Simon Jordan has said Tottenham are confident that Harry Kane will commit his future to the club, partly because the striker does not have too many options to choose from in the summer.
The updates regarding Kane’s future over the last couple of days have been fairly positive from a Tottenham perspective.
The Athletic revealed on Monday that the North London club remain determined to tie the striker down to a new deal and are not thinking about a summer sale despite the fact that the is into the final 15 months of his contract.
Sky Sports then went a step further on Tuesday and claimed that Spurs will not sell Kane this summer irrespective of where they finish in the table or whether he signs a new deal.
The report added that the striker’s future could still be unresolved heading into the next January transfer window.
Jordan has now suggested that the feeling within Spurs about Kane’s future is generally positive.
The pundit said on talkSPORT: “I get the impression that there’s a distinct feeling that Harry Kane may well re-sign for Tottenham.
“There are people in his family that would very much like that, there are other people in his family that would like to get themselves involved in a transfer deal that they’ve never done before and move him along.
“I think the feeling was there wasn’t as many suitors for Harry Kane as the media would have liked you to believe and the Man City offer (in 2021) wasn’t quite as solid as people think it was.”
“I think if Kane was going to have gone, there would have been harder and faster decisions being made when he really was looking like he wanted to go. Man City don’t need him now, they’re not going to buy him, because they’ve got Erling Haaland.
“He isn’t going to go to Chelsea, that isn’t going to happen. He definitely isn’t going to go to Arsenal. Do you think he’s going to go to the Bundesliga? I don’t think so. So where does he go? Man United? Maybe.
“He is [an upgrade on Wout Weghorst] and Manchester United and Tottenham have perhaps done deals in the past, [Dimitar] Berbatov and things of that nature, so we know things can be done.
“But I think there’s a quiet, albeit not completely assured confidence, that there’s enough skin in this game to be able to get Harry Kane to want to stay at Tottenham.”
Spurs Web Opinion
The reports coming out over the last few days seem to suggest that Spurs are prepared to fight to keep hold of their talisman while Man Utd are having second thoughts about entering into negotiations with Levy.
Things look fairly promising for the moment but we know that the situation can change rapidly in football.
