SPORT: FootballHarry Kane demands Conte’s retention to stay at Tottenham.

HARRY KANE wants assur­ances that Anto­nio Con­te will be sup­port­ed in the trans­fer mar­ket before com­mit­ting his future to Tottenham.

The 28-year-old Eng­lish skip­per will decide at the end of this sea­son whether to stay after try­ing to leave last sum­mer in pur­suit of trophies.

He is now hap­pi­er and more open to the prospect of stay­ing at his boy­hood club fol­low­ing Con­te’s arrival in November.

Kane believes ser­i­al win­ner Con­te can help Spurs end a 14-year tro­phy drought.

But he will expect chair­man Daniel Levy to ensure they intend to bring in the qual­i­ty new sign­ings Con­te wants before decid­ing his own future.

If Kane thinks the club aren’t ready to back his boss, the leader will like­ly try to walk away again.

The Tot­ten­ham tal­is­man had told Levy he want­ed to leave with the aim of win­ning titles — with Man­ches­ter City his dream destination.

Eti­had chiefs were ready to dou­ble his salary to 480,000 euros per week.

But the sum­mer move did­n’t hap­pen when Levy refused to accept less than £191m for his star play­er — who is under con­tract until 2024.

Ear­li­er this month he said he enjoyed work­ing under Ital­ian main­stay Con­te and had nev­er felt in bet­ter shape, sug­gest­ing he was con­sid­er­ing stay­ing at Spurs.

Kane cer­tain­ly looks sharp­er and plays again with a smile on his face.

But he nev­er hid his desire to win tro­phies and titles.

And if Tot­ten­ham don’t match his and the man­ager’s ambi­tions, then the star will almost cer­tain­ly look to move elsewhere.

Despite just five of Kane’s 21 goals for club and coun­try this com­ing term in the Prem, there would be no short­age of offers for him.

Man­ches­ter Unit­ed have always been keen to bring him to Old Trafford.

And that inter­est would increase if his for­mer Spurs boss, Mauri­cio Pochet­ti­no, cur­rent­ly man­ag­er of Paris Saint-Ger­main, were to take over at the Red Dev­ils this summer.
