Transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has given Tottenham Hotspur fans an update on the situation surrounding Harry Kane’s future at the club.
The England captain’s future is still very much in flux at the moment, with a recent report from The Athletic claiming that he will ask to leave the club should they fail to finish in the top four, something that is looking rather likely at this point. However, there are some who believe that his short-term future will be in north London because nobody will be able to afford the asking price.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, Romano explained that there is still a lot that needs to be worked out when it comes to Kane’s future, and that a lot could change between now and the end of the season, while that nothing is really off the table at this point:
“Without the Super League, it will be complicated for many clubs, as we said, to spend like €150m or €160m on a single player, so this is the situation right now.
“At the moment, the situation is quiet on the Harry Kane side, but we know his desire to play Champions League football, so let’s see how it will finish in the Premier League.
“The situation with Tottenham is key to understand what’s happening with him, but if Tottenham will not be in the Champions League, for sure, they have to meet with Harry Kane and decide together about the future.
“The intention of the president and owner Daniel Levy is to keep the player, he wants to keep Harry Kane, he wants to try in the next months to convince him to sign a new contract. But at the moment, the situation is still quiet, and let’s see at the end of the season. So everything is open.”
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments about Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham Hotspur…
This does look like a situation that could drag on, with Kane himself saying last month that he will decide on his future after this summer’s European Championship, which can’t be good for Tottenham as they plan for next season.
Surely they would want as much warning as possible about what the future holds for the club and what the team is set to look like next year, and whether or not they have to factor in the money that selling Kane could bring in, even if it isn’t the full fee of what they would ask for.
So the longer this goes on, the more chaos it has the potential to cause the club heading into next season.
