Harry Kane is reportedly fuming at club chairman Daniel Levy over his reluctance to let him complete a move to Manchester City.
Everyone knows that the richest and the biggest clubs get the best players. One silent secret known only by the initiates is the one that pertains to Tottenham.
It is easier for a camel to pass through the eyes of a needle than for a club to price any of Tottenham' prized assets. Dani Levy is a shrewd businessman that will squeeze out every value from a player leaving his club.
Harry Kane, of all people, should know that, but that knowledge hasn't stopped his fury at Levy playing hardball with his desire to leave.
It is no secret that Harry Kane desires to win a trophy either with the national team or at the club level. If it's with Tottenham, all the better but it seems rather unlikely. The club's near misses has convinced the star player that it would be easier to walk on water than for Spurs to win a title.
The lack of titles has fueled his desire to leave for better opportunities at winning trophies.
Sources close to Kane claim the England captain was able to wangle a promise out of Dani Levy to let him leave should the club fail to win a title.
Harry Kane believes that Levy has broken the promise to let him leave. He believes now is the best time to move to another club as the Spurs have failed to match his ambitions.
Levy has rejected City's offer and is adamant that Kane is not for sale. City's latest offer is worth £125m, but Spurs' minimum valuation is £150m.
With the England captain set on a move to Manchester City before August 31, it is believed that he has taken his agitations a bit too extreme.
Harry Kane failed to report to Pre-season training on August 2, which was interpreted as the 28-year-old downing tools to press home his demand for a move away from Spurs.
However, Kane's inner circle reports it's untrue as the player went on his holiday in Florida and the Bahamas. The striker was thought to take a longer break after participating in the Euros.
They claim the agreement was withdrawn without communicating the same to Kane.
Some fans have reacted to Kane's perceived downing of tools and see him as a turncoat.
Kane understands the fans frustration but wants them to understand the reasons for wanting to leave. He hopes they will appreciate his years of service and remarkable scoring record.
Kane wants to reconcile with the fans but is still intent on leaving to boost his chance of winning trophies.
Kane reiterates that his desire to join Manchester City is about winning trophies and not financially motivated.
The Daily Mail claims that Kane is unlikely to make Wednesday's Europa Conference League play-off tie against Pacos de Ferreira.
