Antonio Conte clarifies what he has done to motivate Harry Kane to sign a new Tottenham contract

Antonio Conte, the head coach of Tottenham, has expressed his desire for Harry Kane to sign a new contract with the club.

The England captain, who signed a six-year contract in the summer of 2018, is now in the final two years of his current agreement.

The 29-year-old remained at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium despite interest from Manchester City a year ago, and is currently flourishing under Antonio Conte.

With uncertainty surrounding the player’s future, the manager has admitted that for him, the most important thing is for Kane to be very happy and fully invested in Spurs’ season and their project.

“My opinion is only one of a million opinions,” said the 53-year-old. “To force the club, to tell the club ‘sign a new contract for Harry Kane’ because we are talking about a world-class striker and a player who in this moment is the most representative player for Tottenham, no?

“For sure I would like him to sign a new contract. In this moment, for me it is very important to see him happy, totally involved with this season, this project and in what we are doing. For me this is the most important. Then it’s a decision that the player and the club have to take.”

At the beginning of the season, the team appeared increasingly unlikely to qualify for the Champions League. 

However, Conte performed miracles in north London to earn a spot in Europe’s premier competition.

It would appear to be the ideal time for Kane to end rumors about his future and sign a new contract, given how well he has started the season and the current optimism surrounding the club.

“Yeah, the perfect time but you know very well that you create the perfect time with a project,” Conte added. “If also the player understands that there is a right process, that everybody is going in the same direction, I think every single player wants to see this.

“And I think that Harry for sure is happy because he is seeing this type of situation. There is a vision, there is a direction and there is a unity to try to improve the team to be the team at the level of his expectations.”
