Harry Kane's future is currently unknown. Many expect his transfer at the end of this season, and it seems that Manchester United is the most concrete in the whole story. Kane's contract expires in 15 months, and it will be very difficult to keep him on the team.
Jamie Redknapp commented on Harry Kane and his future. Redknapp believes that this is the last chance for the Englishman to make a big transfer. ‘In less than a year he can sign a free contract with somebody. His negotiators will be talking to clubs and clubs will know the situation,’ -Redknapp told Sky Sports, as quoted by metro.co.uk ‘That’s how football works – we bury our heads in the sand and say it’s not but he’ll have plenty of options because he’s a world-class player.
I would say this is Kane’s last chance to secure a big transfer, yes. This is a big opportunity to go if he wants to. He’s a Tottenham fan, he adores the club and there’s no doubt that, if he does go, it would be with a heavy heart.
While there’s this chaos at Tottenham, it doesn’t help your cause of keeping your star player. Every year you’re getting a new manager in and he’s probably thinking: “What’s the point of this?” You need some continuity – that’s conducive to success.’
Jamie Redknapp: Tottenham isn't in a strong position
Kane failed to win a single trophy with Tottenham and many are wondering; Why did Kane stay in the team for so long? The Spurs tried to keep him in various ways.
They believed that by hiring Mourinho and Conte, they could win the trophy. However, even that was not enough. ‘You’re not really in a strong position to negotiate if you’re Tottenham. It felt like Tottenham made the move to get Jose Mourinho and Conte to try to get that trophy, almost for Kane,’ he continued.
‘But the fact these two managers – who are serial winners – haven’t worked, you start to question: “Well, who can actually win at this club?" ‘The potential is there but it’s just not being realised right now.
The culture at the club doesn’t seem to be right in terms of being a winning mentality.’
