Chelsea plan sensational $79m transfer with Tottenham as second bid made for Harry Kane| SolSportHQ
Chelsea transfer news: The latest media briefing with stories and reaction with updates on Harry Kane and Marc Cucurella.
Welcome to the football.london transfer briefing. To help you keep on top of all things Chelsea going on in the market we’ve got the latest noises coming from social media, journalists and so-called ITKs, rounding up what’s what in the world of the Blues.
Marc Cucurella offer
With Hall and Maatsen both younger options that will see themselves as serious candidates deserving of opportunities under Mauricio Pochettino, something has to give in this position. However, having failed so far in west London, to see Tottenham be willing to spend big money on Cucurella would be a surprise.
Harry Kane bid
Bayern Munich have stepped up their attempts to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer. The German giants had an offer for the England captain rejected earlier in the window worth £60million ($77m) plus add-ons but have bumped that up to £68million ($87m) with add-ons.
Seeing Todd Boehly and Levy in the same room discussing a transfer would be funny, but it also wouldn’t lead to much, especially not when it comes to Kane. He is Tottenham’s star man, their forever player and to even think of selling him to Chelsea would be sacrilege.
Bayern have their own challenge ahead to bring Kane in, even if the player does want the move. Chelsea don’t have that advantage.
