Harry Kane agrees to switch as president says Man Utd will pay $87m for a Liverpool replay – Liverpool.com

Liverpool are very rarely involved when it comes to the window’s biggest transfer sagas. There have been one or two notable exceptions, but FSG’s tenure has generally been characterized by efficient, “sensible” business conduct.

That’s why it was so surprising – and yes, exciting – when Liverpool were named in connection with Jude Bellingham over a long period of time. This would have been a great transfer, but in the end it turned out to be a stretch too far, with the Reds eventually pulling out well before the summer.

At this point, the logic has been scrutinized to an inch. Liverpool didn’t feel they could adequately complete the required rebuilding task if they spent that much on Bellingham, and in any case were unsure about choosing Anfield, so opted to use the money to sign three good players instead of one generation of talent. .

And so another transfer window passes where Liverpool are merely an observer of the blockbuster moves. One of the biggest potential activities concerns Harry Kane, who is the subject of serious interest from Bayern Munich.

While Manchester United have also received interest, it seems highly unlikely that Spurs would ever approve such a move. As a result, Erik ten Hag’s side are said to be looking at more of a Liverpool replay, with a club president claiming the Red Devils are preparing a sizeable bid.

Here, Liverpool.com is scanning around the other major sides in the Premier League and across Europe to take a look at what’s going on at the other clubs.

Liverpool repeat could beckon for Manchester United

Under the leadership of Jürgen Klopp and in particular Pep Lijnders, Liverpool has recently shown a preference for the Portuguese market. The assistant manager knows it well, having worked at Porto before, and there seems to be a belief throughout the club hierarchy that there is value to be found in Europe’s ‘sixth tier’.

It sits just outside the traditional big five, but nevertheless offers a high standard, as well as regular opportunities for players from the top clubs to test themselves in the Champions League. Liverpool have been confident enough in the recent past to approve big deals for both Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez.

Now it looks like Manchester United could follow suit. It has also shopped there before, buying Bruno Fernandes among others, and this summer looks set to go to Benfica and sign the man who was effectively Núñez’s replacement.

That’s according to Correio da Manha (print edition via Man Utd News) who reports that President Rui Costa has claimed Manchester United are willing to pay nearly $87m (£69m) for Gonçalo Ramos.

Liverpool. com says: Ramos was just starting to make a name for himself when Liverpool signed Núñez, to the point where some suggested he should be watched instead. Certainly, as the main man at Benfica, his price tag has skyrocketed in a similar way.

This would really be a repeat of Liverpool for Manchester United, with Ramos offering much the same risk and advantage as Núñez. The latter was more productive during his last season in Portugal, but it seems that his successor will cost a little less money.

It is clear that big clubs continue to believe that the Portuguese league is a suitable proving ground, despite Núñez having a relatively tough first season. There remains plenty of optimism that he will stir, and no doubt he will be desperate to do so especially when he goes up against his old teammate.

Harry Kane ‘agrees’ to Bayern Munich transfer

Harry Kane has given the ‘OK’ to Bayern Munich through his camp, although an agreement has yet to be reached with the Spurs on a fee. This is reported by the German outlet Sport Bild.

Although Bayern is not yet allowed to negotiate directly with Kane and nothing has yet been signed, the club has spoken with his father Pat and brother Charlie. An agreement has been reached, whereby the striker would have agreed to the switch.

An initial offer of $77 million (£60 million/€70 million) plus add-ons was rejected by Spurs. It is thought that Bayern Munich will return with an improved offer (via the BBC).

Liverpool. com says: When news broke that Bayern Munich had made an offer, it seemed clear there must have been some encouragement from Kane. While he cannot formally negotiate with the Bavarians, the reality of the transfer market is clear and a bid usually means a club is confident it has the player on its side.

Whether Bayern Munich can make Spurs move is another question. The one big advantage is that Daniel Levy would certainly prefer to sell him out of the Premier League, away from the clutches of rivals. If he has an inclination to make money rather than risk losing Kane for free, then this seems like an ideal opportunity.

This would also work out nicely for Liverpool. It is clear that FSG would never pursue Kane, but it would also not want to see him spearhead the attack of Manchester City, Chelsea or Manchester United.
