Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness confident of Harry Kane transfer from Tottenham Hotspur
The Kane saga has dragged on for a while now. He has entered the final year of his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and his future in north London is uncertain.
Bayern Munich have apparently had two bids rejected for the 29-year-old England international. The latest one was thought to be around £70million.
Daniel Levy is even said to have met with Bayern officials recently to discuss a potential transfer. Now, Hoeness has publicly claimed that Kane wants to join the Allianz Arena outfit.
He said in an interview, via Munich newspaper Abendzeitung (h/t Evening Standard):
“He [Kane] signalled very clearly that his decision was made. And if it stays that way, we’ll get him. Levy is clever. First we have to get him to name a price. He plays for time, is a great professional. I appreciate him very much.
“But on the other side [at Bayern] there aren’t any people who have been doing this since yesterday. He wants to play internationally [in Europe]. Tottenham won’t be there next season, unlike our club. He now has another opportunity to come to a top club in Europe.”
What to make of this?
Kane would know that a trophy at Spurs would mean more than a trophy he wins in Germany with Bayern. Tottenham are his boyhood club — one which will surely have his statue outside their stadium one day.
We may not be in Europe next season but we will target to be there soon. And our absence is largely down to the fact that the Premier League is highly competitive. It is a challenge to play here, be it for any club.
Hoeness’ public comments seem distastefully mistimed. These things should remain behind the curtains because they could have an effect on negotiations. Hopefully, Daniel Levy gets us at least £100million for Kane.

If not, it won’t be an unpopular decision if we keep Kane and risk losing him for nothing next year.
