Tottenham standout Kane

According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur are not in any rush to finalise a new deal for their forward Harry Kane.

The forward progressed through the ranks at Spurs and he has established himself as one of the best strikers in Europe.

The England international has scored 248 goals in 386 appearances across all competitions for the north London club.


Spurs optimism is high but a realistic target is to simply avoid Spursy backwards steps


Kane attempted to engineer a move away from Tottenham last summer. He was seeking to maximise his chances of winning team trophies and Man City were interested in him.

The striker ended up committing his future to Spurs and he shone for them in the last few months of the 2021/22 campaign. He finished the season with 17 goals and nine assists in the league.

His current contract expires in 2024 and he has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich in recent days. 

The German giants look set to lose Robert Lewandowski this summer. The prolific attacker is hoping to join FC Barcelona.

Despite this, 90min are reporting that Tottenham ‘are not rushing to tie Kane down to a new contract’.

The 28-year-old is said to be ‘happy at Spurs under Antonio Conte’. They add that the ‘general mood at the club is better’ than it was when Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge.

Elsewhere, former Premier League defender William Gallas does not think Manchester United will finish in the top four this season.

The Red Devils only picked up 58 points last term as they ended up sixth in the Premier League.

Man Utd finished the season 13 points adrift of Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur.

Erik ten Hag has left Ajax to take over at Man Utd ahead of next season. Tyrell Malacia is the only player they have signed so far this summer.

They are also being linked with the likes of Frenkie de Jong, Christian Eriksen and Antony.

Gallas played for Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham during his professional career. He does not think Man Utd are capable of earning a place in the Champions League in 2022/23:

“I don’t want to, but I have to put City because they look like they are going to be very strong,” Gallas told The Metro.

“So City, Chelsea, Liverpool definitely. Then the same problem, Arsenal or Tottenham, I don’t know. Manchester United? I don’t think so, no.”

On Tottenham, Gallas added: “I think they can cause trouble to the big clubs.

“They will cause problems as they will be very strong this season, especially with the mentality of Antonio Conte.”
