Tottenham Hotspur have rejected a third bid from Bayern Munich for their star striker, Harry Kane. The German club offered £85 million plus additional payments, but Spurs have once again turned down the offer. This comes after rejecting two previous bids from Bayern earlier in the summer.
Despite Bayern’s efforts to expedite the transfer before the start of the season, Tottenham remains relaxed about Kane’s future, according to talkSPORT. The player himself is not actively trying to force a move away from his childhood club this summer.
However, Bayern Munich may choose to walk away from the deal if their third bid is not accepted. talkSPORT’s Andy Brassell commented on the situation, suggesting that Bayern would appear foolish if they fail to sign Kane this summer.
Kane, who recently turned 30, has only one year remaining on his current contract with Tottenham, where he has been since 2004. In a pre-season friendly against Shakhtar Donetsk, the striker scored four goals, delighting Spurs fans and giving them hope that he will stay for another year.
The transfer window is still open, but it seems likely that Kane will begin the new season with Tottenham. The team has a final friendly against Barcelona before their Premier League campaign opener against Brentford on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur have rejected a latest offer from Bayern Munich for star striker Harry Kane, according to reports.
The German champions reportedly tabled an offer which failed to meet Tottenham’s valuation of their star forward.
Tottenham are desperate to keep hold of Kane, who has been their talisman since his breakthrough season in 2014-15. He has scored more than 20 goals in each of the last four Premier League campaigns and is now the captain of the side.
Kane has long been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, but Tottenham are unwilling to sell their star forward – even for what would be a club-record fee.
In a statement, a Tottenham spokesman said: “Tottenham Hotspur can confirm that we have rejected an offer from Bayern Munich for Harry Kane. Our stance on the player is unchanged and he is not for sale.”
The news will come as a blow to Bayern, who are desperately seeking a replacement for last year’s departure of Robert Lewandowski. They had reportedly made Kane their number one target for the summer transfer window.
Kane meanwhile, will be relieved that his future lies at Tottenham. He is expected to make a full recovery from the ankle injury which ended his season prematurely and will be looking to help guide Spurs to success when the new campaign begins.
