Harry Kane in Saudi Arabia in two years? Ex-Bundesliga boss teases

Bayern have high hopes for Harry Kane. That’s why the club gave the Brit a contract until 2027. If ex-DFL boss Andreas Rettig has his way, then Kane could move on prematurely – to Saudi Arabia.

It’s been a long road that Bayern bosses have had to travel in recent weeks to bring the Harry Kane transfer saga to a successful conclusion. The transfer fee caused great astonishment in the football world. In the “Sport1” double pass, ex-DFL boss Andreas Rettig made a remarkable comment on the transfer of the record champions.

“There is no question that the sums are indecent. I think that FC Bayern is playing Saudi Arabia into their hands. If Kane has now signed a four-year contract, then you can still find a good buyer for him in two years’ time,” says Rettig.

It is more than doubtful that Bayern will let their new record striker go after just two years.

Rettig criticizes Bayern’s youth work: “Disastrous”

Rettig went even further and questioned FC Bayern’s transfer behavior: “I’m not completely convinced of the transfer strategy of the last few years. I expect FC Bayern to have a goal-oriented strategy that is geared towards years. That starts with the offspring. This has been disastrous at FC Bayern for years,” Rettig complained, taking up the criticism that came up again and again that despite large investments – such as in the Bayern campus – few talented people make it into the professional team.

Instead of investing huge sums in ready-made superstars, the 60-year-old calls for the focus to be placed on promoting young talent: “I can’t just pay 100 million euros for Mr. Kane, I have to develop a strategy that is in line with the youngsters.”

However, the people of Munich are aware that promoting young talent is at least as important. With youngster Frans Krätzig, who drew attention to himself with strong performances in preparation, there is already a promising talent in the starting blocks.
