Eurosport have claimed that Harry Kane could now be open to signing a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur after rejecting a new deal offered by the club during the summer.
Kane’s effort to engineer a move to Manchester City in the summer did not work as Daniel Levy held firm during the transfer window.
Football.London’s Alasdair Gold claimed last week that he would be ‘stunned’ if Tottenham Hotspur and Harry Kane’s representatives do not start talking about a new contract soon.
EuroSport have now explained that Kane rejected a new deal offered by Spurs days after England lost the European Championship final to Italy.
However, it is said that avenues are now open for fresh terms to be discussed after his move to City fell through.
The report adds that the striker would be open to signing a new deal as long as Levy agrees to insert a release clause in his contract.
It is claimed that while the Spurs chairman does not usually like release clauses, Kane is hoping that he can be considered a special case so that interested clubs know the figure they need to trigger in future years.
The report adds that while a new contract would see the England captain being handed a pay-rise, he is unlikely to be earning anywhere close to the £500,000-a-week deal he had agreed with City over the summer before the transfer fell through.
Spurs Web Opinion
If Levy does agree to insert a release clause in Kane’s contract, I suspect it will be for a value considerably higher than £150m. Given that the striker still has three years left to run on his current deal, Tottenham have nothing to gain by giving him a pay rise and inserting a release clause of around £100m- £120m.
