German giants Bayern Munich have left London without agreeing on a fee for striker Harry Kane with Spurs not softening their stands on wanting £100million for their striker and captain.

Kane is in the final 12 months of his contract and has no intentions of extending it at this stage, on the flip side he will not force a move away this summer in case no club is able to go all out for him.

Bayern are expected to finalise the sale of Sadio Mane with Al Nassr for a fee in the region of £32million which will loosen up the wage bill and create space for the arrival of Harry Kane.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is more open to selling Kane to Bayern Munich than he was when Manchester City attempted to buy him two seasons ago for a couple of reasons, first he has just 12 months left on his deal which makes the risk of losing him for free more damaging.

Selling to a club abroad also does his ego a lot of good and allows Kane to move to a European giant whom Tottenham are not directly always in contact with.

Manchester United were interested and have remained alert even though they have since looked out for other options including the signing of Rasmus Hojlund for a reported £72million.

Buyback clause

During the discussions in London Tottenham are reported to have insisted that in the case of any deal, a buy-back clause would be inserted to allow Kane to return to his boyhood club and possibly still in good shape that he can still go after Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League record.

Kane is just 47 goals shy and with his close circle saying he is quite determined to equal and surpass it before he hangs up his boots. He is 30 now and it remains to be seen how long the Bayern contract will be and if he’d have enough time to return and still be chasing records- where he to leave the Premier League this season.

Captain Kane is still the ultimate professional

In the midst of all the uncertainty, Kane has always remained professional and his striker partner Son Hueng-min says the English man hasn't shown any signs of distraction so far.

He said: “Harry has never shown any distraction. He’s always one of the hardest-working guys, working hard as a striker, sprinting back when we lose the ball. He is a great example.

“I can’t say anything about the final decision because I don’t know anything. Probably Harry doesn’t know. We just have to wait. Playing with him is always fun, it’s a joy. Watching him training there is a lot of things to learn.”

Tottenham played just two pre-season games so far, but will take on Shakhtar Donetsk before finishing their pre-season against Spanish giants Barcelona.
