Bild have claimed that Bayern Munich’s CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen called Daniel Levy on Monday to ‘calm things down’ after the German club’s Honorary President Uli Hoeness made public comments about Harry Kane.
The game of Harry Kane poker between Tottenham and Bayern continues, with The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare reporting on Tuesday that Spurs are expected to cash in on the striker if he does not commit to a new deal this summer.
Hoeness claimed on Sunday that the 29-year-old will make the move to the Allianz Arena if he ‘keeps his word’ and added that Tottenham will have to eventually ‘buckle’ and soften their stance (Sport 1 via Sky Sports).
It was subsequently reported by journalist Kerry Hau that Hoeness’ statement was not well received by the Bayern hierarchy, with many feeling that it was ‘unfortunate and unnecessary’.
Bayern called Levy to smooth things over this week
Bild have now revealed that Levy was ‘surprised and upset’ at the 71-year-old’s claim, which is why the club’s CEO Dressen called the Tottenham chairman the very next day to ‘smooth waters’.
The report explains that Dressen wanted to maintain the good connection that he had built with Levy when the pair met in London last Thursday.

It is becoming increasingly clear that Levy is open to the idea of selling Kane to Bayern this summer if the striker does not sign a new contract.
If the England captain does end up leaving, the sale should be done within the next week or two so that there is sufficient time to secure a top-quality replacement.
