Bayern Munich submit formal offer for Harry Kane: how much it is? What is Tottenham’s asking price?
Manchester United are also interested in the England captain, but Real Madrid are unlikely to enter the bidding this summer.
Bayern Munich have submitted a formal offer to Tottenham Hotspur for star striker Harry Kane, The Athletic’s football correspondent David Ornstein has revealed. The 29-year-old is going into the final year of his contract with the Premier League club and will be available on a free transfer in 2024.
The England captain, the all-time top goalscorer for club and country, looks set to move on this summer, with the arrival of Celtic’s Ange Postecoglu as manager unlikely to change his mind over extending his deal.
Goals but no trophies for Kane at Spurs
Despite Kane’s hugely impressive goalscoring figures (213 goals in 317 Premier League games), the attacker has been left frustrated by Spurs’ inability to win – and even challenge for – trophies on a regular basis.
The North London side finished second when Leicester City won the English top flight back in 2015/16 and were Champions League runners-up to Liverpool in 2018/19 but finished all the way down in eighth place in the Premier League last season, despite Kane’s 30 goals.
On the face of it, a move to Bayern would almost guarantee a domestic title (the Bavarians have won the Bundesliga for 11 seasons running), while they will again be expecting to challenge for the Champions League, especially if they can add an elite-level goalscorer to their roster.
Bayern bid for Kane “will be rejected”
The German giants have submitted a bid of €70 million plus add-ons, which Ornstein’s The Athletic colleague Charlie Eccleshare, the outlet’s Spurs correspondent, says will not be enough.
“It will be rejected. As with 2021, it all comes down to whether a team is prepared to pay what Spurs are asking”.
How much do Spurs want for Kane?
There have been differing reports regarding just how much Tottenham would be willing to accept, although the general consensus is that it is unlikely to be much less than €100 million. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has become known as a notoriously touch negotiator and will undoubtedly double down when faced with the threat of losing the club’s most important player.
Kane is also a rumoured target for Manchester United and had previously been linked with Real Madrid, although the LaLiga side have said they aren’t planning on doing any more transfer business this summer unless a top-level player become available at a bargain price, which will almost certainly not be the case with Kane.
