Harry Kane’s transfer saga weaves a new tale as club Chairman Daniel Levy is furious and angry over the striker as he has reportedly held some transfer talks with German champions Bayern Munich. Bayern has identified Kane as their top priority this summer and would look to reach any extent for signing the star.
Daniel Levy vexed at his star striker
Harry Kane has been one of the record scorers for both his club and country over the years. His talent and attacking prowess is the talk of the town over the years, as the English striker looks to emulate his exploits through every season. The 29-year old forward has hinted on a potential exit this summer but has jolted on his options as Real Madrid and Manchester United has looked to weigh down from signing him. Real has stepped down apparently as they are dedicated to go for a big signing in the form of Mbappe in the next season, and United, with the addition of Mason Mount, would not go for a record signing in the attack.
Bayern has opted for Kane and he has been on their radar since weeks. But, it is Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy who has been dreading the loss of his favorite striker, as the trophy drought would have tempted Kane to look out for options.
Meeting leaves Levy furious
After Tottenham and board had rejected Bayern’s initial offer for Kane, it is reported that Bayern boss and former UEFA Champions League winner with Chelsea Thomas Tuchel has visited Harry Kane in his London home, which has left Levy furious with the attitude of the player. According to German outlet ‘Bild’, Levy, after knowing about the secret rendezvous between Kane and Tuchel, has expressed his angst as he wants to keep his favorite player in the club for one more season.
It is reported that Levy and his board has offered a lucrative deal to Kane in order to keep the striker in the club for a lengthy duration, but then striker is least tempted to don the Tottenham colors for one more year. Bayern has indicated that 85 million euros for the star would be too much as board member Uli Hoeness reported to Abendzeitung, “I think the transfer is totally crazy. He’s a great player, no question about it, but these are amounts that I would never pay as president.”
“It would be crazy”
Later speaking to another news outlet Sky Deutschland, Hoeness explained, “I’m one of nine members on the supervisory board who have a say in the executive committee when it comes to large expenses of over €25m (£21m). I can imagine that, one day, a player would go to Bayern who costs around €100m, but I’ve already given my opinion on the Kane case. He’s almost 30 years old and last year, Tottenham rejected Manchester City’s €160m (£136m) offer. I said it would be crazy if Bayern approached such a transfer.”
Reportedly, Spurs had rejected a monstrous bid from City last year and Hoeness says, “I would give my private opinion. I’m one of nine and if the other eight say he’s going to be bought, then he’s going to be bought. That’s how it is in a democracy.”
Harry Kane has been tight-lipped regarding his future when he was asked about his transfer saga on the last day of the season. He was heard speaking to BT Sport, “No, no. That’s part and parcel of being a footballer – especially when you’re at the top of your game. I’ve just been focusing on this season and trying to help the team as much as possible. To score a couple today was nice, to finish that way, but all in all I’m just looking forward to a nice break.”
Whether the great “Harry-Kane” would reach Germany or not, it will be delivered in the transfer forecast for the coming days. Till then, we should brace ourselves for some drizzling transfer rumors.
