Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to go to unfamiliar lengths to involve Harry Kane in key decisions in order to help keep the forward at the club, according to 90min.
The striker is out of contract in north London in the summer of 2024 and has seen his side squander their hopes of ending a fifteen-year wait for silverware after crashing out of both the FA Cup and Champions League in the space of a week.
Antonio Conte’s future at the club is growing increasingly doubtful with reports suggesting that the Italian is set to depart as head coach when his own contract expires at the end of the campaign (Daily Mail).
Former manager and fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino has been heavily linked with potentially succeeding Conte, while former Spain and Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is said to be at the top of Fabio Paratici‘s shortlist (Evening Standard).
The report claims that Tottenham will involve Kane in the decision-making process of the recruitment of a new head coach in the hope it will lead to him pledging his future to the club.
Contact is also said to have been made by the club’s hierarchy with the squad to gather their feelings about the position.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is set to meet with Kane towards the end of the season in which could prove to be a crucial meeting to decide the course of whether the club’s record goalscorer will look to push for a move elsewhere.
Kane was reported to have pushed for a move to Manchester City, who appeared the favourites to sign the striker during the summer of 2021, having lost club legend Sergio Aguero to Barcelona (Telegraph).
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is said to have made Kane his number one striker target ahead of the summer and are in a healthy position to offer the marksman Champions League football next season (Manchester Evening News).
Harry Kane has been a brilliant servant to Tottenham and nobody could begrudge the player if he decided he wanted to leave the club this summer in order to fulfil his dream of winning silverware.
It would be heartbreaking to see Kane line up in a United shirt alongside Christian Eriksen and winning trophies – something which should have happened in north London if the club had only backed Mauricio Pochettino in consecutive transfer windows.
