Harry Kane is hopeful in a new Tottenham deal with a transfer touch, while Man Utd rejected a £ 34million summer deal – both in all recent Paper Talk.
KANE HOPES FOR THE TOTTENAM CONTRACT
Harry Kane could end up signing a new contract with Tottenham if President Daniel Levy inserts a release clause, according to a report.
The forward was determined to leave Spurs this summer and move to Manchester City. However, the English captain did not fulfill his wish and remains in North London.
Indeed, his current contract – which expires in 2024 and has no release clause – meant Levy was in a strong position to negotiate his transfer fees.
Considering Kane’s attempts to leave this summer, one would expect him to do so again. According to Eurosport, however, he could try to go further after extending his contract.
Kane hopes Levy goes against his usual methods by inserting a buyout clause into any new deal. This way the clubs would know his fees in the upcoming transfer windows.
But as the source points out, the forward should be the “exception to the rule” at Tottenham. Levy never bought into the idea of release clauses. While defender Toby Alderweireld had one, it was part of the package that saw him leave Southampton.
As for the potential sums involved in any new agreement, TEAMparler sources understand that Kane would want up to £ 500,000 a week.
Kane started the season with two goals in four games, both of his goals coming from the Europa Conference League.
