Tottenham Hotspur has unveiled a list of players who will join them on the Asia-Pacific tour. Harry Kane (30), who dreams of going to Bayern Munich, also accompanies the tour.
On the 15th (Korean time), Tottenham said on the club website, “The squad for the pre-season Asia-Pacific tour has been confirmed. We will play against the Lion City Sailors.”
31 people, including Son Heung-min, were listed on the list. Most of the key players were included, including Kane, who was engulfed in Munich transfer rumors, and the “freshman trio,” Guglielmo Vicario, Manor Solomon, James Madison, and Destiny Udoji, who joined after a loan from Udinese. Erik Dyer, Ivan Perisic, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovanni Rosselso are among the candidates for release.
Tottenham announced that “the squad will move to Perth, Australia on the evening of the 14th.” However, Son Heung-min left Korea separately without visiting London, England. He flew to Perth via Singapore via Incheon International Airport on the morning of the 14th.
Several players have been ruled out due to injuries. Rodrigo Bentancur, Fraser Foster, Brian Hill, Troy Parrott and Ryan Sessegnon, who injured their knee last season, will remain at Hotspur Way (Tottenham Training Ground) to focus on rehabilitation.
‘Captain’ Hugo Lloris was also allowed to sit out of the tour to pursue a transfer. He has been linked with Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal and his hometown side OGC Nice, but has recently been reported to be close to joining Inter Milan.
Kane’s name stands out the most. With his contract expiring at the end of this season, he is dreaming of a move to Munich this summer. Tottenham is trying to hold on to Kane even by offering a weekly wage of £400,000 (approximately 666.54 million won), but he is refusing to renew the contract.
Kane only wants to go to Munich. Individual agreements have already been virtually finalized. Germany’s ‘Bild’ said that the two sides had reached an agreement in principle, “If Kane leaves Tottenham, he will only go to Bayern. He also refused to transfer to ‘French Champion’ Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). He said that PSG transfer was not an option. It was clear,” he said.
It is known that director Thomas Tuchel personally flew to London to persuade Kane. Reporter Florian Plettenberg of ‘Sky Sports Germany’ said, “Kane has made it 100% clear that he wants to join Munich. He is not considering moving to another team.” I am confident that I can win.”
However, Tottenham has no intention of letting go of Kane easily. According to ‘The Athletic’, Munich offered a bonus amount of 70 million euros (about 100 billion won) for the signing of Kane last month, but was rejected.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy reportedly wants 120 million pounds (approximately 199.9 billion won) for his ransom. It is far from the amount토토사이트 Munich has proposed. England’s ‘Daily Mail’ said, “Tottenham is estimating Kane’s transfer fee at £120 million. Munich seems difficult to even get close to £100 million (approximately 166.6 billion won), which would allow Levy to sit at the negotiating table.” said.
Germany’s ‘Sport 1’ also said, “Bayern prefers Kane the most. The board is likely to make at least one more offer,” but “But I don’t want to do anything crazy. I wouldn’t want to pay much more than 100 million euros.”
First of all, Kane plans to observe the situation while participating in the pre-season tour. He seems to be considering a free agent (FA) transfer a year later rather than pursuing a transfer despite Tottenham’s opposition.
England’s ‘Evening Standard’ said: “If Tottenham continue to reject Munich’s offer, Kane has no intention of pushing for a move this summer. The future is still unknown, but he has had positive talks with new manager Engie Postecoglu.” said. It is a story that the situation is different from two years ago, when Kane was forced to skip pre-season training and aimed for Manchester City.
Sport 1 also said, “A renewal of the contract for Kane is not under consideration”, but “he sent a signal that he is ready to leave Tottenham next year as a free agent (FA) if he cannot leave Tottenham this summer. Munich is in a very advantageous position.” did.
For now, Kane seems likely to join Tottenham in the 2023-2024 season. Unless Tottenham and Munich reach a dramatic compromise, coach Tuchel’s dream of a world-class striker is expected to be delayed.
