As PSG seeks to strengthen its squad this summer with a top-level striker, Harry Kane's name has emerged as one of the targets. However, the Englishman reportedly has his heart set on joining one and only one club, and it might not be based in Paris.
During the transfer window, PSG is determined to address the void in their squad by acquiring a world-class no. 9, something they have lacked for a few years and was glaring last season.
Various names such as Victor Osimhen, Randal Kolo Muani, Goncalo Ramos, and Harry Kane have been making it to the rumor mill as potential signings for the last few weeks.
Although never considered a leading candidate to land Tottenham's striker Harry Kane, PSG is said to have met with Kane's entourage a few weeks ago just to test the waters. The striker, however, seems to have a clear preference for his future, and it points toward joining German giants of Bayern Munich according to the latest reports.
According to Sport 1, Kane's desire is to join Bayern ahead of next season. It is expected that he will communicate this to his Tottenham bosses upon his return to training this week.
The proposal from the German champions has convinced him, and it's also believed that the cultural impact would be softer in Germany than Franch in the case of the long-time Spurs players moving places.
The two clubs are currently in contact to finalize the potential transfer, with negotiations expected to continue through July. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is known for being a tough negotiator unwilling to sell, and Bayern is not inclined to go overboard in this deal.
Bayern's latest offer "stands at around €80m," a sum that Levy still doesn't consider fair for the talented striker. Bayern have no intention of increasing it, particularly as Kane has only one year left on his contract.
The strategy PSG seem to be following here is just playing the waiting game. They will stay put, they won't submit any type of offer, and only in the event of Bayern retiring from the negotiations and leaving Kane frustrated without a move in sight and Tottenham risking losing him for nothing next June, strike with a last-minute proposal.
That seems like a risky proposition (Bayern can always close the deal first) but also a smart approach to try and snatch a player on a lower fee when he nor his club have no other option left.
