Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that tying down Harry Kane’s future will not be an easy job for the Tottenham hierarchy.

Kane has two years left to run on his contract with Spurs (Transfermarkt) and there has been some speculation about the striker’s future over recent weeks (Kicker).

Bayern Munich boss Julian Nageslmann remarked last month that while the German club could be interested in signing the England captain, a deal would be too expensive to do so this summer ((MEN).

According to a report in Bild (27/07/22 – as relayed by Sport Witness), the Bundesliga giants have already contacted Kane’s entourage to make him aware that they would be interested in signing him next summer if he does not pen a new deal with Spurs. 

However, Alasdair Gold (Football.London) and Fabrizio Romano (CaughtOffside) have both backed Spurs to offer the 29-year-old a new deal sooner rather than later.

Jones believes Tottenham have to be clever in their negotiations to convince Kane to sign on the dotted line.

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “Ultimately, they want to keep him for the next two seasons. 

“They’re still working on it and are still plugging away, but they’re going to have to come up with some clever negotiations to convince him that this is the right decision.”

The most important factor will be the timing of the negotiations. I would not be surprised if Kane decides to wait until January to see how the Spurs get on before committing his future to the club. 

Even though the striker seems to be enjoying working under Conte, he will likely want to see whether the Italian’s methods translate into results, given that this could be the last major contract of his career.
