Tottenham striker Harry Kane has given the biggest indication yet that he is ready to leave the Premier League club and says he will control his own future.
Kane is reported to have told Spurs he wants to be sold at the end of the season after becoming frustrated at the lack of progress at the north London club.
The England captain, who is 28 in July, still has three years left on his contract and Spurs have been steadfast in their stance that he is not for sale, which means there could be a stand-off.
Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with a move for the Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer.
Kane says he needs a conversation with chairman Daniel Levy about his future.
“I think it’s definitely a conversation to be had with the club,” Kane told Gary Neville’s YouTube channel The Overlap. “I want to be playing in the biggest games, the biggest moments.”
“Like, this season I’m there watching the Champions League, watching the English teams in there doing amazing. They are the games that I want to be involved in. I want to be in them games.
“So for sure, it’s a moment in my career where I have to kind of reflect and see where I’m at and have a good, honest conversation with the chairman. I hope that we can have that conversation.
“I’m sure that he’ll want to set out the plan of where he sees it but ultimately it’s going to be down to me and how I feel and what’s going to be the best for me and my career.”
Tottenham will miss out on the Champions League for a second consecutive season and could fail to qualify for any European competition as they sit seventh in the Premier League with one game to go.
