Fabrizio Romano has been speaking on the latest episode of his Here We Go podcast to discuss all things transfer related ahead of the summer transfer window.
Will Kane push for a summer exit?
The England captain has been in stunning form this season and is currently topping the Premier League goals and assists charts with 19 goals and 13 assists for the season.
However, as Tottenham’s only chance at lifting silverware this season is in their Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, there is growing speculation surrounding the possibility of Kane leaving north London this summer.
Speaking on the £108m-rated striker’s future, Romano had the following to say:
“Harry Kane, the position from Tottenham is still the same. Daniel Levy wants to keep the player, he will do his best to keep Kane, he feels protected because he has two years of contract.
“So it’s not a dangerous situation yet, but we have also to say that Harry Kane wants to play Champions League football, as [Erling] Haaland wants, Harry Kane [also] wants to play Champions League football. And he’s older, so that is normal for Harry Kane to have this desire of playing Champions League football.
“So let’s see how it develops with Tottenham and with the Champions League spot complicated too, as for Borussia Dortmund, same for Tottenham – but Kane wants the Champions League and Tottenham wants to fight to keep Harry Kane.
“I think to say again about Tottenham that if Kane will stay and will decide to stay at Tottenham, Tottenham will be prepared to offer him a new contract.”
TIF Thoughts on Romano’s comments…
It is looking extremely difficult for Kane to leave this summer given the astronomical price tag which Daniel Levy will have put on him and the current financial state of a lot of football teams across the world.
We can understand Romano’s claim behind Spurs wanting to tie down Kane to a longer deal if he does end up remaining at Spurs come the end of the summer transfer window, however, is that something he will actually want to do?
Going off The Athletic’s report, it seems Kane wants the move to happen this summer, so why would he extend his deal which would only increase his fee even further and potentially end his chances of leaving in the future?
