The Telegraph have revealed that Harry Kane could decide to run down his contract at Tottenham Hotspur and leave on a free transfer in the summer of 2024.
There have been various contradictory updates regarding Kane’s future over the last week.
Fabrizio Romano claimed on the House of Champions podcast a few days ago that Tottenham have no intention of negotiating with any clubs regarding the striker and first want to make an ‘important contract’ offer to the player.
The journalist added that the contract talks have been delayed by the fact that Spurs currently have no head coach or director of football in place.
However, The Daily Star claimed last Wednesday that Kane had decided not to sign a new contract at Tottenham as he is aware that he has to leave the club in order to win trophies.
The Telegraph have now raised a different possibility by suggesting that the 29-year-old might remain at North London for one more season without signing a new deal.
The publication suggests that there are ‘increasing doubts’ at Spurs over whether Kane would sign a new deal and that the striker is now looking at all options, including running down the final 12 months of his contract.
If that comes to pass, the England captain would be free to discuss a pre-contract agreement with clubs starting from January 2024.

If Kane opts against signing a new contract, it would be in Tottenham’s interest to cash in on him this summer and use the funds to rebuild the squad.
However, Levy might perhaps be willing to risk letting the striker run into the final year of his contract in the hope that the 29-year-old would change his mind if Spurs start next season well.
