Attempts to buy Harry Kane from Tottenham continue. Bayern have already made three offers and got a third refusal. The Spurs authorities are deluded that the clubs will let go, and Kane will convince himself to extend his “employment contract” one more time. Will Kane give up wanting to leave and stay at Tottenham? Will Bayern make a fourth offer to buy the England captain?
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has valued Kane at £120m – despite the fact he has less than a year left on his contract. The Spurs are hoping to convince Kane to sign a contract extension with a release clause before he can leave next summer on a free basis. He, in turn, has set himself a final date for parting with the club. The England captain has set himself a personal deadline that will commit him to Tottenham for a year if a deal with Bayern is not reached before Sunday’s season-opening match against Brentford. This is scheduled for August 13, meanwhile another offer from Bayern for Kane has been rejected by Tottenham.
Tottenham have rejected Bayern Munich’s record bid for Harry Kane. After a lengthy Saturday meeting, Bayern Munich fans were optimistic that an agreement would be reached after a third bid worth €100 million. This bid was both a record for Bayern, well above what they paid for Lucas Hernandez in 2019, and for Tottenham, who sold Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for £85m in 2013. 90min informs you that the answer has been given and remains “no”. Bayern have made it clear that this is their best and final offer but are now debating whether to return with a fourth offer for the England captain.
Bayern again began to consider other options. One option is Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic. Bayern have been in contact with representatives, although Juventus have also been in contact with Chelsea about Romelu Lukaku. Another striker Bayern has been eyeing for a long time is Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani. The next meeting of Bayern’s management is set to revolve around two topics – the next offer to buy Kane and alternative options if it is considered that buying the England captain is indeed an impossible task this year.
The other question is whether English fans would ever agree to sell their captain to anyone outside the Premier League.
