The Daily Mail have revealed that Harry Kane is unlikely to consider returning to Tottenham Hotspur as his relationship with Daniel Levy became quite frosty over the summer.

When asked in the fan forum at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday if Tottenham have a buy-back clause on Kane, Levy confirmed the rumours. 

However, it has since been revealed by Sky Sports Football Daily that Spurs have a right-to-match clause rather than a buy-back clause, which means that the Lilywhites would be given the chance to match any offer that Bayern accept for the striker from another English club.

Harry Kane is unlikely to consider a Spurs return

The same information regarding the right-to-match clause has now also been confirmed by The Mail, who go on to suggest that the 30-year-old is unlikely to be in favour of a return to N17.

The outlet reveals that Levy made a summer switch to Bayern ‘increasingly difficult’ for Kane and even pushed back on parts of the deal at the last moment, which led the striker to miss his original scheduled flight to Munich.

In addition, the England captain was allegedly blocked from re-entering Hotspur Way in the hours leading up to his departure after the club had accepted Bayern’s offer.

As a result, Kane’s relationship with Levy is said to have been ‘strained’ and The Mail suggest it is a ‘significant hurdle’ towards the Tottenham academy graduate’s future return.

Spurs Web Opinion

I have no doubts that Kane will want to finish his career in England. However, whether or not a return to Spurs is on the cards is unclear at the moment. That depends on several different factors and a lot could change in three or four years.
