According to a report in Bild (27/07/22 – as relayed by Sport Witness), Bayern Munich have discreetly expressed an interest in Harry Kane to the striker’s entourage and hope the striker will be tempted by a move next summer.
Over the last couple of weeks, both Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn and head coach Julian Nagelsmann have spoken publicly to the media about the club’s interest in Kane.
Kahn first described the 28-year-old as a ‘top striker’ and admitted that he is ‘a dream of the future’ (Christian Falk).
Nagelsmann added fuel to the speculation on Saturday when he labelled the England captain as a ‘brilliant player’ and admitted the main problem in signing him would be Spurs’ asking price (MEN).
However, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold and Fabrizio Romano (CaughtOffside) have both subsequently confirmed that Tottenham have no intention of letting their talisman leave and plan on opening talks with the striker on a new deal over the coming months.
Meanwhile, Antonio Conte hit back at Nagelsmann’s comments, stating that the Bayern boss had been disrespectful to Tottenham by talking publicly about Kane (Football.London).
Bild have now claimed that Bayern have internally agreed to be more measured regarding their comments about the Spurs striker following Conte’s push back.
However, the report claims the German club wanted to make Kane aware that they want to sign him next summer and they now hope the striker’s temptation regarding a transfer will increase over the coming months.
Bild also add that Bayern have expressed their interest in the striker to Charlie Kane and are now waiting to see what happens with regards to the player’s future.
Spurs Web Opinion
The tactic from Bayern is clear as day and it is designed to stop Kane from agreeing on a new contract with Tottenham.
However, I am not sure that the striker will be tempted to move to Germany even if Spurs fail to live up to expectations during the 2022/23 campaign.
In the event that we make a strong start to the season and show signs of challenging at the top, I believe the 28-year-old will sign a new deal.
