee of future success although it is understood he would consider moves elsewhere.

Where Will Kane End Up After Tottenham

Man United has long retained an interest in the prolific frontman while Chelsea is expected to launch a big-money bid too this summer.

Kane has made his name as one of the world’s best strikers during his time at Spurs, scoring a sensational 220 goals in 334 appearances for the club.
He has regularly spoken about his desire to win trophies and that is something that has not yet materialized at Tottenham.

During Kane’s time in Spurs’ first team, they have had two Premier League title challenges fall away, lost in the Champions League final, and been beaten in two League Cup finals, including this season’s.

The Tottenham fans should not be angry with the striker should he leave the club, as he deserves a move. The 27-year-old is keen on staying in the Premier League, with Man City his preferred destination while Manchester United is also linked with an interest.

Making a switch to a rival club would normally attract massive criticism from the fans towards the player, but there should be no animosity between Kane and Spurs supporters, as they will only be respecting his wish as he has given his all throughout his time at the club.

If a move away from the club fails, you have to consider Harry Kane as the unluckiest player in football, but it is set to be a long transfer saga.
