Juventus transfer move for Harry Kane could rely on Cristiano Ronaldo contract decision

Juventus are eyeing a shock move for Harry Kane.

Juventus want to sign Tottenham star Harry Kane if Cristiano Ronaldo turns down a new deal at the club, according to the Daily Mail. Ronaldo is set to be offered a deal to stay at the club until after his 39th birthday.

Juventus are set to offer Ronaldo a mega new contract, which would keep him at the club for another two years.

His current contract expires in 2022, and so far there has been no indication that he will leave any time soon.

Despite tentative links with Inter Miami, it seems unlikely that he will leave the Old Lady before the end of his current deal.

But regardless, Juve want to extend his stay in Italy, having hit the ground running at the Allianz Arena.

If he does decide to look elsewhere, however, it has been reported that Juve want Kane as his replacement.

The Tottenham striker has recently been linked with a move away from north London, with Manchester United and Manchester City both interested.

The England captain is said to be considering a move away from Spurs in the summer after another year without any silverware.

Spurs crashed out of the FA Cup and Champions League within the space of six days earlier this month, and only have the top four to aim for in the Premier League.

If the league season returns from the coronavirus exodus, Spurs will have a four-point deficit to overhaul if they want to qualify for the Champions League.

They are currently sat in eighth spot, and have a difficult task on their hands to get into the top five.

Should Manchester City’s european ban remain in place next season, the team in fifth place will secure Champions League qualification.

Therefore, Spurs only have to get into fifth place to qualify for the Champions League and avoid a first season without competing in the tournament since 2015/16.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo is under self-isolation after it emerged that team-mate Daniele Rugani tested positive for coronavirus.

In a statement on Instagram, Ronaldo confirmed he was well, but sent his best wishes to Rugani.

“The world is going through a very difficult moment which demands the utmost care and attention from all of us,” he wrote.

“I would like to send my thoughts to everyone who has lost someone close to them, my solidarity to those who are fighting the virus, like my team-mate Daniele Rugani, and my continued support to the amazing health professionals putting their own lives at risk to save others.”
