Despite not receiving any assurances regarding Kane’s future from the club, Postecoglou revealed that Kane is eagerly looking forward to reporting back to the club on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old forward whose contract with Spurs has entered its final year has attracted significant interest from Bayern Munich, with the German club having reportedly submitted a second bid, estimated to be around £70 million.

Postecoglou acknowledged the impending discussions with Kane, emphasizing that his aim is to convince the talented striker to stay at Tottenham by ensuring the team’s success.

“Harry has already entrenched himself in the history of this football club”, the manager said.

“He’s a very important part. He’s one of the premier strikers in the world and I want him involved. My conversation with him will be about how we can make this club successful. And I’ve got no doubts that what he wants as well.”

“So within that context, [perhaps] that narrows into the personal stuff around Harry as an individual. If the conversation takes it that way then we’ll take it that way.”

“But I doubt it’s going to be defined in the manner that people think it’s going to be. It’s not going to be a conversation where we walk out of the room and have an understanding.”

“I don’t want that kind of conversation, what I want is to introduce myself to Harry and give him my vision of the football club.”

“And get a sense from him on what he thinks the club needs to do to be successful and walk out on that training pitch and try and make it happen.”

Asked if he had had any assurances over Kane’s future, Postecoglou said,

“I haven’t had any assurances and I wouldn’t expect any assurances, because when you’re dealing with these kind of things you’re never dealing with definites or certainties in anything in life.”

“What I know right now is that Harry is part of this squad and he’s looking forward to coming back to training and being amongst these players and starting to work together.”

“If I spend too much time worrying about the impact it might have either way, I’m going to miss trying to build a team because ultimately that’s what’s going to make us successful, if we build a team that plays football a certain way.”

“That’s going to be it. I’m not going to miss this initial opportunity to lay down what I think is going to be important in the long-term. What’s going to be important in the long-term goes beyond individuals. It’s more about overriding philosophy about who we want to be as a team and the key people within that.”
