Harry Kane is thinking about extending his stay at boyhood club Tottenham Hotspur. The England captained tried to engineer a move to Manchester City the previous summer. But now with the signing of Erling Halland, perhaps the Citizens need not spend a nine-figure sum for his services.
Things at Tottenham have settled too: Kane is reportedly happy with the direction of the club and is satisfied with the ambition shown by chairman Daniel Levy. Antonio Conte steered the Lillywhites to an improbable top 4 finish and has been promised a huge war chest to bolster his squad next season.
The striker was clearly disgruntled with his club at the end of the last season. The sacking of Jose Mourinho, before a cup final, was something that did not sit with him right. He tried to force a move to Pep Guardiola’s side, but Tottenham refused to sell. Kane was disappointed, and his dissatisfaction reflected in his on-field performances, where he only scored 1 goal until December.
Wise Move From Kane?
But a reinvigoration of both Kane and Spurs under Conte saw the forward net 17 goals and register 10 assists. His partnership with Son Heung-Min became deadly once again, as they became the statistically best duo in Premier League history.
He is now willing to stay at Spurs to fight for honours and is confident Conte is the man to guide them to a long-overdue trophy.
There is still a lot of work to do. I think the improvement has definitely been there since the gaffer came in to where we are nowIt shows it can be done in a short space of time, but obviously we will see what happens over the summer and look forward to the next season with a great manager.
A player of the calibre of Harry Kane deserves trophies. Being at Spurs may not guarantee them. But with Conte’s reputation as a serial winner, a trophy may finally be on the way to N17. One trophy for his childhood club will certainly be more special to him and the fans, compared to a number of trophies at a place where he is just another player, wouldn’t it?
