Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Daniel Levy intends to offer Harry Kane a new contract this summer.

Tottenham fans would have breathed a sigh of relief when Manchester City announced earlier this week that they had agreed on a deal to sign Erling Haaland, as that seemingly rules out the chances of Pep Guardiola’s men reigniting their interest in Kane. 

The 28-year-old has only two years left to run on his contract but Football.London’s Alasdair Gold reported last month that the Tottenham hierarchy remain unwilling to sell the striker just as they were last month.

The Independent reported this week that the England captain has been more captivated by Conte than he has by any other coach since Mauricio Pochettino.

Romano has now backed up the claims regarding Spurs’ unwillingness to sell Kane and the striker’s relationship with Conte. The journalist revealed that the decision on whether or not to extend his deal will come down to Kane himself.

Romano wrote in his column for CaughtOffside: “Manchester City’s interest in Harry Kane has clearly collapsed following the arrival of Erling Haaland. Harry’s priority is to reach a Champions League football spot with Tottenham and then have a direct discussion with the club at the end of the current season.

“Kane has an excellent relationship with Antonio Conte, the Italian manager will demand confirmation of Harry among the many conditions to remain Spurs manager next season as well. 

“Many clubs are interested but it will not be an easy deal despite the rumours about Manchester United: Daniel Levy intends to offer Kane a new deal, so it will be up to Harry.

“Tottenham have not decided any price for Kane as of today. It was the same last summer, they simply didn’t want to sell him, so the situation will be similar this season – it will be up to Harry.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Now that City have signed Haaland, I do not see who Kane can join this summer. Manchester United are a fair way off from challenging for major honours while Liverpool would not be able to afford the 28-year-old and are more likely to want Heung-min Son.

So, there is no doubt in my mind that Kane will remain at Spurs next season. However, I am not convinced that he will be in a hurry to sign a new contract. He might want to wait and see how we progress under Conte next season.
