Manchester United’s hopes of signing Tottenham striker Harry Kane continue to diminish on daily basis, with a report in Germany indicating that Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich are ready to offer the England captain a bumper contract €100m of to lure him to Alianz Arena.
Kane only has one year left on his Spurs deal, and having failed to win a major trophy in his career, it is believed that he is finally willing to depart the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to try his luck elsewhere.
According to Sport Bild, Bayern, who will rival Man Utd in the Champions League this season, are even offering to break the bank with regards the England captain’s salary.
It is indicated that Kane will be offered €20m per year on a four- or five-year contract, making him one of the best-paid players in the world.
What remains to be seen is if Bayern are willing to pay a club-record fee of something in the region of €100m to prise the striker away from Spurs. It would be an uncharacteristic move for the Bundesliga club to spend so big, but they are still in need of a natural centre-forward after seeing Robert Lewandowski leave for Barcelona little over a year ago.
Bayern may also feel that the longer the situation draws out this summer, the better the prospects of landing Kane at a cheaper price are given his contract situation.
