Harry Kane could be playing his final home game for Tottenham today when they face off against Brentford.
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy has indicated that he will be pushing for Harry Kane to stay at the club beyond this summer with the hope there is “more to come” in terms of the striker’s record-breaking achievements. It’s been another disappointing campaign for Spurs after promising so much under Antonio Conte.
Their season fell apart under the Italian before the working relationship came to an unceremonious end. With two games remaining, Tottenham now have a battle on their hands to secure some form of European football next season.
But their biggest fight will likely come in the summer in trying to convince star striker Kane to stay with the club. The England international came close to leaving two years ago when Manchester City were pushing for his signature, but Tottenham’s high demands proved too much for the Etihad outfit.
Manchester United are now leading the race for Kane’s signature this time around and Tottenham are in a weaker negotiating position this time around with just 12 months left on his contract. But Levy has used his final matchday programme notes of the season to send a subtle message to the club’s supporters that Tottenham will be working on trying to keep Kane from United’s clutches.
“Dear supporters, this has been an immensely difficult season. We made footballing decisions over recent seasons based on ambition and a desire to bring success to our club and they have not delivered what we had hoped,” Levy wrote. “Your frustration has been understandable and all of us at the club have shared it. We have undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of our footballing operations. Scott Munn joins us in the summer as our new chief football officer and we look forward to sharing further news with you post-season.”
Levy goes on to thank Ryan Mason for stepping into the head coach role once again, just a couple years after he took up a similar role following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal back in 2021. And the Tottenham chairman added a further promise to the club’s supporters that rigorous work will be done during the summer to vastly improve on this season’s disappointment.
“We shall spend the period ahead of next season working relentlessly to position our club for on-pitch success and football you will love to come and watch,” he added. “Every element of the club’s operations is geared toward delivering that.”
Tottenham currently occupy seventh in the table, which would be enough to play in the Europa Conference League next season. But Aston Villa are level on points with Spurs and ready to pounce should the London-based club slip up.
