Journalist reveals Bayern Munich remain hopeful over Kane’s contract decision

Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk has revealed that Bayern Munich are hopeful that Harry Kane will reject an offer of a contract extension at Tottenham Hotspur.

Bayern have not hidden their admiration for Kane, with the Bundesliga giants making plenty of overtures towards the Tottenham man over recent months.

In July, the club’s CEO Oliver Kahn described the 29-year-old as a “top striker” and admitted that he is “a dream of the future” (Christian Falk) before manager Julian Nagelsmann also expressed his admiration for the Spurs star (90 min).

Antonio Conte did not take too kindly to Nagelsmann’s comments, insisting that they were disrespectful to Tottenham and adding that Kane remains an important part of his project (Sky Sports).

However, the speculation linking the England captain with a move to the Allianz Arena has not stopped, with Bild (27/07/22 – as relayed by Sport Witness) claiming a little over a month ago that the German club had discreetly expressed an interest to the striker’s entourage.

Meanwhile, reports in England over recent months have suggested that Tottenham are optimistic over Kane putting pen to paper on a new deal (The Athletic).

Falk has now taken to Twitter to state that Bayern plan on making an offer for the Spurs star next summer and hope that he will not extend his stay in north London.

Spurs Web Opinion

I am not surprised that Bayern are trying their best to entice Kane but the reality is that he is not going to want to leave the Premier League, even if he decides against signing a new contract with Spurs.

If we maintain the strong start we have had to the season, I believe that the 29-year-old could sign a new deal even before the World Cup as it is clear that he has bought into Conte’s project.

I would not be surprised if work is already underway behind the scenes on getting the striker to commit his future to Tottenham.
