Harry Kane left Tottenham to join Bayern Munich this summer but a possible return could be on the cards in the future

Tottenham fans were left heartbroken this summer when all-time leading goalscorer Harry Kane left the club to complete a blockbuster £100m move to German giants Bayern Munich.

Kane is regarded as one of the finest players in the club’s history and he scored a staggering 280 goals in all competitions for the club, surpassing former club-great Jimmy Greaves.

The England star scored a minimum of 17 goals in all of his final nine seasons in North London and enjoyed one of his most prolific campaigns to date last season with 30 Premier League goals.

Despite his longevity and success, Kane left Tottenham without ever picking up any silverware and he remains the second highest goalscorer in Premier League history behind Alan Shearer.

But the Tottenham Hotspur love affair may not be entirely over and owner Daniel Levy has confirmed that the club have a buy-back clause to re-sign Harry Kane in a future transfer window, according to Sky Sports.

Levy, who came under fire from Tottenham fans for letting Kane go, was asked at a fans forum on Tuesday night if the club had a buy-back option on Harry Kane.

Levy replied: “Of course.”

The Tottenham chairman did not go into any further detail on the manner and the manner and figures relating to that buy-back option have not yet been revealed.

Kane has enjoyed an excellent start to life in Germany since joining the Bundesliga champions and he has scored four goals in his opening four league matches.

The striker will compete for Champions League glory this year and he will make his European debut for the club against Manchester United at the Allianz Arena.

Spurs have also coped well with Kane’s departure in the early stages of the season and they are unbeaten in the Premier League under new boss Ange Postecogolou who has recorded four wins and a draw from his opening five games in charge.

High-flying Tottenham will travel to North London rivals Arsenal in their next Premier League game and they will be cheered on by their former striker.

Kane said: “Fantastic start - I am always keeping an eye on them and think I will keep an eye on Tottenham for the rest of my life.

“I am really happy to see the team playing the way they are and, of course, to see their fans happy as well is a great thing.

“I am sure they will be excited to keep that up. They have a massive game coming up (against Arsenal) so for sure I will see how they get on over the course of the season.”
