Spurs confirms Kane wants to leave

Tottenham have urged “everyone” to concentrate on finishing the 2020-21 season as well as possible amid rumors Harry Kane has notified the club he wants to leave.

Kane is a product of Spurs’ academy and has grown into one of the world’s best strikers, but over the past two years, the club have obviously struggled to match his drives.

The England captain has constantly been associated with moves away from Tottenham over the years, though those reports have seldomcarried much substance – until now.

Sky Sports News claimed on Monday that Kane has told the club he wants to leave at the end of the summer, with winning trophies on his plan.

Spurs have not won any silverware since the 2007-08 EFL Cup, with Kane a part of the sides that lost the finals of the 2018-19 Champions League to Liverpool and this season’s EFL Cup to Manchester City.

He reemphasized his want to challenge for major trophies after that EFL Cup defeat to Manchester City last month when he was named Premier League Player of the Year at the London Football Awards.

He said:
“Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements. Probably when I look back at the end of my career, I will go over and take in a little bit more.


“The goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. As much as this is great, I want to be winning the biggest prizes that there is to offer as a team, and we are not quite doing that.

“It is bittersweet. I would rather be winning team trophies than this one. It is what it is. I am proud to win it. It means it has been a good season on the pitch, so I have just got to try to continue what I am doing.”

Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea are all thought to be keen on Kane given their separate wishes for reinforcements at the top end of the pitch.

Spurs replied to the rumors with a statement that will likely do little to alleviate the concerns of fans dreading Kane’s exit.

The widely reported statement read:

“Our focus is on finishing the season as strongly as possible. That’s what everyone should be focused on.”

Kane has been in sensational form again this season, his 35 goal involvements (22 goals, 13 assists) in the Premier League being the third-most among Europe’s top five leagues – only Robert Lewandowski (47 – 40 goals, seven assists) and Lionel Messi (39 – 30 goals, nine assists) boast a more solid record in 2020-21.

His overall Premier League score stands at 165, meaning he has a very real opportunity of breaking Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260, an accomplishment that would clearly be aided by him staying in England should he leave Spurs.

Kane’s 22 goals this season have him level with Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot, though he has played two matches fewer than Egyptian forward, who has also netted six penalties to his rival’s four.

Should he beat Salah and the rest, Kane would become only the third player after Shearer and Thierry Henry to win the Golden Boot three times, having also claimed it in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

Despite Kane’s brilliance, Spurs look doubtful to secure a return to the Champions League for 2021-22, as they head into their final two matches of the season five points adrift of Chelsea in fourth.
