Tottenham Hotspur have inserted a buy-back clause in the sale of Harry Kane.
“Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has revealed that there is a buy-back clause that allows the club to bring back Kane, who left for Bayern Munich this summer,” Football London reported on July 20 (KST). Kane joined the Bavarians in a £100 million ($164.8 billion) transfer.”
The outlet added: “Levy made the revelation on a Tottenham fan forum. Kane is one goal shy of breaking Alan Shearer’s record for most Premier League (PL) goals (260). If Spurs capitalize on the opportunity, they could re-sign Kane and he could break the record. Of course, it was not disclosed at what point this would take effect.”
Kane eventually left Tottenham for a new challenge in Munich. Kane is already one of Tottenham’s all-time greats. He has surpassed Jimmy Greaves as Spurs’ all-time leading scorer. He also has the second-most goals (213) in the English Premier League (EPL) behind Alan Shearer. He is just 48 goals away from the record.
Last season, he also scored 30 goals in all competitions in the PL. He was second in league scoring behind Elling Holland (Manchester City, 36). With the exception of Son Heung-min, who bounced back in the second half of the season, most of the strikers have been plagued by injuries and poor form. Meanwhile, Kane has stayed healthy and led Tottenham’s attack.
However, Tottenham did not meet expectations. They were knocked out early in all cup competitions, including the English FA Cup and EFL Cup, as well as the UCL, which they hadn’t competed in in a long time. The league results were also disappointing. They finished eighth in the final standings and missed out on UCL and European competition altogether.
With the club still unable to break the cycle, Kane’s departure was rumored. Tottenham’s first priority was to keep Kane. In mid-July, the UK’s Daily Mail reported that “Tottenham are doing whatever it takes to get Kane to sign a new contract. They will offer him a weekly wage of £400,000 (about $667,000) and the chance to take up a coaching role at the club after his playing days are over.” 메이저놀이터
However, Kane did not respond to the report. Instead, he was consistently linked to Munich. From news of a personal agreement to reports that Kane’s wife had visited the city to look at a house in Munich. It all started in late June when German Bild reporter Christian Falk wrote, “Munich and Kane have reached an agreement in principle. Kane’s family was directly involved in the negotiations. All that remains is an agreement between Munich and Tottenham.”
It was also reported that Thomas Tuchel had even met with the player himself. Polk reported in early July that “Tuchel met with Kane in London to discuss the transfer. Kane told Tuchel that his goal was to win the UCL title with Munich.”
Munich made three formal offers to Tottenham. The first two came in early July. At the time, the Bavarians were looking for €70 million (
