FC Bayern legend explains how the club were bullied by Tottenham in the Harry Kane deal

Lothar Matthäus claims Spurs blackmailed Bayern in the Kane deal...

Lothar Matthäus believes that Tottenham blackmailed FC Bayern in the deal for Harry Kane.

The former German midfielder suggests that they were forced into paying over the odds for the striker.

Bayern ended up paying over €100 million to sign Kane with Spurs squeezing as much out of the deal as possible.

Matthaus: “Maybe Bayern been a little blackmailed by Tottenham”

Matthäus told Sky90: “Those in charge at Bayern were and are 100 per cent convinced of Harry Kane. And that’s why they stretched themselves, that’s why they pushed their limits.

“And maybe Bayern has also - in quotation marks - been a little blackmailed by Tottenham - another million more and a little bit more.

“They wanted this player. And I say: 100 million for a 30-year-old.

“Lewandowski was three years older when he left and went to Barcelona for around €50 million - I now assume that it will pay off.”
