Bayern Munich's Second Attempt to Poach Tottenham's Star: Harry Kane

The coveted striker of Tottenham, Harry Kane, continues to be the primary target of German football giants, Bayern Munich. After having their initial bid turned down, Bayern have raised their stakes to clinch one of the finest forwards in the footballing world today.

The Battle Begins

Bayern Munich's pursuit of Harry Kane escalated just over ten days ago when they launched their first formal bid for the Tottenham superstar. The German powerhouse's initial offer of 70 million euros was met with a definitive rejection from Tottenham's owner, Daniel Levy.

Kane, undeniably the crown jewel in Levy's ensemble, has not only achieved the status of the club's highest-scoring player but also enjoys an esteemed position in the English national team. Undeterred by this initial setback, Bayern Munich has remained firm in their quest to secure Kane's talents.

As speculated, a second bid was swiftly prepared, and the latest proposition was formally presented to Tottenham today.

Upping the Ante

In an attempt to turn the tide, the renowned sports journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Bayern Munich has now increased their bid to 80 million euros, in addition to several performance-related bonuses for Harry Kane.

The comparatively "low" asking price for Kane may be influenced by the nearing expiration of his contract with Tottenham, which concludes next season. This circumstance could potentially see Kane leaving the club as a free agent, absent a contract extension or transfer deal.

However, the question that remains unanswered is whether Tottenham's owner, Daniel Levy, will consent to this renewed offer. On the other side of the equation, Kane and Bayern Munich are reported to have agreed on terms of cooperation, setting the stage for a possible switch should Tottenham decide to cash in.

Historical Interest

Bayern Munich's interest in Harry Kane dates back to the tenure of former Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidžić. Regrettably, Salihamidžić's ambition of bringing Kane on board was left unfulfilled, as he was dismissed from his role at Bayern Munich shortly after the culmination of the Bundesliga season.
