Harry Kane ‘open’ to signing new Tottenham Hotspur contract amidst Manchester United interest
Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is ‘open’ to signing a new contract at the North London side amidst interest from Manchester United, according to The Athletic (Subscription Required) [h/t Manchester Evening News].
The Red Devils are currently monitoring the forward’s situation at Spurs. His current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2024 (transfermarkt).
However, Tottenham have planned to hold talks with the 29-year-old over a new deal after the ongoing transfer window. And if the conditions are right, the England international is willing to extend his stay in North London.
Kane broke out for Spurs in the 2014/15 campaign. Since then, the forward has consistently performed for them and has become the talisman at N17.
Since then, the 29-year-old has developed into one of the best players in the world. The striker has won three golden boots and has continued his goalscoring run this season.
The English skipper has also been key to the Three Lions’ success in the last few major tournaments. Gareth Southgate’s team made it to the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup but were beaten by France in a close encounter.
United’s forward line lost Cristiano Ronaldo in November. With the 37-year-old’s untimely departure, Wout Weghorst was signed by the club this month to add reinforcements up front.
However, the Holland international is just a short-term option at the Old Trafford side, on loan till the end of the campaign. Anthony Martial is our main striker. But the French national has been hampered by injuries this season. Marcus Rashford has had to be the leading man up front for Erik ten Hag.

Therefore, we evidently require an out-and-out quality goalscorer in the team. Kane fits that billing. However, if Tottenham tie the 29-year-old down to a new deal, it will be a tough task to prise him away next summer.
