According to a report in the last 48 hours, Tottenham aren’t in a hurry to offer Harry Kane a new deal despite interest from Bayern Munich.
The Lowdown: Contrasting claims
The Spurs captain has been the subject of plenty of interest from the German giants in recent weeks, with the Bundesliga champions reportedly confident that they will be able to prise him away from the Premier League as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, even though the England captain still has two years remaining on his existing contract in N17.
Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano claimed on Sunday that Spurs are keen to open talks with the striker over a new deal soon amid attention from Bayern, but after a fresh update, that doesn’t necessarily appear to be the case.
The Latest: Spurs and Kane in no rush
In an article published by 90min on Wednesday which provides an apparent twist in the tale, it’s claimed that Tottenham ‘are not rushing’ to tie down Kane to fresh terms despite hearing of interest from Bayern.
The source stated that, whilst both parties do have a ‘mutual interest’ in opening talks in future, the player and club are ‘happy’ with the current situation and aren’t forcing ‘discussions’.
It’s reported that the England attacker is content at Spurs under Antonio Conte, with the general mood around the building ‘better’ than it was under the leadership of Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Verdict: He’s going nowhere
Given the fact that Kane has just under 24 months left on his contract and is evidently happy with his position at the club, it’s difficult to imagine that any team would now be able to turn his head to the point where he leaves in the foreseeable future.
The 73-cap England international netted 27 times across all competitions for Spurs last season, and he will know just how much of an impact he has under Conte, with 20 of those coming after the Italian replaced Nuno at the helm last November.
Kane has contributed to so much of Tottenham’s success over the years, becoming the second-highest league goalscorer in the club’s history; and given his strong childhood ties with Spurs, he will no doubt want to continue inspiring them out onto the pitch for another while yet.
