Harry Kane expects to stay at Tottenham if he is not sold before Premier League opening fixture

As per Sky Sports, Harry Kane expects to stay at Tottenham for the following season if he is not sold to Bayern Munich before his side’s opening fixture against Brentford on August 13.

Sky Sports reporting Kaveh Solhekol claimed that the England captain feels “it would be unfair” on new head coach Ange Postecoglou to leave once the season has begun, and that the fixture acts as a de facto deadline for both the player and the club to sort out the striker’s future.

This follows reports that Bayern Munich’s valuation of Kane is “significantly short” of Spurs asking price, with a gap of around £20m.

Despite this gap, negotiations are still said to be continuing between the two sides, with the 29-year-old understood to have undergone formal talks with the German giants and being open to the move, should a deal be agreed.

The North London side’s chairman Daniel Levy has already rejected an €80m bid from the Bundesliga champions, with it always being believed that he would demand a higher fee, of around £100m, if he were to consider letting his club-record goal scorer depart this year, despite his current contract being set to expire next summer.

Furthermore, England’s all-time top scorer has also attracted interest from Paris-Saint-Germain. The Ligue 1 winners would be keen on the move should talks between Bayern and Spurs collapse, however the player himself is understood to not be in favour of a move to the French capital, as per Matt Law of The Telegraph.

If he were to stay next season, Kane and his boyhood side will be will be without any form of European football for the first time in over a decade, as they come off the back of their eight place finish in the Premier League table last year- their worst since the 2008/09 season. This was despite the Englishman’s impressive performances throughout the season, where he scored 32 goals and provided five assists in 49 appearances in all competitions.

Although Kane is expecting to stay at the club next season, if he were to not be sold by August 13, Bayern’s pursuit of a new number nine is likely to continue right up until September 1- which is the official summer transfer window deadline day.
