PSG have set their sights on securing a striker, with Harry Kane emerging as their top priority. However, the ambitious move faces considerable obstacles, mainly having to beat German giants Bayern for the acquisition of the player.
Apart from Tottenham's steep asking price, PSG finds themselves in competition with Bayern Munich, who also seeks to acquire Kane's talents and is backed by the player's strong inclination to join the Bundesliga giants, according to The Telegraph.
PSG have reportedly prioritized acquiring one of Harry Kane, Rasmus Hojlund, or Dusan Vlahovic this summer, with Kane being the hottest commodity. The English striker is particularly drawn to Bayern Munich, evident in his preference for a move to the German club.
This preference for the England international has caused the prospective agreement between Tottenham's president, Daniel Levy, and PSG's counterpart, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, to fall through.
Despite the setback, PSG are not ready to give up the chase. The French club are prepared to outbid any other contenders for Kane's services, but the player himself would need to have a significant change of heart to consider an offer from them.
The truth is that as long as Kane prefers a move to Germany and Bayern remains in the chase, PSG won't be able to do anything to poach the striker from London.
At this point, Bayern Munich appear to be ahead in the race. With Kane's favor leaning towards Bayern, the Bavarian leaders are actively engaging in negotiations with Tottenham's chairman, Daniel Levy.
Financially, Bayern are poised to present an offer of around €105m, inching closer to Tottenham's asking price of €120. Discussions between the clubs are expected to keep going for a few days.
Although Kane has not formally communicated his desire to leave Tottenham, should he decide to part ways, Bayern Munich stands as his priority destination. Despite PSG's interest in him, the likelihood of Kane joining the Parisian ranks seems rather low.
