Jamie Redknapp, an ex-Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, has stated that he would not be surprised if Harry Kane signed a contract extension in the near future.
Kane’s time at N17 has been filled with ups and downs over the last year or so.
He had pushed for a move to Manchester City last summer, but it did not happen (Sky Sports), and his form suffered as a result until Antonio Conte took over as manager.
Kane’s current contract expires in two years, with Tottenham increasingly optimistic about a renewal (The Athletic). Having said that, it has already been revealed that neither party is in a hurry to reach an agreement at the moment (90min).
Meanwhile, after losing Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona this summer, Bayern Munich has publicly expressed interest in signing Kane.
Manager Julian Nagelsmann and their top brass have hinted that the England captain could be targeted in the future (Sky Sports).
Despite this, Redknapp believes Kane will sign a new contract with Conte’s side and commit to a long-term future in the next six months or less.
Redknapp said on The Sky Sports Football Podcast: “Harry Kane now, instead of last year thinking he needs to go if he wants to show any ambition.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he signs a new contract with that club in the next six months, or even less, because he looks at it and believes he can win there.”
It’s his club, and the fans adore him, as I can see now. If you had told me that a year ago, I would have said no way, but everything is now in place for him to achieve his goals.”

Despite this, a new contract is unlikely to be signed before the 2022 Qatar World Cup. After all, Kane would probably prefer not to be distracted by too many thoughts, which is understandable.
The club may also recognize his situation and give him some breathing room before engaging in contract negotiations. As a result, significant progress is unlikely to be made until after the World Cup later this year.
