After Tottenham Hotspur agreed a new contract for star forward Son Heung-min in July, it appears that another key player in Harry Kane is now ‘ready to talk’ as 90min reporter Graeme Bailey backs news out of N17.
The Lowdown: New deal for Kane?
Indeed, with Son now tied down at Tottenham until 2025, the club have also been linked with securing a new deal for superstar forward Kane, despite his heavy links with a move away in the summer.
Manchester City courted the England international, even lodging a £100m bid, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy refused to budge on his £150m valuation of the player.
The Latest: Bailey backs Kane development…
As per Bailey for 90min, Kane is ‘ready to talk’ again about a new deal at Spurs after he swiftly rebuffed the offer of fresh terms just after Euro 2020.
He apparently wants a pay rise of around £500,000 and has a ‘number of demands’ which need to be met before he will sign, but Spurs definitely will not bend to a release clause.
The forward’s entourage have apparently proposed the idea of performance-related clauses but the club have no intention of agreeing, despite being open to offering Kane a new contract.
The Verdict: Interesting weeks ahead…
Given the 28-year-old’s apparent lack of options going forward, with City now rumoured not to be in for him next summer, it appears that Kane’s future could now be more dependent on fresh terms.
He is contracted until the summer of 2024 and it is clear to see why he is looking to strike a contract which could allow him to leave Spurs with less hassle in future.
However, with Levy seemingly holding all the cards, it remains to be seen if the ‘phenomenal’ Kane, as he was called by England manager Gareth Southgate, will get his wish.
