He feels the club have not tried to protect him from criticism since his delayed return after a summer break.
Tottenham have maintained an official silence over why Kane reported back a week late.
The striker, 28, believed he had an agreement to extend his holiday following England duty at the Euros.
But, with Spurs saying nothing, it opened him up to stick for effectively refusing to work.
So Kane has become the bad guy in a messy wrangle as he tries to quit with three years left to run on his contract.
The player has spoken with boss Nuno Espirito Santo and Levy to find some common ground, with the likelihood now that he will end up staying.
But Kane reiterated to Levy he still hopes Spurs can strike a deal with City.
So far, Etihad chiefs refuse to increase their valuation of him beyond £125m.
But City remain keen on Kane, despite Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, 36, being keen on a switch to the Prem champs.
The midfielder, 18, looks set to join for an initial £12m but remain at the Ligue 1 club this season.
