The unshakeable tenacity of Daniel Levy, President of Tottenham Hotspur, was once again demonstrated in the conspiracy surrounding Harry Kane and his possible transfer to FC Bayern Munich. Although the player and the German club had agreed on an agreement for some time, the offers made by Bayern were successively rejected by the London side.
Amid an operation that has kept the football community in suspense, Levy was undeterred by Bayern’s attempts to take on the crisis star striker. The latest offer presented, a sum of €100m plus variables, was answered with a resounding ‘no’ by Tottenham.
Tottenham reject €100m offer for Kane
President Levy’s inflexible attitude has caused anger for both the player and Bayern. According to reports from the Daily Mail, this refusal would have led the Bavarian club to consider other alternatives to strengthen their attacking line. One of the names on the list would be Dusan Vlahovic, the Juventus forward who, unlike Kane, could be available for a transfer.
The outcome of this situation leaves the possibility that the transfer price for Vlahovic will be significantly lower compared to the value of Kane, although the latter has been the main target since the beginning of the transfer market.
Levy and Tottenham’s repeated refusals to transfer their captain and goalscorer have deterred several suitors in the past. Teams like Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern themselves were repelled by the English club’s high standards.
Even Real Madrid have been linked with Harry Kane at one point, but Tottenham’s financial demands have been an insurmountable obstacle to any attempt at negotiations.
As the transfer market evolves, the mystery surrounding Harry Kane’s future remains unsolved. Tottenham fans and football lovers in general are eagerly awaiting the next steps in this complicated and exciting transfer story.
