Ally McCoist has suggested that Harry Kane should sign a contract extension at Tottenham Hotspur, but only if they can assure that Antonio Conte will remain.
Kane will see his current contract in N17 expire in two years, although Tottenham are more optimistic about tying him down on a new deal (The Athletic).
The striker has already revealed how he is happy in London and is excited to work with Conte moving forward (Evening Standard).
However, 90min claim that Spurs and Kane are not desperate to open contract negotiations at the moment, while Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has also confirmed that no progress has been made on that front so far.
Interestingly enough, Dean Jones (GiveMeSport) stated that the England captain could demand a release clause to be included in his contract if he signs a new deal with the north London side.
McCoist has now advised Kane to put certain conditions on the table before renewing his deal with Tottenham. The ex-Rangers striker urged the 29-year-old to include a clause where his contract can be reviewed if Conte leaves unexpectedly.
McCoist told talkSPORT: “If I was Harry Kane, and I’m happy, I would sign a contract but one of the stipulations is that Conte has to be the manager. You could say that if the manager leaves, there’s a review of Kane’s contract.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
There is no reason to see why Conte would depart Spurs, especially after the progress he has achieved in this short duration. Ensuring Champions League qualification is a great feat in itself, plus they have also enjoyed a solid start to this season.
Furthermore, Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici have also brought in a host of new signings this summer, indicating that they have long-term plans to work together with the Italian manager.
Conte himself recently admitted how he wants Kane to extend his contract (Sky Sports), further backing how there should be no cause of concern regarding both their future.
