Tottenham Hotspur’s star striker Harry Kane may be convinced to sign a new contract if the club re-appoints former manager Mauricio Pochettino, according to TalkSPORT pundit Darren Bent.
With current manager Antonio Conte’s future at Spurs in doubt as his contract ends this season, the team has been linked to a variety of potential new managers since their recent Champions League exit.
The Sun’s chief football writer, Martin Litpon, has suggested that Pochettino may be re-appointed as Tottenham boss if Conte leaves, leading to speculation about Kane’s future with the team.
Bent recently shared his thoughts on TalkSPORT about Kane’s possible decision, stating that he believes Kane does not have a “burning ambition to leave” Tottenham and may be convinced to stay if Pochettino returns. However, the striker is also heading into the final stages of his current contract with Spurs, which is set to run until 2024.
Kane’s future has been the subject of much speculation in the past, and a similar situation could arise this summer. If Tottenham wants to keep their star player, they will need to choose their next manager carefully. Although Pochettino and Kane had a successful five-year run together that saw Kane emerge as one of Europe’s top strikers, it remains to be seen if Pochettino is the right man for the job.
Regardless of Tottenham’s next appointment, Kane is in a strong position regarding his future with the club. Therefore, it is uncertain how much influence the manager’s identity will have on his decision. However, if Pochettino were to return to the club, it could potentially sway Kane’s decision towards staying with Tottenham and signing a new contract.
