According to the extremely reliable David Ornstein, Tottenham Hotspur have rejected Bayern Munich’s latest bid of €100m plus add-ons for Harry Kane. Per German sources this was supposed to be the final offer made by the club, so reading between the lines you get the impression that the deal could be nearing collapse.
With less than a week left until both Spurs and Bayern resume their respective seasons, this setback makes securing Kane much more difficult unless Bayern Munich return with a much improved bid in the coming days.
Bayern Munich have seen latest offer for Harry Kane rejected by Tottenham. After proposals in June + July turned down #FCBayern were £25m short of #THFC valuation. Talks last week led to improved bid but that has now been knocked back too @TheAthleticFC https://t.co/R7zVBWjGez— David Ornstein (@David_Ornstein) August 7, 2023
At this point you have to ask, is it worth it?
Bayern Munich went as high as it dared, now that the bid has been knocked back down, it seems clear that Daniel Levy and Spurs have no intention of budging from their original asking price. At that level, it makes more sense to go for a young player like Osimhen than someone like Kane who’s nearing thirty.
Feels like Bayern should cut their losses and pull out of this one, it simply looks like it wasn’t meant to be.
Bayern Munich have not yet given up on the Kane pursuit, according to the German media. However the transfer might not go through this window. Could a January transfer be on the cards?
Bayern have yet to make a final decision on how to proceed. Clubs are still in contact. One of several alternative plans is to make a new attempt for Kane in January - and until then, rely more on Mathys Tel [@kerry_hau]— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) August 7, 2023
According to Plettenberg, Bayern will continue to fight to sign Kane. The question is, how much more money will it take? And how much longer?
Yes, there is still no agreement between FC Bayern and Tottenham. But I have been told that the negotiations are still ongoing. Bayern is still fighting for #Kane!— Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal) August 7, 2023

What does Plettenberg mean by this? Do we know? Does he know? Does anyone know?
It is said that Bayern was not personally informed from #Levy - about a reported rejection. For Bayern there’s still no agreement yet and ongoing negotiations. Clear signal that there was never a deadline. #Kane— Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal) August 7, 2023

According to the English media, Kane is adamant that he will not leave after the season starts, which puts a deadline on proceedings. This will all end this week, more or less.
