Harry Kane may lead Tottenham summer exodus
Writing in the Times on Thursday, reporter Gary Jacob has revealed that Harry Kane could leave Tottenham this summer.
The transfer speculation comes after Tottenham lost 7-2 at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Kane – who usually posts post-match reactions on social media – has stayed silent after the Bayern defeat.
For the record, this is the last post Kane uploaded onto Instagram.

Is Kane now speaking through leaks in the press?
In a worrying update for Tottenham fans, the Times report:
Tottenham Hotspur fear that a disillusioned Harry Kane could join the growing list of senior players who want to leave in the summer.
The striker, who will be 27 in July, is ambitious to win trophies and the club fear that he is losing patience.

What’s Harry Kane’s contract situation at Tottenham?
Kane, Tottenham’s captain, is under contract until 2024.
Kane agreed his current six-year contract in June 2018.
It’s also worth noting that Mauricio Pochettino is under contract at Spurs until 2023.
‘Man United & Chelsea have previously shown interest’
If Kane does try to force a summer exit from Tottenham, where could he go?
The Times avoid listing specific suitors for Kane, but readers are told the following:
There would be no shortage of suitors for him, especially if he does well for England at Euro 2020.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid have shown interest in the past.
Could Man United or Chelsea really land Kane? Right now that feels doubtful.
On a separate note, the Times also fail to discuss how much Kane would cost.
Could Kane break the world transfer record? Neymar is the world’s most expensive player following his 222 million euro move from Barcelona to PSG.
Should Harry Kane leave Tottenham?
That issue was discussed on BT Sport this week.
Fears of a Tottenham summer exodus
It’s not only Kane who could leave Tottenham at the end of the season, report the Times:
With Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen in the final 12 months of their contracts and Danny Rose likely to move on, the uncertainty around the club is not likely to go away.
