Tottenham Hotspur can now concentrate all of their efforts on convincing Harry Kane to sign a new contract now that the summer transfer window has closed, writes the Boy Hotspur.
That’s according to journalist Pete O’Rourke, who spoke to This is Futbol about the latest news from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after the transfer window closed.
Bayern Munich are hoping Kane will stall signing a new contract with the north London club so that the German giants can make a bid for the 29-year-old in 2023, according to BILD journalist Christian Falk.
His current contract at Spurs runs until 2024, meaning that he could be available at a cut-price next summer. However, now that the summer transfer window has closed, O’Rourke believes Spurs can focus their transfer efforts on convincing Kane to sign a new contract, increasing both his value and the likelihood of him staying at the club. He said:
“Yeah, now the window is closed they can put all the focus on the football and also maybe look at tying down Harry Kane to a new contract.
“Antonio Conte has already spoken about hoping that something can be done to sort out his future.
“Especially when you’ve got the rumours of Bayern Munich waiting in the wings to maybe try and sign him next summer.”
It goes without saying how vital it is for Spurs to secure Kane’s long-term future, and perhaps a record-breaking contract may be required to keep the star striker tied down to a new deal. One thing is for sure, the longer the saga continues, the more chances of him joining Bayern next season.
