Bayern Munich set deadline for Tottenham to accept Harry Kane bid

Harry Kane’s heavily anticipated move from Tottenham Hotspur to Bayern Munich has reached a critical point, with time becoming a decisive factor.

According to The Telegraph, the perennial Bundesliga champions have set a deadline of midnight on Friday for Spurs to accept their latest offer for the England captain.

Despite failing to strike an agreement over the 30-year-old’s future at the start of the week, the Bavarians will have a last-ditch attempt to fulfil Thomas Tuchel’s wish of landing the Tottenham superstar.

Bayern’s last bid for Kane fell £25 million adrift of Spurs’ valuation, curtailing the optimism in Tuchel’s camp, as Daniel Levy remains hopeful of holding on to his headline performer.

Negotiations have taken longer than expected, and with the 2023/24 season around the corner, all parties are desperate for a conclusion.

The German giants will have to shatter the club-record transfer fee of £68m they poured into Atletico Madrid’s bank account to sign Lucas Hernandez four years ago.

They will likely have to reach a mouth-watering £86.1m threshold, including add-ons, to get Tottenham’s go-ahead – a sum they are reluctant to put forward.

As per Florian Plettenberg, the Germans have submitted an improved €100m bid, including bonuses.

Kane’s deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium runs out in less than a year, leading Bayern to believe they can still get the deal over the line on more favourable terms.

However, Levy has a soft spot for the striker – as witnessed by his relentless efforts to fend off genuine interests from Manchester City and Manchester United in the past.

While Kane is keen on joining forces with Tuchel’s star-studded squad, the Tottenham chairman has not always worked in his best interest, causing a plausible concern with the Bayern ranks.

Tuchel is ready to accept defeat and move on to other targets if he receives a negative response from the Spurs chairman, which would keep the English striker in London next season.

It would give Kane time to re-evaluate his options throughout the upcoming campaign and put more pressure on Alan Shearer’s Premier League goalscoring record in the Premier League.
