Several of Bayern Munich’s representatives have flown into London on Thursday to hold crunch talks as they look to wrap up a deal for Harry Kane this summer, it has emerged.
Harry Kane is Bayern’s no.1 target and who they have already seen two bids turned down for this summer as Spurs hold out for £100m.
Kane is thought to be keen on the move, and has already begun house-hunting in Munich ahead of a potential switch, but Spurs are unwilling to let him leave on the cheap despite having just one year left on his contract.
Bayern, however, are pushing.
To that end, the Telegraph report that ‘Bayern chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen and the technical director Marco Neppe’ have flown into north London in a bid to complete a deal, with Bayern willing to bid up to £86m for the England captain.
It is even reported that they could insert a buyback clause into the deal should it help proceedings, which could allow Kane to complete his dream of winning silverware before returning to fulfil his ambition of becoming the Premier League’s all time top goalscorer, where he sits 50 goals behind Alan Shearer.
Even should they fail, it is added that the German giants ‘confident they could land the player... in January when he can sign a pre-contract agreement with an overseas club ahead of a move next summer.’
Bayern are set to receive a funds boost through the potential sale of Sadio Mane, who is closing in on a move to Al Nassr in a 40m euro deal, and that move could allow the German side to offer a more enticing package for Kane.
All parties are keen to have a deal decided before the new season kicks off in a fortnight’s time, and ideally with Tottenham having enough time to have a replacement signed, meaning that a move could move quickly in the coming days.
