Transfer News: Harry Kane happy to commit future to Tottenham Hotspur
A year on since his infamous attempt to force a transfer to Manchester City collapsed, Kane now feels optimistic about his future at Spurs, who qualified for the UEFA Champions League this season.
The England captain netted his 50th goal for the Three Lions on Tuesday night, scoring a late penalty in the 1-1 Nations League draw against Germany.
His strike puts him second on the list of England’s all-time top goalscorers, only three goals behind record-holder Wayne Rooney.
Apparently, it’s Antonio Conte’s arrival and impact at the club which has convinced Kane to stay. The Italian’s rigorous discipline, winning mentality and tactical prowess has given the Spurs vice-captain hope that he can be part of a title-winning squad.
What changed Harry’s mind?
The ambition to win major trophies was the driving factor behind Kane’s desire to leave last summer, and Conte has reinvigorated that ambition, passion and desire to win at Tottenham – almost transforming the club culture.
Hence, the Spurs board do not expect a repeat of last season’s chaos and can feel more relaxed about their superstar staying on. They will also find further solace in the fact that none of the other Champions League clubs from the PL are in a position to sign Kane.
Manchester City have confirmed the impending arrival of Erling Haaland, Liverpool seem to be focused on Darwin Nunez and it remains to be seen if Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will ever consider selling Kane to Chelsea given the rivalry between the two teams.
It doesn’t mean that these teams want Kane or if they can, for a fact, not sign him. However, the situation surrounding those teams right now seems to favour Spurs.
