Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has warned that he will do ‘whatever is right for the club’ with regards to Harry Kane’s future. The England skipper is believed to be angling for a summer move away from north London, with Manchester United and Chelsea among the clubs linked with his services.
Newly-crowned Premier League champions Manchester City have also been credited with an interest in Kane, who has reportedly informed Levy of his preference to seek a new challenge ahead of next season.
The 27-year-old has never attempted to hide his desire to win trophies at the highest level, a dream that has been impossible to achieve during his time with Spurs.
The club have spurned plenty of opportunities to end their long and painful wait for major honours since their last triumph in 2008.
Kane was a member of the side that tasted defeat in the Champions League final two years ago, with the Spurs talisman picking up another loser’s medal in April as Spurs fell to City in the Carabao Cup final.
Guardiola’s side are in need of a top-class striker after the post-season departure of Sergio Aguero, who opted to join Barcelona upon the conclusion of his previous contract.

Meanwhile, Chelsea find themselves in a similar predicament given the failures of Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham to live up to expectations under Thomas Tuchel.
United’s interest in a striker is said to have cooled after Edinson Cavani penned a new one-year deal last month, but it remains to be seen whether they will pass up the opportunity to sign Kane this summer.
Any move for the forward would leave Spurs with a gaping hole at the top of the pitch, with Levy suggesting on Saturday that he could look to keep hold of his prized asset, who remains under contract until 2024.
The controversial 59-year-old told Tottenham’s in-house media team that he will act in the best interests of the club, admitting that it may not be possible to grant Kane’s wish of a summer exit.
“I am never going to talk specifically about an individual player in public,” said Levy.
“All I would say is his frustrations of us not winning is shared by me and I am sure all the fans and the players. Clearly we all want to win.
“I think one of the items that Fabio [Paratici] will have to deal with when he comes in is which players are being retained, which players will be asked to look for other clubs.
“But obviously there is a market out there and what we want, and what somebody else wants, is not always possible to achieve.
“We will do whatever is right for the club.”
Kane played a crucial role for Spurs once again this season, finishing as the Premier League’s top scorer with 23 goals.
He also racked up a total of 14 assists, more than any other player in the division, but was unable to prevent his side from limping to a seventh-placed finish.
