According to Bild, Bayern thinks that the price of 100 million euros is too high for a player with only one year of contract left like Harry Kane. The Bundesliga champions just want to spend 80 million euros, along with a few bonuses, depending on the performance of the English striker.
On the Spurs side, the North London club still showed a tough attitude when only letting the captain striker leave for 100 million euros. In the latest statement, the new captain Postecoglou said: “At this moment, no important decision has been made. I will meet with Kane soon to clarify his intentions.”
Bayern sent a second offer worth 80 million euros, without additional fees to ask for Kane. Earlier, Spurs rejected an offer of 70 million euros from their Bundesliga partner.
With a total contract value exceeding 80 million euros, Kane could become the most expensive rookie in Bayern history, breaking the record held by Lucas Hernandez, when he arrived at the Allianz Arena for 80 million euros in 2019.
Coach Thomas Tuchel highly appreciates Kane’s talent. The two faced each other when the German coach worked at Chelsea. However, Bayern’s offer is still far short of the £100m (115m euros) demanded by Tottenham.
Bayern try to recruit high-class money this summer. The Sadio Mane contract in the summer of 2022 did not meet expectations. “Gray Lobster” has not found a striker who can fill the void left by Robert Lewandowski.
