One of the most important potential soccer transfers of the summer involves a German super-team and a 30-year-old English striker, according to Marca. Tottenham’s Harry Kane has been rumored to make a dramatic move to Bayern Munich for over a month. Despite the heavy link, a deal has not been struck as we near the start of the European season. Kane is reportedly open to the move, but Tottenham are unsurprisingly reluctant to move on from the top goalscorer in the club’s history. New reports on Friday state that Bayern has sent one final bid to Tottenham in order to persuade the English club to sell their star. The German club’s bid for Kane is now over 110 million dollars. It would be a record transfer fee for Bayern Munich. In order to pressure Tottenham, Bayern have threatened to move on to other targets if the bid is unsuccessful, and they’ve even given a deadline of Friday by midnight for Tottenham to decide. Tottenham very recently signed tall Argentinian striker Alejo Veliz from Rosario Central for around 16.5 million dollars. That move could forebode a subsequent Kane departure, especially because Kane is in the last season of his contract. This isn’t the first time Spurs are in this position. In 2013, when Real Madrid came calling, the club sold Gareth Bale for what was then a world-record fee. But Tottenham squandered the assets they were given in the move. With the money from the Bale swap, Tottenham signed Paulinho, Christian Eriksen, Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela. Eriksen and Lamela performed admirably during their time with Tottenham. Chadli was fine, but just fine. Paulinho scored 10 goals in 67 games before moving to China. Capoue only appeared in 24 Premier League games before leaving. Chiriches made 43 appearances over two seasons before departing. But the biggest flop of all was Soldado, who only scored seven goals in 52 Premier League appearances despite scoring 88 in LaLiga in the prior six seasons. If Tottenham decide to sell Kane, they’ll be looking to make a more worthwhile investment than in past situations.
