Harry Kane’s buy-back clause for Tottenham, according to transfer analyst Fabrizio Romano, will “not allow them to sign him again whenever they want.”
Kane transferred from Tottenham to Bayern Munich in a transaction estimated to be worth £100 million during the summer transfer window.
The 30-year-old started his final year of employment during the summer, so an exit was always an option if a competitive offer was made.
With five goals and two assists in his first six outings in Germany, the England international has had a fantastic start.
Kane was linked with Manchester United before he joined with Bayern Munich, and it has been said that the Red Devils were originally the forward’s top choice.
If Kane ever decides to return to the Premier League, United might make another attempt to get him, but Tottenham CEO Daniel Levy earlier this week said they were able to negotiate a buy-back provision when they allowed their prized asset to join Bayern Munich.
Romano, however, has finally made known the “truth” surrounding this “clause,” which is “not customary.”
Daniel Levy has mentioned a buy-back clause for Harry Kane after Tottenham decided to sell him to Bayern Munich in the summer, and Romano told Caught Offside that he merely wanted to check some facts with his sources before providing as much information as he could on this website.
“After consulting with a variety of sources, some have refuted this information, while others have confirmed it while adding a few extra features that set it apart from a straightforward buy-back clause.
“Some people close to the negotiation have explained that it is not a traditional buy-back clause, so it’s not the kind of clause that will allow Tottenham to sign Harry Kane again whenever they want,” a source close to the negotiations said.
Later, Romano noted that Bayern “have agreed to notify Tottenham” if they “decide to sell Kane.”
The condition simply states that Bayern has committed to notify Tottenham in the future if they decide to move Kane, according to Romano. Some sources have rejected it, while others have verified it.
Tottenham will get a formal call from Bayern to let them know about the situation if they have suggestions or offers, specifically from Premier League clubs.
“Tottenham will then have the option to counter any offers, but nothing changes on the player side because, in the end, Kane, and not Spurs or any other club, will decide the future of the player.
It’s a sort of gentleman’s agreement between Bayern and Tottenham to allow them to match beds in the future, but once again, only if Bayern choose to sell the player.
