An important update on Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has surfaced and is likely to give Nuno Santo and the club a big boost …
What is the word
Eurosport’s Dean Jones gave an in-depth update on the situation in a recent column claiming the 28-year-old striker may be ready to sign a new deal in north London, while suggesting that Manchester City may be away from your interest.
The lines of communication between Chairman Daniel Levy and Kane representatives are believed to remain open for the coming weeks and months in case a new deal can be agreed, with his current £ 200,000-a-week contract expiring in 2024.
Will Kane ever leave Spurs?
There’s also the option for Spurs to include a release clause in each renewal to find common ground for an acceptable rating.
He also claims the Premier League defending champions are unlikely to visit the England international again in the next transfer windows, despite continuing to look for ways to improve the team.
All summer it seemed like City were the only club that really wanted to sign Kane.
It means their position to keep him long term will be strengthened significantly as his dreams of joining a club that can guarantee that silverware is as good as dead and buried for the time being.
Whether Levy will issue a new deal remains to be seen, but the fact that the two parties are ready to have an open dialogue is further encouragement and even the inclusion of a release clause shouldn’t worry people as Spurs will get exactly what they deserve for a player of this caliber.
In fact, the English talisman is an important part of this team, having scored or prepared 54.4% of all 68 league goals last season. In addition, despite the lack of trophies and absolute success, Kane is still a prolific shooter, having scored at least 24 goals in each season since 2014/15.
Once described as a “monster” by his dynamic strike partner Heung-min Son, this new development from Hotspur Way should not only relieve many at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but leave them quite excited about the season ahead.
Spurs have only lost once in the Premier League this season and are among the favorites to win the first UEFA Europa Conference League trophy since 2008 – something that would appease the leading striker ten times.
This is a big step in the right direction for everyone involved.
