Harry Kane is only likely to commit his long-term future to Tottenham if they qualify for the Champions League, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The 28-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City last summer but the Premier League champions failed to match Spurs’s asking price. Since then, though, Antonio Conte has been appointed head coach at the London club. Romano says that the England captain is happy with the progress being made under the Italian but European qualification will be the determining factor in whether he stays beyond the end of his contract in 2024:
Harry Kane’s understood to be ‘more than happy’ with Conte. Completely different feelings than last June – although no final decision on the future has yet been made. ⚪️ #THFC

City will be in the market for a striker at the end of the season, but most sources now believe that Erling Haaland will be the main target for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Other teams, such as PSG, Manchester United and Chelsea, have also considered making a move for Kane in the past but, as things stand, it seems increasingly likely he’ll remain at Tottenham, as long as they begin to deliver on the pitch under Conte.
