Transfer Talk: Tottenham have buyback clause for Harry Kane
The summer transfer window has closed throughout Europe, but there are still moves in the works and plenty of gossip swirling around. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings, goings and, of course, done deals!
TOP STORY: Spurs have Kane buyback clause
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has revealed that the London club inserted a buyback clause into the deal that saw Harry Kane join Bayern Munich in August, according to the Evening Standard.
In one of the headline moves of the transfer window, Kane joined the Bundesliga champions on a four-year deal as Spurs agreed a package worth at least £100 million rather than risking losing the striker as a free agent next summer.
During a video that Kane released around the move, the 30-year-old said: “It’s not a goodbye, because you never know how things pan out in the future … I’ll see you soon.”
Levy has now confirmed that Spurs have an option to re-sign Kane in the future, doing so while speaking at a fan forum on Tuesday alongside men’s and women’s managers Ange Postecoglou and Robert Vilahamn as well as captains Heung-min Son and Beth England.
Kane also spoke about Spurs ahead of Bayern Munich’s Champions League match against Manchester United, stating: “I’m always keeping an eye on them and I’ll keep an eye on Tottenham for the rest of my life.
“I’m really happy to see the team playing the way they are and to see the fans happy is a great thing. They’ve got a massive game coming up [against Arsenal on Sunday] so, for sure, I’ll see how they get on over the course of the season.”
Kane has scored four goals in as many Bundesliga matches since joining Bayern and provided one assist.
