Ornstein makes Kane prediction and thinks Man United will ‘keep an eye on’ the Spurs forward
Harry Kane’s future at Spurs is currently up in the air as his current deal with the club will run until the summer of 2024.
The Spurs striker has started the season well and has scored nine goals in his opening 11 matches.
Spurs currently sit third in the Premier League, but we’re well beaten by Man United in midweek. Erik ten Hag’s side ran out as 2-0 winners, but the scoreline didn’t quite reflect their dominance.
Conte’s side only managed two shots on target and struggled to deal with United’s press.
David Ornstein of the Athletic believes this is an interesting time for Kane and deciding what his next move is.
He told The Five Insider: “One I guess to keep an eye on for us, and I’m not suggesting anything is brewing, is Harry Kane. United have long been reported admirers of him and credited with an interest.
“Kane is under contract until 2024 and there hasn’t been much suggestion of a new deal.”
During the summer of 2021, Kane was heavily linked with a move to Man City, but nothing materialised in the end.
He has since been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, but Kane himself has been quick to talk down the rumours.
Ornstein added: “Tentative reports here and there, but after that move to Man City never materialised, rumours of Bayern, would United make a play at that?
“We’ve been told at various times that if Tottenham are challenging for trophies then that would be to Kane’s liking.
“He wants to succeed with Tottenham, and if that were the situation maybe a new contract would come about.
“But if you get to the point where Tottenham are at the same level they’ve been at in recent years then maybe he would leave as a free agent or maybe Levy would be more open to sanctioning a departure that will secure him a return if he’s not going to sign a new contract.”
Man United could plot a move for Kane as they will soon be searching for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Given Ronaldo’s recent antics, his days at Old Trafford now appear to be limited.
Kane is one of the best strikers in Premier League history and Spurs will surely demand a huge price tag, even with his contract running down.
Next up for Conte’s side is a game against Newcastle this weekend. Spurs currently have the joint-best home record in the league and have won all five of their home fixtures.
The problems Spurs have run into this season have mostly come on the road against fellow big six sides.
Kane will soon have the opportunity to weigh up his future and decide on what his next step is.
