Update — July 9th, 4:30PM EDT: Expert expects proposal to be shot down
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano does not think that Bayern Munich’s latest bid for Tottenham Hotspur will be successful:
Bayern have submitted their second bid for Harry Kane — confirmed.— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 9, 2023
Proposal worth €80m plus add-ons, as @Plettigoal reported.
Tottenham already rejected €70m plus add-ons last week — and initial feeling after second bid is similar from Spurs, waiting on official answer. pic.twitter.com/GRJRXF2N3G
Where the Bavarians go from here will be interesting. Will Bayern Munich get to the magic €80 million that has been rumored?
There is more massive news in the top story currently running for the 2023 summer transfer window.
The first offer of €70 million with bonuses was rejected a week ago, and now Bayern have come back with an offer of €80 million with bonuses. If any of the add-ons were to be triggered, it would immediately make Harry Kane the most expensive transfer in Bayern Munich’s history, surpassing the €80 million the Bavarians forked out for Lucas Hernández in the summer of 2019.
