- Tottenham’s Harry Kane has informed the club he wants to leave this summer
- The 27-year-old has three years left on his £200,000-a-week deal at Spurs
- Reports claim that the England skipper favours a move to Manchester City

Harry Kane is reportedly eyeing a £100m+ move to Manchester City this summer after informing Tottenham he wants to leave the club.
Sportsmail reported on Monday that star striker Kane has made it known to Spurs that he wishes to leave, with a move preferably completed before the European Championships in the summer.
Now, The Mirror report that Kane’s preference is not only to stay in the Premier League but to move to Pep Guardiola’s City, as they offer the best chances to win trophies at club level.

The report details that City appear to be ‘in the driving seat’ for the 27-year-old, as they target a forward this summer with club legend Sergio Aguero leaving the club after 10 years.
England captain Kane wants Tottenham to consider any offers from City, while Man United are keeping an eye on the situation yet a move to Chelsea appears the least likely option.
City are believed to have made ‘discreet enquiries’ for Kane, with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland also an option to come in as a No 9.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, known to be a hard-nosed negotiator, is very reluctant to sell to a Premier League rival, even more so city rivals Chelsea.

Kane has three years left on his £200,000-a-year deal so Spurs are under no pressure to sell, despite Kane’s insistence that he wants out.
Yet the club are irritated with the timing of yesterday’s news, given the team are still pursuing a European place with two league matches to go.
‘Our focus is on finishing the season as strongly as possible. That’s what everyone should be focused on,’ said the club in a brief statement, as report the Evening Standard.

The latter part of the statement is telling, with many fans already picking up the inference that Spurs believe their most important player should only be focusing on the two remaining games, against Aston Villa and Leicester.
Fans return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the game against Villa on Wednesday, with Kane set to play a part.
Levy is desperate to keep hold of Kane but is more likely to sell to a foreign club, with Real Madrid, PSG and Juventus keeping tabs on 2018 World Cup Golden Boot winner Kane.
