Fabrizio Romano has dismissed the speculation linking Harry Kane with a move to Bayern Munich by insisting that Tottenham will not let their talismanic striker go this summer.
Kane’s Tottenham future seemed up in the air this time last year, with the striker seemingly pushing to join Manchester City at the time (The Athletic).
However, Spurs held firm amidst City’s advances and managed to hold on to the 28-year-old last summer.
While Kane had a sluggish start to the season, he was back to his best after Antonio Conte arrived at the club and played a key role in helping the Lilywhites secure Champions League qualification
Reports over the last couple of months have indicated that the England captain is loving life under Conte and is open to holding discussions with Tottenham over a new contract (Evening Standard).
However, German publication Kicker reported a few days ago that Bayern Munich are eyeing Kane as Robert Lewandowski’s successor at the Allianz Arena.
While Romano revealed that Bayern are huge fans of Kane, he insisted that the North London club will not sell the striker under any circumstances this summer.
He said on his YouTube channel: “Then guys, to end this video I want to mention Harry Kane. We had rumours about Harry Kane being a potential replacement for Lewandowski at Bayern.
“They are big fans of Harry Kane internally at Bayern, but Harry Kane is not on the market this summer.
“It is impossible for Kane to leave Tottenham because Tottenham want to keep him and the player is very happy with the new project, with Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici especially.”
Spurs Web Opinion
There are a whole host of reasons why this rumour was a complete non-starter. Firstly, I do not think Conte would have stayed at Spurs if he was not given assurances that the club will hang on to the likes of Kane and Son.
Secondly, Bayern do not tend to pay the kind of transfer fees that it would take to snap up Kane from Spurs. Finally, the 28-year-old is clearly eyeing Alan Shearer’s record, and so, I do not think he will want to leave the Premier League.
