HARRY KANE has put Tottenham contract talks on hold until after the World Cup, according to reports.
The striker has around 18 months left on his current Spurs deal.
The North Londoners want to extend Kane’s stay with his boyhood club, but will have to be patient to do so.
According to the Standard, he is yet to begin negotiations over a new deal.
The 29-year-old wanted to leave Tottenham for Manchester City in the summer of 2021, following the arrival of Nuno Espirito Santo.
But after being made to stay, he has started enjoying life at Spurs again under Antonio Conte.
He earns around £200,000 a week at Spurs, with Conte’s side determined not to let him run into the final year of his deal.
Tottenham managing director of football Fabio Paratici is confident that he’ll be able to convince Kane to stay.
Last month, the Italian said: “Kane is the symbol of this club, the best scorer in history and captain of England.
“We are confident and always in contact. There is a great relationship between him and the club, we are very optimistic.”
Kane has enjoyed a brilliant goalscoring start to the season, netting 10 times in 12 Prem appearances.
In addition to their No10, Tottenham also want to agree new deals with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Eric Dier.
Hojbjerg’s current contract expires in 2025, while Dier’s runs out in 2024.
Juventus are eyeing a reunion with their former boss Conte at the end of the season.
The Italian’s Spurs contract expires after this term, although the Lilywhites possess an option to extend it by a further year.
I think this is disrespectful for the coach that works in Juventus and it was disrespectful for me working for Tottenham
They are hoping, however, to convince him to commit to a multi-year deal before then.
While Juve would love to bring back their man, Conte branded links “disrespectful” last month.
He said: “It is incredible in this period. I think this is disrespectful for the coach that works in Juventus and it was disrespectful for me working for Tottenham.
“We have just started the season. Many times I spoke about this topic and I always said I’m happy and enjoying my time with Tottenham.
“Then, we have the whole season to find the best solution for the club, for me.
“For sure, I am enjoying the time to work in Tottenham. I have a great relationship with the owner, with Paratici. I don’t see problems for the future.”
