Kane’s comments have come after UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin expressed his fear that the 2019-20 football season is in danger of being lost should the current limbo extend beyond June.
Meanwhile, Kane, whose contract with Tottenham runs till 2024, has fired warning shots saying should the club not improve, he won’t be averse to the idea of moving elsewhere as his aims to win trophies and become a top player.
Tottenham have exited all competitions this season and were eighth when Premier League was suspended amid mounting cases of coronavirus globally.
“I’m an ambitious player, I want to improve and become better. I want to become a top, top player. It’s not a definite: ‘I’m going to stay there forever.’ But it’s not a ‘no’ either,” Kane said.
“I’ll always love Spurs, but it’s one of those things. I’ve always said if I don’t feel like we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there just for the sake of it,” he added.
