Bayern Munich has finally admitted that they would not be able to negotiate a trade of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur at the price they had hoped. But, the Bundesliga powerhouses will make a deal a priority this summer.
Apparently Bayern Munich is keeping a close eye on Tottenham’s efforts to persuade Kane to sign a new deal, as reported by 90min. At the conclusion of the current season, the 29-year-old will enter the last 12 months of his current £200k-a-week contract.
If Spurs are unable to convince Kane to sign with them before the summer, Der FCB will make an effort to sign him. Those in charge at Allianz Arena in Bavaria have their sights set on signing the striker. Eric Maxim Choupo-contract Moting’s was extended for a another year on Friday, but that won’t deter them.
Choupo-Moting, who was set to become a free agent at the conclusion of the current season, has instead signed a one-year deal. Yet next year, Bayern Munich’s best assault would have both Kane and the 33-year-old. After Robert Lewandowski left, the Cameroonian has risen up.
Kane is worth what Barcelona spent for Lewandowski, but Bayern Munich only rated him at roughly €50m (£44m) at first. Since the England captain is five years younger than the Pole, Allianz Arena officials have accepted the reality that Tottenham will never sell the striker for that price.
According to The Telegraph, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is open to offers from international clubs for Kane that are less than £100 million. But, he is hesitant to lower that price for a Premier League team. Manchester United reportedly wants him, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Kane’s stellar play so far this season has also helped keep Levy’s high asking price in place. The 80-cap England ace, whom Paul Merson describes as “phenomenal,” has scored 18 goals and assisted on two more in 25 Premier League games. He has scored 20 goals and assisted on four more in 35 appearances across all competitions. Kane has played seven times in the Champions League, scoring once. Spurs will be hoping he can add to that total next Wednesday, when AC Milan comes to town for the second leg of their Round of 16 matchup. As of right now, Bayern Munich has a 1-0 lead against Paris Saint-Germain.
