Manchester City are unlikely to chase Harry Kane again in 2022 and he could sign a contract extension with Tottenham…
- Harry Kane’s proposed move to Manchester City fell through this summer
- Spurs chief Daniel Levy wouldn’t budge on his £150m valuation of Kane
- City are reportedly looking at other goals now and Kane can join Spurs . stay
- The striker’s representatives will demand a released clause in any deal
Harry Kane won’t make the mistake of signing his future away from Daniel Levy without another breakout clause, but he may have already missed the boat to Manchester City.
The England captain was ready to finally ditch the Spurs and move to a top European club this summer.
City were desperate for Kane to replace legendary frontman Sergio Aguero and personal terms were discussed, but Levy blocked the move by standing firm on his £150m valuation.

The Premier League champions finally had to give up and plan to try again
The Premier League champions have settled for £100million man Jack Grealish instead, and they are not planning another bid for Kane in 2022, according to Eurosport.
Kane is led by his brother Charlie, who was described by Simon Jordan this summer as ‘not fit for purpose’.
Signing a six-year contract with Spurs – with no breakout clause – on the eve of a 2018 World Cup in which Kane would become top scorer was a strange decision then, but now seems madness.
It could well be the biggest mistake of Kane’s career as he is still waiting for silverware at a club that only finished seventh last year, has changed managers again and is playing in the third tier of European competition.

Spurs failed to set Kane for a single shot at Crystal Palace and things need to improve soon
Daniel Levy very rarely hands out release clauses to his players, but Kane will have to be an exception as he doesn’t want the businessman still deciding his future at 31.
The striker has yet to get off the ground in the Premier League after three games this season, and although Spurs led the Premier League before last weekend, their defeat at Crystal Palace showed worrying signs.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side lost 3-0 at Selhurst Park, and the lack of creativity from Spurs will be of most concern to Kane.
The Englishman did not have a single shot on target and not even a touch in the penalty area after he was starving.
After being forced to stay this summer, Kane could lead to a breaking point in 2021-22 if Santos’ side doesn’t improve.
