Tottenham Hotspur’s 30-year-old Harry Kane is one of the hottest targets in the summer transfer window. Many clubs, including the likes of Spurs’ Premier League rival Manchester United, have officially submitted bids for the player. However, it seems like the London-based club is firm on their price for the England National Team captain, and unwilling to let the player go.
Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are also supposedly in the market for a striker. Following the departure of Robert Lewandowski, the Bavarians brought in Sadio Mane as a replacement; however, Mane didn’t seem to fill in the void the Polish striker left behind.
It seems like Bayern have identified Harry Kane as the one, and have launched a second bid for him after having the first one rejected.
Bayern Munich officially made a second, higher offer for Kane
Die Roten made an initial offer worth €70 million plus add-ons to Spurs in order to acquire Harry Kane. Tottenham officially rejected the bid last week, and now Bayern has sent an improved bid in order to bring in the English striker to the Allianz Arena.
According to reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the new bid is worth €80 million plus add-ons.

Now that Kane’s contract with Spurs is in its final year, club chairman Daniel Levy must decide whether to accept an offer this summer or wait until next year when Kane can leave for free. Due to the player’s age and contract situation, Bayern is unlikely to increase their offer beyond €80 million.
Tottenham to likely reject second offer due to not matching €117m Harry Kane pricing
However, it is unlikely that the Spurs will let Harry Kane go for the offered price. The club looks keen on keeping the striker and negotiating a new deal with him.
Even if they have to let him go, Tottenham is probably unwilling to do so for anything less than £100 million (€117 million). It is worth noting that Manchester United seem to have withdrawn from the pursuit of Kane after having their €80 million bid rejected.
Tottenham are not intentioned to accept €80m fixed fee for Harry Kane. Sources close to Spurs guarantee that this amount won't be enough for Bayern to make deal happen. ⚪️⚠️ #THFC
