The negotiations between FC Bayern and Tottenham president Daniel Levy have been famously tough. Now the Briton claims that Spurs would have a buy-back right
Tottenham Hotspur have the option to bring back Harry Kane, according to club president Daniel Levy. “There is a buy-back clause,” the 61-year-old businessman told a Spurs fan meeting, according to British media. That clause was part of the deal with the Munich club, he added.
Levy did not give any further details about the terms of the clause or the possible buy-back amount. Kane would be “welcome back at any time”, Levy had already stressed when the transfer was announced. “He is a much loved and valued member of the Spurs family and has a place in our history forever”.
Levy had long resisted the sale of the England captain, who had played for the Londoners since his youth and had risen to become a club icon there. After weeks of negotiations, Kane had moved to Munich for a fee of 100 million euros.
Kane: “No goodbye forever “
The 30-year-old signed a contract with Bayern until 30 June 2027. In a message to fans at the time, he said: “This is not goodbye forever, you never know how things will develop. We will see each other again soon…”
Ahead of his Champions League start with Bayern against Manchester United on Wednesday night, Kane reported he “always has an eye” on Spurs “for the rest of my life. I’m very happy to see how the team is playing and that the fans are happy with it. And I will continue to follow that”.
