Tottenham legend Gary Mabbutt believes that the North London club will do everything in their power to ensure that Harry Kane remains at the club for the rest of his career.

Harry Kane will undoubtedly go down as Tottenham‘s biggest legend in recent history, no matter what happens this summer.

The striker has already written his name into the history books by becoming the club’s record goalscorer, breaking Jimmy Greaves‘ record of 266 goals, which stood for more than half a century.

Both Kane and Spurs face a big decision this summer, with the striker now having just over a year left to run in his contract at the North London club (Transfermarkt).

In his appearance at the debating society of Cambridge University last month, Daniel Levy remained adamant that the 29-year-old can fulfil his ambitions of winning trophies at Tottenham.

The Spurs chairman also suggested that he is hopeful there will be a statue of Kane outside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when he eventually hangs up his boots.

Mabbutt, who is now a club ambassador for Tottenham, said that everyone in N17 is hopeful that the talismanic strike will remain at the club.

The former FA Cup and UEFA Cup winner said (via Yahoo Sports): “We will do everything we possibly can that Harry will remain a Tottenham player for the rest of his career. So that’s what we’re hoping for. That’s what we believe is going to happen.”

I have a feeling that Kane’s entourage will ask for any new contract to come with a release clause of around £60m-£80m, which would be active next summer in case Spurs finish outside the top four again next season. 

It will be interesting to see if Levy grants such a request as the Tottenham chairman has historically not been one to entertain release clauses.
