Harry Kane does not want to move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
The British ‘Telegraph’ reported on the 27th (below), “Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is close to agreeing a deal to sell Kane to PSG. But the situation has been complicated by the fact that Kane does not want to move to Ligue 1 this summer.”스포츠토토
PSG is undergoing a major rebuild this summer. Having decided to end the Christopher Galtier regime, PSG have decided to revamp their squad. The club decided to move away from a superstar-oriented recruitment policy and instead focus on bringing in the right players for the positions they need, while also bringing in young players who can help shape the future of the team.
Milan Skriniar, Manuel Ugarte, Lee Kang-In, Marco Asensio, and Luca Hernandez are some of the players that have been brought in as part of this policy. With the decision to sell Kylian Mbappe, PSG are preparing to add a striker and have targeted Kane.
French journalist Fabrice Hawkins of RMC Sport, who is well versed in PSG news, said on December 12, “PSG have no intention of stopping the transfer market and are looking to sign a number nine. “PSG will do everything possible to sign Tottenham striker Kane,” he reported.
“PSG have been concentrating their efforts on signing Kane for several days. PSG held talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in London last week. But PSG must convince Kane first. A meeting between the two sides is scheduled for this week. Kane is close to Bayern Munich, but no agreement has been reached yet.”
PSG’s willingness to sign Kane appears to have broken Tottenham’s stance of keeping him at all costs. Until now, Spurs have not budged when Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Real Madrid have made moves for Kane. Tottenham wanted at least £100 million (approximately $164.2 billion) for Kane. So far, no club has come forward to meet Spurs’ demands.
PSG were willing to match Spurs’ asking price, and Levy was determined to sell Kane eventually. However, it appears that Kane has rejected the move. “PSG are still willing to bid more for Kane than any other club, but a lot will have to change to convince him,” explained the Telegraph. The news that Kane would not be heading to PSG was also reported by British and German media outlets.
After all, Tottenham are reportedly set to meet with the Bayern hierarchy. “Munich are ready to resume their move for Kane with two of the club’s top executives flying to London for fresh talks with Levy,” the outlet said.
The Bavarians are currently in Japan on a pre-season tour, with CEO Jan Christian Dresden and technical director Marco Neppe remaining in Germany. This is because they need to meet with Levy to discuss the signing of Kane.
Munich have been negotiating for Kane for some time now. The deal has already been finalized. This is because Kane has shown his willingness to move to Munich. German Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg, who is well versed in Munich’s inner circle, has been consistently reporting that Kane has already made his intentions known.
“Kane has made it 100% clear to Munich that he only wants to play for them. He is not considering a move to another club abroad. A personal agreement has been reached between Kane and Munich. Kane is convinced that if he moves to Munich, he can win European titles with Thomas Tuchel.”
Munich have since made two offers to Tottenham, which have been rejected. With a third offer planned, Munich is looking to up the ante significantly to meet with Levy.
“Munich are thought to be willing to pay up to £86m to sign Kane this summer,” explained the Telegraph. That’s less than Tottenham’s £100 million asking price, but it’s a negotiable range.
Munich will also reportedly offer a buy-back clause as they understand Tottenham’s position on Kane. A buy-back clause allows a player’s former club to take him back for a certain amount of money. Kane wants to win trophies, so he’s willing to play out his final years in Munich and then return to Tottenham.
However, Munich are preparing for Tottenham to reject even a third offer. With no intention of re-signing with Spurs, Kane will be free to negotiate with clubs abroad from January 1, 2024. The club has a Plan B in place, which is to have a pre-agreement with Kane and take him with them when he becomes a free agent next summer.
