Football journalist Fabrizio Romano has been sharing some insight into Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and his future with the north London club.
This comes after Romano co-hosted a recent episode of the Here We Go Podcast where he spoke about a number of transfer-related taking points concerning a range of clubs across Europe.
On the subject of Kane, whose future at Spurs has been brought into question in recent weeks, Romano had this to say on the matter.
He said: “It’s so complicated to sign a player from Tottenham for an English club, because at the moment with Barcelona and Real Madrid there is nothing advanced or serious, so that’s why it’s better with Harry Kane at the moment.
“There is nothing advanced and Tottenham will fight to keep the player and let’s see what happens in the coming months because at the moment there is still nothing, but for his contract if he’s going to stay this summer, I’m convinced that Tottenham will prepare something to start negotiation with Harry Kane on a potential new contract.”
Since then, the 27-year-old, who is currently valued at £108 million, has made 327 appearances for the Lilywhites across all competitions in which he has scored 215 goals and provided 46 appearances along the way (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments on Kane and his future at Spurs…
With Kane’s current contract at Spurs set to expire in 2024, it seems that the club has some way to go before worrying about offering the striker a new deal, unless they feel that a new contract would help deter any potential clubs coming in to try and sign Kane, then this could be a possibility.
Do you think Spurs should offer Kane a new contract this summer?
In our view, considering how important the Englishman has been for Tottenham in terms of his incredible goalscoring abilities, it should be their priority to do all they can to keep hold of Kane for as long as possible.
