Tottenham’s stance on Harry Kane departure following second Bayern bid

The Lilywhites have laid out their position on the striker

Tottenham are still reluctant to part ways with Harry Kane despite a second offer from German giants Bayern Munich, it has been reported.

Into the final year of his contract with Tottenham, Kane has been the subject of interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid already this summer, 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 now, and Thomas Tuchel’s side have already seen one offer rejected by the Lilywhites, believed to have consisted of 70m euros plus add-ons.

They have returned with a second, this time consisting of 80m euros, but that too is expected to be rejected with Tottenham warning that they will not consider offers of less than 100m euros for their star man.

Kane, meanwhile, has been offered a new contract in north London but ‘wants to see how the market plays out’, with the possibility of signing an extension thought to be ‘a distant third in his list of options behind leaving now or as a free agent in next summer’ according to the Guardian.

Bayern have made him their top transfer target this summer as they look to add a new striker to their ranks, and are expected to continue to push for a deal, though it is unclear whether they will meet the 100m euro asking price that Daniel Levy has slapped on his striker’s head.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are continuing their own summer business, with Manor Solomon expected to arrive on a free transfer in the coming days and negotiations ongoing for both Micky Van de Ven and Edmond Tapsoba.
