Harry Kane has opened up on his desire to quit Tottenham this summer in a candid chat with Gary Neville, insisting that the club may even be keen to cash in and sell him if they can get £100million.
The England talisman rocked the north London club earlier this month by telling them he wants to leave, and the latest reports have claimed that both Manchester City and Manchester United are willing to offer him £300,000 a week to join.
While Spurs fans are desperate for their star man to stay, Kane has admitted a ‘crossroads moment’ is coming this summer – and even thinks there is a chance Daniel Levy and Co will be happy to let him leave.

‘I don’t know, I mean he might want to sell me,’ Kane said in a conversation with his former England coach Neville for SkyBet’s The Overlap. ‘He might be thinking “If I could get £100m for you, then why not?” Do you know what I mean? I’m not going to be worth that for the next 2 or 3 years.’
When questioned about how he thinks the difficult conversation with Levy will go this summer, Kane was quick to praise the chairman and insists they have always enjoyed a positive relationship.
‘I hope we have a good enough relationship,’ he adds, in the interview filmed last week. ‘I’ve given the club… well, I’ve been there 16 years of my life. So, I hope that we can have a good honest conversation and see where we are at in that aspect.’
At 27, Kane has never shied away from his desire to reach the very top of the game, and it is clear that he still holds very high ambitions.

This season, he has gone toe-to-toe with Mohamed Salah for the Golden Boot, with the pair level on 22 Premier League goals apiece with one match to play.
For Kane, though, that number is not high enough and he sees himself scoring plenty more – wherever he ends up playing next season and beyond.
‘I don’t want to have come to the end of my career and have any regrets,’ he said. ‘So, I want to be the best that I can be. I’ve said before, I’d never say that I’d stay at Spurs for the rest of my career. I’d never say that I would leave Spurs.
‘I still feel like I’ve still got almost another career to play. I’ve got another 7 or 8 years. I’m not rushing anything. I’m not desperate to do anything. I feel like for sure I’ve got so much more to give. I feel like I can be even better than what I’ve been. I can produce better numbers than what I’m producing at the moment.

‘I’m not afraid to say that I want to be the best. I’m not afraid to say I want to try get on the level that Ronaldo and Messi got to. You know, that’s my ultimate goal. That’s my aim, to be winning trophies season in, season out. Scoring 50, 60, 70 goals season in, season out. That’s the standard I want to set myself.’
This season, Spurs dropped out of the race for the top four early and are now scrambling for a European spot heading into the final day of the season.
As it stands, they sit seventh, with a trip to fifth-placed Leicester on the final day of the season this weekend.
Should they finish in their current position, they will be rewarded with a spot in UEFA’s new Conference League competition.
Clearly, though, Kane is aiming to be playing regularly in the latter stages of the Champions League and it is unlikely Europe’s third-tier competition will suffice.
