Spurs: Fabrizio Romano drops Harry Kane update

Fabrizio Romano has dropped an update on the future of Tottenham Hotspur centre-forward Harry Kane.

What’s the latest?

Transfer Focus

Speaking on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, the Italian journalist revealed that, following several reports claiming that Bayern Munich are interested in a move for the 28-year-old, the Bundesliga club are indeed keen on the idea of bringing the England captain to Allianz Arena in the summer of 2023.

However, the transfer insider did go on to state that, in a bid to deter Julian Nagelsmann’s side from launching a bid for the centre-forward in 12 months’ time, Antonio Conte, Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy are planning to offer the Spurs talisman a new long-term contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the coming weeks.

Regarding the future of Kane, Romano said:

“Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte are working together – of course, with Daniel Levy – to build a future around Harry Kane.

“Now the atmosphere around Tottenham is completely different. They have Champions League football and Harry Kane seems to be happy with the team, with the atmosphere. He is English so to stay in England is always the best solution.

“At the moment everything is perfect between Tottenham and Kane.

“They want to offer him a new contract to avoid an attempt from Bayern for next summer in 2023, and so it is true that Bayern are in love with Harry Kane. But Tottenham have no intention to let him go, not just this summer but for the future. Conte considers him a key part of his project.”

Conte will be fuming

While the news that Paratici and Levy look set to offer Kane a new contract to extend his stay in north London beyond the summer of 2024 is undoubtedly good for all involved with Spurs, Romano’s confirmation that Bayern are extremely interested in a move for the 28-year-old is nevertheless sure to have left Conte fuming.

Indeed, the Italian manager recently chastised Nagelsmann for speaking publicly about his interest in the 73-cap international, stating his belief that the 35-year-old’s remarks regarding the 247-goal Spurs striker were “disrespectful” to Tottenham.

However, while it would appear as if Kane is more than happy to remain with the Premier League side while Conte is at the helm, should the 52-year-old leave at any point over the course of the next year – with the former Inter Milan, Juventus and Chelsea manager not exactly being known for his longevity at any particular club – the centre-forward’s future at Spurs could become much less certain.

Furthermore, with Kane himself revealing that he wants to be winning trophies over the peak years of his professional career, a poor start to Tottenham’s 2022/23 Premier League campaign, or a group stage exit from the Champions League next season, could also see the £81m-rated talent begin to question his immediate future at the club.

A truly wasted talent...

As such, Romano’s confirmation that Bayern are indeed waiting in the wings for the £200k-per-week forward is sure to come as a source of great frustration to Paratici, Levy and Conte – as being aware that the six-time European Cup winners are ready and willing to make a move for his services next summer will undoubtedly be a very tempting prospect for Kane.
