ottenham Hotspur has reportedly accepted an offer from Bayern Munich for star striker Harry Kane. The Athletic has revealed that the Premier League club has agreed to a bid of £86.4 million for the 30-year-old forward, which was officially submitted on Wednesday.
The decision now rests with Kane, who is said to have received a tempting five-year contract proposal from the Bundesliga giants. With the new season on the horizon, all parties involved—Tottenham, Bayern, and Kane—were eager for a swift resolution, and it seems their wishes are about to be granted.
Kane, who serves as the captain of the England national team, has experienced a mixed bag of emotions at his current club. While he is reportedly enjoying his time under the guidance of new manager Ange Postecoglou, the desire to lift trophies before his retirement has ultimately led him to the brink of departing his childhood club.
Bayern Munich has been actively pursuing Kane throughout the summer transfer window, with manager Thomas Tuchel advocating for the signing of the prolific forward. Kane, who boasts an impressive record of 280 goals in 435 appearances for Tottenham, notably sat out the pre-season match against Barcelona on Tuesday, a move seemingly aimed at expediting the resolution of his future.
The striker’s determination to achieve silverware appears to outweigh his pursuit of individual accolades, including surpassing Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goalscoring record. Despite being just 47 goals short of the milestone, Kane’s focus on securing trophies seems to have driven his decision-making.
Should the transfer go through, Bayern Munich would finally find a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who left the club to join Barcelona last summer. The German powerhouse faced a challenging season, ending with their lowest goal tally in four years. They narrowly clinched the Bundesliga title on the final day of the campaign, underscoring the need for offensive reinforcement.
As Kane enters the final year of his contract, Tottenham’s decision to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer seems prudent. The club’s efforts to persuade him to extend his stay have so far been unsuccessful, leading to this significant development in the transfer market.
