Munich make ‘ultimatum’ offer of £144m for Kane → Tottenham chairman takes two weeks off to US…transfer meeting with owner possible?

Bayern Munich are still waiting for an answer from Tottenham Hotspur about the Harry Kane transfer. First, chairman Daniel Levy left for a vacation in the United States.

Germany’s Bild reported on Friday (May 5), 온라인바카라 “Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy brushed aside Munich’s ultimatum and left for the United States. He will be in Miami for the weekend and will spend two weeks on vacation with his family,” Bild reported.

“If Levy’s trip to the U.S. is about anything other than vacation, it’s to meet with owner Joe Louis to discuss a transfer. Lewis’s company is based in Orlando, 320 kilometers from Florida. Lewis has already told Kane that he will sell him if he does not re-sign.”

Florian Plettenberg, a reporter for Germany’s Sky Sports, wrote on social media the same day: “Munich have made an offer of more than 100 million euros ($144 million) with a bonus option. There has been no response from Tottenham Hotspur yet. There is no deadline. Munich will continue to wait for an answer until the end of the week.”

Kane’s future is unclear. Tottenham finished bottom of the table last season. Antonio Conte’s second season in charge raised expectations with a flurry of signings. But the reality was different. After opening the season with a seven-match unbeaten run, the Blues fell into a slump and continued to perform below expectations until the end of the season.

In the end, Spurs finished eighth in the league and, once again, were relegated. They’re looking to turn things around ahead of the new season. Conte’s departure was followed by the appointment of Enze Postecoglou, who proved his leadership skills with Celtic by winning the Domestic Treble. He has also brought in the likes of James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario, and Manor Solomon to bolster his squad.

But there’s a more pressing issue. Kane’s future. Kane is already one of Tottenham’s all-time greats. He has surpassed club legend Jimmy Greaves to become Spurs’ all-time leading scorer. He also has the second-most goals (213) in the English Premier League (EPL), behind only Alan Shearer.

Kane also scored 30 goals in all competitions in the EPL last season. That was second in the league behind only Elling Holland (Manchester City, 36). With the exception of Son Heung-min, who rebounded in the second half of the season, Kane has remained healthy and led Tottenham’s attack while most strikers have been plagued by injuries and poor form.

His inability to break the cycle of inactivity has led to transfer speculation. The same situation happened in the summer of 2021. Despite leading the league with 23 goals and 14 assists, Tottenham weren’t interested. Kane asked for a move and was strongly linked to Man City. However, Levy declared the approach off-limits.

Of course, Tottenham’s priority is still to keep Kane. In the middle of this month, the British ‘Daily Mail’ reported that “Tottenham are trying to get Kane to sign a new contract no matter what. They will offer him a weekly wage of £400,000 (about $667,000) and the chance to take up a coaching role at the club after his playing days are over.”

However, Kane has yet to respond to the offer. Instead, he seems to want a move on. He continues to be linked to Munich, and the rumor mill is churning. Christian Falk, a reporter for the German newspaper Bild, who is well versed in Munich news, reported on March 27 that “Munich and Kane have reached an agreement in principle. Kane’s family was directly involved in the negotiations. All that remains is an agreement between Munich and Tottenham.”

It was also reported that Thomas Tuchel had personally met with Kane and spoken to him. Polk reported earlier this month that “Tuchel met with Kane in London to discuss the transfer. Kane told Tuchel that his goal was to win the UCL title in Munich.”

The story doesn’t end there. Kane’s wife is reportedly looking for a home in Munich. “Kane’s wife has visited Munich,” Polk wrote on social media on Wednesday, “and she’s been looking at schools and houses in the city.

Sources in Munich are confident that Kane will join the team. “Munich have been struggling to sign Kane,” Polk said. They are still very positive about the deal and hope that the game against Leicester City will be his last for Tottenham. They hope to finalize the transfer before the match against Shakhtar.”

Munich are also trying. The Bavarians have made two official offers to Tottenham in the past. “Munich made a first offer of €70 million plus bonus options, which was rejected by Tottenham,” Plettenberg reported in early July.

“Now Munich has sent a second transfer offer. It is valued at €80 million with a bonus option.” But just a day after the news broke, Tottenham responded. It was a rejection. For more than two weeks, Munich didn’t send an official offer.

But now they’re in final negotiations. “Munich CEO Jan Christian Dresden will not accompany the club on its Asian tour,” Bavarian Football reported on Friday. Instead, he will meet with Tottenham chairman Levy this Friday. Munich hope to finalize the deal. Kane’s move to Munich is 90% complete.”

For now, Spurs appear to have changed their stance somewhat. Lewis has reportedly told Levy that if they can’t re-sign Kane this summer, they’d be better off selling him. That said, if Kane decides to leave, they’re willing to talk to teams interested in signing him, including Munich.

PSG and Manchester United are back in the running. However, neither club is planning to make an immediate offer. As reported by Sky Sports, PSG would only negotiate if Tottenham were to make a definite offer. As for United, they have already identified a replacement and are in talks.

“Kane is no longer a target for the Red Devils, who have been strongly linked with the player,” said a source from Football London on Friday. However, they have now taken a step back from the chase, with Bayern Munich and PSG the next two potential destinations.” Indeed, the Red Devils have now completed their frontline reinforcements with the signing of Hoyun.


PSG is in need of striker reinforcements. With Kylian Mbappe’s future undecided, PSG are currently without a professional striker. While Mbappe has been deployed up front at times, he has expressed a desire to play on the flanks. This has led to several players, including Kane, being linked with a move and now Gonzalo Higuain.

In particular, Sky Sports reported on the 28th that “PSG are looking to sign a striker this summer. However, in the case of Kane, they will only enter into negotiations if Tottenham give them a signal that a deal will be done. The club already knows that Kane is not interested in moving to France. They are not going to get involved in the race to sign him.”

On the same day, transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano wrote on social media, “The Munich board will meet with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to discuss the signing of Kane. The meeting is scheduled for Friday. Fifteen days ago, Munich’s offer of €80 million plus bonus options was rejected and they will try to improve on it.”

The talks have begun in earnest, with Bild reporting earlier in the day that “CEO Jan Christian Dresden and squad planner Marco Neppe were spotted boarding a private plane at a private airport west of the city of Munich. They will now fly to London to meet with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy.”

Germany’s Sport1 also reported, “Munich are hoping to finalize an agreement with Tottenham this week over the transfer of Kane. Munich coach Thomas Tuchel, Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou and Kane himself are hoping for a swift completion under tight security.”

“The reason for the delay in the talks, which were originally scheduled for last week, does not appear to be tactical. It is understood that chairman Daniel Levy had a backlog of work following his Asian tour. It was also because of the tumultuous situation with the Lewis owner being charged.” And the talks have been positive.

For now, Kane is part of Tottenham’s pre-season schedule. He recently toured Asia. He has already played against West Ham United and Ryan City (Singapore) as part of the team’s preparations for the season under Postecoglou. A move for Kane would be a headache for Postecoglou.

If Kane were to move to Munich, he would leave Son Heung-min and join forces with Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae joined Munich this summer. Kim played for Napoli last season and became one of the best center backs in the Italian Serie A. He won the best defensive player award. He won the best defender award, and Napoli won the league title for the first time in 33 years.

Munich were interested in the player and made a move for him. They paid Napoli a buyout of €50 million, and they pulled out all the stops to get him. Tuchel made several video calls to convince Kim, and even sent a medical team to South Korea to conduct a medical test in time for Kim to complete his basic military training.
