Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane gave a very honest interview about his future to Gary Neville back in May.
Harry Kane, 27, who has been at Tottenham Hotspur since the age of 11, made his first-team debut back in 2011. So far, he’s yet to win a trophy in his career and will not be playing in the Champions League with Spurs for the second successive season.

However, it looks like the striker’s 16-year-old association with the north London club is coming to an end.
According to the latest reports from The Sun, Kane is set to join Manchester City in a record-breaking £160m deal this summer.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was reluctant to sell Kane—his prized asset—especially to a direct Premier League rival this summer.
But he is understood to have finally agreed on to let go of the England international, who has shaken hands on a lucrative £400,000-a-week deal with City, The Sun claims.
"A source told the newspaper: “Obviously Harry was delighted because he never wanted to leave Spurs, his beloved boyhood club, on bad terms.“Daniel Levy is a canny operator though and after Harry’s brilliant efforts and goals at the Euros, his value has never been higher.“By waiting until now, he has probably put another £20million or so on his price tag. A contract with Man City has not yet been signed but this is Harry’s preference.“Terms have provisionally been agreed, and it’s an incredible deal. It’s now just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.“Harry is in the pomp of his career and wants to win trophies.“This is a brilliant signing for both parties.”"
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been on the hunt for a top-quality striker since Sergio Aguero left the club for Barcelona. Guardiola’s top target was Kane and he would be delighted to see City closing in on the England skipper’s signature.
To get their summer’s primary target, the Cityzens will shatter the Premier League record transfer fee, currently held by Manchester United’s World Cup winner Paul Pogba at £89million.
Back in May, Kane suggested that he wanted to leave his boyhood club to win titles and trophies, putting in a transfer request as per The Sun. And he certainly seems to have got what he’s wanted all summer, i.e. a move to the Sky Blues.
