Tottenham has rejected Bayern Munich’s ambitious £85 million bid for their star striker, Harry Kane. The Premier League club stands firm, demanding no less than £100 million for the England captain, despite his contract having only 11 months left.
Executives from Bayern Munich, including CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen and technical director Marco Neppe, engaged in discussions with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy on Monday to explore the possibility of a deal. However, the reported second offer of £85 million from Bayern has been firmly rebuffed by Levy, who emphasized that any offer below the £100 million mark would not be entertained.
Thomas Tuchel’s side appears eager to secure Kane’s services, and they are reportedly willing to increase their offer to £90 million. Nevertheless, Tottenham remains resolute in their stance to hold out for their asking price.
While Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United have also been linked to the prolific striker, a transfer to PSG seems unlikely, and Manchester United seems focused on signing Atalanta BC’s Rasmus Hojlund.
As the summer transfer window progresses, the eyes of football fans are firmly fixed on Harry Kane’s future. The forward’s extraordinary goal-scoring prowess, with 213 Premier League goals to his name and 280 goals for Tottenham overall, makes him a prized asset in the market.
For now, the situation remains uncertain, and Kane’s availability for Tottenham’s Premier League opener against Brentford on August 13 hangs in the balance. The club is preparing for the new season with a friendly against Shakhtar Donetsk and the Joan Gamper Trophy final against Barcelona.
With both Tottenham and Bayern Munich holding their ground, it remains to be seen how this high-stakes transfer saga will unfold. Stay tuned for further updates as the clock ticks down on the summer transfer window!
