Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has revealed that a buy-back clause was included in Harry Kane’s transfer to Bayern Munich.
The England striker left his boyhood club this summer to join the Bundesliga champions for an £86m fee, with add-ons taking the overall value of the deal close to £100m.
Kane signed a four-year contract that will see him earn £25m, or £400,000 per week, over the course of the deal.
Spurs fans hope to see Kane back in north London before he retires, and they have received a boost after Levy informed a fans’ forum that the option is there for the club to re-sign the forward.
“There is a buy back clause,” the chairman confirmed at the event, at which manager Ange Postecoglou, new captain Heung-min Son, women’s head coach Robert Vilahamn and Lioness Bethany England were also present.
After two decades at the club Kane left a video message for fans in which he suggested that he could return in the future. “It’s not a goodbye, because you never know how things pan out in the future… I’ll see you soon.”
When Kane’s transfer to Bayern was confirmed by Tottenham in August, Levy said in a statement: “It goes without saying, he’s always welcome back. He’s a much loved and valued member of the Spurs family, forever in our history.”
Kane has enjoyed a good start to life in the Bundesliga, scoring four goals and providing an assist in his first four league games for Bayern.
