In his latest column on Football Transfers, CBS Sports reporter Ben Jacobs has played down the chance of either Bayern Munich or Manchester United swooping for Harry Kane in the summer.

There have been plenty of reports over the last few weeks regarding United and Bayern’s interest in Kane, the latest of which came from Sky Sports on Wednesday.

The outlet claimed that while the striker is still on Bayern’s radar, the Bundesliga club are not optimistic about their chances of getting a deal for the 29-year-old over the line. The report also suggested that Kane’s desire to remain in the Premier League might play into the hands of United.

Jacobs has now dismissed the speculation linking the Tottenham man with a move to Allianz Arena as ‘wishful’, stating that the striker has no intention of moving to Germany.

He also added that Man Utd would have to pay £100m for Kane in the summer, even if he does not sign a new contract at Spurs.

The journalist suggested that the Glazers are not likely to spend that kind of money on one player in the summer if they are still in charge, particularly if they feel a takeover is getting closer.

Jacobs added that for the moment all the speculation about Kane’s future is mere ‘noise’ as the striker’s preference is to remain at Spurs.

I think Kane realises that no club apart from Manchester City would offer him guarantees of winning league titles, which is why he might be better of remaining at Tottenham as long as the club are moving in the right direction. Arsenal’s rise this season shows that things could suddenly fall into place for Spurs next season as long as we get our signings right.
