Harry Kane sees his long-term future at Tottenham Hotspur, despite recent speculation linking him with a big-money move to Real Madrid.
Kane has emerged as one of the best talents in European football since forcing his way into the Spurs side last season, and has now registered a half-century of goals in 104 matches in all competitions. Barring injury, he is also almost certain of being named in the England squad for the Euro 2016 Finals, by which time he will surely have added to his eight caps to date.
The 22-year-old is often linked with moves away from Tottenham despite being under contract until the summer of 2020, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United keen admirers. And in recent weeks Real Madrid have also been linked with the striker, yet he has responded to such speculation by insisting he is happy to remain at his current club for the long-term.
“Yes, definitely,” he replied when asked if he sees his long-term future at White Hart Lane. “There are always going to be rumours flying around but I’m happy here. The club is in a good shape, we have a great future and I’m raring to go so we will see what happens. We are getting better and more experienced the more we play and I think we can only get better.”
Real are no strangers to Tottenham when it comes to transfers, having taken Luka Modric and Gareth Bale from the Premier League side in recent years. The latter cost the Spaniards a world record £85million fee back in the summer of 2013, and if they came knocking for Kane, Daniel Levy may well warn them that only a similar figure would even tempt him to listen.
Meanwhile, there was more good news for Spurs after Dele Alli signed a new contract which ties him to the club until the summer of 2021. The young midfielder signed for the Londoners last January but remained at MK Dons on loan for the remainder of the campaign, yet he has already established himself as a key player under Mauricio Pochettino this term.
