Bayern Munich has made headlines with their second and improved bid of €80m to secure the services of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur. However, reports suggest that Spurs are poised to reject this latest offer as well, according to respected journalist Dave Hytner from The Guardian.
The increased bid, which includes additional add-ons and represents a €10m boost over Bayern’s initial proposal, is unlikely to sway Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s stance on selling Kane. While the club has yet to provide an official response to the bid, Hytner states that it is highly probable that Spurs will once again turn it down, with Levy publicly maintaining his position of refusing to part ways with Kane under any circumstances.

However, we are all aware that in the realm of love, war, and transfer windows, statements like “under any circumstances” often hold little weight. Tottenham is putting up a front, publicly expressing their willingness to offer Kane an astronomical wage in a bid to persuade him to extend his contract. They are also hoping that a successful season ahead will convince him not to let his deal run down, potentially leaving on a free transfer. Meanwhile, the German media continues to fuel speculation with fervent reports claiming that Kane has already agreed to personal terms with Bayern and is eager to join them this summer.
The reality, though, is that Kane is not obligated to take any action at all. It seems that signing a new contract with Spurs is probably his third preference, with a move to Bayern or simply staying put being more likely choices. This puts Tottenham’s public posturing in a precarious position, as Levy, known for his ruthlessness in the transfer market, takes a gamble.
Kane is set to return for preseason training on Wednesday and will likely meet with newly appointed head coach Ange Postecoglou on the same day. It remains uncertain whether this meeting will alter the dynamics of the situation, but it is safe to assume that the saga surrounding Kane’s future will dominate the headlines throughout the long and drawn-out summer transfer window. The speculation might persist until September 1, and potentially even beyond that. Get the latest updates from the Premier League only on Gclub Sports.
