Harry Kane could now sensationally sign a new contract at Tottenham Hotspur…
That’s according to football.london reporter Alasdair Gold, who delivered a fresh update on the 28-year-old’s future on the ‘Gold and Guest talk Tottenham’ podcast this week.
“I’m intrigued to see where this goes now for Kane and camp Kane as it were, the people around him.
“There are little bits of noises coming out of his camp not to entirely rule out a new contract for him, which would be an incredible U-turn and turnaround, and for me, the prospect of that is incredible because there are other elements to that.
“If you’re going to stay, why not get more money, that makes sense, and if you look at what Spurs are trying to do in the transfer market, you can kind of say something exciting is happening there.”
Kane has been linked with an exit throughout the summer transfer window, with Manchester City widely touted as his preferred destination. As per Football Insider earlier this month, the England international was reportedly prepared to do “whatever it takes” to seal a move to the Etihad Stadium.
The Hotspur Way academy product requested to be sold before Euro 2020, according to Sky Sports, but City’s attempts thus far have been rejected as chairman Daniel Levy wants at least £150m to let his star striker leave.
It’s believed that Pep Guardiola’s side have the funds to sign Kane, on top of new arrival Jack Grealish, this month, so this saga is by no means over just yet.
However, this latest bombshell is very intriguing as it’s the first sign of there being a possibility that the England talisman stays in N17, even potentially signing a new deal, which as Gold states, would be incredible news.
Money does not seem to be the driving factor behind his desire to join the Citizens but rather his ambition to add silverware to his glistening goalscoring career.
Nobody can hold that against him but perhaps he has been left excited by Spurs’ transfer business so far this summer, signing an exciting wonderkid in Byran Gil and adding that marquee centre-back in Cristian Romero.
Either way, this fresh development will surely leave Nuno and many around North London absolutely delighted. There does appear to be a massive chance that Kane remains a Spurs player, and that’s a huge boost for the club.
