Fabrizio Romano has revealed Tottenham want to offer Harry Kane a new contract to fend off any interest from Bayern Munich next year.
Bayern are thought to have shortlisted Kane as a target (Kicker) as they seek to fill the void left behind by recently departed striker Robert Lewandowski.
However, journalist Florian Plettenburg explained the England captain may not be an immediate option for the Bundesliga side, adding they could opt to make a pursuit next year instead.
Kane, whose deal is set to run for two more years, has not yet been approached by Tottenham to sign a new contract but Antonio Conte’s side are expected to eventually make a proposal (Football.London).
Romano has explained that ‘everything is perfect’ between Spurs and Kane at present and the Lilywhites intend to offer him fresh terms to ward off any approaches from Bayern going forward.
Romano told the Here We Go Podcast (12:40 – 27/7/22): “Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte are working together of course with Daniel Levy to build a future around Harry Kane.
“Now the atmosphere around Tottenham is completely different. They have Champions League football and Harry Kane seems to be happy with the team, with the atmosphere. He is English so to stay in England is always the best solution.
“At the moment everything is perfect between Tottenham and Kane. They want to offer him a new contract to avoid an attempt from Bayern [Munich] for next summer in 2023 and so it is true that Bayern are in love with Harry Kane.
“But Tottenham have no intention to let him go, not just this summer but for the future. Conte considers him a key part of his project.”

Kane has a newfound confidence since Conte arrived at Spurs and that should work in the club’s favour regarding a new contract being signed.
A new deal would definitely put off the likes of Bayern as they would then be met with a similar response Spurs gave to Manchester City last year.
