The future of Tottenham star Harry Kane looks set to dominate the headlines this summer.
The Spurs striker has been strongly linked with a move away from Tottenham, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea among the clubs named as potential suitors for the England captain.
Kane has been linked with leaving the club this summer in order to try and fulfil his ambitions of winning trophies, and it is understood that he would be open to a move if an opportunity came along, although football.london understands that he has not directly told the club that he wants to secure an exit.
However, in an interview with former Manchester United and England defender Gary Neville, Kane has not ruled out leaving Tottenham this summer, admitting that he intends to speak with chairman Daniel Levy about his future.
“I think it’s definitely a conversation to be had with the club,” he said in the interview conducted during a round of golf last week. “Yeah, like you say, 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.
Manchester City have been installed by bookmakers as the favourites in the race for the England captain this summer, but City boss Pep Guardiola was not giving much away as he spoke to the media after the 3-2 defeat against Brighton on Tuesday night.
“Next question. He is a Tottenham Hotspur player, please,” he said, speaking to reporters.
Meanwhile, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not ruled out a move for another striker this summer, despite Edinson Cavani extending his stay at Old Trafford by signing a new one-year deal.
“No, of course I can’t,” he said, when asked if he could rule out signing a striker, having been linked with Kane and Erling Haaland, among other strikers.
“We’re looking to strengthen the squad.
“Of course there’s many, many, many things that you have to consider when you put a squad together. I am not saying that if Edi [Cavani] stays that means someone else in a forward position won’t come in..
Solskjaer was then asked by Sky Sports whether United were interested in signing Kane.
In reply, he said: “I can’t talk about players from other teams.

“I think you know me well enough, and I don’t think that’s very respectful of any team, any players.
“There’s loads of good players out there. I could say [Lionel] Messi is interesting, or [Cristiano] Ronaldo, but I can’t talk about them, you know.’
He then added in his press conference: “I can’t comment on other teams’ players and what’s been speculated and said, so I want to show the respect Tottenham deserve as well to not talk about other teams’ players.’
