Update — August 4th, 6:50PM EDT: Deadline doubt?

Sky Sport journalist reported that there was no deadline or ultimatum given by Bayern Munich to Tottenham Hotspur on Harry Kane.

The proposal is in the hands of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, but he has balked at offering a response:

Update — August 4th, 6:30PM EDT: Deadline doubt?

According to Sport Bild reporter Tobi Altschäffl, there is STILL no agreement between Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur on star striker Harry Kane. The (potentially not true) deadline of midnight has passed without a deal:

Update — August 4th, 5:00PM EDT: Deadline doubt?

According to Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich’s deadline to Tottenham Hotspur could be true...or it might be a myth. The German report cannot confirm the existence of any specific timetable set forth by the Bavarians:

Update — August 4th, 11:15AM EDT: Bayern Munich’s latest offer for Harry Kane includes €100m guaranteed with €20m in add-ons

According to ESPN, Bayern Munich have bid €100m fixed plus €20m in add-ons. This is the first time the add-on details have been revealed — you have to assume they include some major targets, like winning the Champions League.

Update — August 4th, 9:03AM EDT: Bayern submits improved offer

According to Sky Sport journalist Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich has submitted a new proposal to Tottenham Hotspur for star striker Harry Kane.

Per Plettenberg, the new bid exceeds €100 million and a decision is expected shortly:

According to a report from The Telegraph, Bayern Munich has set a deadline with Tottenham Hotspur of midnight...TODAY to get a deal done.

That seems...unlikely, but let’s see what The Telegraph has to say:

Bayern Munich are understood to have set a deadline of midnight on Friday for Tottenham Hotspur to accept their latest offer for Harry Kane. All parties – including the player – want Kane’s future resolved as soon as possible and certainly before Spurs’ first Premier League game of the season next Sunday away to Brentford.

If a deal is not agreed to sell Kane to Bayern, the striker is expected to see out the final year of his contract at Spurs and leave for free next summer. If Bayern do not sign Kane this month it would be possible for them to agree a pre-contract with him in the January window ahead of a free transfer in the summer.

However, Kane may want to wait and evaluate his options if he becomes a free agent. It would, for a start, make it easier for him to stay in the Premier League. Manchester United, for example, are huge admirers of Kane but decided against bidding during this window as they did not receive encouragement that a deal could be agreed.

Given that this is the first report of a deadline, it is unlikely that the Bavarians have drawn a line in the sand. However, if Bayern Munich has really taken a hardline stance, there could be some contingency plans in the hopper that are ready to go.
