Bayern Munich and Tottenham £20m apart in valuation of Harry Kane

According to Sky Sports, Bayern Munich’s valuation for Harry Kane remains “significantly short” of Tottenham’s asking price- with the difference believed to be around £20m.

This news comes following a meeting, which was rescheduled last minute from Friday to Monday, where both club’s hierarchy discussed the potential transfer of Kane.

Furthermore, negotiations are still set to continue between the two sides, with the England captain understood to be undergoing formal talks with the German giants and being open to the move, should a deal be agreed.

The Bundesliga champions have already had a €80m offer rejected for the 29-year-old, with it always having been believed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would demand a higher fee if he were to consider letting his star striker depart this year, despite his current contract set to expire next summer.

Sky also report that the North London club will demand a buyback clause inserted in any possible deal, to ensure that they maintain an option of resigning their club-record goal scorer, providing the player wanted a return to the Premier League in the future.

The gap in a valuation between the two sides may open up an oppurtunity for Paris-Saint-Germain, who are also keen on the move and ready to make an offer should talks between Bayern and Spurs collapse. However, Kane is understood to not want be in favour of a move to the French capital, as per Matt Law of The Telegraph.

The interest in England’s all-time top scorer comes following his impressive season for The Lilywhites, where he made 49 appearances in all competitions, scoring 32 goals and providing five assists. Despite Kane’s efforts for his boyhood side however, they only managed an eight place finish in the table last year, their worst finish since the 2008/09 season- meaning they will be without any form of European football for the first time in over a decade.

As a result, whether it be with Kane or without him, Tottenham will be looking to improve their performances next season under new manager Ange Postecolgou. The Australian, and his new signings James Maddison, Manor Solomon, and Guglielmo Vicario, and will have their first competitive game for Spurs on Sunday August 13, when they will travel to the Gtech community stadium to face Thomas Frank’s Brentford.
