Bayern Munich are reportedly unwilling to get into a bidding war for Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane this summer (Mirror).
Kane has been in prolific form for Spurs this season, registering 25 goals in all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).
Despite his individual efforts, Tottenham and Kane will be without a trophy once again this season.
There is a chance the North London side will fail to qualify for the Champions League too, which could prove detrimental to their chances of keeping hold of their prize asset.
It is believed Kane is also reluctant to sign a new deal with Spurs, which could open the door for a summer transfer (Football Insider).
Last month The Times suggested Bayern Munich were also still keen on signing Kane, but claimed any deal for the 29-year-old could cost upwards of £100 million.
Now, the latest from the Mirror states the German club would not be interested in getting wrapped up in a bidding war for Kane.
Apparently, Bayern are “prepared to shatter their current £70 million transfer record” to make a deal for Kane happen, but are thought to consider Tottenham’s valuation to be “too rich.”
When asked about the idea of spending €100 million on a player, Bayern’s chief financial officer Dr Michael Diederich said: “I don’t rule anything out but can we afford such a transfer and do we want such a transfer? We have to keep an eye on our profitability.”

There is a chance that, if Bayern cool their interest in Kane, and Levy plays hardball with United due to the domestic rival situation, Kane would have no real prospects of leaving this summer.
We don’t want to keep a player who wants to leave, but I’d never say no to another year of Kane at Spurs.
