Kane, 30, departed his boyhood club for the German champions in a £100million transfer over the .
It brought an end to an incredible Tottenham career, during which thecaptain netted 280 goals in 435 games.
However, club chief Levy claims Spurs may not have seen the last of the legendary forward.
Speaking at a Tottenham fan forum on Tuesday, Levy reportedly declared: “There is a buy-back clause.”
It is unclear what the figure is, or when Spurs can reactivate it.
Kane penned a four-year deal with Bayern until 2027, as the Germans smashed their transfer record with a £100m agreement.
He has so far netted four goals in five games under ex-Chelsea boss .
But he missed out on the chance to win his first-ever career trophy as Bayern lost the German Super Cup final 3-0 to.
As for Spurs, they seem to be enjoying life post-Kane.
New boss Ange Postecoglou has guided them to second in the table with four wins from five games.
Reflecting on the Aussie’s style of management, Levy added: “He’s just a normal bloke, direct and honest, he doesn’t play games, doesn’t say one thing to me and another to someone else, and this club needed to go back to its roots.
“There was a lot of pressure on me, (Spurs) needed a manager to focus on the team, youth, the club, and be part of the team. He’s a breath of fresh air.”
Postecoglou also had his say on Kane’s exit, as well as Spurs’ transfer signings.
The formersupremo said: “We had more targets but Brennan [Johnson] was a great signing, the right profile a great guy, he will play the way we play.
“I left Daniel to his own work but pestered the people around him.
“With Harry leaving it could have been chaotic but I felt everyone dealt with it well. In the cold light of day I felt we ended up in a good place after the window.”
Levy added: “I want to win as much as anyone else. The frustration of not winning and the pressure from some players and a large part of the fan base impacted me, it was a lot of pressure.
“We came so close with Mauricio Pochettino and we changed strategy and hired win-now managers. It didn’t work, wrong hires.
“So maybe it will take longer, maybe we need this strategy and that’s why I hired Ange.”
