Harry Kane is reportedly wants to stay in England and could reject a huge transfer to Bayern Munich

Tottenham Hotspur have finally accepted a proposal from Bayern Munich for captain Harry Kane, according to sources. The Bundesliga club has been interested in the star striker for some time.

According to The Athletic, the Premier League club has accepted an offer of more than 100 million Euros, plus add-ons.

Kane has 280 goals in 435 matches since making his Tottenham debut. In the Premier League, he has 213 goals in 320 games and is just 48 goals away from passing Alan Shearer as the competition’s all-time leading scorer.

Tottenham has already turned down Bayern three times, but the two sides apparently reached a deal on Thursday. It now all hinges on Kane, who is believed to want to join Bayern. However, Sky Sports reports that he is ‘leaning towards staying in north London’.

The English striker faces a difficult dilemma because he has spent his whole career at Tottenham, with the exception of a few loan spells, and has only one year left on his contract.

The club does not want him to depart for free either. If they are successful in acquiring Kane, Bayern will set a new transfer record. Lucas Hernandez, a French defender, is their current record signing, having joined from Atletico Madrid for 80 million Euros in 2019.

Bayern has already sold Sadio Mane to Al Nassr and Hernandez to PSG, giving them the means to buy Kane. Since David Beckham’s departure to Real Madrid in 2006, no permanent England captain has played for a club outside of England, therefore the move might be historic. Kane was also connected to Manchester United, but the club chose Rasmus Hojlund instead.

Harry Kane’s Recent Transfer Updates

Earlier this summer, Kane was linked with Manchester United until Bayern made him their major focus. For several seasons, the striker’s future in London has been questionable, and a number of Bayern approaches were rebuffed earlier this summer.

Spurs recently turned down an offer on Monday, and the Bundesliga champions said at the time that an unsuccessful deal would compel them to look for other options.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has often turned down interest in Kane, most recently in 2021 when Premier League winners Manchester City attempted to sign the striker.

It was also unclear whether Levy would have been willing to sell Kane to another Premier League team, suggesting earlier this year he would not do business with either of the Manchester clubs.

But with Kane unwilling to sign a new deal with Spurs, it seems Levy has decided selling now is the best option for the club rather than losing him for free next year.

Kane, who came through Spurs’ academy, has played for the club during pre-season while negotiations with Bayern took place, with his last appearance coming against Shakhtar Dontesk on Sunday.

Following his arrival this summer, new Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou pledged to sell Kane his “vision” for the club, stating that he wanted the striker to stay in north London.

Kane has won the Premier League Golden Boot three times since his debut in 2012, in 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2020-21. Despite having 58 international goals, England’s all-time best scorer has never won a major prize with club or country.

Bayern, on the other hand, is a consistent silverware winner in Germany. Thomas Tuchel’s side won the Bundesliga for the 33rd time last season, their 11th in a row, and have also won the Champions League six times and the German Cup 20 times.
