Tottenham issue statement after Harry Kane transfer story emerges
The story was broken first by Sky Sports, who reported that Kane, having done so last summer, had once again told the club that he wants an exit at the end of the season, as he wishes to challenge for and win major trophies.
Kane, who is enjoying one of his best seasons for Tottenham in 2020/21, has been targeted by the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City as well as our London rivals Chelsea. In fact, the report from Sky Sports claimed that the three clubs had already been in contact with the representatives of the England captain.
Tottenham, for their part, are reluctant to sell Kane but could give in and grant his wishes if an exit is what he desires. It has even been claimed that the 27-year-old wants to stay in the Premier League and wants his future resolved before he leaves for the UEFA Euro 2020 where he will be captaining England.

“We have a season to finish and we want to finish it as strongly as possible. That’s all everyone should be focusing on.”
