Spurs: Fabrizio Romano relays Harry Kane claim

Fabrizio Romano has relayed a claim regarding the future of Tottenham Hotspur centre-forward Harry Kane.

What’s the latest?

Transfer Focus

In a recent post on Twitter, the Italian journalist relayed the comments of Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann, who – following reports of the Bundesliga club’s interest in a move for the 28-year-old next summer – did not rule out his side launching a bid for the England international at some point in the future.

In his tweet, the transfer insider said: “Nagelsmann on Harry Kane: ‘He is very expensive. He is strong with the ball, strong body – but at that price, it is really difficult. We will have to see what happens in the future…’.”

Conte will be fuming

Considering just how crucial a part of Antonio Conte’s side Kane is, Nagelsmann’s very public declaration that he is interested in a move for the 73-cap international is sure to have left the 52-year-old Tottenham manager fuming.

Indeed, with Kane’s future appearing somewhat uncertain earlier this summer, Alasdair Gold reported that, in a bid to all but end the speculation concerning the striker’s future, Spurs are hoping to tie the England captain down to a new deal ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

However, with the 28-year-old’s current contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium coming to an end in the summer of 2024, should Kane be tempted by a move to Bayern in 12 months’ time, whether or not the forward will end up putting pen to paper on a contract extension in north London very much appears up for debate.

Either way, Nagelsmann’s comments regarding his interest in the 247-goal hitman are sure to be incredibly frustrating for Conte and Fabio Paratici, as there will now be increased pressure on Spurs to finally end their trophy drought next season – with it being well-known that Kane wants to compete for major honours during the peak years of his career.

A truly wasted talent...

Indeed, were Tottenham to fail in their trophy hunt next season, it would not be surprising to see Kane once again push for a move away from the club in the summer of 2023 – something that would undoubtedly be a devastating outcome for Spurs supporters and Conte alike.
