Bayern Munich have finally reached an agreement to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer, with the Englishman now set to decide whether he wishes to leave north London ahead of the opening weekend of the Premier League season.
The German giants had made Kane their no.1 striker target this summer, and have tabled three rejected bids for him already. However, their fourth offer appears to have done the trick, despite still being well below the £100m valuation that Spurs had set on their talismanic striker.
The Athletic claim that ‘a proposal from the Bundesliga side, believed to be worth more than €100million (£86.4m, $110m), was accepted by their Premier League counterparts on Wednesday’, leaving the decision now firmly up to Kane.
It is added that the 30-year-old ‘has been leaning towards staying’ due to ‘enjoying life under new Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou’, but he is out of contract in 12 months and could see this as an opportunity to allow his boyhood club to receive a fee for him while still chasing his ultimate dream of winning trophies.
Spurs face Brentford on the opening weekend of the season, and a deal will have to have been concluded by then, with the start of the season a deadline set by both Kane and Tottenham.
Should he depart, Spurs have been strongly linked with a move for Gent striker Gift Orban, who is expected to cost in the region of £30m. They are also on the hunt for another centre back.
Kane’s exit would also see his chase of the all-time Premier League goalscoring record put on pause, though he could return in the future in a bid to knock Alan Shearer from his perch.
