Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has played down talk of a blockbuster transfer to Bayern Munich but hailed the Bundesliga giants a ‘top, top club’. Bayern are the most recent European heavyweight linked with a move for Kane, whose Tottenham contract expires at the top of next season.
Kane pushed for a switch to Manchester City in 2021, but Spurs’ stubborn stance saw the Premier League champions fail with a suggestion price over £100million, they usually signed Erling Haaland this summer. Exit talk regarding the England captain simmered in the identical transfer window after Antonio Conte guided Spurs back into the Champions League.
But now 29, solely Champions League football may not do it for Kane as he weighs up his options beyond his current deal in north London. And there aren’t many, if any, clubs who do prolific trophy-winning higher than Bayern, linked with Kane after Robert Lewandowski’s summer departure.
Ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt, he told reporters: “I’m focused on Tottenham Hotspur and attempting to do my best for us. Needless to say, Bayern are a top, top club, but all of my concentration is on Tottenham and attempting to win tomorrow night.”

When asked in regards to the prospect of signing Kane to interchange Lewandowski during pre-season, Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann wasn’t shy in admitting his admiration but admitted his valuation was a major hurdle to leap. “He’s very expensive, that is the problem – but he’s a superb player,” Nagelsmann explained.
“He will be one in every of two or three who can play as a centre-forward, although within the last couple of years, he’s been more of a number 10. He’s very strong [and] good with head and each feet. He could rating quite a bit within the Bundesliga. I do not know the worth, however it’s really tough for Bayern Munich to succeed in it. We’ll see what happens in the long run.”
