Kane could commit rest of his career to Tottenham after intriguing update - Robinson
Harry Kane would be committing the rest of his career to Tottenham if he signed a new deal even if it includes a release clause.
That is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 28-year-old’s contract situation in north London.
Kane has three years remaining on his current deal with Spurs.
According to Eurosport (14th September), the striker would consider signing a new contract if it includes a release clause.
It comes after a summer in which Manchester City failed with two bids of over £100million for the England captain.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his thoughts on Kane signing a new deal, Robinson said:

“Financially, Harry would be rewarded and paid what he should be in regards to the rest of the Premier League. We know the wage structure at Spurs is different to everywhere else and Kane would be on bigger wages if he was at one of the other big clubs in England.
“If he signs a new four-year deal, that should be it and done because he is 28. I don’t think you need a release clause in a contract at that age.
“The release clause would be astronomical. It would be something like £150million and if Man City weren’t willing to pay that for a 27-year-old Harry Kane why would they pay it for a 28-year-old Harry Kane?
“I don’t see the value in there being a release clause for the player if the release clause was to be around that amount. It would probably be a better deal for the club.”
