For months, Harry Kane has been traded as FC Bayern’s desired transfer for the coming season. Another top club is said to have significantly better cards on a commitment from the Tottenham Hotspur attacker.
Will Harry Kane come to Bayern or stay on the island? The bidding for the captain of the England national team is starting to heat up.
Only one thing is certain: the 29-year-old striker is still reluctant to extend his contract with Tottenham Hotspur, which expires in 2024. So the upcoming summer transfer phase could be the last big chance for the Spurs to cash in on Kane.
According to the latest English media reports, it is not FC Bayern that currently has the best cards, but Manchester United.
According to the “Daily Mirror”, Tottenham boss Daniel Levy would be reluctant to give up his record scorer to a league competitor.
However, the Red Devils seem willing to take more financial risks than the club from Säbener Straße.
Is FC Bayern really hesitant to bid for Harry Kane?
According to the report, Tottenham want a transfer fee of around 113 million euros for Kane should he decide against a contract with the Londoners. A price that might be too high for FC Bayern.
“There are two aspects at stake here: Can we afford such a transfer – and do we want to afford such a transfer? Basically, I don’t rule out anything in life,” answered Dr. Michael Diederich, Munich’s new chief financial officer since April 1, in the current Bayern member magazine “51” when asked whether the club was willing to spend 100 million euros on a player.
Diederich’s hesitation is interpreted by the English press as a clear advantage for United – even if Bayern are ready to surpass their personal record fee of 80 million euros for defensive star Lucas Hernández from 2019.
In any case, Manchester coach Erik ten Hag continues to insist on a striker of world-class format, it was said.
