Tottenham: £200k-a-week star's exit 'not ruled out' at Hotspur Way

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte reacts

Tottenham Hotspur cannot rule out losing Harry Kane to Bayern Munich next summer, despite the Bundesliga giants being unlikely to match Daniel Levy’s asking price, according to journalist Paul Brown.

Antonio Conte oversaw a busy few months of transfer business at Hotspur Way and will have been delighted to see his star man remain.

What interest is there in Kane?

The summer of 2021 saw the England captain push for a move to Manchester City as he failed to show up for pre-season training amid interest from Pep Guardiola and co.

City had made a £100 million bid for Kane at the end of June but saw it rejected, with chairman Levy and the board valuing their striker at more than £120 million.

Tottenham ultimately clung onto their man and Erling Haaland eventually made the move to the Etihad this summer to fill their striking void.

But now another European giant has started circling for his signature.

Journalist Florian Plettenburg told Sky Sport Italia that he was ‘convinced’ Kane would be Bayern’s top target come the summer of 2023.

He added that a move may be dependent on how the likes of Kingsley Coman, Sadio Mane and Serge Gnabry perform at the Allianz Arena this term, but suggested the Bundesliga champions ‘have the money’ to sign the Tottenham ace.

What has Brown said on the situation?

Brown believes that Kane leaving for Bayern next year cannot be ruled out because of the recent reports coming from the club.

However, the journalist adds that it is unlikely the German giants will be able to match Levy’s asking price if they do come in for him.

Brown told GIVEMESPORT: “The stumbling block here is that I cannot see Bayern Munich getting anywhere near Daniel Levy’s valuation for Harry Kane. So whether we end up in a situation where we have a bit of a standoff, like we did with Kane and Man City, or not, it’s too early to say. I think because of the noises coming out of Bayern, you can’t rule out this one coming up in the summer.”

Could Kane leave next summer?

It is certainly a possibility, particularly if Conte departs when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The £200,000 per-week striker suggested in his infamous interview with Gary Neville in 2021 that he does not want to end his career having not won trophies and not played in the biggest matches.

If, two years later, he is still yet to achieve those goals, there is every chance he may consider departing once again.

Next summer he will also have just one year remaining on his deal, putting Tottenham in a tricky position when it comes to fielding offers, handing Kane all the power.
