Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has claimed the Bundesliga giants are ‘happy’ to learn that Harry Kane views the club favourably.

Over the summer, 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 29-year-old as a “top striker” and admitted that he is “a dream of the future” (Christian Falk).

Nagelsmann added fuel to the speculation when he labelled the England captain as a “brilliant player” and admitted the main problem in signing him would be Spurs’ asking price (90 min).

The print edition of Bild (27/07/22 – as relayed by Sport Witness) claimed a little over a month ago that the German club had discreetly expressed an interest in Kane to the striker’s entourage and hope he will be tempted by a move next summer. 

However, reports in England over recent weeks have suggested that Tottenham are optimistic about tying down their talisman to a new deal (The Athletic).

When asked about Kane potentially arriving at Bayern in the future, Salihamidzic has now told Sky Deutschland: “That’s too early to talk about, and if you look at our attack now, we have eight players for four positions. There’s a lot of fire in there.

“If you look at the training sessions, it’s great fun to watch. Some training matches are better than Bundesliga games, so it’s way too early to talk about it. I’m very happy with how offensively we played and how many goals we scored.”

Sky then informed the Bayern director that they have learned the Tottenham striker likes Bayern, to which the Bosnian responded: “We’re happy about that.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Even if Tottenham flatter to deceive this season and Kane chooses not to sign a new contract, I still do not expect him to consider joining Bayern Munich. The 29-year-old has his eye on Alan Shearer’s record and I do not see him leaving the Premier League until he overtakes the Newcastle legend.
