Gary Jacob delivers positive update on Harry Kane’s Tottenham future

Tottenham Hotspur are hopeful of being able to keep hold of Harry Kane this summer, according to The Times.

Manchester City were heavily linked with the England captain before the start of the season with Pep Guardiola admitting that he was keen to bring the forward to the Etihad, only for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to refuse point blank to enter into any negotiations (Manchester Evening News).

Times journalist Gary Jacob has claimed that City have instead set their sights on Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland to lead their frontline with the Premier League champions set to complete a deal for the Norwegian.

Manchester United’s hopes of landing Kane were reliant on the potential appointment of former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, with the Old Trafford outfit now look set to appoint Ajax’s Erik ten Hag as the man to replace Ralph Rangnick.

With Tottenham currently occupying fourth place in the Premier League and in contention for a return to Champions League football coupled with the lack of alternative options for him to move elsewhere in England, Kane has reevaluated his future beyond this summer.

Kane will have two years left on his current contract at the end of the campaign and the player who will be 29 in July has not held any discussions over a new contract since last summer.

The academy product is said to be unlikely to seek a move abroad such is his desire to break Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record along with his aim of surpassing Jimmy Greaves’ record at Tottenham.

Securing Champions League football this season could prove to be pivotal in helping persuade Kane to commit his long term future to the club which would also certainly send the right message to Antonio Conte that he should continue with his north London project

Kane’s potential other destinations in England look slim.  Spurs refuse to do any business with Chelsea while a move to Arsenal would also be impossible.  With Ten Hag’s impending appointment at United, it would only leave Liverpool as the other ‘big six’ club.
