CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs has said that the speculation linking Harry Kane with a move to Bayern Munich is ‘exaggerated’ and there is no indication that the striker wants to leave Tottenham.
While all the talk over the last couple of weeks has been on the contract situation of Antonio Conte, Kane’s future is also a matter Spurs have to address sooner rather than later, with the striker having just 18 months left to run on his deal (Transfermarkt).
Over the last few months, multiple German outlets have run stories linking the 29-year-old with a move to Bayern Munich.
The latest of those came from Bayern Insider Podcast (as relayed by Fussball Nachrichten) a couple of weeks ago, where it was asserted that the Bundesliga giants putting together a ‘precise plan’ to lure the 29-year-old to the Allianz Arena next summer.
The report explained that while Julian Nagelsmann’s side are aware that it would be a ‘difficult mission’ to prize Kane away from Spurs, they believe that their chances will improve the longer the Spurs star delays a new contract in North London.
However, Jacobs has now assuaged Spurs fans’ fears about the England captain’s future, claiming that the striker believes the club are moving in the right direction.
The journalist said on the Spurs Chat Podcast: “I think with Harry Kane, it again is a calm situation.
“There’s not a feeling from sources that actually, he wants to go anywhere, provided that the Tottenham project is progressing and he’s getting games and goals.
“Those links with Bayern Munich are exaggerated from what I’ve been told. I’ve been told many, many times that from the Spurs end that they fully believe Harry Kane will sign a new contract.
“He doesn’t have any great desire to go to the Bundesliga and he feels that Tottenham is moving in the right direction.”

It does seem like Conte’s future could have a huge bearing on Kane’s. If the Italian commits his future to Spurs, I am confident that the striker will also pen a long-term contract.
In the event that Tottenham are not able to tie Conte down, I suspect Levy will try to lure Pochettino back to the club, hoping the Argentine can convince Kane to stay.
