Despite rumors of Harry Kane’s (30) transfer, Kane’s relationship with Son Heung-min (31), who stands tall as the best attacking duo in English Premier League history, is expected to continue. Kane, whose contract with Tottenham expires in June 2024, is considering renewing his contract.
The British ‘Athletic’ quoted Kane’s remarks on the 25th and reported that contract renewal negotiations with Tottenham would begin in the near future. “I’m sure talks (renewal) will start in a few months,” Kane said. “I want to focus on this season. There is still a lot of work to be done to qualify for the European Champions League. We have to win the Champions League and the FA Cup,” he said. As a result, the recently reported rumors of interest in Manchester United are expected to subside again.
Kane’s remarks are at the level of principle, but they are eye-catching in that they mentioned his contract renewal itself. He, who has yet to lift the trophy at Tottenham, has suspended negotiations for his renewal after August 2021.
“I still want to win at Tottenham,” Kane said. It’s my goal since entering the Tottenham first team,” he said. “Unfortunately, I couldn’t achieve that goal, but I’m still working hard to win. We have a really good squad and a great manager. There is no reason why it can’t be successful.”
If Kane remains at Tottenham, we can see the ‘Son-Ke Duo’, which is recording the most joint goals in Premier League history, for at least two more years. Son Heung-min’s contract expires in June 2025. It also means that the two players in their 30s will spend their prime side by side.
Kane is in the limelight as an all-around player, not only in goal hunting, but also in passing, vision, and kicking power. Son Heung-min also boasts goal determination and kicking power regardless of the main or weak foot based on his quick feet.
Last season, when the two players were at their peak, they often showed the scoring formula, where Kane stabbed an exquisite pass and Son Heung-min dug into the back space to finish.
Recently, Son Heung-min’s orbital fracture injury and sluggishness overlap, so he can’t show the same performance as in previous years, but the two of them are still breathing. In the game against Fulham on the 24th, Kane scored the winning goal to win 1-0 with the help of Son Heung-min. It was the 44th goal the two players jointly scored in the league and the 51st joint goal in official matches such as the European Champions League. 먹튀검증
