Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur are waging a war of attrition over Harry Kane, but Kane is cautious.
Kane is a Tottenham legend. With 280 career goals for Tottenham, he is the club’s all-time leading scorer, and his 213 goals in the English Premier League (EPL) ranks second all-time. A three-time EPL top scorer, Kane is one of the best strikers in the world today. He’s also a legend for the England national team as their all-time leading scorer. 꽁머니지급
Last season, Kane was just as decisive. Tottenham finished eighth and missed out on qualifying for Europe, but Kane struggled, scoring 30 goals in the league this season. In addition to his goals, Kane was dominant in his playmaking and link-up play in the second line.
The Tottenham living legend has been linked with a move to Munich. The Bavarians are trying to persuade Kane to leave Tottenham with one year left on his contract. The Bavarians have made a £60 million bid for Kane, which was rejected by Tottenham. With a year left on his contract, it’s the right time for Spurs to sell, but they don’t want to sell the club legend at that price.
As part of this, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has set a price of £100 million ($165.2 billion) for the player, indicating that he would consider any offer above that amount.
However, Munich doesn’t intend to stop there. They are reportedly preparing a second, higher offer. According to British publication The Sun, “Munich are set to increase their bid for Kane by £80 million ($132.1 million).” That’s not the ideal price Spurs are looking for, around £100 million, but it’s certainly enough to sway Spurs.
One of the biggest variables is the length of Kane’s contract. Levy has one year left on Kane’s contract, so if he doesn’t sign a new deal and keeps him through next season, he could be forced to let him go without a transfer fee. Therefore, it is clear that this summer is the right time for Levy to sell Kane. Tottenham and Munich are in a constant tug-of-war over Kane’s transfer fee.
Despite the tug of war between the two clubs, the player himself is neither leaving nor staying. Kane, who is currently on vacation, hasn’t made any official comments. “Kane has never communicated his desire to leave to the Tottenham board,” said European football transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano on his YouTube channel, adding that “Tottenham will arrange a meeting between manager Enzi Postecoglou and Kane at the earliest opportunity. Postecoglou clearly has Kane in his plans for the new season. Tottenham will speak to Kane and try to keep him.”
