Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has revealed that Harry Kane is a ‘dream of the future’ type signing for the Bundesliga giants.
Kane has been linked with a move to Bayern over the last couple of weeks, with German publication Kicker reporting earlier this month that the Bundesliga champions were eyeing the Tottenham man as Robert Lewandowski’s successor.
This report was quickly shut down by SportBILD journalist Christian Falk, who insisted that the England captain is ‘not a topic’ for Bayern this summer.
Fabrizio Romano subsequently revealed on his YouTube channel that although the Bayern hierarchy are huge fans of Kane, a transfer is not on the cards this summer.
Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenburg clarified last week that while the German giants have discussed a move for Kane, the striker could be an option for the club next summer.
The 28-year-old, who currently has two years left on his contract with Tottenham (transfermarkt), said a few days ago that he is hopeful the Lilywhites can do ‘something special’ during the upcoming season (Football.London).
Kahn has now refused to distance Bayern from the speculation linking them with a future move for Kane.
When asked about the Spurs man being a target for next summer, the legendry goalkeeper told Christian Falk: “He is under contract at Tottenham. Sure, an absolute top striker, but that’s all a dream of the future. So let’s see what happens.”

Spurs Web Opinion
I believe Kane can be convinced to put pen to paper on a new deal with Spurs if we make a strong start to the new season and show signs of challenging at the top end of the table.
Even if he does not extend his deal, I doubt the 28-year-old will want to leave the Premier League as he clearly has his eye on Alan Shearer’s goal record.
