Tottenham star Harry Kane and chairman Daniel Levy disagree on the nature of the gentlemen’s agreement they made last year, according to reports. Kane wants to leave Tottenham and believes he should be granted his wish after a promise from Levy before the start of last season.
Kane told Tottenham earlier this year that he wants to leave the club this summer.
Manchester City are interested in signing the 28-year-old following the departure of the club’s all-time leading goalscorer Sergio Aguero.
City boss Pep Guardiola has recently stated a deal will not happen until Tottenham allow negotiation to begin.
And it appears Levy is adamant he will not be selling his prized asset.

The Telegraph claims Levy promised Kane he could leave this summer if Spurs did not win a trophy or finish in the top four of the Premier League last season.
Tottenham lost in the Carabao Cup final to City and ended the campaign seventh in the table.
However, Levy instead believes the agreement was that Kane would only be sold to a foreign club, unless an ‘amazing’ offer was made by a Premier League rival.
The report says Kane’s representatives believe City have proposed an ‘amazing’ offer of £125million, which would break the record transfer fee spent by an English club just weeks after City spent £100m on Jack Grealish.

However, Levy is still refusing to negotiate and does not believe the £125m bid is enough from a fellow English club.
Kane has been left disappointed at the lack of support he has received by the Spurs hierarchy.
The striker has not travelled to Portugal for Spurs’ Europa Conference League tie against Pacos de Ferreira tonight.
Kane will continue to work on his fitness at Spurs Lodge after only returning to team training on Tuesday.
Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo has maintained throughout the summer that Kane will not be leaving the club.
But he is unsure when he will be available to play.
“He’s better than yesterday and hopefully he’s going to be better tomorrow,” Nuno said.
“That’s how all the players working should be. Improving and working on fitness.
“I cannot answer [when I think Kane will play].
“I can answer that he’s getting better and better, fitter and he will join the group on Friday. Then we’ll see.”
Spurs’ next Premier League match is away at Nuno’s former side Wolves on Sunday.
