The transfer speculation surrounding Tottenham’s Son Heung-min (31) and Tottenham’s Harry Kane (30) and Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Kylian Mbappe (22) is taking shape. The focus now seems to be on who will part ways with their clubs first this summer.

Kane, who is out of contract next summer, wants to leave Tottenham. Bayern Munich are interested in signing Kane after the departure of Robert Lewandowski (Barcelona).

European media outlets have already reported that Munich and Kane have reached a personal agreement. Furthermore, the Bavarians have already made two offers to Tottenham. After both were rejected, the Bavarians are hoping to get Spurs’ attention again with a third offer.

Spurs have reportedly set a minimum price tag of £100 million for Kane. However, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has no intention of selling Kane. His argument is that he won’t sell Kane, even if he doesn’t get paid a penny as a free agent.

In order to keep him, Spurs have offered him a new contract, which includes a significant increase in his weekly wages from £300,000 to £400,000 (approximately $650 million).

However, a report in the UK’s Telegraph on Thursday (July 24) claimed that a change in Levy’s basic policy may be inevitable. According to the article, Tottenham owner Joe Louis doesn’t want to give Kane away for free. He has instructed Levy to “sell this summer” if he cannot re-sign Kane.

Germany’s Bild reported earlier in the day that Bayern Munich will offer Kane a four- to five-year contract. This was taken as a sign that the club was confident of keeping Kane.

After Joe Louis’ comments, Manchester United, who had withdrawn from the race for Kane, rejoined the fray. Now that it’s clear that Tottenham are selling Kane, they’re starting to show interest again. However, it is relatively unlikely that Levy will sell Kane to a fellow Premier League team.

In the end, Kane will most likely go to Munich if Spurs refuse to re-sign him. Kane, who wants to win trophies, also tried to move to Manchester City two years ago, but Levy kept him at the club. As such, he is desperate to complete a move this summer.

Mbappe is also keen to leave PSG. Last month, French publication L’Equipe reported that Mbappe would not exercise his option to extend his contract, causing a stir in the PSG hierarchy.

Mbappe opted to stay at PSG on a two-year deal instead of joining Real Madrid a year ago. The decision was made after French President Emmanuel Macron tried to convince him to stay.

However, Mbappe’s decision not to exercise his option kept him at PSG until June 2024. Like Kane, he has one year left on his contract.

Mbappe also raised PSG’s ire by calling them a “divided team”. When PSG signed Mbappe, they had an option for a one-year extension, but they believe Mbappe stabbed them in the back. PSG believes that Mbappe had already signed a contract with Real Madrid to become a free agent.

In the end, PSG decided to put Mbappe on the market with a price tag of €200 million. Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal, who were disappointed to miss out on Lionel Messi, are now lining up a €400 million bid. That’s a €200 million transfer fee and a €200 million salary for Mbappe.

PSG initially left Mbappe out of their preseason squad. They’ve also taken the initiative to remove Mbappe from their tour of Japan. This showed Mbappe that there would be no free transfers next year.

At the same time, PSG seems to be using appeasement tactics with Mbappe. PSG has reportedly offered Mbappe a 10-year, €1 billion contract.

Interestingly, PSG are also considering a move for Kane if they let Mbappe go. “PSG want to sign Kane from Tottenham for the aftermath of Mbappe’s departure,” Spain’s Relevo reported earlier in the day.

Kane has been part of Tottenham’s pre-season schedule. He started a friendly against Leicester City in Thailand on Sept. 23, but the match was canceled due to heavy rain.

Mbappe, meanwhile, has been excluded from PSG’s pre-season program and is training in Paris. With the injured Lee and Neymar both participating in PSG’s tour of Japan, Mbappe was left out of the roster and remained with the club.

In a bizarre coincidence, two top strikers are up for sale at the same time, prompting big European clubs and even the Saudi government to make moves. It’s looking increasingly likely that a mega-transfer will happen this summer. 파워볼사이트
