Tottenham Hotspur ultimately relented this summer after refusing to sell star scorer Harry Kane for years, sanctioning a €120 million trade to Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich. However, this does not mean Kane has played his final game for Tottenham.
Tottenham, it turns out, put a condition in their contract with Bayern that permits them to buy Kane back from them at some time. During a recent appearance at a fan conference, London club chairman Daniel Levy acknowledged this.
Levy was initially asked about the existence of the buy-back clause by an audience member but was reluctant to respond. However, when pushed by a host, Levy delivered a positive response. “Of course,” Levy said.
Harry Kane joined Tottenham’s youth academy in 2004 and signed his professional contract with the team in 2010. He went on to play 430 games with the club in all competitions, scoring 278 goals and contributing 64 assists. However, the England international didn’t manage to win a single trophy with the club, which is why he ended up expressing interest in a new challenge.
Kane and Tottenham both seem in a good spot after their split. The 30-year-old player already has five goals and two assists in just six games with Bayern. Tottenham, on the other hand, are second on the Premier League table with four wins and one draw after first five games.
