Bild journalist Christian Falk has revealed that Bayern Munich are now increasingly pessimistic over their chances of managing to sign Harry Kane in the summer.
Over recent months, Bayern (90 min) and Manchester United (Telegraph) have been mooted as the two most likely destinations for Kane, who is now into the final 15 months of his contract at Tottenham.
However, ESPN reported on Monday that United are having doubts over whether they should make a move for the Spurs man as they are hesitant about negotiating with Daniel Levy.
The report explained that the Red Devils not want to risk a prolonged pursuit of the 29-year-old that drags out until the final hours of the summer transfer window and could thus prioritise a deal for Victor Osimhen or Dusan Vlahovic instead.
Falk has now revealed that Bayern are doubtful if Kane would be open to leaving the Premier League in the summer, with the Bundesliga club not having heard back from the striker’s representatives.
The journalist told CaughtOffside: “Bayern bosses are increasingly doubtful of the prospect of Kane wanting to leave England; they feel he wants to remain in the Premier League.
“FC Bayern fears his love of home more than any offer from Manchester United – that’s why the club hasn’t contacted the Tottenham star’s management for months.
“Bayern had lodged its interest with the relevant agents in 2022 and now they’re waiting to see if Kane sends a signal back. So far that hasn’t happened.
“The longer this situation drags on, we can see officials at Bayern slowly losing their faith in the striker departing the U.K at the end of the season.”
Spurs Web Opinion
It has always been quite clear that a move to Bayern has never really been on the cards for Kane. The decision that the 29-year-old will have to make is between staying at Tottenham and joining Man Utd.
Unless the Red Devils finish comfortably clear of Spurs in the table and closer to the top two, I do not think Kane will be desperate to move to Old Trafford.
