Reliable transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano is confident that Harry Kane will still be a Tottenham player next season.
The England captain is enjoying at outstanding for Spurs, scoring 27 goals and added 16 assists in all competitions, although Jose Mourinho’s side look outsiders for a Champions League spot.
Following his goal and assist for England against Albania on Sunday, ex-Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane told ITV that Kane needs to leave Tottenham in order to fulfil his ambition of winning trophies, but the striker could end his lengthy wait for silverware when Mourinho’s team face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
Kane has been continuously linked away in recent seasons, although speculation has increased dramatically following Tottenham’s recent Europa League exit, and the fact he turns 28 in July, meaning time is against him should he leave north London.
But Romano revealed that there’s “nothing advanced” at present, and fully expects Kane to remain at Tottenham despite uncertainty surrounding his future.
The Italian told GiveMeSport: “I think it’s difficult to see Harry Kane out of Tottenham. I know what he said in the last interviews and obviously we are in March so at the moment there is nothing advanced, but what I’m told is that Tottenham are planning with Harry Kane as part of the team.
“They want to discuss about this contract in the coming months and let’s see when they will decide to do it but they’re planning with him so at the moment there is nothing advanced with other clubs and they’re happy with Harry Kane so let’s see what he will decide..
“I think it will be really difficult to see Harry Kane out of Tottenham this summer.”
