Report details Antonio Conte stance on Harry Kane and his Tottenham future
Antonio Conte is reportedly closing in on a move to Tottenham Hotspur as manager – after leaving Inter Milan last month. Football London’s Alasdair Gold said on Wednesday that it is ‘likely’ Conte will be unveiled by Daniel Levy. Now, a report has emerged detailing Conte stance on the Tottenham future of Harry Kane.
Kane, 27, is still expected to leave Tottenham . It is claimed that Kane would still want to leave Spurs regardless who Spurs appoint, as he does not believe Spurs have the power to bring in the players needed to make them a title contender. Manchester City and Manchester United are keen.
Despite one of Kane’s best seasons in terms of goals and assists – Spurs finished in seventh and failed to even qualify for the Europa League. That is despite the England skipper winning the Premier League golden boot and playmaker awards. As things stand, an exit is more likely than him staying.
CalcioMercato reported on Wednesday – and then The Times followed up on Thursday – as saying that Conte is desperate for Kane to stay at Spurs. Whether the future of Kane hinges on Conte getting the job remains to be seen, but it is likely to be a huge stumbling block for Spurs.
Could Conte and winning mentality convince Kane to stay at Tottenham?
What Kane needs to be convinced over another 12 months at Spurs, is big signings. Conte is a big signing. But the Italian then needs to massively improve the Spurs squad, and that includes Daniel Levy giving him a war chest this summer. They need numerous additions all over the park.
Gareth Bale is likely to return to Real Madrid after Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment. Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier and Bale need replacing. A couple of centre-backs, a midfielder and a new striker to cover Kane is needed. If Spurs get some signings done, Kane might just be convinced.
