Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has met Bayern Munich’s chief executive Jan-Christian Dreesen over the sale of Tottenham captain Harry Kane. The conversation is still open but there has been no real progress. Daniel Levy and Bayern had already interacted with each other and discussed Harry Kane. Tottenham will continue to attempt to persuade Kane to sign a lucrative contract extension but worry that if he expires his current term, he would join a Premier League competitor. At this point, Kane has not ruled out any options, and he will go to Australia with the Tottenham team on Friday for their preseason trip. Postecoglou has made it obvious that he wants Kane to be a part of the team he builds to play exciting, attacking football.
If he does indeed begin the season in England, the club will have the opportunity to demonstrate to him and other senior players that a more upbeat attitude is possible than in recent years. Kane is said to desire to join Bayern, and if he leaves in the upcoming weeks, that seems to be where he will go. Tottenham has made it clear that they do not want to trade their all-time leading scorer, and they will not even consider accepting the £70 million Bayern is prepared to offer.
The 213 goals the England captain has scored for Spurs place him second all-time in Premier League scoring behind Alan Shearer. To break the record, he needs 48 more goals. While Spurs only managed to finish seventh last season, Kane scored an incredible 30 league goals. With Erik ten Hag turning his attention to Rasmus Hojlund of Denmark, it is certain that Tottenham would not sell to an English team during this transfer window, shutting out a move to Manchester United.
“No, I haven’t received any promises regarding Kane’s future, and I wouldn’t anticipate receiving any since you never deal in definites or certainties with these kinds of situations,” Tottenham’s head coach said about Harry Kane. “I’m making an effort to focus on what I do know right now, and that knowledge is that Harry is a member of this group. He is eager to return to training so he can re-engage with the guys and begin our collaborative efforts.”
