Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane has revealed there was ‘an honest’ meeting between himself and Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy following the club’s 1-6 defeat to Newcastle United last weekend.
Kane has been the subject of a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich all said to be interested in acquiring the services of the player.
The England international’s current contract with Spurs is set to expire next summer, and according to the Telegraph, the 29-year-old is willing to stay with the club until 2024 and then walk away for nothing. Kane’s contract position puts Levy in a difficult situation this summer, as he might be forced to sell the striker in order to keep from losing him for free.
Following their humiliation against Newcastle, Kane revealed the “honest conversation” he and the Spurs team had with Levy about the club’s recent struggles. Ryan Mason is now the club’s third head coach this season after Antonio Conte and Cristian Stellini were fired in quick succession.
“The chairman asked for a meeting. Obviously, I won’t go into what was said but I think it was important [for Levy] to understand where the players’ heads were at in that moment,” Kane said after the 2-2 draw with Man United in midweek.
“Obviously coming off the back of that [Newcastle] result and it wasn’t just that result, it had been building up since the international break when we conceded the two goals against Southampton.
“It was an honest conversation of where everyone is at and what we need to try to do to give us the best possible chance to finish the season with something. We’re still fighting for fourth place but if it’s not fourth we’ll try to finish fifth or sixth, as high up as we can.
“In this league, it’s so competitive, you can easily end up eighth or ninth if you’re not careful. That’s what it was – to give us the best chance and I’m glad we reacted like that.”
