In the search for a new striker, FC Bayern has been closely associated with Tottenham’s Harry Kane for months. Recently, rumors have been circulating that Munich would be willing to pay more than 100 million euros for the 29-year-old Englishman. According to current reports, however, Bayern would have to sell a player profitably for a transfer of this magnitude. Accordingly, Serge Gnabry could make room for Kane.
The “tz” reported this week that the Bayern bosses would be willing to dig deep into their pockets to lure Harry Kane to the Isar. According to the newspaper, even a transfer fee of 100 million euros would be possible.
According to “BILD” football boss Christian Falk, this scenario is very unrealistic. Although Kane is still an issue within FCB, those responsible at Säbener Straße are not willing to spend so much money on the English international: “100 million euros, that’s not possible with Bayern. That’s too much for them,” he explained in the “Bayern Insider” podcast. This is mainly because Kane is only contractually bound to Tottenham Hotspur until 2024.
Bayern would have to “sacrifice” an offensive star for Kane
Even if Bayern were willing to pay such a fee for Kane, you would first have to sell an offensive player like Serge Gnabry or Leroy Sane for a profit. However, both are not candidates for sale with the German record champions. Gnabry, in particular, is anything but a sales guarantee in view of his strong performance fluctuations in recent months.
From Falk’s point of view, a Kane transfer to FCB is only possible if the player himself expresses a clear desire to leave Spurs for Munich in the summer and thus reduce the transfer fee. Just like Bayern did successfully with Matthijs de Ligt and Sadio Mané.
