Tottenham will weigh up £86m bid for Harry Kane from Bayern Munich – with German giants pressing Spurs chairman Daniel Levy for a decision
Bayern hope to reach agreement with Tottenham for Harry Kane this weekend after offering more than £86million.
The German champions have asked Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to make a decision by Saturday morning over Kane’s sale after they increased their bid to a ‘very fair offer’ for the striker, who has one year left on his contract.
Bayern want clarity so they can move on to other targets if their bid is unsuccessful.
It is now down to Levy to decide whether to accept Bayern’s club-record offer of £86.24m plus add-ons, with all parties wanting the situation resolved quickly.
Bayern hope to have Kane in their line-up for next Saturday’s German Super Cup final against RB Leipzig and know the player is eager to accept their challenge and sign a four-year contract worth around £400,000 a week.
If a deal cannot be agreed, Kane is expected to see out the final year of his contract at Tottenham and leave for free next summer.
There have been no indications that Kane, who turned 30 last week, wants to extend his stay at Spurs any longer despite the club’s attempts to persuade him to sign a new deal.
Bayern have discussed returning for Kane in January to sign him for a reduced fee or on a pre-contract for next summer.
Technical director Marco Neppe has been a key figure throughout the negotiations, having met Kane and his family, and travelled with chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen for talks in London with Levy.
He believes Kane is committed to the Bayern project and, with boss Thomas Tuchel’s blessing, is prepared to try again next year if Levy turns them down.
Tottenham have lined up Argentina Under 20 striker Alejo Veliz from Rosario Central and want Nottingham Forest’s Brennan Johnson as they prepare for Kane’s departure. They also expect to sign Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven for £43million.
