Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that Daniel Levy will try to convince Harry Kane to sign a new contract in the summer but admitted that the striker’s future will be up in the air if Tottenham finish outside the top four.
Kane has arguably had the most productive campaign of his career from an individual standpoint, turning into Tottenham’s creator-in-chief this season while continuing to be prolific in front of goal.
However, the striker’s wait for silverware goes on as the North Londoners once again came up short at the final hurdle after their defeat in the Carabao Cup final last Sunday.
On the back of that loss, some pundits urged the England captain, who has been linked with a move away, to leave his boyhood club this season in order to give himself a fighting chance of winning major trophies.
Kane certainly will not come cheap, with the striker still having three years to run on his Tottenham contract.
Romano has now revealed that the Spurs vice-captain will hold talks with the club’s hierarchy should they fail to qualify for the Champions League but insisted that Levy is determined to hold on to him.
The Italian journalist said on the Here We Go Podcast (as relayed by MSN): “Without the Super League, it will be complicated for many clubs, as we said, to spend like €150m or €160m on a single player, so this is the situation right now.
“At the moment, the situation is quiet on the Harry Kane side, but we know his desire to play Champions League football, so let’s see how it will finish in the Premier League.
“The situation with Tottenham is key to understand what’s happening with him, but if Tottenham will not be in the Champions League, for sure, they have to meet with Harry Kane and decide together about the future.
“The intention of the president and owner Daniel Levy is to keep the player, he wants to keep Harry Kane, he wants to try in the next months to convince him to sign a new contract.
“But at the moment, the situation is still quiet, and let’s see at the end of the season. So everything is open.”
