Antonio Conte discusses Harry Kane’s Tottenham Hotspur future as ‘rest of career’ claim made

Antonio Conte faced questions about Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham Hotspur with the striker’s contract set to expire in 2024.

Antonio Conte says Tottenham Hotspur want to keep Harry Kane at the club for the remainder of his career with the striker’s contract set to run out at the end of next season.

Kane signed a new six-year contract with the club in the summer of 2018. Manchester City pursued a move for the England international during the 2021 summer window, making a £100m bid for the Spurs star.

However, the club stood firm despite suggestions Kane was open to a move. There were even reports the forward had refused to train but he denied those claims.

He released a statement during the window, insisting: “While I won't go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never, and have never, refused to train."

Since staying in North London, Kane has become the club’s all-time record scorer, surpassing the previous total held by Jimmy Greaves. He has 270 goals but as Tottenham face another season without a trophy, questions have persisted over his future.

“I think that this is a question for the club because for sure the club wants to involve Harry Kane for the rest of his career in my opinion,” said Conte.

“When you have a world class striker like him you want him to stay for the rest of his career.”

Tottenham are in Premier League action on Saturday as they travel to bottom-club Southampton.
