Next club touted as Spurs star doubles down on exit to dash Mourinho plan

Next club touted as Spurs star doubles down on exit to dash Mourinho plan

Tottenham striker Harry Kane feels ‘committed’ to leaving Tottenham in the summer transfer window, according to a report.

Kane has proved the centrepiece of Spurs’ attack for several seasons now, boasting a fantastic goalscoring record.

However, speculation has continually arisen over his future amid the club’s lack of silverware.

Triumph in the Europa League and Carabao Cup this season could change all that, but according to Sport (via Sport Witness), Kane has doubled down on his decision to leave in the summer.

The England captain feels ‘committed’ to finding a new club, regardless of the silverware his side pick up.

As for where his career could take him, Manchester City reportedly have their eye on the 27-year-old.

City are targeting a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland as their top priority to replace Sergio Aguero.

However, they would be willing to move for Kane, who – like Haaland – would likely cost a three-figure fee.

Kane has become boss Jose Mourinho’s driving force to lead Spurs to silverware. As shown in Amazon’s All or Nothing documentary, Mourinho wants the striker to reach the levels enjoyed by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

While Kane has a scoring record to rival the pair, his silverware cabinet is distinctly lacking.

Tottenham have not won a trophy since 2008 and Kane admitted last season that he would not hang around in north London if he felt the club were not matching his ambitions.

In any case, the forward is enjoying another strong season. His brace of goals against Dinamo Zagreb took his tally for the season to 26 goals in all competitions.
