A year after he failed to force a move to Manchester City, Harry Kane is now optimistic about his future at Tottenham.
The forward scored his 50th international goal against Germany on Tuesday night. He scored a late penalty to keep the game tied, which moved him past Sir Bobby Charlton and into second place on England’s all-time list of top scorers.
Now, Kane only needs four more goals to beat Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 and move to the top of the list. And as he gets closer to being immortal, he has changed a lot about how he feels about things at home.
Kane is said to be optimistic about his team’s chances of finally winning at Tottenham. Spurs’ return to the Champions League after Antonio Conte took over has excited the 28-year-old player, who now thinks he can reach his goals with the Italian coach.
Kane told the club a year ago that he wanted to leave, so everyone expected him to push for a move again this summer.
But as of now, Spurs don’t expect a repeat of last year’s transfer drama. Kane might not be sold this summer because there doesn’t seem to be a clear buyer for him.
Erling Haaland has already joined Manchester City, and Liverpool’s main goal is to sign Darwin Nunez. The other three teams that still need to qualify for the Champions League are Ajax, Schalke, and Schalke. And Daniel Levy, the leader of Spurs, would never sell Kane to Chelsea.
Manchester United has been interested in Kane for a long time, but it doesn’t look like he will join a club that plays in the Europa League.
His current contract has two more years to go, and sources have told Sportsmail that talks about a new contract have not yet begun.
But right now, it looks like Kane will stay for at least another season, and his resurgence under Conte has given Spurs more hope that they can convince their star player to finish his career with the team.
Kane is focusing on England’s last two games of the summer for now.
But he is likely to be rested for Saturday’s game against Italy. Manager Gareth Southgate has said that he will rest his captain and give Tammy Abraham a chance to show why he should be Kane’s back-up.
Kane wants to play against the European champions. He told Southgate, “I want to play every game I can. He knows that.”
But Southgate is unlikely to start Kane, who has played every minute of both of this month’s Nations League games and has played 60 games for club and country this season.
Last week, Sportsmail reported that England manager Southgate wanted to give Roma striker Abraham a chance to show what he could do. With the World Cup coming up, Southgate is worried about the lack of center-forward options behind Kane.
Southgate said, “It’s clear that we have to look out for the players’ well-being.” “Harry is also a great worker because of how well he takes care of himself.
“I’m not sure he’ll get his wish to start all four games, because we also want to see how Tammy does,” I said.
Southgate is likely to make a lot of changes for the Italy game, which will be played behind closed doors at Molineux as a punishment for the violent scenes at the Euros final at Wembley last summer.
In addition to Abraham, central defender Marc Guehi is also expected to play after missing the games against Hungary and Germany.
Reece James, who didn’t play in Munich, will be hoping to play since Trent Alexander-Arnold is likely to be released from Liverpool after his long season there.
Also, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is likely to be given a break, either against Italy or in the game on Tuesday against Hungary. This could give Aaron Ramsdale or Nick Pope a chance to play.
