Sky Sports reported Monday that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has informed his club of his desire to leave this summer, as the England international hopes to determine his future ahead of next month’s European Championship.
Kane has a contract with the north London club until 2024, which could hinder any possible move by another club to obtain the services of the 27-year-old, whose value is estimated at more than 100 million pounds ($ 141.42 million).
Sky said Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea were in contact with Kane’s representatives.
#THFC are now making enquiries about replacement centre-forwards, in the first indication that the club are willing to consider the feelings of their 27-year-old talisman.

Kane scored 22 goals and scored 13 goals to top the Premier League scorer this season.
Kane is competing for the Golden Boot, a prize he won twice in the past, with Egyptian Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, who also scored 22 goals two games before the end of the “Premier League”.
Last month, Kane expressed his disappointment not to win titles with Tottenham, although the outstanding player continued to win individual awards.
Tottenham missed a chance to win their first titles since 2008, when they lost to Manchester City in the League Cup final last month.
Speculation about Kean’s future has increased after Tottenham, who were top of the league last December, fell into the standings due to a series of disappointing performances that led to the sacking of former coach Jose Mourinho.
Tottenham, sixth-placed with 59 points, has a slim chance to end the season in the semi-finals and qualify for the Champions League next season, but it depends on Chelseas fourth (64 points) and Liverpool fifth (63 points) loss for points.
Tottenham host Aston Villa on Tuesday, before facing Leicester City III on the final day of the season.
