Harry Kane’s move to Bayern Munich is still in limbo following a move by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy that has been described as “crazy” in the transfer market.
“Kane has canceled his flight as Tottenham want to renegotiate with Bayern Munich,” Sky Sports Germany reported on Wednesday (Nov. 11).
Kane’s transfer saga seemed to be coming to a close.
“Kane has decided to join Bayern Munich,” The Athletic’s David Onstead said on Nov. 11. German outlet Bild reported that “Kane has asked Tottenham for permission to undergo a medical to join Munich.”
European soccer transfer expert Fabrizio Romano also said that “Kane, Bayern Munich and Tottenham have all completed negotiations,” adding, “Tottenham are determined to receive the total transfer fee of €120 million ($174.7 billion) offered by Bayern Munich. Kane will undergo a medical in the coming days.”
Earlier, local media in England reported that Bayern Munich and Tottenham had finalized a deal for Kane.
The Athletic reported on Tuesday that Bayern Munich have agreed a deal with Tottenham to sign Harry Kane.
“Bayern Munich’s offer is worth more than €100 million ($144.9 million) and Tottenham have accepted it,” the publication, which was informed by German sources, reported.
“Now Kane has to decide whether he wants to move or not,” the source said, adding that the player can decide where he wants to live. “Kane is understood to be happy with Tottenham’s new boss, Enze Postecoglou, and is keen to stay.”
In the end, however, Kane decided to leave Tottenham for Bayern Munich and will undergo a medical.
In the meantime, the Bavarians have made a £100 million bid, but Tottenham have repeatedly rejected it. 꽁머니사이트
“Kane is expecting his future to be decided this weekend, with Bayern Munich offering Tottenham a £86m ($144.3m) transfer fee,” said The Sun. “Bayern Munich are hoping the deal will be resolved by the weekend. With a further option of £17 million ($28.3 billion), Bayern Munich’s offer exceeds £100 million.”
The Bavarians have been active in their pursuit of Kane, making three bids for him this summer, all of which were rejected by Tottenham.
Despite the rejection, Bayern Munich did not give up. The club’s top brass traveled to London and held talks with chairman Daniel Levy.
With the Premier League kicking off on the 13th, it was expected to be difficult for Bayern Munich to sign Kane, but they are close to making a move.
The reason why Tottenham suddenly accepted Bayern’s offer is the length of Kane’s contract.
