Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that Harry Kane is waiting to see who Tottenham appoint as their new head coach before making a decision on his future.
We covered a report from Sky Sports earlier this week, which claimed that Spurs have no intention of selling Kane irrespective of whether he signs a new deal or not and that the striker would have to push hard if he wants to join Manchester United this summer.
Romano has now elaborated on the centre-forward’s future, stating on the House of Champions podcast (starting at 5.40) that it is ‘impossible’ for the 29-year-old to sign a new deal right now, given the current situation at Spurs.
The journalist said that Kane is ‘waiting to understand’ the idea of the club moving forward, including who the new head coach and director of football are going to be.
Romano explained that while the striker loves Tottenham, the club would need to present him with a viable project if he is to sign, given that he is no longer a young player and is entering the peak years of his career.
He added that Tottenham will ‘fight’ to keep Kane and are set to offer him an ‘important contract’ soon, with Daniel Levy determined to do ‘everything in his power’ to ensure he stays.
Romano asserted that even though Manchester United, Bayer Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are watching the England captain’s situation, Spurs have no intention of negotiating with any of these clubs before they offer the striker a new deal.

We now look quite certain to miss out on the top four.
So, unless Tottenham make an ambitious appointment such as Julian Nagelsmann, I do not think Kane would be tempted to sign a new deal this summer.
So, Spurs might have a decision to make on whether to cash in on him and use the money to rebuild the squad or hang on to him and risk losing him for a free next summer.
