Kane set for Spurs stay for at least another season

Harry Kane is set to remain at Tottenham for at least another season, amid speculation that his future could lie away from the club.

The 27-year-old initially burst onto the scene during the 2014/15 season at Spurs and has since gone on to hit 156 goals in just 232 Premier League appearances for the club, developing into one of the most prolific marksmen in world football.

This season, in particular, has been among the forward’s finest, bagging 13 goals and 11 assists in the league, demonstrating his growing creative influence, as well as his undeniable finishing prowess.

Although he remains arguably the key man for both club and country, there had been rumours that he could be nearing an exit, as he seeks to finally secure a major trophy.

With Spurs currently in ninth and struggling for form, albeit with the Carabao Cup final still to come, there was speculation that Kane could well depart this summer.

However, according to the Telegraph, the striker set to stay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for at least another season, as it looks increasingly unlikely that any of Europe’s elite will be able to afford him.

In a bid to ward off potential interest, owner Daniel Levy reportedly slapped a £150m asking price on the player, with few club’s able to afford such a fee, particularly with the financial implications of the ongoing pandemic.

There had been suggestions that Kane could be set for a reunion with Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain, although any such move appeared to rest on the situation regarding both Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City have also been linked with having an interest, though with the Englishman’s current deal set to expire in 2024, the North London club are in no rush to sell and would likely only be moved by an eye-watering figure.

That being said, the report suggests that they are aware he will become a ‘depreciating’ asset the nearer he gets to the end of contract, while they also recognise his desire to win trophies.
