After conceding defeat in his attempts to leave Tottenham this summer, Harry Kane faces another battle with the club for a new contract.
Kane wants an improved deal to reflect his £ 160million valuation, which Manchester City have never come close to encountering during this summer’s biggest transfer saga.
The England captain is pushing for a salary of around £ 400,000 a week to bring him closer to Premier League top-earners Kevin De Bruyne, David De Gea and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, although negotiations are unlikely to be straightforward.
Spurs are reluctant to give Kane a raise with three more years left on the six-year contract he signed in 2018 and after considerable disappointment over his attempts to force a move to City this summer.
The club are preparing to take another tough stance with their talisman, after rejecting a £ 100million offer from City and refusing to speak to the champions.
Kane’s side could also try to squeeze a release clause into a new contract to give him an easy way out in the future, although Spurs president Daniel Levy has historically avoided such clauses and would likely be reluctant to accept a decision that would end the negotiations. his hands.
Levy reportedly wants Kane to extend the length of any contract as part of the negotiations, potentially binding Kane to Spurs for the rest of his career, but maintaining the club’s influence if he insists on another move.
The president would also prefer a strong incentive contract with bonuses for individual and team success.
Kane comfortably earns over £ 200,000 a week but believes his salary does not reflect his importance to the club or his valuation. Tanguy Ndombele, for example, is earning £ 200,000 a week but Spurs hope this summer to recoup the £ 55million they spent to sign the club record.
New signings Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil are expected to start over, while Heung-min Son is available despite his hamstring at Wolves on Sunday.
Nuno revealed yesterday that he found out Kane was staying in the morning, shortly before the attacker broke the news on social media, and insisted he was not worried that the 28-year-old left the club in January.
“Fantastic news for everyone,” Nuno said. “We are all very happy. One of the best players in the world. We are all excited to have one more option for the season ahead. His attitude during training sessions has been excellent. It’s over, Harry is going to be with us. “
