According to a report from L’Équipe tonight, Bayern Munich is anticipated to step up their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur forward and England international Harry Kane (29). The Bavarian giants prioritise the 29-year-old to replace the vacuum left by Robert Lewandowski’s transfer to Barcelona last year.
Two offers totaling €70 million and €80 million have apparently previously been turned down by Tottenham from the Bundesliga champions. Kane is also said to have given the go-ahead for a move to Germany. The Allianz Arena’s coaching staff, led by Thomas Tuchel, apparently appeals to Tottenham’s all-time leading scorer. In fact, Kane reportedly told the former Chelsea and PSG coach that, should he leave North London, he would only play for Bayern. With the team coached by Ange Postecoglou, Kane is entering the last year of his current deal.
According to L’Équipe, Tuchel would like to bring back Bayern’s storied 4-2-3-1 configuration with Kane up front because Munich would provide the perfect setting for the forward to add to his collection of accolades. The only trophies the England captain has collected with Tottenham are the 2019 Audi Cup and the 2018 International Champions Cup.
From the victorious German team’s perspective, this summer will be Kane or nothing. According to reports, the Bayern management plans to make Tottenham an offer of between €90m and €95m for their prized asset. L’Équipe is aware that the Rekordmeister are, for the first time in their history, willing to pay more than €100 million for the talented English striker. According to the French media, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who rejoined the Bayern board, is doing all in his power to persuade Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to approve Kane’s international move.
