Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy ignored a deadline imposed by Bayern Munich to accept their final offer for Harry Kane, The Telegraph’s Jason Burt reports.
Bayern had given Spurs until the end of the day Friday to decide whether to take or leave the more than €100 million on the table, according to transfer insider Fabrizio Romano and Sky Sports Germany’s Florian Plettenberg.
It’s unclear if Bayern will follow through with their threat to withdraw from the negotiations altogether.
The German club previously failed with reported bids of €70 million and €80 million.
Levy had apparently set Kane’s price at £100 million (€115 million) and had expressed hope the 30-year-old would sign a new deal.
However, Kane reportedly informed the club he won’t extend his contract, which expires at the end of the upcoming season.
If Tottenham decide against selling him in the summer or January transfer windows, he’ll have the right to leave the club on a free transfer.
Negotiating his exit to Bayern would at least prevent Spurs from losing him to a Premier League rival. Kane reportedly came close to joining Manchester City in 2021 after holding himself out of preseason training.
Kane hasn’t held out this time around. He started in each of Tottenham’s preseason friendlies during the club’s tour of Australia and Asia.
Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with England’s all-time leading scorer, but the player reportedly prefers to join the German champions.
Kane could earn up to £11 million annually at Bayern in base salary and bonuses, according to Sky Sports News.
Kane has scored 213 goals in 320 Premier League matches – 47 shy of tying Alan Shearer as the Premier League’s all-time leading scorer.
