Football journalist Ian McGarry has claimed that Charlie Kane, brother and agent of Harry Kane, is planning to enter talks with Tottenham over a new contract for the forward.
Kane has been the centre of attention throughout the summer, attracting major interest from Manchester City, after manager Pep Guardiola expressed his personal desire to sign him.
A move, though, never materialised after Daniel Levy stood firm with his valuation, with City failing to bid a fee close enough to tempt the Spurs chief.
England captain Kane has since been forced into staying in north London for this season at least, despite seeing his future away from N17.
But McGarry has revealed to the Transfer Window Podcast that the Spurs forward’s brother Charlie, who represents him in negotiations, is plotting to agree a new and improved deal for his client.
A new contract would see a massive increase in weekly wages, but would also likely include some form of release clause which can be activated at a specific point.
“My information is that Kane’s position now is that his representative, who is his brother, Charlie Kane, is hopeful of negotiating an upgrade on Kane’s current contract,” McGarry said.
“That would include a release clause, meaning that Kane could leave next summer or indeed in January for a set fee, rather than the haggling which went on during the last few months between City and Tottenham.
“Kane himself still sees his future as playing in a team that will win trophies, something that he has not experienced.”
Spurs Web Opinion
It has been widely reported that Spurs actually offered Kane a mega deal to entice him to stay at the club this summer, before negotiations between City broke down. It was reported that Kane had rejected that deal in favour of a move away, and it is now off the table. It would be very surprising if Levy would be willing to negotiate now, especially just to add a release clause.
