After Daniel Levy suggested Tottenham Hotspur have a buy-back clause included in the deal to sell Harry Kane, Bayern Munich director Christoph Freund has insisted the player is part of the long-term future at the German club.

The transfer story of the summer was undoubtedly the protracted negotiations between Tottenham and Bayern Munich for the signature of Harry Kane.

Despite two bids being rejected, the Bundesliga champions eventually got their man for around £86m (Sky Sports).

It has been a strong start for the England captain out in Germany, too. Kane has now bagged five goals in his first six games for his new club (Transfermarkt).

Funnily enough, Spurs are coping pretty well without their former star striker. Under Ange Postecoglou, the Lilywhites have made an unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign and are playing the kind of exciting football fans have longed for.

Can Spurs sign Harry Kane back?

It has emerged in the last 24 hours, however, that there could be a way back to North London for Kane should he ever want to return. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy confirmed in an interview with Bloomberg that the deal to sell Kane included an option to buy him back one day.

Sky Sports clarified the situation somewhat last night, stating Spurs will have first refusal to match any bid from a Premier League rival if Bayern were to accept any advances for Kane in the future.

Now, Bayern Munich’s sporting director, Christoph Freund has addressed the matter. He told DAZN (DAZN – as relayed by Fabrizio Romano): “Spurs buy-back clause for Harry Kane? We never reveal anything about contract details. We have a four-year contract with him. We are very, very happy and are planning long-term with him at Bayern. He will shape this team and an era here.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Harry Kane has been gone a little over a month, so any talk over him leaving Bayern or coming back to Spurs is irrelevant really. We have got a good thing going without him, and he is doing well over in Germany, so there is not really any use in thinking about whether he would come back in a few years time.
