Conte makes clear his Kane plan as ex-Chelsea boss holds talks with Tottenham
Antonio Conte may already have a plan in place to keep hold of Harry Kane as he closes in on becoming the new Tottenham manager.
The Italian left Inter Milan last month after falling out with the owners, who insisted on selling star players to balance the books.
With Spurs scrambling to find a manager of their own, they have now turned to the ex-Chelsea boss.
It comes as their efforts to land a successor to Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in April, continues with a number of failed attempts.
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy has also been given an added incentive to find the right man to replace 'The Special One' after it emerged that Kane wants to leave in the summer transfer window.
After a poor season in the Premier League which saw all their domestic rivals improve, the England international is concerned that his career will flitter by without the chance to land a top piece of silverware.
However, with Conte at the helm, Kane might feel more inclined to stay – with the feisty Italian a proven winner at every club he has been at.
In 2017, the Lecce-born tactician had just won the Premier League with Chelsea – a year after they had finished 10th in the table – and he was desperate to sign the Spurs frontman.
He told The Guardian: “Tottenham is a really good squad if they are able to keep all the players.

“For me, Kane, now, is one of the best strikers in the world. If I had to buy one striker I would go to Kane. He is a complete striker.
“He is strong physically, with the ball, without the ball, he fights and he’s strong in the air and acrobatic on the right and the left. He’s a complete player. He’s one of the top strikers in the world."
For Kane, the arrival of Conte might be exactly what he needs – a manager who is an expert on getting clubs in a dim situation back into the limelight, with some trophies along the way.
And that would be music to Tottenham fans' ears – who realise that without their main man, it could be a dark period for Spurs.
