Tottenham boss Ryan Mason makes confident Harry Kane claim amid Real Madrid links

Recently, Spanish outlet Cadena SER (h/t Football.London) claimed that Real Madrid have been offered the chance to sign Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane by offering Eden Hazard plus cash in return.

It sounds ridiculous on paper for Spurs but they could have very few options if Kane continues to stall over a new deal. His current contract expires in the summer of 2024 (Transfermarkt) with a renewal nowhere in sight.

Kane is England and Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer. There are no doubts that the 29-year-old is a living legend and is still very much in his prime years.

Erling Haaland’s monstrous goal return for Manchester City has taken some shine away from Kane’s otherwise highly impressive tally of 30 goals and five assists in 48 games across competitions this term.

What next for Kane?

Fans wouldn’t be opposed to a statue of Kane outside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, especially if he stays at the club beyond next season. Speculation about his future grows with each passing week he hasn’t signed a new deal.

Ryan Mason, who is our caretaker manager, was asked to sum up the England international’s impact at the club if it was his last game for Spurs. He replied in his pre-match press conference before the league game against Leeds United on Sunday (May 28), via Football.London:

“I can’t sum it up because he’s still our player. I think when you sum something up, it’s a closed chapter and you speak about the past. That’s certainly not the case. For any player, manager, member of staff at this football club, when one leaves it’s important to have a succession plan in place.”

Mason has given a pretty diplomatic response but it was the correct one. Kane is still a Spurs player and there is every chance that chairman Daniel Levy wants to keep him here for another season.

Of course, that would mean losing out on getting something in transfer fees for him if he doesn’t pen fresh terms. But in football, stranger things have happened.

Kane’s body language in our clash against Leeds United at Elland Road will be telling. If his goodbyes to the away end seem overly emotional, then we can probably assume it was his last game for us.
