The expiry of an alleged deadline should have no consequences. As the “Bild” newspaper reports, the transfer negotiations for Harry Kane are entering the next round. But time is pressing.
The transfer poker between FC Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur about wish striker Harry Kane continues. According to a report in the “Bild” newspaper, a decision between the two clubs was postponed again.
The British newspaper “Telegraph” had previously reported that the German record champions had asked Spurs to accept a last offer for the England star on Friday before midnight. Everyone involved had an interest in the issue being clarified as quickly as possible, it said. But now the negotiations are probably going on.
According to media reports, the Spurs expect a transfer fee of at least 100 million euros for their record scorer. According to information from the TV channels “Sky” and “Bild”, Bayern have improved their offer again this week and are now offering the club’s record sum of over 100 million euros for the captain of the English national team.
Should the clubs not come to an agreement, Kane is expected to fulfill his current contract in London and could then leave Tottenham on a free transfer in the summer of 2024. The 30-year-old attacker is said to have ruled out a premature extension long ago. Spurs owner Joe Lewis is said to have instructed club boss Daniel Levy to sell Kane now.
Tottenham’s Premier League season begins on August 13 with an away game at Brentford. Should Kane leave the club by then, a quick replacement for the top scorer would be needed. FC Bayern starts the new Bundesliga season on August 18th at Werder Bremen. The Munich team would like to have Kane in the Supercup next Saturday against DFB Cup winners RB Leipzig.
