European transfer market expert Florian Plettenberg, 42, took a swipe at Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, 61, during a live broadcast. He demanded that Harry Kane be sold to Bayern Munich.

“Plettenberg criticized Levy during a live broadcast,” the UK’s Sports Bible reported on September 9.

Munich made a move for Kane at the end of last season. After Robert Lewandowski, their front man for eight seasons, left for Barcelona, they were left without an adequate replacement. Serge Gnabry, the team’s top scorer with 14 league goals, stepped up, but Gnabry is more of a winger or second striker than a frontline striker.

Munich’s first transfer offer for Kane dates back two months. They made an initial offer of £60 million ($99.6 million) in June, but Levy didn’t even snort. They then upped the ante in July with a second offer of £75 million, but Levy remained unresponsive.

Instead of accompanying him on Munich’s Asian tour, Munich Chairman Jan Christian Dresden and Technical Director Marco Neppe traveled to London, England, to meet with Mr. Levy. Mr. Dresden had lunch with Mr. Levy and offered him €95 million, including incentives. But again, it didn’t work. Munich’s first, second, and third offers were met with a characteristic silence.

A few days later, Munich made Levy a final offer of €100 million. However, Levy did not change his stance that he would only negotiate above €120 million. With the burning in Munich behind him, Levy flew to Miami for a leisurely vacation. It was a de facto rejection.

Plettenberg, a journalist for the German edition of Sky Sports, has been covering the Kane saga for months, advocating for the club’s need for a new striker. He is also known for breaking the news of Kim Min-jae’s move to Munich.

${IC22}While explaining Kane’s transfer during a live broadcast on Sky Sports, Plettenberg turned to the camera and said, “Mr. Levy, if you’re watching me, please accept Munich’s offer! Let Kane go to Munich,” he urged. “The negotiations are going nowhere and I’m getting more and more annoyed, and it’s not just the fans who are getting annoyed, it’s me,” he said, taking a jab at Levy’s negotiating style.

However, it seems unlikely that Levy will let Kane go despite his strong requests. According to Sports Illustrated, “Plettenberg’s opinion is likely to be ignored. Levy wants to hold on to Kane, who is a mainstay and important asset for the Spurs.” “If the move were to go through, it would be Munich’s highest transfer fee in club history. However, Munich coach Thomas Tuchel will likely have to field a squad without Kane.”

Kane has one year left on his Tottenham contract. Even if he doesn’t make the move to Munich this summer, he will likely leave Spurs as a free agent next year. “Spurs need to resolve Kane’s transfer before the transfer window closes,” says Sports Illustrated. A re-signing could be the solution for Spurs,” and “it would be a huge boost for new manager Postecoglou.”

If Levy wants to keep Kane, he’ll offer him the highest weekly wage in the English Premier League (EPL). Last month, the Telegraph reported that Levy had pulled out the £400,000-a-week card for Kane. If the offer goes through, Kane will join Elling Holland and Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) as the highest paid players in the EPL.

Meanwhile, Kane is well into the EPL’s preseason schedule ahead of the new season. Head coach Enze Postecoglou has put his trust in Kane by starting him in three of the last four games, and he repaid his new manager’s faith with a four-goal outburst against Donetsk Shakhtar (Ukraine) at Tottenham’s home on Aug. 8.

We are now just four days away from the start of the EPL. Tottenham will open their EPL campaign against Brentford on Sept. 13. “Kane hopes to finalize his decision before the start of the EPL,” Germany’s Bild reported. Once the league starts, Kane has no intention of leaving,” according to the German publication. 안전놀이터
