Tottenham: Kane will 'probably look for a clause' in Hotspur Way contract talks

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte talks to Harry Kane

Tottenham striker Harry Kane will probably want a release clause in any new contract he signs at Hotspur Way, says transfer insider Dean Jones.

With Bayern Munich seemingly interested in signing the England captain, the north London club may have to move quickly and offer their talisman a new deal. However, Jones thinks he would want a release clause to be included in it.

What is the latest news involving Kane?

Last month, Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann refused to rule out a move for Kane.

“He could score a lot in the Bundesliga,” the 35-year-old said (via Sky Sports). “I don’t know the price, but it’s really tough for Bayern Munich. We’ll see what happens in the future.”

Kane has just under two years remaining on his current Tottenham contract and was a target for Manchester City in the last summer transfer window.

With the 29-year-old set to enter the final 12 months of that deal next June, getting him out of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2023 should not be impossible. City, though, are unlikely to be suitors following their acquisition of Erling Haaland.

What has Jones said about Kane’s Tottenham future?

If Spurs are to convince Kane to sign a new contract, Jones believes they will have to promise him the inclusion of a release clause.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the journalist said: “The big part of the negotiation will obviously be around a release clause. At the moment, Kane will see his expiring contract as the perfect way to draw a line under his Tottenham career if things aren’t going well at that point.

“So I think if he was to sign, he would probably look for a clause that kicks in around the same sort of time that was feasible for him to get out as well.”

Will Bayern sign Kane?

This summer, no chance. Having sold Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, the German giants could do with the arrival of a new No.9. And Kane, who has scored over 250 goals in his club career, would be a worthy successor to the Poland international.

Which club did David Ginola start his professional career at?

However, with around two years still to run on his contract, Tottenham are not going to sell their best player, especially this late in the window. It would be almost impossible to replace him.

Next summer, with Kane entering the final 12 months of his current deal, it could be another story. But that is not something Antonio Conte will be worrying about now as he looks to guide Spurs to another top-four finish and some silverware this season.
