Bayern Munich has upped the ante in their pursuit of Harry Kane by submitting an enhanced bid to Tottenham for the prolific England forward.
Having acknowledged the difficulty in finding a suitable replacement for Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich has made Harry Kane their primary target for the upcoming transfer window.
Considering Harry Kane’s contract situation and the fact that he will be a free agent in a year’s time, Bayern Munich sees him as a feasible and enticing target. However, they face competition from Manchester United, who also have an eye on the English striker.
The excessive demands made by Spurs co-owner Daniel Levy became a major obstacle for Manchester United in their pursuit of Harry Kane, resulting in them having to give up on the deal.
With Manchester United’s interest fading, Bayern Munich made an initial offer of €70m (£60m) plus potential add-ons to secure the services of the 29-year-old forward.
Despite the initial rejection, Bayern Munich remains undeterred and has come back with an improved offer of €80m (£68m) for Harry Kane, according to Sky in Germany.
The reported price tag set by Tottenham for Harry Kane’s sale is around £100m, but the final decision may also depend on the player’s wishes.
Sources indicate that Harry Kane has expressed his keenness to make a switch to the Allianz Arena with Bayern Munich.
It has been alleged that Harry Kane and Bayern Munich have reached a confidential agreement on personal terms, conducted privately without the knowledge of Tottenham Hotspur.
The potential move has garnered increased attention as the footballing world holds its breath.
With a reputation as a prolific scorer, the player’s time at Tottenham Hotspur has been characterized by the unfortunate lack of championship success.
