Daniel Levy of Tottenham Hotspur confirmed Tuesday night at a fans forum for his side that there is indeed a buyback clause in Harry Kane’s contract with Bayern Munich and gave hope for its return by Spurs fans.
Kane’s move from Tottenham to Bayern Munich for an initial fee of PS100 million in August was one of the summer’s major transactions, prompting Tottenham to release a statement showing their continued support of him: “He is always welcome back; he remains part of our history and family at Spurs forever!”
Now that the buyback clause has been confirmed, speculation will likely increase about Kane donning Lilywhite shirt again in future seasons. Details surrounding his buyback agreement remain undisclosed leaving fans and pundits guessing as to its terms and conditions.
Harry Kane has his sights set firmly on life with Bayern Munich until 2027, yet how he feels about returning to Tottenham remains unclear. According to reports, when his transfer was nearly complete he was instructed by Bayern not to visit the Tottenham training ground so as not to say farewell personally or collect belongings; additionally his family were denied access to their box at the stadium.
Kane remains keenly involved with Tottenham despite living thousands of miles away, as evidenced by an interview conducted before Bayern’s Champions League clash against Manchester United. Kane expressed his admiration for Tottenham’s impressive start to their Premier League season – four wins and one draw from five games played so far.
Kane noted: “Target has had an outstanding start and I will keep an eye on them throughout my life. To see the team playing this way and their fans happy is great; hopefully they’ll want to keep it up as I see some massive games coming up [at Arsenal on Sunday]. Of course I will follow their progress over time!”
As the Premier League season unfolds and Bayern Munich pursues European glory, Harry Kane’s buyback clause adds an intriguing layer of uncertainty regarding his future and has left fans eagerly awaiting its progression over time.
