The England international’s contract expires next summer, leaving Manchester United and Real Madrid extremely keen on his services.
Karim Benzema’s exit from Madrid leaves Carlo Ancelotti desperate for a new striker at the Santiago Bernabeu, whilst Man United are expected to go all out in bolstering Erik ten Hag’s forward line.
Postecoglou’s ideas and vision are set to play a key role in Kane’s decision-making. Conte, Nuno Espirito Santo and Jose Mourinho have all implemented a defensively-secured style of play, despite the displeasure of supporters.

In 113 matches, Celtic scored 284 goals, 2.51 goals per game, conceding only 108.A change of system could see Postecoglou end Spurs’ 15-year wait for silverware whilst also keeping hold of the club’s most-prized asset for another year, at least.
