Daniel Levy told to begin contract talks with Spurs star before World Cup or be held “ransom next summer”

Paul Robinson tells Tottenham Hotspur to speed up Harry Kane contract talks

Speaking to Football Insider (h/t the Express), former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has told Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici to speed up contract talks for Harry Kane.

The England international is in the final two years of his contract at N17. After Robert Lewandowski’s departure to Barcelona this summer, Bayern Munich have seen their name linked with Kane with a view of a potential transfer in 2023.

Robinson, in this regard, makes a very good point that Spurs could be held ransom next summer if Kane doesn’t renew his deal by then. The former England international said:

“It is a situation that has to be addressed now. They have to start contract talks with him now. There is no better time to start. Spurs have not won or achieved anything yet but they are going places under Antonio Conte. They are competing at the top.”

In a recent QnA session on Football.London (as covered by TTLAB), Spurs expert Alasdair Gold claimed that there is no news regarding Spurs starting any sort of contract discussions with Kane.

Robinson continued:

“They need to look after themselves as well as the player. They cannot afford to be held to ransom next summer when he has just 12 months left on his deal. The club simply have to start negotiations before the World Cup starts.”

Manchester City wanted to sign Kane last year and Bayern are linked him with him recently. While the Cityzens signed Erling Haaland and Julain Alvarez this summer, one cannot rule out the biggest clubs in the world paying attention to Kane’s contract situation.

A good performance with England at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar could further raise Kane’s stocks. He is, after all, expected to captain the Three Lions and fight to win the World Cup Golden Boot once again – doing so in Russia with six goals in the competition.

Robinson makes another good observation that this is perhaps one of the best times for Spurs to open contract talks. Unlike Manchester United and Arsenal, they are playing in the UEFA Champions League and are just one point away from the current Premier League leaders.

More Tottenham News:

Kane, at 29, would also want to maximise benefits when putting pen to paper on any deal. By the time his current deal expires, he would be 30 years old, and it isn’t crazy to think that the Englishman would want one last big deal as a player.
