an oral contract requires an agreement by both parties

I would argue that there was no contract only a negotiation that did not result in contract

you stated 10 years and he wanted 10 + 10

in my opinion, no contract

If he will not leave and the lease is expired then give him notice to vacate and then start eviction process

confirm with your attorney that no contract was reached

from what you have said No contact in my opinion
