Harry Kane asks to leave Tottenham Hotspur amidst Manchester United interest
The 27-year-old has been a consistent performer for Spurs for a number of years, racking up goals and assists. However, his individual brilliance has failed to land him a single major trophy so far.
With the North Londoners set for another rebuild, Kane does not appear to be willing to spend his prime waiting for a turnaround that may never come.
Kane’s admission has seen the likes of United, Manchester City and Chelsea all reach out to the player’s representatives in an effort to sign him. The player for his part is keen to stay in the Premier League.

The striker still has three years to go on his current deal. This does give Tottenham a strong hand when it comes to negotiations. Whether Kane will push the issue further remains to be seen.
Kane was keen to leave last summer but was convinced to stay on after Jose Mourinho took over in 2019/20. With the Portuguese now no more at the club, Spurs find themselves staring at an uncertain future.
What the future holds
With Champions League football set to elude them for another year, Tottenham have a long road ahead. Whether Kane will be the first domino to fall remains to be seen.

According to an earlier report, United are set to make an opening bid for the player this week. Whether the new development will see us change tactics remains to be seen.

By extending Edinson Cavani’s contract, United have secured the veteran’s services for another season. With Anthony Martial already at the club, adding Kane to the mix would make us a formidable outfit.
