Arsenal’s Paul Merson has expressed his disappointment with Harry Kane’s (Tottenham) ‘transfer saga’.
German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are in talks with Tottenham to sign Kane. “Bayern Munich are preparing a substantial offer that Tottenham can accept” and “both clubs remain ‘confident’ that a deal can be done,” Sky Sports reported today.
Bayern Munich CEO Jan Christian Dresden and technical director Marco Neppe flew to London on March 31 to hold talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. Bayern Munich proposed a transfer fee of £82 million (approximately $135.5 billion) 꽁머니지급.
Levy is demanding £100 million for Kane, but the mood is positive. Kane’s contract with Tottenham ends next June. If he doesn’t re-sign and stays for another year, he will leave next summer for no fee. Tottenham are not without options.
Merson is disappointed with the situation: “I expected Kane to score the most goals in the league this season if he stayed at Tottenham. But I keep hearing about Bayern Munich. It’s something I never thought would happen in a million years,” he confessed.
He added: “The negotiations are continuing. If he stays at Tottenham, people will forget what happened last season. He scored 30 goals in the Premier League for a poor Spurs side. He also missed out on qualifying for Europe. Kane finished six goals behind Ellingholm in the league, and Spurs really didn’t play well.” “But Spurs have now brought in James Maddison. He’s going to help Kane score a lot of goals. So I’m predicting Kane to be the top scorer this season.”
Tottenham signed Maddison for £40 million in the summer transfer window. An attacking midfielder, he can also play on the flanks and is creative in getting forward.
“I’m here to win,” said Maddison. I know a lot of people talk a lot about how long it’s been since Tottenham won the title. If I didn’t believe we could win it, I wouldn’t be here,” he said, expressing strong confidence.
However, his England teammate Kane is preparing to leave Tottenham.
