Journalist Graeme Bailey has suggested that Harry Kane is considering leaving Tottenham to win trophies and returning to the club a few years down the line.

The optimism that was present among sections of Spurs fans about Kane committing his future to the club has now dwindled on the back of the club’s struggles over the last few weeks.

Finishing outside the top four now looks to be a major possibility for the Lilywhites, with The Telegraph reporting a couple of days ago that Spurs might be willing to sell the striker for around £100m at the end of the season, and potentially for an even lower fee to a foreign club.

Among the various clubs credited with an interest in Kane, Bayern Munich have been named the most often by various outlets over the last few months, with 90 min reporting on Tuesday that the Bundesliga giants have not given up on their pursuit of the England captain. 

Bailey has now suggested that the 29-year-old could move to the Allianz Arena next summer before returning to Spurs in the future to break Alan Sharer’s Premier League record.

The journalist said on Talking Transfers Podcast (17/01/23): “Bayern Munich still hold an interest, they haven’t found their Lewandowski replacement yet. It’s really interesting this situation and Bayern still think, that in an ideal world, they would sign Harry Kane this summer.

“The thing with Kane is that he has a huge wage packet to go along with his fee and clubs do have to consider this. Would Daniel Levy sell him to a Premier League rival?

“There have been a lot of talks about Man United over the past 10 years. Would he rather him go to Bayern Munich, maybe with a buy-back to come back?

“The line we’re getting from Tottenham is that they want him to sign a new contract, they’re fairly confident from what we gather from that end. But how can they be?

“I think Kane may look at it like that where he could have two or three years at Bayern and then come back and get that Premier League record possibly, I think that’s how he’s looking at it.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Realistically, Kane needs another three to four seasons to break Shearer’s record and so, I do not think he will take the risk of moving abroad at this stage of his career. It is starting to seem increasingly likely that the striker will head to Manchester United next summer, given the upward trajectory that the Red Devils seem to be on under Erik Ten Hag.
