Tottenham set Harry Kane valuation as Bayern Munich ready second bid

Spurs aren’t willing to let their star leave on the cheap

Tottenham have warned Bayern Munich that it will cost them £100m to sign Harry Kane this summer as they weigh up whether to cash in on their talisman ahead of the new season.

The German giants have already seen one offer rejected by the Lilywhites, believed to have consisted of 70m euros plus add-ons. However, they have made Kane their no.1 striker target this summer and are expected to continue their interest in the 29-year-old, who scored 30 times in the Premier League last season.

Into the final year of his contract with Tottenham, Kane has been the subject of interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid, but Spurs have made it clear that they will not be selling to a fellow Premier League side, while Real Madrid thought that the valuation of the Englishman was too high.

It is Bayern that have taken up the mantle in Kane’s transfer saga, however, and according to the London Evening Standard they are ‘ready to increase their offer’ for the Englishman, with Thomas Tuchel a huge admirer of England’s captain.

However, reports in Germany claim that they will go no higher than 100m euros (£86m), which will fall well short of Tottenham’s £100m demands and could ultimately prove a gap too big to bridge in negotiations.

Kane himself is keen on the move despite having previously thought to favour staying in England in order to chase down Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goalscoring record (which he is less than 50 behind).

Meanwhile, rumours of a bid from Chelsea are wide of the mark, despite the possibility of Mauricio Pochettino linking back up with his talismanic forward.

As per the Standard, ‘there is no suggestion that an offer from Chelsea is imminent’, while Tottenham do not want to sell to a Premier League club much less a direct rival.
