As per David Ornstein of The Athletic, Bayern Munich have had a bid accepted by Tottenham Hotspur for Harry Kane.
The German sides’ proposal is said to be worth over €100m, and was accepted by the Lilywhites on Wednesday. Whilst it is now understood to be Kane’s decision as to whether he makes the move or not.
The England captain wanted the saga to be resolved prior to Spurs’ opening Premier League fixture against Brentford this Sunday, and was said to be leaning towards staying at his boyhood side should the deal not be completed before this match.
Furthermore, the 30-year old has been understood to be enjoying life at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium under new head coach Ange Postecoglou, but it is not currently known where he stands following this accepted bid.
With his current contract set to expire in June 2024, Spurs are keen on signing their club-record goal scorer on a new contract, however, there has been no progress on new terms as of yet. Consequently, this has led to them considering sanctioning the strikers sale- as they are reluctant to not let him depart on a feee transfer next summer.
Bayern’s long-standing interest in Kane comes following his impressive performances throughout last season, where he scored 32 goals and provided five assists in 49 appearances in all competitions- however, this was only enough to secure The Lilywhites an eighth place finish in the Premier League table- their worst since the 2008/09 season.
Whether it be with Kane or without him, Postecoglou and his new side will have their first league game of the season Sunday August 13, as Spurs will travel to the Gtech community stadium to face Thomas Frank’s Brentford.
