Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur must do two things if they are to keep Harry Kane at the club beyond the end of the season.
The Spurs marksman admitted last week that he will not make a decision on his future until after the Euros this summer (Mirror).
Redknapp believes that Jose Mourinho must guide his side to a top four finish in the Premier League to secure Champions League football along with victory in the Carabao Cup if Kane is to remain in North London.
Kane will turn 28 in July and has yet to win a competitive trophy with Tottenham with just two runners-up medals in the League Cup (2015) and the Champions League (2019) to his name.
Former Real Madrid supremo Ramon Calderon believes the Spanish giants will not be able to afford to sign Kane this summer, potentially keeping one of European football’s top clubs away from the England captain (talkSPORT).
Redknapp told Football365: “If Tottenham get into the top four, if Tottenham win the Carabao Cup – which is going to be incredibly difficult – he might look at it and go ‘You know what, I want to stay at this club’ because it has everything,”
“But if he feels for one second the club haven’t got the ambition or is heading in the right direction that opportunity comes to him he won’t want to look back in a couple of years’ time and think ‘I wish I had won this or that’.
“He will want Champions League football next season.
“I’m not sure the Carabao Cup will be enough to keep him there but I think if they win the Carabao Cup and get top four that is a different one for them.
“At 27 years of age, Harry has to make a decision sooner or later as there are young guns coming up with (Kylian) Mbappe and (Erling) Haaland possibly available in the summer.
“Harry will look at it and he won’t want to miss the boat.”
