Report: Bayern Munich and Spurs agreed additional detail during Harry Kane deal

According to German outlet Abend Zeitung, Bayern Munich agreed to play two friendlies with Tottenham as part of the deal to take Harry Kane to the Allianz Arena.

As one would expect of a transfer of this size, widely different figures have been reported over the last few months with regards to the fee Bayern paid for Kane in the summer.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has suggested that the fee could rise to as high as £120m if certain add-ons are met.

However, Bayern president Herbert Hainer claimed last month that the German club will not even have to pay €100m (£86.7m) for the striker unless they win several trophies (FAZ via TZ).

Two friendlies agreed between Spurs and Bayern

This has now been backed up by AZ, who say that the fee Bayern paid for the England captain ‘was ultimately less than 100 million euros’.

It is explained that as a part of the deal, two friendly games were agreed between the clubs, with all of the proceeds from the matches going to Spurs.

The outlet adds that it is unclear where and when these two friendly matches between Bayern and Tottenham will take place.

This makes a lot of sense from Spurs’ standpoint as the club earns millions in gate receipts and food and drink sales for each game that they host at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Friendlies against Bayern are likely to be a sell-out.
