Bayern Munich has submitted their final bid for Harry Kane
Bayern Munich has submitted an updated bid for Harry Kane, which they consider their final offer, and they expect to hear from Tottenham on Friday if the deal will go ahead.
Kane has informed the German champions that he is ready to join, but a trade is contingent on Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s response.
He rejected Bayern’s initial offer of €70 million (£60 million) plus add-ons for Kane and stated that their subsequent offer of €80 million plus add-ons was similarly insufficient. Bayern delegates were in London this week for meetings and made a new proposition.
Bayern’s honorary president, Uli Hoeness, voiced confidence last month that the club would sign Kane, saying that “Tottenham will have to buckle” unless the England striker changed his mind about the transfer.
The English international has one year left on his contract and has been given a big new contract by Spurs, which greatly improves his basic £200,000-per-week conditions.
He sees Bayern as an appealing destination because of the club’s history of winning championships – they have won 11 consecutive Bundesliga crowns – and being competitive in the Champions League. The club’s previous record spend was €80 million in 2019, when it paid Atlético Madrid for Lucas Hernández.
Tottenham are continuing to strengthen their squad, and have reached a verbal deal with Wolfsburg to sign defender Micky van de Ven for a cost that may exceed €50 million with add-ons. The Dutch center-back is scheduled to travel for a physical before signing a contract extension until 2028.

They have also agreed to pay around €15 million plus add-ons for 19-year-old Argentine attacker Alejo Véliz from Rosario Central.
