Louis Saha has revealed that while he wanted Harry Kane to leave Tottenham two years ago, he now believes that the striker should sign a new contract at the North London club.
Kane is into the final two years of his current deal at Spurs and reports over recent months have indicated that the Lilywhites are more confident that the striker could sign a new contract (The Athletic).
However, German publications continue to link the 29-year-old with a move to Bayern Munich next summer.
Earlier this week, Christian Falk claimed that Bayern are hopeful Kane will not sign a new contract with Spurs so they can make a move for him next summer.
However, Fabrizio Romano subsequently told CaughtOffside that despite interest from the Bundesliga giants, Tottenham are ‘relaxed’ about the England captain’s future.
Saha believes that Kane can fulfil his ambitions of winning major honours at Spurs since the club are moving in the right direction under Antonio Conte.
The former Man Utd and Tottenham striker told compare.bet: “I think I would have said that one or two years ago that Kane had to leave Tottenham, because he was on fire and everything at Tottenham was not improving around him.
“But at the moment, that is not the case. They are a very exciting side, Conte has managed to get an even stronger squad around Kane now.
“Now is not the moment to think about trophies, it’s so early in the season. But I can tell you now this squad can win trophies. The foundation is built and the manager has experience of winnings things. He’ll get them very close.”

The only two clubs that Kane can go to in the Premier League, who would be a step up from Tottenham, are Man City and Liverpool.
However, with those two clubs having spent big on Haaland and Nunez respectively, they are not likely to be in the market for a centre-forward anytime soon.
Given that Spurs are now moving in the right direction, I do believe that the 29-year-old will be tempted to sign a new deal.
