Spurs Decline Bayern’s €100m Bid for Kane
Tottenham Hotspur has declined Bayern Munich’s latest offer for striker Harry Kane, according to various sources. It remains uncertain if the German club will make another bid for the English player, as their previous offer was considered the maximum they were willing to pay, and they were growing tired of Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s tough negotiation tactics.
With less than a week remaining before the start of the 2023-24 Premier League season, it appears increasingly likely that Harry Kane will participate. “The Athletic” reports that Tottenham has rejected Bayern Munich’s most recent proposal for the English striker.
This was Bayern Munich’s third offer after their bids in June and July were both turned down. It was widely believed that this latest offer would be their final attempt. Bayern Munich had no intention of making another offer.
Although Tottenham believes there is still a valuation gap for the striker, Bayern Munich’s last offer exceeded €100 million, including additional payments. The offer had a Friday midnight deadline, but Tottenham did not pay attention to it.
Harry Kane has only one year left on his contract with Tottenham, and now that he has rejected Bayern Munich, the possibility of him leaving for free next summer is very real if the club fails to persuade him to renew his contract.
Tottenham included Kane in their pre-season tour, and they are preparing to begin their league season against Brentford on August 13th. Following a 5-1 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in a friendly match over the weekend, during which Kane scored four goals, manager Ange Postecoglou acknowledged that he was in active discussions with the striker.
