Sky Germany have reported FC Bayern München have made regular contact with Harry Kane’s entourage recently and are looking to make him their number one target next summer

This news comes again following the 1-0 Bundesliga defeat to Augsburg, when calls for a true central forward emerged in the media again. Florian Plettenberg from Sky Sport DE spoke on English outlet Football Daily on even further renewed interest for Harry Kane, who will turn 30 years old next summer. According to his sources, detailed discussions have already begun, and he is definitely the number one target

There was contact between the German rekordmeister and Charlie Kane, the player’s brother and agent. The England captain is extremely interested in a transfer to Bavaria and is a very likely option in the summer transfer window, but also heavily depends on the player’s performances and whether Tottenham will renew his contract with a significant pay rise

Harry Kane has been at Tottenham since he was a child, and has only left to Leicester on loan once since 2013 when he broke into the senior team. The three-time English Premier League top scorer hasn’t yet won a trophy in official competition (minus friendlies) and is desperate to retire with at least something in his trophy cabinet, hence the interest for moving to Munich

However, English clubs and players are notoriously hard to negotiate with, and the failing point could be the disagreement over the transfer fee, especially with Tottenham’s owners. The striker’s contract runs until 2024, and although there is talk of an extension, this has not been actioned yet and is progressing slowly as Tottenham do not see any need to rush for a deal. Meanwhile, FC Bayern would likely need a 9-digit fee to force a transfer, even with just one year remaining on the contract. It could even be a possibility the player transfers in 2024 after the expiry of the contract, without renewal
