바카라사이트Bayern Munich (Germany) has made the final offer. Harry Kane’s fate depends on Tottenham’s (England) decision.
“Munich has offered a club-record €100 million ($144 billion) to sign Tottenham striker Kane,” said 90MIN, a British soccer publication. “If Tottenham is not satisfied with the offer, Munich is unlikely to offer a higher amount,” the publication said, emphasizing that it is effectively the last offer.
Munich have already made two bids for Kane, both of which were rejected. The second bid was for €80 million. Recently, Munich CEO Jan Christian Dresden and president Marco Neppe traveled by private plane to London, England, to meet with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. The idea was to discuss the transfer of Kane. However, no agreement was reached during the meeting, only a mutual understanding of the transfer fee.
Despite the lack of tangible results, it was an important meeting for Munich. Tottenham’s asking price was confirmed. As 90MIN explains, “Munich left with positive expectations that a deal for Kane will be finalized this summer.” In fact, they immediately prepared a ‘third offer’. Local media in England had previously claimed that Tottenham wanted €100 million for Kane, a figure that Munich eventually matched.
This is the highest transfer fee in Munich’s history. Currently, the club’s highest transfer fee is €80 million, which is held by Luca Hernandez, who moved to PSG this summer. Dutch defender Matthijs Derrycht became the second highest transfer fee in the club’s history last year for €67 million ($96 billion). The €50 million ($71 billion) transfer fee for “monster” Kim Min-jae, who moved to Munich this summer, is third.
In the meantime, Tottenham have managed to keep hold of Kane at all costs. Real Madrid (Spain), Paris Saint-Germain (France), and others have tried to sign Kane, but have been blocked by Tottenham’s ‘iron wall’.
This time, however, the situation is much different. Tottenham’s contract with Kane expires next summer. If Tottenham rejected Munich’s offer unconditionally, they could lose Kane without receiving any transfer fee. To make matters worse, there are reports that Kane wants to move on.

With the start of the new season just around the corner, the Bavarians are hoping for a quick answer. The Bavarians host Leipzig in the DFL Super Cup on Sept. 13. On the 19th, they host Werder Bremen in their season opener. For Tottenham, it’s even more impatient.
In fact, Spurs have been trying to re-sign Kane for some time now. They offered him £400,000 a week, the highest in the Premier League and double his current wages.
However, Kane refused to accept. Kane appears to have lost patience with Tottenham’s continued underachievement. Tottenham’s last title was the 2008 League Cup. Kane has been playing for the first team since 2010. He hasn’t won a single trophy during his time at Spurs. Even last season, Spurs finished eighth in the league. Kane is also approaching his 30s, so there’s no time to waste.

Tottenham have come to terms with Kane’s departure and have begun their search for a replacement. They have been linked with Brennan Johnson of Nottingham Forest (England) and Mehdi Taremi, an Iranian striker who plays for FC Porto (Portugal). Of course, there will be a lot of pressure on the shoulders of Son, Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusebski, who remain on the team.
Johnson, who plays for the Welsh national team, is a young prospect at 22. However, he scored eight goals and provided three assists in 38 league appearances last season. Last season, Nottingham finished 16th in the league and barely stayed in the top flight thanks to Johnson’s performance. Porto striker Taremi scored seven goals and provided seven assists in 22 league appearances last season. At 31 years old, he’s not young, but he has a good 6-foot-5 frame and excellent goal-scoring ability. He can play up front as well as on the left flank.
