Tottenham striker Harry Kane had previously warned Spurs that he would stay with the club so long as his personal ambition was matched.
The England captain has been continually linked with an exit from the north London club throughout the summer having expressed his desire to leave.
Manchester City were installed as instant favourites to secure his signature but a move is yet to come to fruition.
Tottenham and Daniel Levy were fired a stark warning that the striker could see his future elsewhere should his ambition and drive not be matched – an aspect that appears to have happened with Spurs having only finished seventh in the Premier League last season.
Talking in an interview with ESPN in 2019, he said: “I’ve always said as long as the club is moving in the right direction and showing the right ambition, I want to be part of the journey.”
football.london understands that Daniel Levy is not keen on selling Kane this summer, and would only be tempted into a deal if a club can meet his lofty asking price for the striker.
Kane still has three years left to run on his current contract in north London and is fresh off the back of winning another Premier League golden boot, as well as leading England to the Euro 2020 final.
It is certainly tough to say that the striker’s ambition has been matched with Spurs. The club have dropped off dramatically in the league since their three consecutive top-four finishes between 2016 and 2018.
Their wait for silverware also continues having not lifted a trophy since the 2008 League Cup, whilst they have been runners-up in four finals since including in the 2019 Champions League.
