The ball is in Harry Kane’s court when it comes to new contract talks with Tottenham, according to The Athletic.
Kane, who produced one his best ever individual performances against Manchester City on Saturday, will have two years remaining on his current contract come the end of the season.
And The Athletic claims Spurs will wait for Kane to initiate discussions over a new deal.
The report, written by the ever reliable David Ornstein, suggests Kane ‘wants to assess the club’s progress and outlook’ before making a decision on whether to commit his long-term future to Tottenham again.
In other words, finishing in the top four and backing Antonio Conte in the transfer market are likely to be crucial factors when it comes to keeping the 28-year-old happy.
Interestingly, Ornstein believes Kane will not push to be sold in the summer of 2023 if Daniel Levy doesn’t let him go again this summer – instead he will happily leave on a free transfer at the end of his contract in 2024, at the age of 31.
Ultimately it sounds like Kane is not desperate to leave, nor is he fully convinced by Spurs’ recent progress just yet – the coming months will seemingly be key.
