The future of Harry Kane is entering a crucial period. These will be fundamental weeks to decide the future of the English star, because the rumours continue but the truth is only one: the crucial figure for the decision on the Kane deal was, is and remains Daniel Levy, Tottenham chairman who will soon have to communicate his final choice on the English striker currently out of contract in June 2024.

In these hours, there has been talk in England of a possible return of Manchester United in the negotiations to sign Kane; it is no mystery that Erik ten Hag considers Harry the best striker in the world for his idea of play, quality and guaranteed goals...

However, Manchester United left the race in June because they believe that Tottenham absolutely do not want to sell Kane to them and that even in that case, the financial package between fees and salary would be beyond the club's reach.

That's why the recent rumors of a new negotiation between Manchester United and Kane have not found confirmation; obviously, if the price were to be much reduced, Erik ten Hag would like Kane but today it is an option considered very difficult.

Who is pushing like crazy to sign Kane is Bayern Munich. There is Thomas Tuchel behind the scenes of the deal: the German manager has already been insisting since the end of May, he considers Kane as a priority target and has no intention of negotiating for other strikers until Kane's situation won't be resolved.

After two official bids rejected by Tottenham, Bayern are set to bid again for Kane because they really want to try and tempt Spurs with another offer.

Kane has already given signs of openness to Bayern, he knows well that Tuchel is waiting for him with enthusiasm but he also knows very well - after what happened in 2021 with Manchester City - that convincing Daniel Levy is always difficult. But Bayern are there and there will be, they will insist these days to get it done.

And Paris Saint-Germain? It is certainly true that there have been contacts from Paris to understand if there is room for negotiation.

PSG are busy with the Mbappé saga and that doesn't help; Plus, the French club knows Kane is prioritizing Bayern right now. PSG want to be ready should there be any problems between Harry and Bayern, but as of today they are in second position in the race.

And once again, the key man is Daniel Levy. The Tottenham chairman who will try until the end to offer Kane a new contract in every way, to convince him of his project and to get a yes from Harry which today still seems very difficult.

For the first time, the temptation to say goodbye is serious and strong.
