According to The Guardian, Bayern Munich has made a second approach for Harry Kane at £70 million plus add-ons in the hope that it will persuade Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy to accept the deal.
Spurs had rejected a £60 million proposal from the German club because it fell far short of Tottenham’s £100 million value for the striker.
They did, however, continue to pursue the player directly behind the scenes and are said to have achieved an arrangement with the player himself.
Thomas Tuchel is thought to have had a significant part in convincing the player to join the Bundesliga.
This infuriated club chairman Daniel Levy, who is reportedly planning to make them pay even more than his initial demand of £100 million.
According to the report, Bayern Munich’s second bid is intended to entice Kane to pursue a transfer, potentially enabling a deal between the two teams.
They are now awaiting an official response from the Spurs about their second bid.
Meanwhile, Tottenham has offered Kane a new lucrative deal, but the England international has not indicated an instant readiness to sign it and is said to be open to all options.
If Spurs reject Bayern’s second bid, as is expected, the German club is set to counter with a third offer because they are still interested in signing him.
