Harry Kane played for Tottenham in a 3-2 win over Manchester City on Saturday, which shows why Premier League champions are desperate for an England captain.
Man City came close to signing Kane in the summer of 2021, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has rejected a bid worth £ 127 million for Premier League champions.
Leading up to a dispute between Spurs and Kane, the striker failed to attend pre-season training and did not play in the first two games of the season.
The tough start to the season for Kane, who scored just two goals in the league before Christmas, raised the question of whether the 28-year-old still has the desire and intelligence to hit top form. But now he looks very happy and his departure from City could revive his season.
Will Tottenham offer Kane a new contract?
Kane’s current contract should keep him at Spurs until 2024, but he may be looking to join another club this summer.
The spurs’ best bet to keep Kane is to give him a new and improved contract that will provide stability between the two teams and end any speculation about Kane’s future.
Conte could be key to Kane remaining
Antonio Conte’s presence at Spurs has boosted the team and the Italian will be a key factor in whether Kane is left.
Harry Kane wants Levy to support Conte’s transfer requirements to increase Spurs’ chances of ending the 14-year trophy waiting period.
The Spurs Champions League final in 2019 sounds like a long time ago and it has been a very difficult time for the club since it finished second in Liverpool.
It has been two years since Tottenham were in the Champions League and Kane will be looking forward to playing in the big leagues of the club as soon as possible.
Despite losing three league games in a row, Spurs are in contention for the top four with seven points from fourth-placed Manchester United but have three games in hand.
If Spurs can finish in the top 4, and if Conte stays, it may be enough to persuade Kane to stay at least another season.
