Harry Kane’s Tottenham future to become clearer as he returns for pre-season

  • Tottenham striker Harry Kane’s future will become clearer this week, with the Premier League club currently valuing their talisman at £120million.

The England captain returns to Spurs’ Enfield training HQ on Wednesday to begin pre-season under new head coach Ange Postecoglou.

Kane will hold talks with Postecoglou upon his return with the future certain to be a topic of discussion.

Bayern have placed Kane at the top of their summer recruitment plans and have made two approaches for the prolific striker, the latest worth a minimum £68.5million.

But the Bundesliga club’s current valuation of Kane falls way below what Spurs chairman Daniel Levy currently wants for his talismanic striker.

Sources are indicating that Levy is pricing Kane at £120million – almost double that of the German giants’ latest approach.

With Kane able to leave for nothing next summer, there is hope at Bayern that they can secure the striker for a deal below Levy’s asking price.

But given the current financial level of Bayern’s efforts to sign Kane, the likelihood of the German side even getting close to £100million – a fee that could bring Levy to the negotiating table – appears small.

Bayern now have a decision to make over how they continue their pursuit of the striker with executives assessing whether to play the long game.

Bayern technical director Marco Neppe, who established contact with Kane’s family and entourage, has belief that there is a commitment on the Tottenham striker’s part to join Bayern.

Mail Sport revealed last month that Kane is open to a move to Germany this summer.

If the 29-year-old remains serious in that commitment, then Bayern will consider leaving the bidding this summer to return in January, when Kane is in the last few months of his contract.

Bayern have a line in terms of value that they do not wish to cross and that is not far off their current bid.

They believe that Manchester United are not actively looking at Kane as it stands because they do not have the funds and Tottenham would prefer Kane to go abroad rather than lose him to a Premier League rival.

So Bayern recognise they are Tottenham’s best option. If Levy doesn’t sell now, they are prepared to wait and get a cheaper deal.

A new contract at Tottenham, with a considerable hike on his £250,000 a week wages is there for Kane but this decision is not about the money.

Bayern are prepared to give him an incentive next year too if he remains committed to them. They view the most important part of the season as March when the Champions League reaches the crucial stages, so returning with an offer in January is under consideration.

Meanwhile, Manor Solomon is undergoing his medical at Tottenham on Monday ahead of the winger’s switch from Shakhtar Donetsk. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg remains an option for Atletico Madrid, who are also in the market for Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella and free agent Wilfried Zaha, but the Spanish side have minimal cash to bid with as they await Alvaro Morata’s sale to AC Milan.
