Ally McCoist has reacted to Daniel Levy confirming that Tottenham Hotspur have inserted a buy-back clause in Harry Kane’s Bayern Munich contract.
The 30-year-old, who has scored five goals in six games for Bayern Munich since his club-record transfer, left Tottenham with one-year left on his deal.
Former Scotland striker McCoist thinks the option to insert a buy-back clause by Daniel Levy is ‘clever’, but he added that it’s ‘impossible’ and ‘nobody is going to accept’ a time clause on it, as he told talkSPORT (20/09/23 at 6:30 am).
Whilst everyone now knows that there is this buy-back clause in the deal for Harry Kane, it has raised the question as to what are the details of it.
What if Harry Kane signs a new Bayern contract down the line? Does it change it? Will it expire after a certain period?
Only time will tell on that one, as McCoist thinks it’s a ‘good bIt of business to have up your sleeve’.
Daniel Levy confirms buy-back clause on Harry Kane
“It’s a good option for Tottenham,” said McCoist. “It’s impossible to have a time clause in it. Nobody is going to accept that, I wouldn’t have thought.
“Unless, you said to Bayern ‘right, we buy him back for £45 million in 2, 3 or four years’. That’s not going to happen.
“It’s clever from Spurs, of course it is. We all know that Harry is a Tottenham man. It’s probably a good bit of business to have up your sleeve if you need it.”
Will Kane return to Tottenham?
Some might say, just like Mauricio Pochettino, move on and don’t go back.
Yes, Kane is regarded much higher than the now-Chelsea boss, but when things were going wrong for Spurs last season, fans were calling for Pochettino’s name.
That just proves how not going back works out, because those fans who probably wanted Poch back, are now glad that he didn’t return because of how Ange Postecoglou has changed things around for them.
