Daniel Levy ‘laughed himself to death’ after Bayern’s Kane statement – Steffen Freund claims

According to Steffen Freund, Daniel Levy ‘laughed himself to death’ when Uli Hoeness, honorary president of Bayern Munich, said what he did about Harry Kane.

While the Spurs leadership, including Levy, were reportedly dissatisfied with some of the words coming out of the Bavarian club (Bild), Bayern publicly courted Harry Kane during the summer transfer season.

Hoeness even opined last month (via Sport 1 and Sky Sports) that Tottenham would eventually have to “give up” and modify their position toward the England captain.

Harry KaneEven though the 30-year-old only had a year left on his deal with the North London club, Spurs ultimately received a premium for him.

Alasdair Gold of Football.London reports that if certain add-on requirements are satisfied, the sum might go to as much as £120 million.

Kane’s desperation for Bayern would have made Levy happy

Freund, who played more than 100 times for Spurs and worked as Andre Villas-Boas’ assistant coach at White Hart Lane, believed that Levy would have found Hoeness’ statement amusing and that the Tottenham chairman was never going to change his position.

Levy laughed himself to death reading the Uli Hoeness interview, the German told Ran.de. That didn’t disturb him all that much. In the end, he surely got what he wanted, and Bayern had to give in.

The Kane saga’s course made it abundantly evident that Levy pushed Bayern to the brink until they had to give up to his demands.

Levy may have also been issuing a warning to other clubs not to pursue players who Tottenham does not want to sell in the future with that move, in addition to sending a message to the Bundesliga’s powerhouses.
