According to Sky Sports and the Telegraph, Harry Kane has informed Tottenham Hotspur that he wants to leave the club this summer. (Again.)

The England captain will turn 28 this year, and he’s still yet to win a trophy. Spurs are supposedly “willing” to consider the request.

The two Manchester clubs, as well as Chelsea have apparently already been “in touch” with Kane’s representatives in order to gauge the possibility of a move, though one can’t help but feel that Chelsea have little to no actual chance in this case.

Obviously, Spurs do not want to sell Kane, and as per the Athletic’s report last month, are still confident about keeping him.

But Spurs have also started looking into possible replacements, with Kane hoping that the club reward him for his years of loyalty by allowing him to leave — even if he wants to stay in the Premier League and thus go to a direct top-six rival.

The idea of Kane leaving isn’t new and Spurs had to work hard last year already to persuade him to stay. But with Mourinho gone as well as their chances of Champions League football, Kane has apparently had enough.

With three years remaining on his contract, Spurs will be reportedly asking for at least £150m in return.
