Bayern Munich is growing increasingly optimistic about their chances of securing the signing of Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur. Uli Hoeness, the honorary president of Bayern Munich, has expressed his confidence in the potential transfer of the England captain to the German giants.
According to Hoeness, Kane has made it clear in their conversations that he has made up his mind to join Bayern Munich this summer. Hoeness believes that if Kane remains steadfast in his decision, the transfer will come to fruition, as Tottenham will have no choice but to negotiate.
Reports suggest that Bayern Munich has already reached a personal agreement with Kane, although their initial bid of €70 million ($76 million) was rejected by Spurs. It is rumored that Tottenham is holding out for a transfer fee of at least €100 million to part ways with their star striker. Kane is currently included in the London club's squad for their pre-season tour in the Asia-Pacific region.
The German champions are determined to secure the services of England's all-time leading scorer, especially since Kane's contract with Tottenham expires in 2024. While Kane's camp is believed to be in favor of the move, Bayern Munich must reach an agreement with Tottenham regarding the transfer fee to finalize the deal.
Hoeness highlighted Kane's desire to play in international competitions, noting that Tottenham is not qualified for Europe next season, unlike Bayern Munich. This presents Kane with an opportunity to join one of Europe's top clubs.
Negotiating with Tottenham's president, Daniel Levy, is expected to be challenging, as Hoeness acknowledged Levy's intelligence. However, Bayern Munich is determined to find common ground and reach an agreement for the transfer.
"We know Levy is a seasoned professional, but we are also experienced in these matters," added Hoeness, who is part of Bayern's committee overseeing this summer's recruitment, alongside Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Jan-Christian Dreesen, and coach Thomas Tuchel.
As the negotiations continue, Bayern Munich remains hopeful that they can successfully bring Harry Kane to their ranks for the upcoming season.
