Harry Kane could now be open to extending his contract with Tottenham Hotspur, with fresh talks expected with Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy.
The Lowdown: Kane stays put over summer
Tottenham’s all-time goalscorer Kane was linked with a move away from the club over the summer, with Manchester City seeming the suitors for his signature, but a move never happened and he has returned to action for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
After scoring 23 goals and assisting a further 14 goals last season, Kane led England to the final of the European Championships before delaying his return to training at Spurs.
However, the striker confirmed his desire to remain at the club and news has now emerged about his future at Spurs.
The Latest: Fresh talks looming
According to EuroSport, Kane could still sign a new contract at Tottenham despite having his desire to leave the club in the summer.
The article also states that Kane, who was tipped to beat every goal record in the book by former manager Jose Mourninho, rejected a fresh deal days after the striker lost to Italy in the final of the national competition, but avenues are now open for fresh terms to be discussed between club chiefs and the striker.
A deal would only be agreed if Levy welcomes the idea of inserting a release clause however, meaning Paratici and the divisive Spurs chairman may have some serious negotiating to do.
The Verdict: Long way to go
With Kane remaining at the club and Heung-Min Son extending his stay at the club, things are truly looking up for Spurs in terms of keeping their star men.
The striker, who was described as ‘unbelievable‘ by Jack Grealish recently, has scored 223 goals in 340 appearances for Tottenham, a remarkable record, and he will be hoping Levy will consider his history in mind when concluding a deal.
Whilst the deal may mean a pay rise for Kane, Paratici’s thinking of keeping hold of Kane for this season and maybe the following is vital if they are to return to the top six of the Premier League.
