Chairman Daniel Levy has come under fire for his lack of respect.
Harry Kane’s departure is still the hottest topic in the summer transfer window. Bayern Munich, in need of a striker, have been aggressive in their pursuit of Kane ever since they announced their intention to sign him, and they recently held talks with Tottenham Hotspur. The Bavarians tried to satisfy Tottenham in those talks.
However, Levy’s attitude has raised eyebrows with many. Despite the fact that negotiations were ongoing, Levy rejected Munich’s offer, informed them that he needed more money for the transfer, and then headed to the United States for a vacation. If the negotiations continue beyond the timeframe they have set for themselves, Munich will give up on signing Kane and look for other alternatives.
“Levy has ignored the deadline set by Munich to sign Kane,” the UK’s Telegraph reported. Munich set a deadline of midnight on Friday, but Levy refused to accept their offer. Levy has since flown to the United States, and Munich are considering abandoning their pursuit of Kane and exploring other options if Tottenham fail to meet the deadline.”
Germany’s Bild reported the same, saying, “According to our information, Levy is currently in Miami, where his family is on a two-week vacation. Levy, who is known in soccer circles as a negotiator, wants to extract more money from Munich. Munich offered a transfer fee of 93 million euros ($133.9 million) plus options for more than 100 million euros ($144 million), but Mr. Levy rejected the offer.”
It looks like negotiations are going the Spurs’ way. Tottenham’s Levy is considered a master negotiator and, conversely, a difficult target for other teams. Once again, it appears that Levy is negotiating on his own terms. 안전놀이터
The talks, which were originally expected to take place last week, were pushed back due to Spurs’ demands. Levy was represented by Tottenham and CEO Jan Christian Driessen by Munich. However, the talks did not go the way Munich wanted. According to the UK’s Sky Sports, “After talks with Tottenham, Munich decided that the offer fell short of what Tottenham wanted. The two sides discussed Kane over lunch in London, with talks continuing into the afternoon. There is a gap of around £20 million, but negotiations are continuing. It is understood that if the two clubs come to an agreement, Kane can officially talk to Munich. Tottenham will try to insert a buy-back clause to allow Kane to return to England in the future.”
A buy-back clause allows a player’s original club to buy him back at a later date for a certain amount of money. Tottenham are likely looking to insert a buy-back clause into Kane’s contract to leave the door open for a future return. The insertion of a buy-back clause is often a part of a player’s transfer process.
