The crucial week for Bayern Munich in terms of their summer transfer plans has started on a decent note. Bayern CEO Jan Christian Dressen and Technical Director Marco Neppe travelled to London to hold talks with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy for the signing of Harry Kane.
The German duo is back in Germany after holding positive talks with Levy, but there is a significant gap in the evaluation of Kane between both parties. According to Sky Sports in the UK, Bayern are £20 million short of what Spurs want to part ways with Kane. Spurs are also looking to insert a buyback clause in the deal. Meanwhile, The Athletic is reporting that Die Roten is £25 million short of Spurs’ evaluation of Kane.
Bayern is reportedly ready to pay €100 million (£85.6 million) for Kane, which they feel is a significant fee for a player that has entered the final year of the contract. It does look like Spurs wants just over £100 million for the English forward.
Meanwhile, SportBild’s Christian Falk is reporting that talks in London were positive for Bayern, but there is no agreement on the transfer. Sport1’s Kerry Hau is reporting that Bayern chiefs are positive about completing a deal for Kane after holding good talks with Levy.
The Bavarian club already had two bids rejected for Harry Kane. They will most likely make the third bid after talks with Levy, which could be the one that seals the deal for them. Spurs are also under pressure to sell since they risk losing Kane for nothing next summer. They have offered a lucrative deal to the English forward, but he is not in a rush to sign the deal.
Bayern seems to have an agreement with Kane over personal terms. Thomas Tuchel reportedly held productive talks with the English forward before Die Roten started submitting bids to Spurs. Kane has set his heart on a move to Bayern despite the reported interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
Earlier today, one report in Germany revealed that Bayern is looking to wrap up the deal for Kane this week. Considering the significant gap in evaluation, the deal to bring Kane to Munich may take more time. Die Roten would ideally like Kane in the squad for the start of the season later this month.

It remains to be seen if the name of Mathys Tel popped up with Dressen and Neppe met Levy. The French striker is reportedly a transfer target for Spurs. Tel has no plans to leave Bayern despite the arrival of a new striker. Meanwhile, Sadio Mane has travelled to Dubai to complete a move to Al Nassr.
