Tottenham, Bayern agree €100m+ deal for Kane – sources

According to ESPN sources, Tottenham have accepted a €100m ($110m) offer from Bayern Munich for striker Harry Kane.

The 30-year-old will now decide whether to leave Spurs or the final year of his north London contract expires.

Bayern had threatened to call off negotiations after giving Spurs boss Daniel Levy a midnight deadline last Friday to act on their latest offer.

Levy waited until Monday to reject that proposal, but Bayern came back with a final offer, believed to have been restructured with revised surcharges and a higher share of the fee guaranteed up front.

Spurs have now accepted that offer, not least because Kane has shown a reluctance to sign an extension to his current £200,000-a-week deal, which expires in 2024.

The England captain has 213 Premier League goals and is on track to surpass Alan Shearer’s record of 260 goals, but Kane is also motivated by a desire to win silver, having never won a trophy for his club or lifted his country up despite establishing himself as one of the world’s top strikers.

Sources have told ESPN that Kane has enjoyed the positive approach to football that new head coach Ange Postecoglou is trying to implement at Spurs and has been fully involved in pre-season, including scoring four goals in last weekend’s 5-1 win over Shakhtar Donetsk .

However, the lure of joining Bayern to further his career is evident considering they have won the Bundesliga title in 11 straight seasons and the last of their six Champions League triumphs came in 2020 – when they defeated the Spurs defeated 7-2 in the group stage.

Kane wanted his future settled by the start of the Premier League season – Spurs meet Brentford in the opening game on Sunday – and now has to decide whether his future lies in England or Germany.

According to reports from Germany, Kane’s wife Katie Goodland was spotted touring houses in Munich last month, fueling speculation about a possible move.

However, Spurs’ reluctance to sell cast doubt on the possibility of a deal before the breakthrough came on Wednesday.
